Borussia Dortmund have been really spectacular in the Bundesliga this season, and are still sitting at the top of the league table. They were in excellent shape before the winter break and will now look to keep it that way when they will be hosted by RB Leipzig on Saturday. RB Leipzig were in pretty solid shape before the break and are one of the best teams at home this season.

Total: 2.75 Goals
RB Leipzig (9-4-4) played a spectacular match right before the winter break, at home against Werder Bremen. They made a great start in that match and were already leading by two goals by the end of the first half. But their opponents were greatly improved in the second half and managed to pull even with two goals in a ten-minute span. Even so, RB Leipzig scored a late goal at the 87th minute and eventually won that match by 2-3. They were in mediocre form right before the break (2-1-1) but now that the Europa League is out of the way, they will focus on their domestic duties. RB Leipzig are currently sitting at the 4th spot of the league table with 31 points, three ahead of Wolfsburg and two behind Gladbach. RB Leipzig have also been excellent at home so far in the league (7-0-2) having conceded just six goals there.
On the other hand, Borussia Dortmund (13-1-3) struggled more than they should in their last match where they eventually beat Gladbach by 1-2 at home. They were in total control of that match and could have easily scored more goals. Their opponents temporarily pulled even at the end of the first half but Reus scored the winning goal at the 54th minute. Borussia Dortmund have been in tremendous shape all season and even more so lately, having lost just once in their last nine matches in all competitions (7-1-1). They are still leading the Bundesliga with 42 points, six ahead of arch-rivals Bayern Munich. They have been equally good on the road so far (5-1-2), where they have won four of their last five league matches.
Borussia Dortmund destroyed RB Leipzig by a massive 1-4 at home in the premiere of the Bundesliga and we now have balance in this match-up (2-2-1). RB Leipzig are actually undefeated in this venue against their opponents (1-0-1) and can certainly fight for at least a point here.
This should be a really careful match between the two sides so the Under 2.75 is surely something to consider, along with the Draw that would have everyone pleased. RB Leipzig should be better after the break so I will give them a few more chances here.
