Borussia Dortmund overturned a two-goal halftime deficit to beat Eintracht Frankfurt 3-2 and is now playing host to Freiburg, while RB Leipzig is seeking its first away win of the Bundesliga season as it travels to play Stuttgart on Saturday. Our sportsbook is offering a great set of odds for this parlay bet.
Stuttgart vs. RB Leipzig: First Away Win
Leipzig kicked off the new year on the back of its worst start to a Bundesliga season, but controlled proceedings for long periods at the Red Bull Arena. Andre Silva’s brace and goals from Szoboszlai and Nkunku brought a crucial victory that helped them climb into the top half of the standings.
Probably their most important player this season, Christopher Nkunku has featured in all 26 of Leipzig’s competitive games so far this term, starting 24 and scoring eight goals with seven assists.
Basically, he was directly involved in almost half of Leipzig’s 34 goals scored this term. He’s one of the players to watch and if you’re betting online and you love your props, back him to find the back of the net.
Unfortunately, RB Leipzig is dreadful on the road, being winless in eight games, losing four and scoring just five goals. On the other side, Stuttgart was kept to a goalless draw by the worst Bundesliga team, Greuther Furth.
They have several players who tested positive, including one of their best strikers Silas Katompa Mvumpa, who’s also injured.
They are equal on points with Augsburg, the first team from the red zone, and they won just three from nine home games while conceding 18 goals in the process. They got trashed by RB Leipzig 4-0 in the reverse match.
They lost their last five head-to-heads against them, scoring just one goal in the process. We are backing the visitors to win their first match of the season.
Pick: RB Leipzig -140
Dortmund vs. Freiburg: Goal-fest
We started the year with a great Bundesliga parlay win at +242 as Dortmund and Eintracht offered us an entertaining match with five goals, while Hoffenheim covered the -1 spread by beating Augsburg 3-1 on home soil. Let’s make it two in a row in Germany.
With 20 minutes to go until the final whistle, Dortmund was trailing Eintracht by two goals with Rafael Borre scoring a brace in the first half. Thorgan Hazard came from the bench and kick-started the comeback with Jude Bellingham and Mahmoud Dahoud completing it with two late goals.
Dortmund slowly wrestled back the initiative in the second half, overtaking Eintracht for distance covered and challenges won, but their defensive frailties were still there.
They enter this clash as huge favorites at -200 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest soccer odds. They dropped all three points in the reverse match, losing 2-1 on the road, but they won the previous three head-to-head at this venue and kept three clean sheets.
They cut the gap at the top of the table to six points after Bayern Munich lost to Gladbach in the same round.
Bellingham celebrated a memorable 45th Bundesliga appearance by scoring his third Bundesliga goal. He’s one of Dortmund’s most smart and skillful players, still young but a potential leader for BVB. Dortmund is almost perfect on home soil, winning eight of nine fixtures in front of its fans and scoring 26 goals.
They are a scoring machine, but they are also conceding goals, struggling to keep clean sheets and missing many of their important defenders with injuries or Covid.
They have an amazing individual quality and a huge attacking firepower. They scored at least twice in each of their nine home games and in nine of their previous 10 mutual home encounters against Freiburg.
They are one of the teams we love to include in our soccer picks and parlays when it comes to goals. On the other side, Freiburg enters this match on the back of a 2-2 draw at home against relegation-threatened Arminia Bielefeld.
They played a good first half, being two goals up after 46 minutes, but they somehow managed to allow two late goals and drop two points. They are still fourth in the standings with 30 points earned in 18 games, but Leverkusen, FC Koln, Union Berlin and Eintracht Frankfurt are breathing down their neck.
They are very strong on the road, scoring 15 goals in nine away matches, and once again we expect them to contribute on the scoresheet and take advantage of Dortmund’s defensive struggles.
