    RB Leipzig to continue good form at Dusseldorf

    RB Leipzig have emerged as realistic title contenders in the Bundesliga this season. Julian Nagelsmann’s team take their title challenge to Fortuna Dusseldorf on Saturday evening.

    Die Roten Bullen are currently second in the Bundesliga table, just a point behind league leaders Monchengladbach. A 3-1 home victory over Hoffenheim last time out in the German top-flight means that Leipzig have won five straight games in the league, scoring at least twice in all five matches. The visitors last six league games have also produced over 2.5 goals.

    The form of Germany international Timo Werner has been the key to the visitor’s title challenge this season, as the 23-year-old has now scored 15 goals in just 14 Bundesliga appearances.

    Nagelsmann’s team have a good recent away record in the Bundesliga, winning five of their last seven matches on their travels. The visitors have been lethal on the road in the German top-flight, scoring at least three goals in all five of their recent away wins.

    The omens are good for yet another Leipzig win, as they are unbeaten in six meetings with Fortuna Dusseldorf, having recorded four victories.

    Fortuna have struggled for form in the Bundesliga this season and they are currently 16th place in the relegation play-off spot. A four-game winless run in the German top-flight has not helped their chances of escaping the danger zone. Last time out, the home side suffered a 5-0 defeat against Dortmund.

    One of the biggest problems for Fortuna Dusseldorf of late in the Bundesliga has been conceding too many goals, as they have conceded at least two goals in three of their last four league outings.

    The home sides recent record on home soil has not been great, as they have won just two of their last six league outings.

    Forebet predicts that RB Leipzig will record a victory in a high-scoring encounter to stay in touch with league leaders Monchengladbach.
