A pair of the usual Bundesliga title chasers will square off on Saturday with one aiming to stay near the top of the table, and the other hoping to rebound from a humiliating UEFA Champions League loss.
RB Leipzig hosts Borussia Dortmund on Saturday with the hosts needing a statement win to spark its season. Marco Rose replaced Domenico Tedesco as manager midweek after the Bundesliga club lost 4-1 at home to Shakhtar Donetsk. RB Leipzig is sitting in 11th place in the league standings with a 1-2-2 record, struggling for any consistency during the early stages of its schedule. A lackluster performance against an in-form Dortmund squad will only further fuel the fire on the RB Leipzig front office nearing the international break.
Borussia Dortmund rolled past FC Copenhagen 3-0 in UCL play on Tuesday, using two assists from Gio Reyna to earn its first three points of the competition. Jude Bellingham, Raphael Guerreiro, and Marco Reus all scored goals in the shutout victory and will be pushing to add to their goal tallies in the Matchday 6 showdown at Red Bull Arena.
Several MLS sides remain in a heated battle for 2022’s playoff fate, and plenty of eyes have been fixated on the Seattle Sounders the last few weeks.
Seattle is six points out of the picture as things stand, and must find a way to beat leading MVP candidate Sebastián Druissi and Austin FC on Saturday to avoid one of the more awkward seasons of all time. (Squaring the Concacaf Champions League triumph with a first-ever season falling short of the playoff line)
In the east, CF Montréal and the Columbus Crew have been two of the sneaky good sides as of late and their head-to-head contest should be a telling one in terms of playoff readiness.
