The yellow wall of Dortmund will welcome Leipzig on Saturday afternoon at Signal Iduna Park for a crunchy tie in the league. The red bull will be looking to challenge the league leaders Bayern Munich’s dominance and hope for them to lose points in this crucial stage of the season.

Both teams successfully qualified for the domestic cup competition and will lock horn for a trophy later this month.
