French Cup Preview

PSG will be back in action on Friday evening, as they look to regain the French Cup. The Parisians last won this competition in the 2020-21 season, as they landed their 14th honour. However, they will certainly have questions to answer this weekend, as they were beaten for the first time domestically in their previous fixture. PSG was beaten 3-1 away from home against Lens on New Year’s Day, which saw their unbeaten record in France come to an end. Their lead at the top of the Ligue 1 standings remains a healthy one, but a second straight defeat could lead to questions surrounding the manager. But, the Parisians have been dominant throughout recent history at this stage of the competition. This will be a big moment in the history of Chateauroux, as they welcome PSG to town for the French Cup tie. They currently sit 14th in National, after winning just four of their 16 games this term. Their form over their previous five games has been sketchy to say the least, as they haven’t won over that period. However, they came through the previous round in excellent fashion, as they beat Lege-Cap-Ferret 4-1 away from home. Florian Bianchini, Ferris N’Goma, and Celal Bozkurt were among the scorers in that win. Their best-ever showing in the competition came in 2003-04, as they were beaten in the final by PSG.

Chateauroux vs PSG Head to Head

The only previous competitive meeting between the sides came in the 2004 French Cup final. On that occasion, PSG claimed victory following Pedro Pauleta’s strike with just 25 minutes remaining.

Chateauroux vs PSG Prediction

This should be a testing fixture on the road for PSG, but it remains extremely difficult to see past the reigning French champions. PSG look to be the best bet to win this game, and they could claim a 3-0 win on the road. Make sure to bet on Chateauroux vs PSG with 22Bet!"

RB Leipzig will be looking to resurrect their flailing league form in the Bundesliga when they welcome second-on-the-table Borussia Dortmund to the Red Bull Arena on Saturday for a league clash at 14:30 GMT.

Match Preview

Can RB Leipzig Revive their Form in the Bundesliga with a Home Win against Dortmund?

Domenico Tedesco will still be looking to get his team in form, even with the speculation that he might be sacked. This has been heightened by Leipzig’s abject 1-4 defeat to Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday night at the Red Bull Arena.

RB Leipzig will be looking to go back to basics as they devise an approach that will help reduce the number of goals they concede while bolstering their attacking play. 

The intensity will also need to be right given they are playing against a Dortmund side that plays with a high tempo and pressing. 

Playing at home, Leipzig will seek to get the fans on their side from early on, as they look to play themselves out of their current poor form and a bad run of results in the Bundesliga and Europe.

Can Dortmund make it Three Wins on the Bounce in the Bundesliga against RB Leipzig?

Borussia Dortmund will be looking to continue with their good form when they face RB Leipzig on Saturday in the Bundesliga. This match comes after Dortmund convincingly beat Copenhagen 3-0. 

Edin Terzić will look to maintain his side’s distance to the top of the table early on. After hauling 12 points out of the available 15, he will want Dortmund to maintain their winning run by extending it to three consecutive matches in the Bundesliga.

Dortmund will maintain their high-energy and high-tempo approach to the game as they look to take advantage of the low confidence and poor form of RB Leipzig. 

Form Guide

RB Leipzig

RB Leipzig have won just once after five matches in the Bundesliga this season. They have collected five points out of the available 15. In the five outings, they have triumphed once, drawn twice, and lost twice.

Two consecutive draws against VfB Stuttgart (1-1) and Koln (2-2) meant that Leipzig were winless in their first two fixtures. However, this record was exacerbated when they lost 2-1 against Union Berlin.

Although they got their first win of the Bundesliga season in the 2-0 triumph against Wolfsburg, Leipzig could not capitalize on it as they lost their next game 0-4 away to Eintracht Frankfurt.

Borussia Dortmund

Dortmund have won four times and lost once in their opening five Bundesliga outings. They have hauled 12 points and dropped 3 in the process. They are currently second on the table behind SC Freiburg and a point ahead of third-placed Bayern Munich.

Dortmund opened their account in the Champions League Group G with an impressive 3-0 win over Copenhagen at the Westfalenstadion. They will be looking to bolster this run of form when they face RB Leipzig on Saturday.

Edin Terzić will especially be focused on bolstering their away form to ensure that they do not drop points early on as they look to keep within touching distance of the early Bundesliga pacesetters. 

Possible Starting Lineups

RB Leipzig

Gulacsi; M. Simakan, W. Orban, A. Diallo, M. Halstenberg; K. Laimer, X. Schlager; D. Szoboszlai, C. Nkunku, T. Werner; A. Silva

Borussia Dortmund

Meyer; T. Meunier, N. Sule, N. Schlotterbeck, R. Guerreiro; J. Bellingham, S. Ozcan; J. Brandt, M. Reus, T. Hazard; A. Modeste

Players to Watch

C. Nkunku

The Frenchman has been a rare ray of shine for RB Leipzig in a campaign that has started badly with poor form and a lack of coherence in their play.

Nkunku has maintained his high standards of performance with his goal-scoring exploits helping the team to five points.

However, his best form only comes when the team is playing better, and their talisman will need the team to make a massive turnaround this season, beginning with the home clash with Borussia Dortmund on Saturday.

Nkunku will important for Leipzig going forward, pressing, and connecting midfield with attack. His high energy and runs will be instrumental in maintaining a high tempo and posing an attacking threat to the Dortmund defense.

M. Reus

The German is a senior and important part of the Borussia Dortmund team. He is the creative focal point of the team that helps connect the midfield to attack seamlessly.

At his age, Reus still maintains a high-tempo and high-energy approach to his game. These attributes are important to Dortmund’s high-octane approach to their matches, and Reus helps set the tempo from the front.

Reus’ creativity and eye for a pass are important to Dortmund; they help in opening defenses up and creating chances. His runs can also be defense splitting, whereas his finishing is crucial in getting the goals Dortmund needs to keep up with the Bundesliga title chase this term.

Reus will be instrumental for Dortmund on Saturday as they look to beat Leipzig and take the three precious points they need.


RB Leipzig will focus on their defensive structure as they seek to minimize the chances they give away to the opposition, and thus say in the game for as long as possible.

Dortmund will play on the front foot, dominating possession, and implementing a high press across the pitch. This will be designed to pin Leipzig in their gal and create many goal-scoring chances.

Borussia Dortmund have the form and quality to win this match and make three wins on the trot.
