Bayern Munich remain the team to beat in the 2020/2021 Bundesliga following their comeback win over VfB Stuttgart.
Robert Lewandowski scored his 12th Bundesliga goal of the season in the Südderby as the defending champions consolidated their position at the summit.
The Polish hitman was rested for the mid-week UEFA Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid and will be raring to go at the Allianz Arena where he holds the record for most Bundesliga goals by an FC Bayern player (106).
Lewandowski has scored against all 18 of the Bundesliga’s current clubs but was kept quiet in his previous meeting with Leipzig.
Julian Nagelsmann’s side are in fact the only team to have stopped Bayern from scoring since Hansi Flick took charge on 3 November, 2019.
Die Roten Bullen have proven that they can shut out the best team in Europe while Angelino’s team-leading four goals from left-wing-back are reasons to believe that they will cause their hosts trouble in their bid for a first win on Munich soil, one which would take them top of the table.
Eintracht v Dortmund
Borussia Dortmund could move up to second for a couple of hours at least if they beat Eintracht Frankfurt.
BVB suffered a shock 2-1 home defeat to struggling 1. FC Cologne a week ago and will be without their attacking superstar, Erling Haaland due to a hamstring injury.
This simply means that exciting attacking prospect, Youssoufa Moukoko could gain more minutes on the pitch.
With Makoto Hasebe (36) and Youssoufa Moukoko (16), the oldest and youngest players in the Bundesliga could come up against each other on Saturday.
Freiburg v Gladbach
SC Freiburg will hope their record scorer, Nils Petersen can do the business against a Borussia Monchengladbach team juggling domestic and Champions League competitions.
Freiburg have not won since Match-day 1, however, and could fall into the bottom three if results go against them.
Arminia v Mainz
Likewise fighting it out in the basement, DSC Arminia Bielefeld and 1. FSV Mainz 05 lock horns on Saturday afternoon.
Cologne v Wolfsburg
Meanwhile, Dortmund-slaying 1. FC Cologne will play host to unbeaten VfL Wolfsburg.
Wolfsburg are one of two teams left in this season’s Bundesliga yet to taste defeat while Bayer 04 Leverkusen are the other.
Schalke v Leverkusen
A trip to rock-bottom FC Schalke 04 who have gone 25 league matches and counting without a win could see Bayer 04 Leverkusen’s run continue.
Werder v Stuttgart
SV Werder Bremen, the losing party in an eight-goal thriller with Wolfsburg a week ago host VFB Stuttgart.
Hoffenheim v Augsburg
TSG Hoffenheim entertain FC Augsburg in the final Match-day 10 encounter.
Despite the best efforts of Andrej Kramaric who was enjoying an 11-goal hot streak dating back to last season prior to the 1-1 draw with Mainz, Hoffenheim have not won domestically since inflicting the only defeat of the calendar year on pacesetters, Bayern on Match-day 2.
