The title race in Germany's top-flight is developing into one of the most intriguing football stories of 2020.
Third-placed Borussia Mönchengladbach trails leaders RB Leipzig by just two points, with perennial champions Bayern Munich sandwiched directly in between the two.
Leipzig went down 2-0 to Eintracht Frankfurt in the last round, snapping a sequence of 18 matches where they had scored at least once. With Bayern breathing down their necks, and the congested nature of the table, this weekend's fixture for the table-toppers against Mönchengladbach takes on extra significance.
Don't rule out Borussia Dortmund either, they're lurking dangerously in 4th.
