Hacken vs RB Leipzig
UEFA – Europa League
Date: Thursday, 2 August 2018
Kick-Off at 17:30 UK
Venue: Bravida Arena (Goteborg).
RB Leipzig travel to Goteborg for the return match of their Europa League Qualifiers clash against Hacken on the back of a 4-0 home win, where goals from Bruma, Matheus Cunha, Kevin Kampl, and Jean-Kevin Augustin proved enough for a convincing win at Red Bull Arena and a huge step towards the next round.
Die Rotten Bullen have been building on their team spirits through pre-season too and we’ve seen them regularly net numbers of goals, as they beat FC Grimma and held ZFC Meuselwitz to a 2-2 draw. They’ll now want to seal the deal at Bravida Arena and it’s hard to make a case for it to go any other way on the day.
It does feel the clash comes at a bad time for Hacken as they’ve struggled to return to the winning ways across competitions, as they suffered four consecutive losses and only ended the streak on Sunday through a 1-1 draw against Orebro. They’ve been regularly conceding goals and Andreas Alm has obviously struggled to find a cure for their defensive woes!
Hacken vs RB Leipzig: Head-to-head
This is the sides’ first head-to-head clash ever and RB Leipzig have already proven their role of heavy favourites.
We’ve seen four goals in the first leg, as Leipzig bagged a 4-0 home win on Thursday.
Hacken have been a tougher side to beat at this ground but have no recent records to boast.
Hacken vs RB Leipzig: Prediction
We’ll thus back RB Leipzig to capitalize on the woes and bag another win over the rivals, which comes at 1.53 and looks like buying money for old rope at this point. They’ve been rock-solid recently and should sail past the Swedish rivals at this point.
We should be in for another exciting clash too and we do expect to see goals, as we also stick our necks out for Over 3.5 goals FT at 2.25. They’ve been scoring numbers of goals but we expect the home side to find the net on the day as well.
