RB Leipzig vs Arminia Bielefeld
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 28 November 2020
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Red Bull Arena.
The Red Bulls are vying to establish themselves as a heavyweight in the German top flight, along with Bayern and Dortmund – essentially forming a triumvirate. Judging their performances in the last two years – they are on the course to do just that.
As of now, they are placed fourth in the table, lagging by just two points behind toppers and defending champions Bayern.
This weekend, they are pitted against possibly the worst team in the competition at the moment.
The Blues were promoted to the top flight just the last season, and they have found it extremely hard to raise any challenge to the veterans here. They have lost their last six league matches on the trot, and to further complicate things for them – they have also scored the least number of goals in the league.
Moreover, they also have a 100% winless record in h2h meetings against this opponent.
By all means, expect the in-form Leipzig to post a huge win against these massive underdogs.
Leipzig vs Arminia Bielefeld: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest encounter had ended in a 1-1 draw, which had taken place four years back.
- Before that, Julian Nagelsmann’s men had recorded a 0-1 win on the road. And these two have been the only h2h encounters so far.
Leipzig vs Arminia Bielefeld: Prediction
The Red Bulls were held to a goalless draw the last match-day, by Frankfurt. In the meantime, Uwe Neuhaus’s men lost 1-2 at home against Leverkusen.
Going on, the Blues are on a six-game losing run in the league, and they had conceded a total of 15 goals from their past five games alone.
They had also lost their latest road game 5-0, and are on a winless run in away fixtures for the last six months. Do also note that they had failed to score goals in four of their former eight such match-ups on the road.
On the other hand, their counterparts had won six of their preceding ten overall fixtures, and they are on a six-game winning run at home. In fact, they had recorded a combined scorecard of 16-3 from their preceding six appearances at home.
In addition, they also have a 100% unbeaten record in h2h meetings against this opponent.
Taking these stats into account, expect a dominating win by Leipzig this weekend, and in all probability a high-scoring fixture by them as well.
