RB Leipzig vs Hannover
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 15 September 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Red Bull Arena, Leipzig.
RB Leipzig will be looking for their first win of the season on Saturday afternoon when they host Hannover in the third round of Bundesliga.
The Bulls are still looking for the right form under Ralf Rangnick who does not look to have what it takes to guide them towards the heights of the Ralph Hasenhuttl period.
The Bulls barely went past Ukrainian Zorya to reach the Europa League group stage only thanks to a 90-th minute winner from their star man Emil Forsebrg in the reverse fixture at Red Bull Arena.
They started the domestic league by clinching only a single point in two games even though they played the recently-promoted Fortuna Dusseldorf in the second round.
RB Leipzig vs Hannover Head-to-head
The two teams only met each other twice and RB Leipzig came on top on both occasions.
The Bulls bagged five goals in two victories in high-scoring affairs in the previous term of Bundesliga.
RB Leipzig vs Hannover Prediction
Hannover could represent a tough challenge for Rangnick’s squad here even though the visitors are also yet to pick up their maiden victory of the season.
The Reds had a rather complicated schedule in two opening rounds, but their firm defensive line managed to hold on to draws against Werder Bremen away and Borussia Dortmund at home.
Andre Breitenreiter’s men were not prolific up front, but they only conceded a single goal in the process and wed not be surprised to see the hosts struggling to break them down on Saturday.
Bookies see RB Leipzig as pretty clear favourites to grab the spoils here, but we just don’t find any value in backing the home win at 1.50 under these circumstances.
Instead, you can back Hannover not to ship three or more goals on the occasion at the same 1.50 odds. Braver tipsters can go with the visitors not to lose at 2.60.
RB Leipzig vs Hannover Bet Tips
Leipzig Under 2.5 Team Goals @ 1.50 (1/2)
Hannover or Draw Double Chance @ 2.60 (8/5).
