Instead of building on the opener, the Bulls went on to concede four goals and suffer a disaster against BVB, a result which certainly killed both momentum and confidence for Ralf Rangnick’s troops ahead of the much-important Europa League play-offs rematch against Zorya.

The German outfit did not have problems en route to this stage, easing past both Hacken and CSU Craiova thanks to confident home wins. But players might feel a huge pressure here against the experienced Zorya side, following a goalless draw in the first leg in Ukraine.

The visitors established themselves as regular Europa League participants as they reached the play-offs stage for the fourth consecutive time this year and they’ll be anything but a naïve opposition for the Bulls here.

RB Leipzig vs Zorya: Head-to-head

Leipzig were in full control of proceedings in their maiden H2H encounter with Zorya seven days ago in Zaporozhye, but they just failed to convert in the final third.

Zorya were handicapped as Bogdan Lednaev got sent off 17 minutes into the game, but they held on with a ten-man squad against such a string opposition, confirming to be very tough to break down.

RB Leipzig vs Zorya: Prediction

Leipzig remain heavy favourites to advance and fix the impression after a dreadful Bundesliga start. They still have a super string line-up with Forsberg, Sabitzer, Poulsen, Werner and Augustin up front and Zorya will need a miracle to pull off an upset here even though they’ve already defeated German opposition Hertha BSC in the previous term of the competition.

Zorya went past Sporting Braga in the third qualifying round, but they head into this after failing to score in three consecutive games in all competitions. Leipzig’s clean sheet is paid at 1.50, a bet certainly worth backing under these circumstances.

Since the Germans won both home ties by two or more goals difference so far in the competition, we’ll back them to do the same this time about, a scenario paid at the 1.65 odds. Obviously, be careful with the stakes after the Bulls’ initial Bundesliga failure.
