RB Leipzig vs Bayer Leverkusen
Date: Sunday, 11 November 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Red Bull Arena (Leipzig).
The Bulls began the season in a slower fashion, but they grew in form rapidly ever since early-October. They made a streak of four wins and two draws in Bundesliga to climb up to the 4th place in the ladder and join the battle for the very summit.
Ralf Rangnick did a tremendous job on improving team’s defensive displays as Leipzig kept six consecutive clean sheets in all competitions. It’s quite an impressive record given they played the likes of Schalke, Hoffenheim and Hertha in last three matches.
Can the Bulls keep such an exquisite form going on Sunday afternoon when they play host to Bayer Leverkusen in one of the most interesting clashes of the Matchday? They certainly head into the game as favourites, especially if we know Bayer fell 1-4 at home to Hoffenheim last weekend.
RB Leipzig vs Bayer Leverkusen Head-to-head
The two teams are set to take on each other only for the fifth time ever.
Leipzig won two, drew one and lost one so far.
It’s Leverkusen who took four points from two last term meetings with the Bulls netting six goals in the process.
Four or more goals were seen in three of four head to head games.
RB Leipzig vs Bayer Leverkusen Prediction
Heiko Herrlich seemed to have found the winning formula as Bayer notched an impressive 11-goal tally in back-to-back wins over Werder Bremen and Borussia Monchengladbach. Nevertheless, the run came to an end in the cruelest of fashions as Die Werkself suffered a tough 1-4 defeat at home to Hoffenheim eight days ago.
The lack of consistency keeps Leverkusen in the bottom half of the standings after 10 rounds of the campaign. They have been way too easy to break down ever since the start of the season and it’s really hard to expect hem produce a positive result against an in-form Leipzig side here.
The home win is our top betting suggestion at 1.83 odds, while you can also back the Bulls to net two or more goals past the struggling defense of Leipzig’s at the 1.61 odds.
