RB Leipzig vs Bayer Leverkusen: Preview and Predictions

RB Leipzig vs Bayer Leverkusen
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Monday, 9 April 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK
Venue: Red Bull Arena (Leipzig).

The Matchday No 29 is set to be closed with a mouth-watering clash between RB Leipzig and Bayer Leverkusen on Monday evening at Red Bull Arena. The match has the ingredients of being a true six-pointer in the battle for the Champions League spots given the teams are separated by only a single point right on the brink of the top four.

The Bulls are in a better position being that one point above in fourth, but a loss here would obviously significantly halt their push for the most elite football competition next year. They will come into this with a decent form, having won three on the bounce across competitions. The fatigue could, however, play a role here, since Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side has played tough 90 minutes on Thursday against Olympique Marseille.

Leipzig have managed to garn the minimum advantage ahead of the trip to Stade Velodrome thanks to their top scorer Timo Werner whose goals made the difference against the Phocians. In Bundesliga, the team has notched two super important wins netting five past Bayern Munich and Hannover 96.

The visitors will come into the game in completely opposite mood after failing to score at all in last two games. They’ve first shockingly fallen to Koln 2-0 away at RheinEnergieStadion before playing a goalless draw at home against Augsburg after the international break.

RB Leipzig vs Bayer Leverkusen: Head-to-head

This will only be the fourth head to head clash between RB Leipzig and Bayer Leverkusen.

The Bulls have proven out to be a very strong opposition for Die Werkself so far.

Leipzig have won two and drawn one of past three games.

RB Leipzig vs Bayer Leverkusen: Prediction

Hasenhuttl’s men will come into this as the form favourites, but we are a bit concerned about their fatigue due to a rough schedule and Europa League ties.

Given the match has a massive importance, we expect it to be a close knit contest with very few goal-scoring chances. Under 2.5 goals FT is our main betting suggestion, while the alternative option would be the draw at 3.50.
