RB Leipzig vs Schalke Prediction & Match Preview

RB Leipzig vs Schalke
Germany – 1. Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 28 September 2019
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Red Bull Arena (Leipzig).

Two titans from the top tier of the German league are taking on each other this weekend, with the potential to make huge ramifications to the podium spots. Leipzig has been nothing but phenomenal this season as they raced to the top of the standings leaving the others in the dust. As of now, they remain the only one along with Bayern to stand unbeaten in the whole competition.

In fact, disregarding a single draw, which was against the all-conquering Munich outfit as well, the toppers have won every other tie.

Opponents Schalke are not far behind as well. They are on a three-game winning streak and have lost just once this season, which had come against defending champions Bayern.

It will essentially boil down to how the Royal Blues will manage their away handicap, considering both sides are in form.

  • Disregarding a sole tie, every other one at this stadium had the hosts scoring twice or more.

RB Leipzig vs Schalke Prediction

The Red Bulls are easily one of them, if not, the best team in the competition at the moment. They possess a 100% win-record as of now if their draw against the Bavarians is not taken into consideration.

The team has also scored the most number of goals after Dortmund, and the reigning champions as well, and to further improve their chances, the team has been allotted the home advantage too.

In addition, recent h2h encounters too have seen Leipzig dominating. In fact, not only do the visitors have been unable to record more than one win against this opponent in the last decade, but they are completely winless at this venue too.

As such, count on the toppers putting on a great show to post the three points on the board.

Coming to goals though, the Blues are a high-performing group in the top tier of the table. They have lost just once against Bayern this whole 2019-20 season, across all competitions, and they have been unbeaten on the road in their former ten trips.

Consequentially, BTTS seems like a great option to back in this high-profile battle.
