Bayer Leverkusen vs RB Leipzig Prediction & Betting tips
Bayer Leverkusen and RB Leipzig are linked together in this round. It promises to be an interesting competition in the BayArena.
On the previous matchday, Bayer Leverkusen came into action on Friday evening. Peter Bosz’s team played the tricky away game against TSG Hoffenheim. Initially, Leverkusen was the better team, but they could only express that moderately in the score. They rested with a 1-1 score. An own goal by Sven Bender led to the defeat of Leverkusen. That defeat was flattering, with a whopping 4-1.
It was the second loss in a row for Bosz and his team. That Werkself still has to work hard to secure Europa League football for next year. Due to the recent loss of points, the top four have since disappeared, so they will probably miss the lucrative Champions League again next year. Leverkusen benefits from a good series, that much is clear. Bosz has a fairly complete group at his disposal on Saturday.
RB Leipzig is in top form. In the league, Die Roten Bullen won 5-0 against Hertha BSC last week, making the third position more firmly in the hands of the club from Saxony. And on Tuesday, Leipzig played in the quarterfinals of the cup. FC Augsburg was the opponent. RBL was disappointed when Augsburg scored the tying run in the last minute of the official minute. An extension was therefore required, and this time it was Leipzig that scored in the final minute. In the final minute of the extension, Marcel Halstenberg scored from the penalty spot (1-2, na).
Coach Ralf Rangnick’s team has had to use a lot of powers, with a large part of the basic team. On the other hand, the victory in Augsburg can also give morals for Saturday’s league match. Emil Forsberg, Tyler Adams and Lukas Klostermann did not play on Tuesday. It would be logical if they were kicking off again on Saturday. The injury list at RBL is not long, so Rangnick has a lot to choose from.
