Bayer Leverkusen vs RB Leipzig Prediction & Betting tips
Bayer Leverkusen and RB Leipzig will face each other in the BayArena on Saturday afternoon. This is a competition to look forward to, because there is enough quality on both sides to make it a worthwhile competition.
Bayer Leverkusen does not have a simple start to the new Bundesliga season. The confrontation with Leipzig awaits on Saturday, and the season for Die Werkself started last week with an away game against VfL Wolfsburg. Peter Bosz did not seem to want to be countered by the home team. Bayer did attack, but paid close attention to the remaining defense himself. As a result, there were remarkably few chances to be noted, in a game that ended in 0-0.
Anyway, a draw in an away match against a subtopper is of course not the end of the world for Bosz and his players. The Dutch trainer welcomed Leon Bailey back this week, who had weathered his corona quarantine well. However, a place in the base for the Jamaican does not seem a very realistic option. For the rest, only Paulinho is missing, so there are certainly options for Bosz.
RB Leipzig won the full booty at the start of this new season, although the Saxons also had an easier match than Leverkusen. The number three of last season had to compete against FSV Mainz 05. In all areas, Julian Nagelsmann’s team was better than M05. Many opportunities were created, three of which were exploited. Leipzig started the season with a convincing 3-1 win.
This week, Leipzig completed the transfer of Alexander Sörloth. The Norwegian striker was taken over from Crystal Palace, after convincing the RBL scouts on a rental basis at Trabzonspor last year. Indeed, the same Sörloth who made little impression at FC Groningen for a year and a half. Apparently the Norwegian striker has undergone major development. On Saturday he will already be in the selection, although a raid in Leverkusen seems the highest possible.
