RB Leipzig vs Bayer Leverkusen Prediction & Betting tips
The designers of the game plan did everything right this weekend. The showdown will follow on Sunday when RB Leipzig and Bayer Leverkusen meet two teams dedicated to offensive football. Therefore, there could be a spectacle in this top game if the tactical constraints do not tend towards lawn chess.
Julian Nagelsmann and Peter Bosz are two coaches who are among the best that the Bundesliga has to offer. Only Hansi Flick and Marco Rose have a better point average per game, whereby these two were responsible for significantly fewer games in the upper house than the coaches from Leipzig and Leverkusen.
In the Bundesliga table, Leipzig is the first pursuer, one point behind the leader Bayern Munich. Leverkusen is currently fifth with six points behind Bayern. With a win on Sunday, Bayer 04 could finally register for the title race. There is already a clear gap of seven points behind Leverkusen in the classification.
Sunday is obviously the Bulls’ favorite day. On the first day of last season there was a 1-4 loss at Borussia Dortmund on a Sunday. Since then, Leipzig has not lost in eleven games at the end of the week. That doesn’t sound like a prediction of an away win between RB Leipzig and Leverkusen would be the first option.
In addition, Julian Nagelsmann’s team is doing well in top games this season. RB has not lost against the other teams from the top 5, in addition to Leverkusen, Dortmund, Bavaria and Gladbach. Even this is hardly a hint to give a tip on the guests in the match between RB Leipzig and Leverkusen.
Throughout the season, the Saxons were always in front of the Werkself in the table. With a threesome, the team of Peters Bosz could not change anything, but you could really put RB on the mark. The kick-off for the 24th matchday in the Bundesliga between RB Leipzig and Bayer Leverkusen in the Red Bull Arena will take place on 03/01/2020 at 14:30 p.m.
Every team picks up a small phase of weakness once in a season. The bulls seem to have overcome them now and are full of juice again. One failed at Eintracht Frankfurt in the DFB Cup, but if we like, there are two more titles in the Bundesliga and the Champions League.
Nothing can be ruled out in the current constitution. RB Leipzig have won six of their last seven home games. That is why the bulls are thrown out as favorites in the betting providers’ odds comparison. In each of these seven games in the Red Bull Arena, RasenBallsport always scored at least twice, six times even at least three times.
Julian Nagelsmann’s team has been a clean sheet for four games and recently won three competitive games in a row, including 1-0 in the premier class in Tottenham. We will report on the return leg in good time as part of our Champions League tips. Overall, the statistics indicate that the odds of a home win between RB Leipzig and Leverkusen are primarily interesting.
This assumption is fueled by the great victory at Schalke 04 last week. The miners were shot 5: 0 from their own stadium. Marcel Sabitzer, Timo Werner, Marcel Halstenberg, Angelino and Emil Forsberg were the goalscorers. Two goals were scored again in the final quarter of an hour.
The Leipzig team have already scored 18 goals in the last 15 minutes. If you are flirting with live bets on late hits by the bulls, you can keep up to date with the live score of the betting base. In the current constitution, championship is not a utopia.
Konrad Laimer will have to serve a yellow card suspension on Sunday. For that, Amadou Haidara is likely to slip into the team. It is possible that Julian Nagelsmann will switch to a 4-3-3 system. Due to injury, the coach will definitely have to do without Tyler Adams, Kevin Kampl, Ibrahima Konate and Willi Orban.
If you only deal with Leipzig, you have to assume a home win based on the statistics. With Bayer Leverkusen, however, the Red Bull Aren will be a very strong opponent. The Werkself have played the best second half of the club’s history so far. Only Bayern Munich has scored one point more than Bayer 04 since the winter break.
In addition, Peter Bosz’s team has moved into the round of 16 of the Europa League and is in the quarter-finals of the cup. We will take a look at how Leverkusen is doing against Union Berlin there on Wednesday as part of our DFB Cup tips. Bayer 04 is currently playing an almost perfect season in which a lot is still possible.
The Leverkusen-based have six wins in a row. There have been only one defeat and eight wins in the last nine competitive matches. In addition, Leverkusen is the third best away team in the league after Bayern and Leipzig. So it is not entirely absurd to make a prediction of an away win in the match between RB Leipzig and Leverkusen.
Peter Bosz’s team made a very strong appearance in the Europa League on Thursday. After a 2-1 win in the first leg, it could have been a little tight again in Porto. Bayer left no doubt, however, and was up 3-0 after an hour through the goals of Lucas Alario, Kerim Demirbay and Kai Havertz. The Portuguese goal of honor was only for statistics.
Accordingly, it does not matter to Peter Bosz who will be drawn as opponents in the Europa League. It also doesn’t matter to him that RB Leipzig is the next opponent in the Bundesliga. It is only important for the coach what his team does.
In Leipzig, Leverkusen still has to do without Kevin Volland, who has a torn syndrome. Otherwise there is a question mark behind Charles Aranguiz, who suffers from a flu-like infection. Peter Bosz will probably rotate a little after the game on Thursday in Porto.
