RB Leipzig vs Schalke Prediction & Betting tips
A striking game on this Saturday is the one held by Leipzig and Schalke for a new date in the Bundesliga.
RB Leipzig :
In my opinion, there is no clear favorite on this occasion, since the two teams are even and intense in offensive matters. However, if we consider that they also fail in the brand, we advise you to play a few euros to the bet “plus 1.5 goals”. Remember that they have the necessary weapons to recover from an initial disadvantage thanks to the spaces they usually leave.
Take into account that Leipzig lost 2-3 to Hertha Berlin before the Christmas break, staying with 28 points in total. The team has added 4 games without winning, product of 2 draws and 2 losses. These days, he is in the fifth position of the tournament, having to win to get back into Champions League places.
On the other hand do not forget that the home team has added acceptable results in its stadium, after winning 5 games, match another 2 and lose the remaining one (17 goals in favor and 10 against). It comes to beat Hannover 2-1, to beat Werder Bremen 2-0, to match 2-2 with Mainz and to fall 2-3 against the Berliners as mentioned above.
Continuing with the analysis you should know that Schalke equaled 2-2 against Eintracht Frankfurt in his last presentation before the winter break. He currently has 30 units in the table and is in second place in the German championship. Of course, the team has had some problems to win by registering 1 win and 4 draws in their last 5 presentations.
And finally we tell you that the visit has registered various markers playing in this condition, after winning 3 games, match another 3 and lose the remaining 2 that disputed (12 goals and 11 received in their goal). It comes to equal 4-4 against Borussia Dortmund, to draw 1-1 against Borussia Monchengladbach and to equal 2-2 against Eintracht Frankfurt.
Against this scenario I play for the bet “over 1.5 goals” due to the following reasons: First, because the two teams are interesting in attack and full of hierarchy thanks to the good players they have in attack. That yes, usually have some defensive inattention that cost them goals and in many cases win games. Considering this, it is logical that they can recover from a hypothetical initial disadvantage. Second because Leipzig is an intense and slightly dapper ensemble when acting at home. However, it is showing problems in the mark as it was in the 2-3 defeat against Hertha Berlin before the Christmas break. And third because Schalke has not lost in his last 5 starts, engineering them to score in each of them. Of course, the team has matched 3 consecutively, also receiving a bit at least. Given this reality, we believe that the game can end 1-1 or 2-2 after the final whistle, not ruling out a 2-0 victory or 2-1 for either side.
