FC Schalke 04 vs. RB Leipzig Betting Tips
Schalke will host in-form Leipzig for their Matchday 30 clash on Sunday, just days after their all-important Europa League return clash against Ajax at this ground where they look for a comeback after losing 2-0 in Amsterdam. They’ve been in a great home form recently and based their success on a fine streak there, but we’ll back them to maintain their unbeaten run with just a draw, which comes at 12/5 with BetVictor
Leipzig come into the match in better shape and with confidence taken from their four-match winning streak, we do feel they’ll now be able to move towards consistency on the road as well. They’ve outclassed Freiburg (4-0) in their last outing and should now have what it takes to snatch at least a point at VELTINS-Arena.
Die Konigsblauen have indeed suffered three losses in their last four games but their home form has remained intact, with a seven-match unbeaten streak behind them. While they do come into the match on the back of a disappointing 2-1 loss at Darmstadt, they’re still just four points behind the top 6 and a Europa League spot so we expect to see them as motivated as ever.
Their defensive line has been working much better at home and we’ve seen them concede just five goals in seven games, but holding off die Bullen will be a challenge of its own. The visitors have
netted 12 goals in their last four outings, and going for a Yes on Both teams to score here looks the best approach to the fixture, backed at 4/6 with William Hill
