RB Leipzig vs Schalke Match Preview
RB Leipzig have been in fine form early in the new campaign and they host Schalke for their Matchday 6 clash on Saturday as Bundesliga pace-setters, boasting a tally of 13 points to their name after five outings as well as Champions League success seen along the way.
Die Bullen have beaten both Benfica (1-2) and Werder Bremen (0-3) last week, as Timo Werner leads an in-form attacking line and they keep bagging points despite only keeping their only second clean sheet this term in Bremen. They will now hope for more of the same and we expect them in a great mood at Red Bull Arena.
Schalke caught up with the top of the table with a fine streak of their own lately, where they bagged nine points in their last three outings. They’ve beaten Hertha (3-0), Paderborn (1-5), and Mainz (2-1) since late August, as David Wagner’s men bounced from a comfortable loss to Bayern Munich (0-3) and now surely pose a serious threat.
Die Konigsblauen netted a high total of ten goals along the way and now sit just three points behind the rivals, which promises a strong challenge on Saturday as well with a top 4 spot under their noses. However, causing an upset in Leipzig will be much more of a task and we don’t see them snatching the points this time around.
We will thus go for the home side to turn an exciting game their way once again, sticking our necks out for Leipzig to win and a Yes on Both teams to score at 9/5 with in hope we’ll see them outgun the tough rivals to all-important points.
With that in mind, we’re obviously making a case for a high-scoring occasion at Red Bull Arena and we’ll now also back Over 2.5 Goals FT at 8/15 with William Hill, which has been rated buying money for old rope by many in the know already.
