Schalke vs RB Leipzig Match Preview
RB Leipzig bagged an all-important win at Tottenham (0-1) midway through the week and connected their second win in a row, travelling to Gelsenkirchen in hope they can build on their consistency and challenge Bayern Munich at the top of the Bundesliga table with all three points.
Red Bulls beat Werder Bremen (3-0) and held Bayern Munich to a goalless draw beforehand, keeping clean sheets and basing success on such performances. Julian Nagelsmann will now want more of the same and we expect a very tough challenge at Veltins Arena once again.
Schalke have seen a somewhat more disappointing streak in Bundesliga lately, held off by Hertha Berlin (0-0), Paderborn (1-1), and Mainz (0-0) since late January and only interrupting the streak with a thriller DFB Pokal win over Hertha (3-2). They will now have to deliver against the big guns with a tough schedule ahead, which makes this all the more important.
Miners have been very tough to beat at this ground, though, and last suffered a competitive loss here in August. David Wagner’s men earned 20 points in 11 Bundesliga games at this ground and keeping it up will be essential if they’re to build on a top 6 spot, with Freiburg and Hoffenheim breathing down their necks.
We don’t see them doing so here, though, and we’ll now rather stick with RB Leipzig to snatch all three points at 4/5 with William Hill. We’ve seen them in great shape lately and we feel they should have what it takes on Saturday as well.
We expect a more exciting game, though, and we don’t see the visitors keeping a clean sheet. With hope they’ll have to outgun the rivals to snatch the points, we’re now also backing Over 2.5 Goals FT at 4/6 with William Hill!
