RB Leipzig play host to Union Berlin in the Bundesliga on Wednesday as they look to get their Bundesliga campaign back on track after failing to win any of their last two games.
The visitors, meantime, are coming off a great run of six undefeated league games that has seen them steadily rise up the table and a win here will catapult them into the top four.
Read on to get our Leipzig v Union Berlin betting predictions.
A disappointing 3-1 loss at home to Borussia Dortmund and a 2-2 draw at Wolfsburg in their last two games has seen RB Leipzig losing ground on league leaders Bayern Munich in the race for the Bundesliga title.
They are tied with Leverkusen, who beat Dortmund yesterday, on 32 points, four points adrift of the Bavarians. A win will take them back to 2nd place and cut the deficit to just one point, albeit having played a game more.
Leipzig have only lost once at home so far this season. But they will need to be at their best against one of the form teams in the Bundesliga to bag all three points.
Union Berlin have exceeded all expectations this season. No one gave a chance to be in the thick of the race for Champions League qualification places halfway through the Bundesliga campaign, but here they are on only their second ever Bundesliga season. They had shown glimpses of their capabilities with a few giant-killing wins last season. Coach Urs Fischer built on that relatively successful first season and now they look like they are in it for the long haul.
They are in 5th position, a point behind Dortmund, after picking up 12 points from their last six unbeaten league games. Even more impressive is the fact that these six games include big guns like Bayern, Dortmund and Leverkusen, who they beat 1-0 in their last match.
They, therefore, come into this match full of confidence and could prove to be a handful for Leipzig.
Although Leipzig dominated both of their games last season, they are coming up against a very different outfit this time round. Leipzig have struggled against teams that set up like Union – sitting deep and hitting the opposition with opportunistic counter attacks. We anticipate a tight start to this game with neither side ceding too much ground. Union have kept Bayern, Dortmund and Leverkusen scoreless in the first half of their games. We feel this trend might maintain here and we are backing Under 1.5 goals @ 1.46 with Bet9ja for our first tip.
Leipzig is desperate to get back to winning ways and we can expect them to be on attack mode here from the get-go. Despite their recent setbacks, they have generally been very good at home, where they have only lost 2 of their last 22 Bundesliga home matches. They will apply as much pressure as they can to the visitors and this pressure is likely to yield them quite a few corners. We are going for RB Leipzig to get Over 5.5 corners @ 1.84 with Bet9ja betting app as our final tip.
