RB Leipzig vs. Schalke 04

RB Leipzig and Schalke 04 lock horns in Bundesliga Matchday 3 late kickoff on Saturday.

RB LEIPZIG

Despite losing the services of their top striker from the last few years in Timo Werner, RB Leipzig have continued dumbfounding critics by putting up spectacular performances dating back to the end of last season when they made a deep run in the Champions League where they were eventually eliminated in the semi-finals.

They kicked off this Bundesliga campaign with a terrific 3-1 home win over Mainz before following that up with a calm and composed performance at the BayArena in Leverkusen in a match that ended 1-1.

Cognizant of the fact that Werner’s overall output cannot be matched by a single player, coach Julian Nagelsmann has instead gone for strength in numbers and his forwards Emil Forsberg, Dani Olmo, Marcel Sabitzer and Yussuf Poulsen have all answered the bell when called upon and they are jointly sharing the goal scoring burden to great effect. He will, however, be without his first-choice centre forward Yussuf Poulsen for this match after the striker picked up a knock at the weekend.

SCHALKE 04

Schalke ended the 2019/20 season in disarray and had it not been for the insurance and cushion they had from good performances earlier on in the season, they would have certainly been sucked into the relegation dog fight and possibly gone down. As it was, they ended up finishing 12th on the log, which was obviously disappointing for their fans considering they were in 5th place below they began sliding down that slippery slope.

Their hopes for a reversal of their fortunes for this season were quickly dashed after conceding 11 goals in their two matches. This was the final straw that led to the sacking of manager David Wagner and reports are suggesting Manuel Baum has been appointed in the interim as they look for Wagner’s successor.

Although turning things around is an uphill task, there is no doubt that new coach Manuel Baum will do all he can to get the club out of the gutter as soon as is practically possible.

RB LEIPZIG V SCHALKE BETTING TIPS

Schalke are a club in shambles at the moment and despite parting ways with the former coach, the Gelsenkirchen club are unlikely to turn the tide immediately with this tough trip to the Red Bull Arena. Their biggest issue has obviously been their leaking defence and defender Kabak’s red card against Werder only compounds this issue. It is reasonable to expect the new coach to put a lot more emphasis on that end of the pitch as the first point of action and we can expect a better defensive approach to the game from Schalke here. We are therefore tempted to go for Under 3.5 goals @ 1.85 with 1xBet app as our first betting tip for this game.

All said and done, RB Leipzig are still overwhelming favourites to get the win here. They’ve turned the Red Bull Arena into a fortress in recent seasons losing just once in their last 15 games. For our final tip, we are backing them to Win to Nil @ 2.24 with 1xBet betting app.
