Hamburger is an historical club of the Bundesliga, a club that has a good fan base…
And that was fighting for the European spots a few years ago, having played both in the Champions League and in the Europa League recently.
The last 3 seasons have been pretty negative for them and they barely escaped relegation.
This season, they’re looking for more stability and to have a more peaceful campaign, without many troubles.
They have started the season really well, winning 1-0 at home against Augsburg and 3-1 away at Koln.
It is also worth mentioning that defender Mavraj was sent off, so he will miss this match against Leipzig.
Those were 2 important wins for Hamburger that leave their fans hungry for more and helped them forget last seasons’ bad starts.
RB Leipzig were last season’s sensation in the Bundesliga, since they had just been promoted and they finished the season in 2nd place of this very competitive league.
Leipzig has some heavy investors. They have a team with a good budget and they also have a good team.
They don’t have big stars, but their collective is really strong and they haven’t lost many players from last year.
They signed Bruma, who has already scored 1 goal for Leipzig, and Kampl, who was also a strong addition. They also have Keita and Wener who are quality players too.
Leipzig started off with the wrong foot in this Bundesliga, losing 2-0 away against Schalke, but then they won 4-1 at home against Freiburg.
Hamburger vs RB Leipzig – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Hamburger will have a tough test here on this reception to Leipzig, so much that the visitors are even favoured to win at Hamburg.
I expect a hard match for the visitors here, because Hamburger has started this new season well, and they usually have a lot of support playing at home.
After some tough seasons, it would mean the world for them to start off with 3 wins in 3 matches on the Bundesliga.
I’m not going on a Hamburger win, because it will not be easy, at all.
But I expect them to at least get a point, because I’m convinced they won’t lost this match to Leipzig who will play in the Champions League next week,
for the first time in the history of the club. I’m unsure whether that will influence the outcome of this match or not.
