Leipzig vs Schalke – Bundesliga : On the restart of the Bundesliga after the winter break, in one of this Saturday’s matches, in Germany.
Counting towards the Bundesliga’s 18th round, the local side RB Leipzig and the visiting side Schalke 04 will face off in Leipzig, at the RedBull Arena,
on a match between two teams that have already met once this season, with that encounter finishing with a 2-0 win at home for the team from Gelsenkirchen, on the 1st round of the competition.
The home side is making a campaign within their expectations so far, being on the European qualification zone, and having the same points as the team who are on the Champions League’s qualification zone.
The team is already out of two of the competitions they intended to play this season, namely the DFB Pokal and the Champions League, having been moved to the Europa League,
which should result on an additional physical effort, that might compromise their performances in the Bundesliga.
The team is coming off a negative streak of results, being winless for 4 matches and having conceded 10 goals in that period.
As for the visitors, they come into this match making one of the best campaigns of their recent history, sitting in 2nd place of the German Bundesliga and also still being on the DFB Pokal.
This is a very positive campaign for the team, like they haven’t made in a long time.
The team is also on a good streak of results, not having lost a single match since September 23rd.
Leipzig vs Schalke – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Due to the fact that Leipzig is a highly inconsistent team on the defensive point of view, since they play with a very offensive style, as their records show,
and with a Schalke 04 in better form when compared to previous years, I believe this will be an intense and hard-fought battle, with some goals to delight the fans.
