Schalke 04 - RB Leipzig betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 15:30 on 06/02/2021 played @ VELTINS-Arena

The game is heavily lopsided in the visitors’ favour – for instance, most bookies are offering 9.50 odds on a home win. The hosts are no doubt in a difficult situation and don’t have much hope of overcoming RB Leipzig.

Any Result bet in this match other than Away Win would be quite optimistic indeed. The Red Bulls seem to be on their way to a relatively easy victory, though we suppose a major slip-up is not out of the question. Don’t count on it, though.

In a surprising turn of events, Schalke 04 took the lead in the early stages of their previous Bundesliga match at Werder Bremen . The lead withered away into a 1:1 draw in the second half - which still counts as a moderate success considering the overwhelming odds they were up against.

Team from Leipzig went into their previous match against Bayer Leverkusen with a slight edge in form and home-field advantage, resulting in a comfortable and somewhat predictable 1:0 home win.

A high concessions rate is not a good look to have, and Schalke have been on a downward spiral when it comes to their defensive performance. With 5 goals conceded over their past 3 games, there’s definite room for improvement.

Team from Leipzig tend to play rather passively even at home. For instance, they are heading into the Saturday game after two home games that featured fewer than 2 goals on both sides.

Schalke 04 are in 18th in the league table. It’s still too early to be overly pessimistic, though. They’ll have plenty of chances to improve going forward, though the clash with The Red Bulls will be an uphill battle.

The Red Bulls are among the best-placed teams so far with a 2nd spot in the standings. With most of the season still ahead of us, though, there will be plenty of room for changes in the table. They still have a chance to go for the title, but losing their current position is a possibility as well.

We already have a clash between these teams to use as a reference point. Earlier in the season, RB Leipzig walked to a comfortable victory. It seems that the 1.38 odds make a lot of sense, considering the information at hand.

Both rosters have been impacted by an unfortunate string of injuries, leaving them with limited options. The favoured visitors will be short Benjamin Henrichs, Emil Forsberg, Konrad Laimer, Fabrice Hartmann, while Salif Sané, Suat Serdar, Can Bozdogan, Benito Raman, Steven Skrzybski, Gonçalo Paciência, Frederik Rønnow, Kilian Ludewig will not play for the home team.

Sadly, we can’t get good value here and still stay cautious. An HT/FT bet for Draw/Away is the best option due to the visitor’s tendency to stumble in the first half.
