Tip 1: Total Goals Under 3

Usually, high scoring teams provide low scoring matches and this could be one of them. The last four head to head matches played at the Red Bull Arena had the total goals under three in all four matches. Similarly, in the last five home matches for Leipzig in the Bundesliga had no matches with over three goals.
