RB Leipzig Form & Team News

They have ten wins, five draws, and two losses in the league. In the 18 matches played, Leipzig has scored 31 and conceded 17 goals. RB Leipzig has an impeccable record in the Red Bull Arena as they won seven, drawn one, and lost only one from their nine home matches.

RB Leipzig have five players out due to injury for their fixture against Leverkusen. Yousuf Poulsen is the most notable absentee as he has been sidelined due to a tear in the abductor muscle. Fabrice Hartmann, Konrad Laimer, Benjamin Henrichs, and Dominik Szoboszlai are the other Leipzig players that have been ruled out of this game. The Swedish playmaker Emil Forsberg has been the most impactful player for Leipzig this season as he has bagged four goals and three assists. The Man City loanee Angelino is not far behind him as he has managed to impress in his time in Bundesliga with four goals and two assists.

Leverkusen Form and Team News

Leverkusen are currently in the third position in Bundesliga after 18 matches with 32 points and have a chance to leapfrog Leipzig with a win. Out of the 18 matches played, they have won nine, drawn five, and lost three times in the league. They have scored 31 goals and conceded 17 goals in the league this season. Leverkusen’s away record is spectacular as they have the second-best away record in the league. They have won five, drawn two, and lost two of their nine games on the road.

Leverkusen has been hampered by injuries and suspensions with eight players unavailable for this match. Leverkusen’s talented forward Patrick Schick is carrying a knock and won’t be available in this match. Paulinho, Santiago Arias, Exequiel Palacios, Sven Bender, Mitchell Weiser, Julian Baumgartlinger, and Jonathan Tah are the other absentees. Lucas Alario is most likely to replace Schick in his absence. The Argentine wouldn’t have too many problems filling the shoes of Schick as he is the leading goalscorer for Leverkusen this season with ten goals. Leverkusen will look to Nadiem Amiri to unlock Leipzig’s defense as he is leading the assist charts with six assists.

Our Tipster’s Angle

Two of the best sides in Germany are locking horns this weekend. The Red Bull Arena has been a fortress for Leipzig this season and thus it would feel that the Leipzig side would marginally hold the edge over their opponents.

Tip 1: RB Leipzig To Win

RB Leipzig might have had a few hiccups in the recent few weeks but they would fancy their chances at home against a Leverkusen side who are missing key players in this match. RB Leipzig is in a good vein of form at Red Bull Arena as of this moment as they have won four, drawn one, and lost only one of their last six home matches in Bundesliga. RB Leipzig has also had the better of Leverkusen in previous head-to-head encounters as they have won three and drawn three of their previous six games between the two sides. So it is most likely that RB Leipzig comes out on top at 1.84 odds available on Casumo sportsbook. 

Tip 2: Total Goals Under 3

This match does not look like a high-scoring counter especially with both teams missing key players in front of the goal. RB Leipzig has had over three goals scored thrice in their last eight matches in the league. Leverkusen on the other hand has had only two matches that have over three goals in their last eight Bundesliga games. Their head-to-head encounters reflect the same as only one out of five games has resulted in over three goals between the two sides. Hence it looks most likely there won’t be more than three goals in the match at 1.58 odds available on Casumo sportsbook.


It promises to be a tantalizing matchup between two very good sides. The team that comes out on top will definitely feel that they would establish themselves as the contenders against Bayern for the league. Summarizing a couple of bets mentioned above.

  1. RB Leipzig To Win @ 1.84
  2. Total Goals Under 3 @ 1.58
