Schalke – RB Leipzig Prediction and Preview

  • After Schalke 04 set an unwanted Bundesliga record of 36 away games without a win by losing 3-0 to Eintracht Frankfurt, they’ll likely welcome playing at home for the first time since the World Cup. They need all the assistance they can get after winning just one of their last ten Bundesliga games across all venues (L9), leaving them five points adrift at the bottom.
  • Both of their Bundesliga wins this term were earned at home against sides in the bottom half of the standings, so the visit of fifth-placed RB Leipzig will present a difficult challenge, especially after losing the last three H2Hs here without scoring. Further adding to Schalke’s woes is a significant list of illnesses and injuries, although that did not prevent them creating several good chances in the loss to Frankfurt.
  • That should ensure that Leipzig, who resumed their league campaign by claiming a hard-earned point at home to league leaders Bayern Munich (D 1-1), won’t be taking the Bundesliga’s least prolific goalscorers (13) lightly. Leipzig’s fightback against Bayern was their 14th consecutive competitive game without defeat (W11, D3); notably, in each of their last three league games in which they conceded the opener, they eventually drew.
  • The Red Bulls are eyeing a title charge as part of a congested top six and have proven themselves to be more dangerous when making the running, illustrated by their undefeated Bundesliga record when opening the scoring (W8, D2). Leipzig’s credentials are further boosted by their four-match unbeaten run in Bundesliga away games (W2, D2), all of which saw both sides score on the day, suggesting this first ever H2H to take place on a Tuesday could be an entertaining affair.
  • Players to watch: If Schalke are to start well, then Simon Terodde – their leading scorer this term with three Bundesliga goals – could be key, as all three of his goals came before the 35th minute. Leipzig’s André Silva could potentially beat him to the punch, after three goals in the 28th or 29th minute in his last three games against Schalke!
  • Hot stat: Leipzig have won all seven league games in which they led at half-time this term.
