RB Leipzig vs Bayer Leverkusen: Match Preview and Prediction

RB Leipzig vs Bayer Leverkusen: So far this season, Bayer Leverkusen has won 14 and drawn 3 of its 17 league games. Last weekend, the cumulative score of these two squads was far over 5.00 xG. In the past two Bundesliga matches, RB Leipzig only managed to pick up one point.

On Saturday night at Red Bull Arena, RB Leipzig will play host to Bayer Leverkusen in one of the more intriguing matches of Matchday No 18. Despite having plenty of opportunities against their respective opponents in the last round, both teams will approach this tie with distinct mindsets.

Seven days ago, RB Leipzig lost their first home game of the season, 0-1 against Eintracht Frankfurt. Frankfurt took the lead early on thanks to a goal from Knauff, and they were able to maintain it even though they let RB Leipzig score more than three goals in the process.

With only one point from the last two league rounds, RB Leipzig is in a difficult position overall. They are only three points ahead of Borussia Dortmund, who defeated Darmstadt in their opening match of the season, despite being fourth in the Bundesliga rankings.

Last Saturday, away at Augsburg, Bayer Leverkusen also produced a ton of scoring opportunities in the closing third. In contrast to Leipzig, Die Werkself managed to secure a point through the efforts of midfielder Ezequiel Palacios, who scored in the third minute of stoppage time.

Leverkusen, who lead Bayern Munich by four points in the standings, won without a hint for the third time in a row. With the game in hand, the Bavarians are giving Xabi Alonso’s troops little margin for error.

When these two teams faced up in reverse, it was a true goal fest, with Bayer Leverkusen winning 3-2 at BayArena in mid-August of last year. However, Leverkusen has a poor record against RB Leipzig at Red Bull Arena, having only won two of the previous seven meetings, drawing one, and losing four.

In the four prior head-to-head meetings between these sides, just one resulted in goals on both ends. In the most recent Bundesliga round, the total score of these two teams was far over 5.00 xG. They typically play offensive football, and their last match saw five goals scored.
