Following a big win at Atalanta, RB Leipzig returns to Bundesliga action as they travel to the BayArena to take on Leverkusen.

The visitors booked a Europa League semi-final spot against Rangers following a 2:0 win in Italy on Thursday and now return to domestic action in fine fettle having won each of their last 7 away matches (all competitions) with an impressive 26 goals scored in the process.

Domestically, RB have lost just 1 of their last 12 league matches, that at champions Bayern with 9 wins and 2 draws achieved during an excellent run of form which has lifted the Red Bull-owned side into the top 4. 

Still, they face a tough test here against 3rd placed Leverkusen who enter this fixture 1 point above the away side having won 4 of their last 5 home league matches. 

Indeed, the hosts have performed well at home in recent months, scoring 2 goals or more in 7 of their last 8 home matches however they have managed just 1 clean sheet during that period.

Recent contests between these sides have typically been entertaining affairs with BTTS occurring in all previous 5 meetings at this venue however RB have had the better of it, winning 2 and drawing 3 of those matches. Indeed, Leverkusen have only won 2 of 11 previous meetings however they did win 3:1 when these sides met in Leipzig back in November.

Of course, RB have improved since that defeat and we expect them to maintain their positive away form however goals have to be the best bet here with BTTS looking a solid choice based on both recent form and the historical h2h record.

Final score 2:2
