Two historic clubs clashed last week as Real Madrid beat Celtic 3-0 to mark the beginning of their title retention. They face an unpredictable opponent next in the form of RB Leipzig at home on Wednesday. The Bundesliga visitors were beaten to their last breath by Shakhtar Donetsk as the Ukrainian side brushed aside their geographical & political problems to hand the Germans a thumping 4-1 defeat. Nevertheless, with a 3-0 win over Borussia Dortmund on the weekend, Leipzig might have just revived their morale back. Madrid will be absolute favourites in this one, but Leipzig have proven to be difficult contenders in the recent past (especially Manchester City in 2019), which makes this tie a very unique proposition.

Real vs RB Leipzig Betting Tips: Home / Over 2.5

Real Madrid have not only managed to go unbeaten in their last 9 games, they have also won their last eight in quick succession too. The only problem that Carlo Ancelotti's men are facing is the lack of clean sheets. 5 of the last 6 opponents have scored against them, requiring the Galacticos to outscore them for three points. A similar approach has been observed in RB Leipzig's gameplay. The newest Bundesliga club, in terms of the foundation year, has seen over 2.5 goals in 6 of their last 7 games due to the lack of defensive proficiency and focus on attacking aspects. Our prediction is thus going to be a straightforward ACCA of a Real Madrid win and Over 2.5 goals with a scoreline prediction of 2-1 in favour of the hosts.

Though Karim Benzema still boasts confidence all over the pitch, it is Vinicius who is leading the goalscoring and creating charts at Real Madrid. The Brazilian youngster has 5 goal contributions in La Liga this season, which puts him directly responsible for one-third of Madrid's successes right now. Benzema has taken a different route to help his side. The French international creates 2.5 chances per game for his teammates to capitalize upon. He is just ahead of Rodrygo (2.3) in that aspect. We might expect Eder Militao to come on in the second half, in either Rudiger or Alaba's place, as the centre-back is the best in his position when it comes to the average number of interceptions every game (1.70). Vinicius, Benzema and Miliato are thus our three players to watch out for.

RB Leipzig Team News

Leipzig are still riding on Christopher Nkunku's antics. The Frenchman, who burst into the European footballing scene last season, has already bagged 4 goal contributions since the season started. This is despite the arrival of Timo Werner back from Chelsea FC. Behind Nkunku, Dani Olmo plays the almost-perfect number 10 role. The Spaniard is far ahead of everyone when it comes to creating chances. Olmo makes an average of 2.6 key passes every game, which is 0.9 more than any other player on his team. The two centre-backs Abdou Diallo and Willi Orban have set the bar quiet high as they combine for 4 interceptions on average between them, which is nowhere close to being found when the other players' numbers are concerned. Nkunku, Olmo, Diallo and Orban will be our players to keep an eye on, in this game.
