Schalke vs Leipzig Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
This Saturday late afternoon brings us match between Schalke and RB Leipzig. We all have been waiting for opportunity like this to place our bets and earn some serious money. These teams played only once in Gelsenkirchen and team from Leipzig held for draw 1:1.
Schalke made strategically mistake when they replaced Andre Breitenreiter with Markus Weinzierl. Herr Breitenreiter was sacked because he finished season in fifth place and new manager reached only tenth. First seven rounds were disastrous because Schalke was in sixteenth place. After that something changed and they started winning at home. In away matches they were losing often and when we put that all together then we see why they reached only middle of the table. However, Domenico Tedesco is newest manager and Schalke plays fantastically. In seven friendlies they recorded five victories and two draws. Schalke spent 47.5 M € to bring Nabil Bentaleb, Yevhen Konoplyanka and Amine Harit. Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Sead Kolasinac left the club on free transfer. Schalke looks good and they are ready to meet team from Leipzig.
RB Leipzig, the most hated club in Germany and the most pleasant surprise at the same time will try for the second time their run for championship title. Controversial club, very soon occupied second place in the table and at one point they were on the top. Team without big names was widely recognized for its attacking football and that approach brought results. RB Leipzig secured services of young center forward Jean-Kevin Augustin from PSG for 13 M €. Left wing Bruma arrived from Galatasary for 12.5 M €. Most of new players are from RB Leipzig U 19. They will certainly feel absence of Rani Khedira and Davie Selke but there are enough players for their replacement. Prep matches went well and team from Leipzig is ready to bull rush everybody on their way to the top.
