PRE-MATCH ANALYSIS

The German Bundesliga came back already. Yesterday’s night Bayern Munich have crushed Bayer Leverkusen at BayArena. Tonight Leipzig and Schalke04 will enter on the field of Red Bull Arena to play the clue of the eighteen match day. Will the hosts win after horrible December?

After a stellar debut season in the Bundesliga last year, Leipzig have struggled this season so far. Be it due to their Champions League commitments or just the ‘second season syndrome’, Leipzig find themselves fifth in the table (28pts). That puts them just two points behind Schalke, while the teams from third to 11th are separated by just five points.

The Red Bulls began the second tournament with a defeat 2:0 in Gelsenkirchen. Then they won two consecutive games. The defending runners-up lost key battle against Bayern and Hoffenheim.

December was the hosts’ worst month. They earned just two points out of twelve possible. They ended the first round with the first home loss against Hertha.

One of the most exciting features of this Bundesliga season has been the resurgence of Schalke. The Royal Blues made a substantial breakthrough comparing to the previous years. The visitors find themselves in second place in the table thanks to their wonderful finish of 2017. Schalke are unbeaten in eleven matches with their last loss coming in Hoffenheim in September. This is Schalke’s longest unbeaten run in 11 years. This white line includes five wins and six draws.

The guests cannot rely on the defender Pablo Insua due to the ribs injury. Both coaches have some player who probably cannot play for this match.

Both sides have played the friendlies within the break. Leipzig have beaten Dukla, Schalke won against Genk.

Last and unique H2H at Red Bull Arena ended with a narrow 2:1 victory.

Leipzig have the fourth home record in the Bundesliga. Two out of three Schalke’s losses occurred at away.

All winning streaks should be interrupted. This is natural when one strong team beats other one at home. The Red Bulls have a sufficient potential and the roster of the high quality to struggle for the Champions’ League spots. The Miners have a negative experience at away. Especially against the mid-table clubs. We believe Leipzig will stand in the same row with Hannover and Hoffenheim. Today we bet on their win with a perfect coefficient of 2.12.
