RB Leipzig Prediction – Can Leipzig back up Benfica win?

The German hosts got their Champions League group campaign off to a great start with a 2-1 win away from home at Benfica and they followed that up with a second win on the trot on the road with a 3-0 win at Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga.

However, a 3-1 loss at home to Schalke on the weekend will serve as a wake-up call for Julian Nagelsmann’s side as they prepare for this upcoming Group G clash with Lyon, with the hosts looking to bounce back wiht a win this evening which would place Leipzig in a strong position early on in the group stages.

This is Leipzig’s only second campaign in the Champions League after they first showed up in 2017, recording wins over Porto, Monaco and Benfica, but registering a win, draw and a loss on home turf at their Red Bull Arena.

In striker, Timo Werner (5 goals this season), RB Leipzig possess one of the most consistent hit-men up front as the forward has scored a total of 50 goals across 3 full season s with the German hosts.

Lyon Prediction – Can Lyon break drought?

The French Ligue 1 outfit make their way over Leipzig for this upcoming Matchday 2 clash on the back of a slightly worrying 7-match sequence without a win in all competitions, which includes defeats to Montpellier, PSG and Nantes in Ligue 1, as well as being held to a 1-1 draw at home by Russian side, Zenit, on Matchday 1.

Overall results away from home have also been under-par by Lyon’s standards as the visitors have managed just 1 away win out of their last 6 matches on their travels which was collected at struggling Monaco in Ligue 1.

Results on the road in the Champions League have also left a lot to be desired for Sylvinho’s side as they’ve registered just 3 wins out of their last 11 matches which were achieved at Valencia, Dinamo Zagreb and Manchester City, but this will be their first ever meeting with RB Leipzig.

With just 3 clean sheets out of their last 17 away matches in all competitions though, Lyon may face a difficult evening in Leipzig on Wednesday night as they look to contain the likes of Werner & co.


Key-Facts – RB Leipzig v Lyon

  • Lille have lost 4 of their last 5 matches at home in the Champions League
  • Lyon have registered just 3 away wins out of their last 11 matches in the CL
  • Lyon have kept just 3 clean sheets out of their last 17 away matches in all competitions


Betting Tips Verdict

RB Leipzig look to have the edge here over their French opponents who have found it hard to keep clean sheets on their travels.R
