Football – Germany – Bundesliga Betting Tips

German top flight action continues on Sunday afternoon with Leipzig taking on Schalke as the betting tips continue at the Red Bull Arena as the hosts look to break into the early European places.

As it is, Leipzig currently occupy 6th place and the Europa League qualifier spot, but they’ll be keen to push themselves further on the back of seven matches without defeat which includes wins over Hannover, Stuttgart, Hoffenheim and Nurnberg – the latter being a 6-0 thrashing of the visitors.

Leipzig also possess a solid home record which stands at  3-1-0  12/3 and as well as winning their last three on the trot on home turf, they’ve been scoring goals for fun. The hosts are the third highest goalscorers at home in the division, and with the forward trio of Poulsen, Werner and Augustin, the home side look a strong unit.

Schalke 04 come into this clash on the back of a disappointing 2-0 loss at home to Werder Bremen as they look to halt an in-form Leipzig side in their own backyard. Prior to the Werder Bremen defeat, Schalke had previously recorded back-to-back wins against Mainz and Fortuna Dusseldorf.

Schalke’s early away record stands at 1-0-3  4/5 which includes defeats at Wolfsburg, Borussia Moenchengladbach and Freiburg already this season, so a trip to Leipzig could be another tough test for the away side.

With just one clean sheet from their last seven away matches though, and a 3-1 loss the last time they visited Leipzig, my betting tips suggest this should be another home win here for the hosts.
