Preview: Seventh welcomes fourth to the Red Bull Arena in what is quite possibly the standout fixture from Germany this coming weekend. RB Leipzig appear to be over the worst of their sluggish start to life under a new head coach and will be keen to continue their ascent up the Bundesliga when Bayer Leverkusen, whose own form has simultaneously dipped, visit Saxony on Sunday.

RB Leipzig – Green shots of recovery evident?

Last week’s 2-0 reverse in Hoffenheim brought up loss number four for the season. It took them until the 27th round of last season to accrue as many defeats as they have through 12 matchdays of the current campaign, with life so far under American Jesse Marsch now exactly going according to script. Meanwhile, their tally of 18 points is their lowest at this stage of any of their previous five spells in the Bundesliga.

Still, there has been signs that a recovery is underway in Saxony. Die Rotten Bullen were unbeaten in seven league outings (W4 D3) prior to the most recent round, have won each of their last four at Red Bull Arena by a combined score of 15-5 having netted at least twice in each of these wins, and warmed up for Sunday’s crucial meeting with a top-four rival by scoring five in Belgium against Club Brugge in midweek.

Key Stat: With 20 goals scored, at an average of 3.33 per game, through their first six Bundesliga home games, this has been the club’s most prolific ever start to a Bundesliga campaign in front of their own fans.


RB Leipzig Win & Both To Score



Bayer Leverkusen – Werkself struggling to rediscover early impetus?

Die Werkself put their foot to the pedal as they begun the 2021-22 Bundesliga season reeling off five wins through the opening seven rounds, averaging close to three goals across a blistering period for Gerard Seoane’s charges. Maintaining those ridiculously high standards was always likely to be difficult, and so it proved, with last Saturday’s nervy 1-0 home win over Bochum their first since early October (D2 L2).

The Bochum game did continue a worrying trend in front of goal, though, with that now just five scored in as many league outings. Leverkusen can, however, point to a record of netting in every away fixture thus far; they are also the only Bundesliga team unbeaten on the road (W3 D3). Although Thursday’s Europa League exertions could be a hindrance ahead of what was already a daunting fixture in Saxony.

Key Stat: Against no other Bundesliga team does Leverkusen retain such a lowly points-per-game figure (0.7) than it does against RB Leipzig, Die Werkself having never recorded a clean sheet across all ten previous Bundesliga head-to-heads (W1 D4 L5).

RB Leipzig Vs Bayer Leverkusen Betting Advice

Although their momentum, and seven game unbeaten league run, were checked last time out, RB Leipzig are still the team worth keeping on side for this fixture. It is one they invariably thrive in, having won five and lost just one of the previous ten between the sides in the Bundesliga. This includes three of five here in Saxony, with each of these seeing the home side register a clean sheet in the process.


RB Leipzig Vs Bayer Leverkusen – Key Facts:

  • Seventh in the table, RB Leipzig boast a formidable record against Bayer Leverkusen, currently fourth, winning five of their ten previous Bundesliga meetings (D4 L1).
  • There have been a minimum of three match goals in all six RB Leipzig Bundesliga home games in 2021-22. Jesse Marsch’s side won five, including the last four.
  • Bayer Leverkusen are the only Bundesliga team unbeaten away from home this term (W3 D3), Die Werkself scoring in all six outings so far and at least twice in four.


However, it is certainly worth reminding ourselves that this Leverkusen team remain the only Bundesliga team yet to incur a single away loss this term. Gerard Seoane’s men scored in all six road encounters so far, and on at least two occasions in four, so won’t go down without a fight. This only lends further weight to the idea this contest will be high scoring, with RB Leipzig averaging more than three a game on their own patch.
