Match Betting (1x2)

We’ve heard of a Leap Year although will it be a Leip Year in the German Bundesliga, with RB Leipzig chasing down what they hope will be their first domestic title triumph of the season.

Julian Nagelsmann’s team are in hot pursuit of Bayern Munich, sitting just a point behind the Bavarian team at the time of writing. They have won thirteen of their twenty-two matches in the Bundesliga and are strong favourites to win this clash.

Ladbrokes offer 4/5 about RB Leipzig winning this clash, although it should be borne in mind that they have regularly dropped points on the road this season, with a win rate of just six victories in eleven away matches thus far.

Schalke 04 sit sixth in the German Bundesliga and will still hope to qualify for the Champions League this season, while the team’s home form has been fairly solid and they have only experienced one defeat in their eleven games on home soil.

You can get 16/5 with betfair that Schalke deal a heavy blow to Leipzig’s title hopes, while the draw can’t easily be ruled out at 3/1 considering that nearly 50% of Schalke’s home games have ended all square this season.

However, Leipzig will be a popular accumulator selection and they will hope to quickly recover from their Champions League exertions away to Tottenham a few days earlier.

Asian Handicap

The Asian Handicap can be a great betting market if you have a strong opinion on how you see the game panning out. Leipzig have plenty of goals in the team and claimed a 3-0 victory over Werder Bremen in their previous Bundesliga clash.

If you think the favourites can win by another sizeable margin in this match, then you might consider backing Leipzig at odds of 16/11 with a -1 goal handicap and BetVictor offer those particular odds.

In order to win with a bet like this, then you would need the visitors to triumph by at least two goals although you would have the insurance of money back should it be a one-goal margin of victory.

However, the stats don’t lie and Schalke have avoided defeat in over 90% of their home matches this season. Therefore, you can back the home side with a +0.5 goal advantage at odds of 11/10 with 888sport.

With this bet, the home side would simply need to avoid defeat in order for the bet to win.

Both Teams to Score

William Hill have 8/13 about both sides finding the net, with Leipzig knowing that they need to get on a winning run in order to keep their title hopes alive. Under their manager, they tend to be an offensively-minded team anyway.

Similarly, the onus will be on Schalke to attack as the home team, although they have only scored a modest number of goals in front of their own supporters and betfair chalk up 13/10 about the “No” option on the Both Teams to Score market.
