RB Leipzig vs. FC Schalke 04 03.10.2020

RB Leipzig were in the thick of the title race for the better part of last season and ended the season in the third position behind Bayern and Dortmund. They also had a deep run in the Champions League, going all the way to the semis. Despite losing their leading striker Timo Werner to Chelsea this summer, they have shown remarkable resilience to seemingly carry over the momentum from the end of the season with a win and a draw in their first couple of games. Schalke meantime had a terrible finish to last season and that seems to have carried over to this season as they lost both of their opening fixtures, which included an 8-0 drubbing by Bayern, to sit at the foot of the Bundesliga table. RB Leipzig have turned the Red Bull Arena into a fortress in recent league matches, with their only loss in the last 15 Bundesliga matches at the venue coming against Dortmund at the tail end of last season. We are backing them to dominate this game and win it at halftime and fulltime

Main tip: Halftime/Fulltime, Leipzig/Leipzig (go to tip details)
