RB Leipzig are back at the Red Bull Arena for a game against Schalke. This will be the third consecutive home match for RB Leipzig in all competitions and Ralf Rangnick has seen his team remain in the top five places despite dropping points during the weekend. Schalke have fallen back into the bottom three places after a disappointing result during the weekend. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.

Betting Tips for the game

RB Leipzig picked up a 2-0 victory over Celtic in the Europa League group stages. This victory quickly helped overcome a goalless draw with Augsburg at the WWK Arena.

Schalke are winless and goalless in the last two matches after a 0-0 draw with Galatasaray in the Europa League. Schalke last scored against relegation-threatened Fortuna Dusseldorf before the international break.

The recent fixture between RB Leipzig and Schalke also took place at the Red Bull Arena with the home team getting a 3-1 success. Our betting tips and predictions expect a victory for the home team.

Match odds

Schalke are given a price of 4.75 to win the match. Yet, we would not take this choice considering that Domenico Tedesco’s men are once again back on a struggling path. Schalke went on a winning sequence of three games before the international break, but they were never comfortable even during those wins. The low confidence built up by the poor start continues to plague the team, while RB Leipzig have been relatively comfortable in recent weeks. RB Leipzig have been able to win both home games against Schalke and our preview would pick more of the same.

RB Leipzig vs Schalke draw odds: 3.60

Schalke win odds: 4.75

Correct Score odds

RB Leipzig have not been in scintillating goalscoring form but they have been able to do the job in recent matches. Schalke have been quite the opposite with the club struggling to score goals. Even though RB Leipzig have been able to profit only from Yussuf Poulsen going forward, they have been able to come up with an average of two goals per game. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

All the meetings between these two teams at the Veltins Arena have produced less than 2.5 goals while it is the opposite when it comes to meetings at the Red Bull Arena. Our total goals prediction expects this trend to continue with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds

Timo Werner has been able to score in all but one of his four appearances against Schalke since making the switch to RB Leipzig in the 2016-17 campaign. Prior to the move, Werner went five games without a goal against Schalke. Even though his current form has been patchy, our first goalscorer prediction would back Timo Werner.
