Live in-play betting – 

Hamburg look to have gotten over the disappointments of the 2016/2017 season where they struggled to retain their top flight status as they now have two wins from their opening two games and they will be looking to add RB Leipzig to the list of teams they have conquered this season.

However, they have secured those two wins over Augsburg and FC Cologne by sacrificing possession and even shots on target and this may mean they have developed themselves into a side that can get all three points even when they play badly.

They scored 3 of the 4 shots they had against Cologne who had 8 shots and everyone’s fingers are crossed to see how long they can maintain this momentum.

RB Leipzig were the toast of the German league last season as they stormed their way to the second position in the league table – a remarkable achievement for a team that is competing in the top flight for the first time.

They started this season poorly with a 2-0 loss to Schalke 04 but followed that up with a dominant 4-1 win over Freiburg and they will look to build some early momentum this season just like they did last year with a win in this game.
