RB Leipzig vs Bayer Leverkusen Preview

RB Leipzig vs Bayer Leverkusen

Competition – German Bundesliga

Stadium – Red Bull Arena Leipzig

Date: 9th April 2018

Kick-off time – 19:30 GMT

RB Leipzig head into this game in confident mood after their 1-0 win over Olympique Marseille in the Europa League on Thursday.

That win meant they have been unbeaten in their past 7 games, winning 4 of them.

Although they will have their eyes on the return leg of their Europa League match, it is unlikely that they will rest their star men for this game as a victory here would go a long way in helping their quest for Champions League football next season.

RB Leipzig also have just 3 points more than their visitors.

Bayer Leverkusen have failed to score in consecutive Bundesliga games this season after their 0-0 draw against Augsburg last time out.

They will know that this is a game that they have to win if they are serious about finishing inside the top four at the end of this season.

Lucas Alario is still suspended for this game, so Kevin Volland who is without a goal for the last 9 games should be tasked with helping with the goals here again.

This game looks almost certain to be a home win because Leipzig tend to play at their very best whenever they host a side inside the top six.

They have won 3 and drawn 1 of their last 4 home games against the top six including coming from behind to beat Bayern Munich a number of weeks ago.
