Schalke 04 vs RB Leipzig Prediction and Betting Preview, 22 Feb 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 0-5
Schalke 04 vs RB Leipzig PredictionRB Leipzig welcome Die Knappen to the Red Bull Arena in a clash which promises to be exciting. RB Leipzig trail leaders Bayern Munich by one point as the Bundesliga draws to a climax. This is the most competitive the Bundesliga title race has been for some years now.
Match status: 2019-20 Bundesliga - Matchweek 23
Venue: Veltins Arena (Gelsenkirchen)
This turn of events was set in place by the resurgence of RB Leipzig few years ago, spearheaded by a team of promising youngsters. They come up against Schalke 04 who currently occupy 6th position in the Bundesliga.

Schalke are currently 8 points off the Champions League places and a win or draw against RB Leipzig would be a welcome result. 
The visiting contingent come into the game on the back of a great performance and victory over Tottenham in the UEFA Champions League. They are in good form with two wins, a loss, two draws - including one against Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich in their last five games.

The home side, however, are in moderate form with a win, three draws and a loss – which also came against Serie A’s league leaders. The game seems to be Leipzig’s to lose. They have the superior talent and motivation on their side. This should be an easy win for them.

Schalke 04 vs RB Leipzig Team News

Schalke and Mainz couldn’t be separated last Sunday evening, with Weston McKennie missing a golden chance as the time was running out for the uninspiring Royal Blues thus their clash against relegation-threatened hosts ended in a goalless draw.

It was third draw in a row for David Wagner’s injury-ravaged side (all of them against relegation contenders) and their fourth consecutive Bundesliga game without a win.

Yet, the Miners somehow remained at sixth place, with a strong claim on Europa League qualification, however Champions League dreams are slowly fading.

Draw against Paderborn two weeks ago at VELTINS-Arena was a continuation of the Royal Blues’ unbeaten run that last since August when Bayern got the better off them.

Five victories and same number of ties doesn’t strike a fear in anyone coming to Gelsenkirchen but paint us a picture of a well-organized, stubborn and structured side nobody should take lightly.

Die Roten Bullen put in a strong, superior performance away at Tottenham Hotspur to claim a humongous 1-0 advantage after the first leg of their UEFA Champions League last-16 tie with TImo Werner getting another goal to his name from the penalty spot.

Back on German soil, Julian Nagelsmann’s men finally ended their winless streak with a confident showing against one of the relegation favorites. 
They easily dismantling Bremen, but RBL’s brief poor spell allowed Bundesliga despots Bayern Munich to overrun them to the top, with just a point separating the two.

On the road, the Red Bulls are second only to hated Munich side when it comes to proficiency.

Having collected 21 points from eleven games, though I must mention that they haven’t come home with all the spoils in the bag since January. They lost at Frankfurt and holding off Bayern at Allianz Arena to a goalless draw.

Schalke 04 vs RB Leipzig Predictions

Die Roten Bullen returned to form in the league with a win against weakly Bremen but their real confidence booster will be the comfortable victory against Tottenham in London.

As the team is used to midweek fixtures, they’ll ride that confidence wave to another Bundesliga triumph against shaken and ponderous Schalke 04.

But we won’t be seeing overblown scoreline we’re used to from Leipzig. Trip to England might have taken some toll so the Red Bulls.

Julian Nagelsmann’s men won’t be at 100% but even at their weaker state, they’re better, more dangerous and with enough creative spark and discipline to see off and contain uninspiring and impotent Royal Blues.
