Kick-off:
Venue: Red Bull Arena (Leipzig)
Leipzig have already begun the season in brilliant fashion, claiming four points from their first two games to occupy fourth-spot. Even though it’s still early in the season, some fans cannot help themselves clamoring for a potential title challenge.

Meanwhile, Schalke 04 are in a rough patch at the moment. Sitting afoot the standings, Die Knappen have fallen to defeat in their previous two games, and are already in crisis mode. They need a win soon enough, to boost morale amongst themselves.

RB Leipzig vs Schalke 04 Team News

Gradually building their stature, Leipzig are growing to become a huge force to reckon with in German football. They may not have developed enough to begin challenging for the league title but are definitely one of the best Bundesliga sides.

Over the past three campaigns, the Red Bulls have finished either second or third on the log, proving their brilliance. Last season, they made for a great spectacle, wowing on-lookers with their eye-catchy style of play.

Playing a balanced game, Leipzig were as strong in defense as they were on the attacking front. Boasting the second-best defensive home record in the league – only behind eventual champions Bayern Munich – rival teams never fancied a trip to the Red Bull Arena.

Also, they were in free-scoring form, firing on all cylinders. With German talisman Timo Werner spearheading the attack, the Red Bulls recorded a staggering 81 goals from 34 games. However, their struggles to convert draws into victories let them down massively.

Nagelsmann’s charges succumbed to defeat just four times throughout the campaign – level with Bayern Munich. However, their season-high record of twelve draws held them back as they fell off the pace in the race for Bundesliga glory.

This season, they will be looking to be more ruthless to record more victories. Their last game saw them salvage a draw against Bayer Leverkusen. Forsberg’s early effort was canceled out by Demirbay’s 20th minute strike as both sides shared the spoils.

If Leipzig are to truly challenge for the league title this season, they need to turn one point into three points more consistently. This Saturday, they should have no problems defeating Schalke 04, who are currently in the worst form of their life.

The Royal Blues are yet to secure a point this season, and are rooted to the bottom of the standings. In fact, the last time they won a Bundesliga game was far back in January. Such has been this side’s woefulness this year!

Parting ways with David Wagner few days ago, Manuel Baum has been appointed new manager at the club. They will be hoping the German gaffer helps revive them from their slump as they target a top-half finish this term.

Injured or Suspended Players

RB Leipzig: Fabrice Hartmann, Konrad Laimer, Marcel Sabitzer and Yussuf Poulsen.

RB Leipzig vs Schalke Predictions

From all indications, this should be an easy win for Leipzig. With Poulsen out injured, they will probably not register as many goals as they would like. However, expect them to grab one or two, to pile on the misery for the Royal Blues.
