Reason for RB Leipzig vs Liverpool Predictions
In Germany, travel restrictions mean this game couldn’t be played in the country, and both managers have stated they are okay with playing at a neutral venue. It is going to be the first-ever meeting between these two sides, and they’ve had mixed fortunes going to the game. RB Leipzig is coming from a 2-1 win over Augsburg despite resting five key players in preparation for the Liverpool game. That win made it four on the bounce for RB Leipzig. They have lost just two of their last 15 matches and won 11. In four of the previous five games, they’ve scored two or more goals. A total of 12 goals in the last five matches is a very good return for RB Leipzig, who have also been great in defense, conceding thrice in the five games. Dani Olmo creates a lot of problems with his opponents on the right flank. It’s hard to keep this guy in a one-on-one game, as he has fantastic dribbles. Marcel Sabitzer is a real football pearl, and it is a pleasure to watch this guy, he is a real team leader.
On the other hand, Liverpool has been sloppy in recent times and head here on three straight losses and six in 10. They have no clean sheet in the last seven matches and have managed just one in the previous ten. A long injury list isn’t helping, and it was made worse with three new confirmations on Saturday. At the moment, it is in defense that the injuries have really stung, while goalkeeper Alison Becker’s solidity has been in question with erratic performances lately. The team is coming from a 3-1 defeat to Leicester City, the second straight game in which they’ve conceded three or more goals. While they’ve failed to score in five of their last 11 matches, lately, they’ve been somewhat consistent in the attack. Georginio Wijnaldum plays well in the middle of the pitch, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Sadio Mane plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable.
It is going to be an exciting clash, as RB Leipzig is not without a chance of remaining undefeated. Liverpool is in a poor form, and we believe this game could end in a draw.
We can expect a big fight between these two teams, and both of them should be able to score. We don’t believe either side will keep the clean sheet.
