Leverkusen vs RB Leipzig predictions and betting tips
It is the season’s first game, and Leverkusen welcomes RB Leipzig at the BayArena on Saturday, 19th August 2023. Here are the best predictions for the Bundesliga clash, Leverkusen vs RB Leipzig, by Punditfeed:
Both teams to score – Yes
We bet on both teams to score in our first Leverkusen vs. RB Leipzig prediction. A pre-season win 0f 8-nil against Teutonia 05 in the DFB Pokal set the stage for an excellent start to the 2023/24 campaign. The hosts lost once in their last five, excluding the pre-season friendlies. RB Leipzig on the other hand bagged a 0-3 win over Bayen to win the Super Cup and won all their last five outings, excluding pre-season matches.
Over 2.5 goals
We expect this to be a highly entertaining clash given the good firm of both teams. We are tipping a high-scoring match on matchday, so over 2.5 goals is our second Leverkusen vs RB Leipzig prediction.
Leverkusen to score first
In another Leverkusen vs RB Leipzig prediction, we have settled on Bayen Leverkusen to score the opener in this game. Kicking off the season and with good form should be in handy for Leverkusen, so there is a good chance they will score the opener in this first game of the 2023/24 Bundesliga season against RB Leipzig.
Leverkusen vs RB Leipzig round 1 Bundesliga fixture preview
Leverkusen did not end their 2022/23 season well, going without a win in five straight games. However, losing only once in their last five matches, which do not include the pre-season friendlies and winning massively in the DFB Pokal should hand Bayer Leverkusen the momentum they need to have a good campaign this 2023/24 season. They won at home in the last home clash with RB Leipzig, a 2-0 victory they would be keen to better in this season opener.
RB Leipzig won the Super Cup, defeating Bayern Munich 0-3. They have now won five games on the bounce, excluding the pre-season friendlies. RB should be tough opposition in this season opener, so a goal or more from the visitors is highly likely.
