RB Leipzig vs Atalanta – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

RB Leipzig have lost just one of their last 15 matches in all competitions ahead of their tussle with Atalanta. Read our top three predictions for this week’s fixture below.

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

RB Leipzig to Win

Domenico Tedesco’s RB Leipzig warmed up for Thursday’s crucial Europa League encounter with a thumping 4-1 win at Borussia Dortmund on Saturday evening and Die Roten Bullen have tasted defeat just once in 15 fixtures overall. Leipzig are playing with a real verve at present and they should have enough class to beat an Atalanta outfit whose confidence was dented in a 3-1 reverse to Napoli on Sunday in Serie A.

Over 2.5 Goals

Both RB Leipzig and Atalanta are renowned for their commitment to attacking football and the tactical battle between Domenico Tedesco and La Dea boss Gian Piero Gasperini promises to produce fireworks on Thursday. 100% of Leipzig’s continental contests in the UCL and UEL this term have produced over 2.5 goals, so expect to be entertained again in Germany this week.

Both Teams to Score

RB Leipzig’s incisive attacking football can sometimes be offset by a defensive lapse or two, though that combination holds plenty of promise for bettors on the hunt for BTTS options this week. Indeed, both teams to score has landed in seven of Die Roten Bullen’s eight European fixtures in 2021/22 and we’re tipping RB to trade blows with Gasperini’s adventurous Atalanta side on Thursday.

RB Leipzig vs Atalanta Match Preview and Team News

RB Leipzig

Goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi returned to the RB XI against Dortmund at the weekend and the Hungarian stopper should be fit enough to feature again on Thursday. Amadou Haidara and Yussuf Poulsen were unavailable against Dortmund and both players could miss out again this week. Bayern Munich have been the only side to topple Leipzig since the turn of the year.

Atalanta

Centre half Rafael Toloi and experienced schemer Josip Ilicic both missed Sunday’s loss to Napoli through injury and neither player is expected to return in time to play against RB Leipzig on Thursday. La Dea have won only six of their last 15 matches in all competitions and their season is teetering on the edge of collapse.
