RB Leipzig vs Real Sociedad – Best Betting Tips, Odds, & Predictions

RB Leipzig produced a dominant performance during the weekend to beat FC Cologne 3-1 at home. The game was effectively over before the hour as goals from Nkunku, Olmo, and Angelino gave RB Leipzig a commanding lead. Real Sociedad managed a 2-0 victory over Granada to register the first win in four games. Mikel Oyarzabal’s first-half penalty was followed up by Rafinha’s second-half goal.

RB Leipzig victory

RB Leipzig have been in dominant form especially in the home matches. A sequence of four consecutive wins for RB Leipzig in the home matches certainly make it difficult for Real Sociedad to expect anything out of this game. The Spanish outfit have struggled in away European games with just one win – a narrow success over Sturm Graz – in the last five on the road.

Christopher Nkunku to score anytime

Christopher Nkunku is into double figures for the campaign in the Bundesliga after 11 goals in 21 games. He has scored in back-to-back games for RB Leipzig. On the European front, the 24-year-old has failed to score only in two of the last six Champions League appearances.

Both teams to score – yes

Even though Real Sociedad have been struggling for goals of late, they have been able to raise their game to a certain extent for the European matches. RB Leipzig suffer from the occasional loss in concentration like they did against Cologne during the weekend. This should mean goals at both ends.
