<div><h2>RB Leipzig vs Schalke</h2><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/de/bundesliga/rb-leipzig-vs-fc-schalke-04-3841015/?mtid=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Bundesliga Betting Odds"><strong>Saturday, September 28, at Red Bull Arena (Leipzig)</strong></a></p><p>RB Leipzig secured their spot at the top of the table with an impressive 3-0 win away to Werder Bremen. Willi Orban, Marcel Sabitzer and Marcelo Saracchi handed them a superb win against a tough opponent. Despite being red carded in the 2nd half playing more than 25 minutes with 1 man down, the leaders managed to keep a clean sheet against a team who scored in all but 1 match last season in the German top-flight league. On the other side, despite a slow start to their domestic season, Schalke enter this match on the back of 3 consecutive wins in which they scored 10 goals. Amine Harit scored an amazing late winner for Schalke last round against Mainz to retain their 5th spot in the Bundesliga standings. Schalke’s 1st match against a top team was the 3-0 defeat to Bayern Munich in matchday 3. This is the 2nd time they will be tested this term and we don’t expect them to stop Leipzig’s brilliant run of form.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>After their superb 3:0-win last weekend, RB Leipzig’s new coach Juliann Nagelsmann declared after they will fight till the end to become champions and put an end to Bayern Munich’s Bundesliga total domination. RB Leipzig earned 13 points in 5 matches so far this season and they are the best defensive side in the league with just 3 goals conceded. They have a young team fully packed with high-quality players all over the pitch and they will probably have many downs this season but the important thing for them is to always focus on what their brilliant young manager tells them to do, because in our opinion Nagelsmann is Leipzig’s best transfer this season. For Schalke, Nabil Bentaleb remains sidelined with a long-time injury.</p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=160&amp;a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://imstore.bet365affiliates.com/AffiliateCreativeBanners/Sports/General/Bet%20Builder/en-GB/UK/STD/728x90_2.jpeg" style="width:100%" /></a></p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>RB Leipzig are looking very solid right now. They have a rock-solid defence, they are brilliant attacking firepower and most of all they are acting and playing as a team. They adapted fast to the ne coaching style and they brilliantly manage to change the formation multiple times per match giving headaches to their opponents. Despite not scoring against Werder Bremen last weekend, Timo Werner remains one of the best strikers in Bundesliga and he is expected to return to scoring ways being priced at 1.92 with Unibet to be anytime goalscorer. The hosts are favourite to win this match being priced at 1.5 with Bet365 (great for an acca bet) but for more value we will combine the “winners-market” with the “goals-market”.</p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Bundesliga Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: RB Leipzig to win and over 1.5 goals in the match at 1.75 with Coral.</strong></em></a></p></div>
