What’s going on in the Bundesliga? Nine teams are at the top of the table in just two points. RB Leipzig is also in the thick of it, with the Bulls already leading the standings and having canceled out their good number of bad games in recent weeks.
RB Leipzig vs Zenit St. Petersburg Free Betting Tips
The Saxons are on the threshold of a crisis. Not a few teams, however, have managed to be successful on the international stage, also nationally. Maybe the Bulls will succeed in the Champions League on Wednesday, when the team of Zenit St. Petersburg will be in Leipzig.
RB Leipzig still has some catching up to do in the group G classification. With three points from two games, the Bulls are in third place. At the top are currently Zenit St. Petersburg and Olympique Lyon, each with four counters. Taillight Benfica Lisbon is still without a point and thus already in the background.
For the people of Leipzig, it would be enormously important to end the negative series of the last few weeks on Wednesday against Zenit. Meanwhile, it is the claim of the bulls to move into the knockout stages of the Champions League. That should be possible in this group, but only if RB goes to the limit. Nevertheless, we are having a hard time predicting a home win in the match between RB Leipzig and Zenit St. Petersburg.
While Leipzig could not win any more recently, the Russians have apparently overcome their small mini-crisis. The eleven of Sergey Semak has recently restarted. As a result, we tend to see our guests in the role of favorites and can imagine giving away an away win between RB Leipzig and Zenit St. Petersburg before the kick-off.
Therefore, we expect very concentrated Leipzig, but in terms of international experience can not keep up with the Russian guests. Let’s see if that will make the difference.
RB Leipzig – Statistics & Current Form
The bulls have started brilliantly into the season. It is difficult to say why it is that currently runs very little, but it must be said that they do not play Saxony as bad as the results say. A shortcoming is certainly the opportunity exploitation, which has cost in recent weeks, one or the other point.
Thus, RB Leipzig is in the table of the Bundesliga only in fifth place. Still nothing is burned, because until the leader Mönchengladbach just missing a single counter. This shows what would have been possible if the eleven of Julian Nagelsmann had also performed successfully in recent weeks.
Currently, Leipzig has been waiting for a win for four games. At home there were last in three games a draw and two defeats. That’s a balance the bulls can not live with. However, that is also the reason why we in the match between RB Leipzig and Zenit St. Petersburg, the low odds of bookmakers on a home win can not really understand.
Last weekend, VfL Wolfsburg was a guest in Leipzig. For a long time it looked as if RasenBallsport could bring home a victory in this match. Timo Werner brought the Saxons shortly after the break in the lead, but Wolfsburg used in the final phase still a great opportunity to 1-1 final score.
For the first time Julian Nagelsmann is said to have become really loud as Leipzig coach after the game. By negligence points are given away in good regularity.
“The demands that we have and where we want to go are not enough at the moment.” – Julian Nagelsmann
Therefore, the coach makes it clear that his team is running after their own claims for the moment. A victory in the premier class could probably only soothe the coach.
We assume that there will be a slight rotation. Nordi Mukiele, Emil Forsberg and Marcel Halstenberg are candidates for the starting lineup, maybe even the recovering Kevin Kampl. The injured Tyler Adams, Ibrahima Konate, Patrick Schick and Hannes Wolf, who were not able to play in the Bundesliga last time, are not part of the match.
Expected formation of RB Leipzig:
↪ Gulacsi – Mukiele, Upamecano, Orban – Klostermann, Laimer, Halstenberg – Sabitzer, Forsberg – Werner, Poulsen
↪ Coach: Nagelsmann

Zenit St. Petersburg – Statistics & Current Form
Zenit St. Petersburg does not sound like the big adversary, but at least since the 2018 World Cup football in Russia has experienced a very big upswing, possibly benefiting the clubs as well. Bayer Leverkusen can sing a song after the home defeat in the premier class against Lokomotiv Moscow.
Zenit is as strong as Lok, so RB Leipzig should be warned this Wednesday. With another home defeat in the Champions League, the Saxons would fall behind in the fight for the knockout stages. However, Zenit St. Petersburg has not won the European Cup for ten away games.
In contrast, however, is the currently good form of the Russians. From the last ten competitive games Zenit took eight wins and a draw and only had to give up once. In the national league, St. Petersburg is at the top of the league table after 29 matchdays with 29 points, together with Lok Moscow.
Last Saturday, St. Petersburg delivered a gala performance. In the top match of the Russian Premier League Zenit won at home against FK Rostov 6: 1. Once again center forward Artem Dzyuba was the match winner. After 20 minutes he had already made single-handedly to 2: 0 and increased in the further course of the game to 5: 0.
Serdar Azmoun, Vyacheslav Karavaev and Wilmar Barrios were the other scorers. If the eleven of Sergey Semak in Leipzig can only approximately match this performance, it will be difficult for the Bulls. In the match between RB Leipzig and Zenit St. Petersburg to make a prediction for an away win, we do not consider rash.
On Wednesday, the Russians will be able to compete in Germany almost full chapel. There is no reason to change the formation of the weekend, especially since nothing has happened in the case of injuries. Furthermore, only Emmanuel Mammana and the Malcom from Barcelona are missing. All other players are fit.
Expected formation of Zenit St. Petersburg:
↪ Kerzhakov – Karavaev, Ivanovic, Rakitsky, Douglas Santos – Ozdoev, Barrios, Shatov, Driussi – Azmoun, Dzyuba
↪ Coach: Semak
