It does not always have to be a duel between first and second to go through as a top game. On big game days there is no big hit and then the duel between the sixth and the second is the hit of the weekend. So it is this Saturday when Schalke 04 is expecting the bulls from Leipzig.
Schalke vs RB Leipzig Free Betting Tips
David Wagner’s team is currently fighting to make a comeback in the European Cup in the coming season. At times it looked as if the Royal Blues could even fight for places in the Champions League, but now the trend is more towards the Europa League.
Schalke currently occupy sixth place in the Bundesliga table. The top quartet is already at least six points away. The focus should therefore initially be on securing sixth place, preferably with a win on Saturday against the Saxons from Leipzig.
The bulls could, at least theoretically before the game day, take the lead. The prerequisite for this is a loss of points by Bayern at home against Paderborn on Friday. You can find information about this match in our Bundesliga tips. However, it can be assumed that the Bulls will not make up for the gap from one point to Munich this matchday.
This is obviously the most popular kick-off time at RB Leipzig, because no other team has historically had a better record than the Saxons on this date. The Schalke, on the other hand, received the most defeats of all Bundesliga clubs in the top games of the game day. That speaks for placing a tip on an away win in the duel between Schalke and RB Leipzig.
In general, in the duel between Schalke and RB Leipzig, the prognosis goes in the direction of the guests. The match on Schalke will not be an easy task for the bulls, but if you can win at the Hotspurs in London, you should also have a chance of winning in Gelsenkirchen. The kick-off for matchday 23 in the Bundesliga between Schalke 04 and RB Leipzig in the Veltins-Arena will take place on February 22, 2020.
Schalke – Statistics & current form
David Wagner didn’t make a good start in the Veltins Arena. The first match was lost to Bayern in front of their own audience. Since then, Schalke have been undefeated at home for ten games in a row (five wins, five draws).
If this series continues against Leipzig, it will be tested again in the next home game, in the cup against Bayern. More information will follow in our DFB Cup tips.
Schalke was without a win four times for the first time under Wagner
Overall, the new coach felt the whole club under the arm and emotionally swept away. For the first time under David Wagner there has been no victory in four Bundesliga games. In addition, there was just one hit during this period.
Qualifying for the Champions League is currently hard to imagine under these conditions.
Among other things, Mainz, Paderborn and Hertha went against quite solvable tasks. The miners seem to be at a crossroads. If the royal blues reflect on their strengths again, they will be represented internationally at the end of the season. Nevertheless, between Schalke and RB Leipzig we would rather not venture a tip for a home win.
It was scanty what the Schalke delivered last weekend at the guest appearance in Mainz. Sure, David Wagner’s team has gained field advantages, but the miners were far too harmless to attack. Almost consequently, the game was whistled at 0-0.
Schalke’s morality is still intact
Newcomer Michael Gregoritsch nevertheless makes it clear that the moral in Gelsenkirchen is completely intact and resists the fact that criticism from outside is increasing more and more.
“It’s not all shit, it’s not all bad. We work, we march, we step on the gas and we do not get stuck. ” – Michael Gregoritsch
The Austrian does not see everything badly and promises that Schalke will step on the gas against the bulls on Saturday and never give up.
A glimmer of hope is Suat Serdar, who should be operational on Saturday. Alessandro Schöpf threatens the bank. Ozan Kabak is traded as an option for Jean-Claire Todibo. Overall, however, David Wagner has to do without three extremely important players. Daniel Caligiuri, Salif Sane and Benjamin Stambouli will have to pass injured against Leipzig.
Probable lineup of Schalke:
↪ Nübel – Kenny, Kabak, Nastasic, Oczipka – Mascarell – McKennie, Serdar, Harit – Raman, Gregoritsch
↪ Coach: Wagner

RB Leipzig – Statistics & current form
Are the cops afraid of big names? There were seven victories in seven games against the relegation candidates, i.e. teams that are in the lower third of the table. Against the teams from the top third, including the Schalke, RB only won one game in seven games.
Timo Werner with escapement
What’s also going on with Timo Werner? The German national striker is still fighting a hot battle with Bayern’s Robert Lewandowski for the top scorer cannon in the Bundesliga, but the Leipzig player has apparently now had an inhibiting load. He has not scored in the German upper house for four games.
In the first half of the season Leipzig was by far the best away team in the league and scored five points more than the competition. Most recently, the cops abroad had their problems in the Bundesliga and have been waiting for a three-way game for three games away. But it worked in the Champions League on Tuesday in Tottenham.
Leipzig with a convincing win in the premier class
In the premier class, the Saxons were able to completely convince in the first leg of the round of 16. Perhaps the only drawback was that you didn’t win this game higher with the Spurs. In the end there was a more than deserved 1-0 win. Timo Werner was the penalty taker of the golden goal.
Apparently, the attacker did not completely forget goal scoring. However, the sack is not closed yet. As part of our Champions League tips, we will report whether the bulls have to tremble again in the second leg. Certainly this game cost grains. Nevertheless, the betting providers between Schalke and RB Leipzig give a clear prediction on the shower kickers.
Which formation Julian Nagelsmann will start with on Saturday depends on how much he rotates. He would have numerous options, especially when attacking. The Saxons continue to complain about some injured players. Tyler Adams, Kevin Kampl, Ibrahima Konate and Captain Willi Orban are not available.
Probable lineup of RB Leipzig:
↪ Gulacsi – Klostermann, Upamecano, Halstenberg – Mukiele, Sabitzer, Laimer, Angelino – Nkunku, Werner, Poulsen
