Tip Reasoning

  • Leipzig must win to guarantee their place in the Champions League next season.
  • Arminia Bielefeld must win and make up a seven-goal swing to have any chance of survival.
  • The majority of Bielefeld’s home league defeats (60%) and Leipzig’s away league wins (67%) eclipsed a -1 handicap.

Bielefeld must go for broke

The introduction of caretaker manager Marco Kostmann has done little to remedy Bielefeld’s woeful form, as the three winless games under his tenure (D1, L2) has only served to extend their run without victory to ten games.

Three points shy of the relegation play off place and with a far inferior goal difference to Stuttgart, Bielefeld must get at it right from the off here in search of a huge win in hopes that Stuttgart will lose their game with Cologne.

However, such a gung ho approach will likely leave gaps open, space that Leipzig will be more than happy to slip into and punish the all but relegated side. In truth, any hopes of retaining top-flight status now seem forlorn at best for Bielefeld.

It all comes down to this for Leipzig

Perhaps the most interesting subplot on the final day is that Leipzig must at least nab a draw in this game to secure a top-four position while the only team that can realistically oust them from the top-four on the final day is Freiburg… The side they will face in the DFB Pokal final next time out.

Given the absolute gulf in class between these sides, we can see no other outcome than an away win, though the value is added by taking Leipzig in the -1 handicap market.

We predict that Bielefeld may well nab a goal, but ultimately in a commanding 3-1 victory for Leipzig as they confirm their place within the top-four.
