Tip Reasoning

  • Over 3.5 goals have been scored in four of Leipzig’s eight games this term, including three from four at Red Bull Arena.
  • Die Rotten Bullen have netted a dozen goals overall in their four home starts across all competitions.
  • Two of Bochum’s last three outings have produced over 3.5 goals, with Thomas Reis’ side shipping ten across those fixtures.

Another goal fest likely at Red Bull Arena

Struggling RB Leipzig should bag a confidence boosting success against Bochum this Saturday, though punters are to advised steer clear of the hosts at an extremely short price.

It’s been an extremely messy start to the campaign for Die Rotten Bullen, who have evidently been impacted by Julian Nagelsmann’s departure to Bayern Munich over the summer. The club’s appointment of Jesse Marsch was questionable, and so far, the American is failing to get a grip of things at Red Bull Arena.

Runners-up last term, Leipzig are already nine points adrift of leaders Bayern in Bundesliga after three defeats from six (W2, D1), while they’ve also lost their opening two UEFA Champions League group games after a 2-1 reverse here against Club Brugge on Tuesday.

With newly promoted Bochum losing four from six including all three of their away trips, Saturday’s clash offers Leipzig a decent opportunity to start moving back in the right direction, though odds of 1/5 make zero appeal based on how badly they’ve been defending – even in terms of inclusion in any weekend accumulators.

Leipzig have leaked 13 goals in their last five outings across all competitions, though they’re still managing to produce the goods in attack, with a dozen scored in those matches.

Three of the hosts’ last four games at Red Bull Arena have generated over 3.5 goals, and that looks the best wager for punters here, with Bochum shipping ten goals overall on their travels.

Leipzig still possess an abundance of quality in attack which is likely to hurt Thomas Reis’ side, though their defensive woes mean the visitors can also chip in with a goal to take us over the required tally.

While the hosts are easily avoided in the match betting, correct score backers should fully focus on a Leipzig success this Saturday and a 4-2 result could be worth chancing for significant potential reward.
