Leipzig should maintain their home dominance
Leipzig were no match for Liverpool in the Champions League in midweek but they can successfully switch their attention to domestic duties at home to Frankfurt, in a heavyweight clash which should live up to expectations.
It is second meets fourth in the Bundesliga but it is the higher-ranked hosts who arrive in better nick.
Leipzig have recorded six straight league wins while Frankfurt, who are ten points below Julian Nagelsmann’s side, are winless in two having suffered a 2-1 defeat at Werder Bremen prior to being held to a 1-1 draw at home to Stuttgart.
Frankfurt showed their class in a 2-1 win at home to Bayern Munich at the back end of last month and their scoring prowess – they have netted 25 goals in 12 away games – makes them a match for anybody.
But Leipzig are a formidable force at home, where they have won ten of their 12 league games, whereas Frankfurt are at their most vulnerable on the road.
The visitors have won only five of their 12 away league games this season and they have conceded 20 goals across those road outings.
We predict Leipzig to prevail, but are expecting a free-scoring Frankfurt to make their mark.
Both teams have scored in seven of the last nine meetings between the pair and Leipzig have conceded in winning each of their last two home league matches.
Correct-score punters should take Leipzig to win 2-1 – Frankfurt’s last two away league defeats finished that way.
