Schalke vs RB Leipzig Predictions
- Leipzig have kept clean sheets in six of their last nine league games
- Bottom-club Schalke have failed to score in five of their last seven home league matches
- Leipzig have shutout Schalke in four of their last five outings
Struggling Miners set for more misery
Schalke have collected only eight points from their opening 19 Bundesliga games and although performances are improving, relegation is looking increasingly likely for The Miners.
Basement boys Schalke are nine points adrift of survival and they have registered just one league victory from 19 attempts. Seven of their ten games at the Veltins Arena have resulted in defeat and another loss may follow against Leipzig.
The Miners are the joint-lowest scorers in the Bundesliga with only 15 goals scored and nobody has conceded more than the 49 goals they have shipped.
Schalke have fired blanks in five of their last seven league matches on home soil, which includes defeats against Wolfsburg (2-0), Leverkusen (3-0) and Bayern (4-0).
Given their lack of attacking intent, Schalke may struggle to breach a Leipzig outfit that boasts the Bundesliga’s best defence with only 17 goals conceded in 19 matches.
The visitors have kept clean sheets in six of their last nine league games and eight of their 11 wins this term were recorded to nil.
It is also worth noting that Leipzig have kept cleans sheets against Schalke in four of their last five rivalries and we predict that trend to continue here.
Each of Leipzig’s last four Bundesliga wins have finished 1-0 and Schalke’s desperation for points may mean they are plucky in defeat.
