RB Leipzig vs Real Madrid predictions
Real Madrid are in fantastic form in the league and Champions League making this a value bet for Madrid to win away from home at better than evens.
They will have to do it without Jude Bellingham now though who picked up an injury at the weekend after scoring a brace.
The youngster was brought into this squad as the bright centre defensive midfielder with experience well beyond his age, and though he’s out injured would have likely continued his fantastic record.
Scoring as many as 16 goals in 21 matches in La Liga and four goals in five matches in the UCL.
RB Leipzig are only fifth in the league this year, losing three of their last five in the Bundesliga, in a season where Bayern Munich are also suddenly dropping the ball.
Leipzig are 18 points behind Leverkusen and 13 behind Munich and don’t look like getting something from this match.
