Can Leipzig keep the winning street ??
- Title : Can Leipzig keep the winning street ??
Finally it can be heard again, the anthem of the Champions League. As always, there are many old friends, but also newcomers. With RB Leipzig, a team will intervene on Tuesday that only failed in the semifinals to Paris Saint-Germain last season. The opponent in the Red Bull Arena is the debutant Basaksehir from Istanbul.
The roles should therefore be clearly assigned in this encounter. It would be a very big surprise if the current leaders of the Bundesliga were to drop points against the Turkish champions or even lose them. Rather, everything indicates that the Bulls will start the group stage with a sovereign victory.
This duel in particular could have a decisive character with regard to rank three, or maybe even two. With Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain, this preliminary group is completed by two heavyweights. Therefore, the prognosis is clear even before the first match day between RB Leipzig and Basaksehir: If you lose, it will be difficult in this hammer group.
For the Saxons, this means that they must not allow themselves to slip if the desired round of 16 is not to be in danger. Accordingly, we expect a committed team from Julian Nagelsmann, which prompts us to tip the bulls between RB Leipzig and Basaksehir.
My Tip here is Leipzig to win -1.5 handicap
For the first time ever, Leipzig and Basaksehir meet. The Bulls have played two games against clubs from the Süperlig so far. In 2017/18 the Saxons lost both games against Besiktas in the group stage of the premier class. However, the odds comparison of the betting base says that there will be no further defeat against a Turkish team on Tuesday.
Basaksehir with victory in Gladbach last year
Basaksehir has even played four games against German teams. The balance is balanced. In addition to two draws, there is a win and a defeat. The success in Gladbach last season came as an enormous surprise. In this game too, the Turks were the big underdogs and clearly won.
