RB Leipzig is welcoming Arminia Bielefeld to Red Bull Arena in round 9 in the German Bundesliga.
Leipzig has been a bit shaky as of late, and they have lost their Champions League game against PSG earlier this week despite being a much better team in that game. As far as Bundesliga goes, Leipzig is in 4th place with 17 points, 16 scored goals, and 5 conceded goals. Leipzig hasn’t lost any of their last 2 Bundesliga games, and they have scored 4 goals while conceding 1 goal during that stretch. In their latest Bundesliga game, Leipzig was playing against Eintracht on the road, and they were the better team with 63% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and a decent 80% of the correct passes. Leipzig was losing at half time, but they got back into this game with a goal in the 57th minute. The final score of this match was 1-1. The race to the top 2 spots in their Champions League group is tense, and Leipzig is now in 3rd place with 6 points, same as PSG in second place, but there are 2 more games left, and either of these teams can go to the next stage or the Europa League. Poulsen and Angelino are the leading goalscorers for Leipzig with 3 goals, each, while Sabitzer and Forsberg added 2 goals each. Dani Olmo has added 3 assists. Laimer, Klostermann, and Hwang are all injured, and they will not be playing in this game. Leipzig is a great team with one of the best couches in the world, and I see them getting back on track soon.
Arminia hasn’t won any of their last 7 games while losing 6 of those 7 games. Arminia has conceded 15 goals in their last 5 games, while they scored only 3 goals. Union Berlin has one of the weakest defenses in Bundesliga this season, and they are in 16th place with only 4 points. In their last game, Arminia was hosting Leverkusen, and they have had only 30% of ball possession, 0 shots on goal, 0 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and only 67% of the correct passes. Arminia has lost this game 1-2, and the only goal they scored was an own goal by Leverkusen. Soukou, Edmundsson, Schipplock, and Doan have each scored 1 goal for Arminia, while Doan, Klos, and Ortega added 1 assist each. Maier is the only injured player for Arminia at this time. The good news for Arminia is that there are plenty of weak teams in Bundesliga this season, and they might just be lucky enough to stay outside the relegation zone.
Arminia hasn’t won any of their last 7 games, while they haven’t won any of their games on the road. Leipzig has won all of their home games so far this season, and they are in solid form. Leipzig will look to bounce back after that unfortunate loss to PSG earlier this week, and Arminia is the perfect team to do so.
