Arminia Bielefeld is hosting RB Leipzig at Schuco-Arena in round 34 of the German Bundesliga. Arminia has to get a win here if they want to have a chance at staying in Bundesliga, but it will be pretty much impossible. Leipzig needs a win here to secure their Champions League spot, and to stay in good form ahead of their DFB Pokal finals.
Arminia is in low 17th place with 27 points, which is 3 points less than Stuttgart has in 16th place, but even if Arminia gets the win here, it won’t mean much if Stuttgart gets a positive result in their game. With only 26 scored goals, Arminia is one of the weakest offensive teams in the league, while their defense is bad, they are the best among the worst. Okugawa is the leading goalscorer for Arminia with 8 goals, while Wimmer has added 6 assists. Bielefeld is in bad form right now, they are not doing much on either end, and their chances of them staying in the Bundesliga are slim to none. Arminia also has a few injuries, and I’m sure they are disappointed for not staying in the league.
Leipzig has only 2 wins in their last 5 games, but they were able to get to that 4th place in Bundesliga, which is the Champions League spot. Leipzig has to get a win here to stay in 4th, but possibly even the draw will be enough. Next week, Leipzig will be playing in the DFB Pokal finals against Freiburg, and they will go for the win to get at least 1 trophy this season. Nkunku has scored 20 goals and added 13 assists for Leipzig this season, and if they will be able to keep him for next season, it will be a job well done. Silva has added 11 goals for Leipzig. The Europa League was disappointing for Leipzig, and they should have done better, but there is always next season. Leipzig’s priority right now is to secure the Champions League spot, but after that, they have the title match in the DFB Pokal. Leipzig is back on the winning track, they are playing well, they have an excellent team, and they don’t have any injuries. I think Leipzig will get the win here, and I think they are big favorites to win the DFB Pokal as well.
The prices are insane in this game, but Leipzig is a heavy favorite here. Arminia’s chances are basically zero, but we can never know. I think Leipzig starts fast in this one, and I think they will get a nice win, while also scoring a few goals in the process.
