Real Madrid vs RB Leipzig Tips
Carlo Ancelotti’s men opened with a win in match-day one, they beat Ante Postecoglou’s Celtic in Scotland 3-0 despite a goalless first half where Celtic had chances of their own. Vinicius Junior, Luka Modric and Eden Hazard scored the goals after the break whilst the Scots tired and the European giants showed their class.
Leipzig were stunned at the Red Bull Arena last Tuesday by Ukrainian side Shakhtar who won the game 4-1 in a clinical display. Igor Jovicevic’s men had just five shots on the night in comparison to the hosts 12, they went off at 8/1 to win that night.
Despite Real Madrid’s perfect start to the league season in Spain, they haven’t kept a clean sheet in five attempts. They have conceded exactly once in each and have netted 15 goals in return. For Real Madrid to win the match, the best odds on offer are 4/7 so it’s a huge jump backing the win and both sides to find the back of the net at 9/5.
Domenico Tedesco lost his job as Leipzig boss after the heavy defeat last midweek, former Dortmund manager Marco Rose was appointed to take over the club, he and his side got off to a flyer in his opening game as they thrashed Dortmund 3-0 at home on Saturday afternoon.
Leipzig have played seven times since the opening day of the league season, they’ve scored 10 goals in total and have found the back of the net in six separate matches. The visitors should arrive here in confidence after turning over Dortmund over the weekend and will know the Los Blancos' defence is certainly there for the taking.
Backing a very talented Frenchman here in the goal scorer markets on Wednesday night. The 24-year-old has played every single minute for Leipzig this season and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. He’s scored four times in six Bundesliga appearances this term after scoring 20 in 34 last season.
Nkunku had an excellent record in Europe last season, netting seven goals in six Champions League group stage clashes and then followed that up with four in six Europa League knockout games.
The 4/1 looks a solid price given Real Madrid’s defensive record this campaign, and with the Germans suffering an opening round defeat, they’ll want to bounce back in style at one of the greatest stadiums of them all.
In what should be one of the standout games in the Champions League on Wednesday night, I’m happy to get behind each of these selections in the Spanish capital at 9/5 and 3/1 respectively.
