RB Leipzig 6/5 to beat Hannover and over 2.5 goals in Friday’s Bundesliga battle
Market: RB Leipzig win and over 2.5 goals
Odds: 6/5 @ Bet 365
Desperately looking to shore up their position in the Champions League positions, RB Leipzig will travel to struggling HDI-Arena on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, carrying on their worrying run of form entering the New Year, Hannover are almost universally tipped for relegation this season. In their 19 Bundesliga games this season, they have recorded just two wins, five draws and 12 defeats, scoring 18 and conceding 41 in return. Friday’s hosts currently hold the third worse defensive record in Germany’s top-tier and only their goal difference keeps them off bottom spot. Now losing their last two matches on the bounce, Hannover have also conceded nine in their last three and are without a win since the start of November.
As for the visitors, keeping up their impressive momentum in 2019, RB Leipzig remain in pole position to land a top-four finish in the Bundesliga this season. In their 19 games this season, they have won 10, drawn four and lost five, scoring 35 and conceding just 18 in return. Germany’s latest franchise currently hold the joint best defensive record in the division. As for their recent run of form, putting four past Fortuna Dusseldorf last weekend, Leipzig have now lost just one of their last five matches across all competitions. Given the gulf in class between the two sides, we’re backing a convincing win for Friday’s visitors.
