Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
After sharing the spoils with Bayer Leverkusen at BayArena, Leipzig will be looking to return to winning ways in the Bundesliga when they host Schalke at their Red Bull Arena. The Red Bulls continue life without Timo Werner, and seeing that first-choice centre-forward Yussuf Poulsen suffered an injury at the weekend, summer signing Hee-Chan Hwang is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts.
Die Knappen, on the other hand, kicked off the season with an embarrassing 8-0 loss to Bayern Munchen, with the team suffering a 3-1 defeat to Werder Bremen at the weekend. Schalke 04 are low on confidence ahead of the trip to Leipzig, and seeing that talented defender Ozan Kabak must serve his ban against the Red Bulls, we predict that the visitors are going to return to Gelsenkirchen empty-handed. In their last meeting in Bundesliga Leipzig outclassed Schalke 5-0.
