RB Leipzig v Celtic Champions League Preview, 25th October 8.00pm

This is a big game in Group B of the Europa League. Leipzig and Celtic are level on three points each, trailing group leaders Salzburg by three.

RB Leipzig News and Form

Leipzig got off to a losing start in the group, suffering a late defeat against Salzburg on home soil. But they responded well with a comfortable three points away at Rosenborg on match day two. Before that loss against Salzburg on match day one, Leipzig were on a five-match winning streak at home in Europe. They will go into this fixture, their first ever against a side from Scotland. It’s worth backing both teams to score at 7/10 odds* (betting odds taken on October 23rd, 2018 at 3:31 pm) in this fixture as they have just two clean sheets in eight European fixtures so far.

Leipzig finished sixth in the Bundesliga last season to make it to their second European campaign only. They ran all the way to the quarter finals on their debut last season in the Europa League. This season they had to get through the qualifying rounds and they took out Zorya in the play off round with a 3-2 aggregate, Emil Forsberg netting a crucial late penalty to put them through against the Ukrainians.

Leipzig have only lost two games all season in all competitions, the one against Salzburg and a league defeat against Borussia Dortmund. They are unwanted in their last six with a W4 D2 record on the board. Their European form is W4 D3 L1 with all but one of those victories posted at home. They have come up with at least two goals all four of their Europa home games so over 2.5 goals is at 4/7 odds* (betting odds taken on October 23rd, 2018 at 3:31 pm).

RB Leipzig v Celtic Head to Head

Leipzig and Celtic have never met before.

Celtic News and Form

Celtic got off to a winning start in the group, debating Rosenberg. But then they suffered a loss at Salzburg on match day two and another away defeat on Thursday would be pretty damaging for them. The worrying thing for Celtic is that they have a poor record against German opposition. Celtic have only managed to win three of their previous European fixtures against German opponents (D5 L14).

From their eleven previous visits to Germany, Celtic have never won, losing eight of those. The Scottish Champions have drawn two of their last three games in Germany. They played out a 0-0 draw at Hamburg in their only previous Europa League fixture in Germany back in the 20089/10 group stage. The reading gets a little worse as well for Celtic.

The Glasgow giants have never managed to win an away game in 13 attempts in the UEFA Europa League (D8 L5). They have managed to score in each of their last nine away games though in Europe and in all but two of their previous 13 Europa league away games. A Leipzig 2-1 correct score option is at 13/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 23rd, 2018 at 3:31 pm). Celtic are currently W4 L2 in their last six games in all competitions, winning just four of their eleven fixtures on the road. They have managed to score more than one goal in just one of their last six away fixtures.

Who will win – RB Leipzig v Celtic Predictions

Leipzig are an exciting side and they like to attack. Celtic came up short against their sister club last time out and we expect more of the same. We are going with the home win & both teams to score.
