Round 29 of the 2022-23 German Bundesliga brings the highly-anticipated clash between the Black and Reds and Red Bulls, so we have prepared the best Bayer Leverkusen vs. RB Leipzig betting pick along with the latest odds update. 

Bayer Leverkusen – RB Leipzig Betting Tip, Prediction & Odds (23.4.2023)

The stakes are huge in this match, so we are expecting a great battle between Bayer Leverkusen and Leipzig. The hosts are still alive in the Champions League qualification race, but they desperately need a win over the Red Bulls to keep pace. 

Bayer Leverkusen vs. RB Leipzig: Initial Situation  

Bayer Leverkusen are sixth in the Bundesliga with 44 points (W13, D5, L10) and a 51:41 goal difference. The Black and Reds are seven points behind the Red Bulls (W15, D6, L7; 53:35 GD), who occupy the fourth spot and are just one point ahead of Freiburg. The top four teams will qualify for the Champions League. 

Bayer Leverkusen Stats & Form 

The Black and Reds will visit Royale Union SG for the second leg of the UEFA Europa League quarterfinal on Thursday night, and this match has been excluded from the analysis. Bayer Leverkusen are undefeated in 11 consecutive showings in all competitions, recording eight wins and three losses in that span. In their previous seven Bundesliga matches, the Red and Blacks have posted five wins, a couple of stalemates, and a 16:6 goal difference. 

Winger Moussa Diaby leads the way for Leverkusen with 13 goals and nine assists in 2022-23. Right-back Jeremie Frimpong has eight goals and nine assists on his season tally, while forwards Amine Adli and Adam Hlozek have bagged five goals apiece thus far. The Black and Reds cannot count on striker Patrik Schick (four goals), and midfielder Exequiel Palacios (four goals and two assists) is doubtful to play against RB Leipzig.

RB Leipzig Stats & Form

The Red Bulls are riding a three-game winning streak. After beating Borussia Dortmund 2-0 in the DFB Pokal quarterfinal, the Red Bulls have won two straight Bundesliga matches over Hertha 1-0 on the road and Augsburg 3-2 at home. In their previous six outings away from home in all competitions, RB Leipzig have registered two wins, three losses, a draw, and a 5:10 goal difference. 

Timo Werner bagged a couple of goals against Augsburg last weekend, and the 27-year-old forward now has 16 goals and six assists on his season tally. Forward Christopher Nkunku is still the team’s top scorer with 17 goals, while midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai has accounted for five goals and 13 dishes.

Bayer Leverkusen – RB Leipzig: Head-to-Head

The Red Bulls have recorded five wins, three draws, and one defeat in their last nine encounters with the Black and Reds dating back to the 2018-19 season. Back in October 2022, RB Leipzig beat Bayer Leverkusen 2-0 as 1.60 home favorites, and both Nkunku and Werner found the back of the net. 

Bayer Leverkusen – RB Leipzig Odds

The odds pretty much tell the story, as the bookmakers are looking for a tight battle that could easily go three-way. On paper, the Red Bulls are a better team than Bayer, but the Black and Reds have been unstoppable as of late. We should see a few goals in this clash, and Both Teams to Score YES pays 1.63 at Unibet Sportsbook


Betting tip and prediction: Bayer Leverkusen – RB Leipzig (23.4.2023)

The hosts will have to deal with fatigue, coming off Thursday’s clash in the Europa League, whereas RB Leipzig have the entire week to prepare for this match. I lean toward the Red Bulls, but taking Both Teams to Score YES still looks like a way to go. Bayer Leverkusen have conceded in each but one of their last eight outings in front of the home crowd. Only Bayern and Dortmund have scored more goals than Leverkusen and RB Leipzig so far this season.
