Our football match prediction:
Leipzig are having a season to remember. The Red Bulls have been producing terrific performances on their debut in the German top flight and they are on the right track to book their place in the Champions League. However, the season is quite long and the newcomers will have to be at their sharpest in the remainder of the season if they are to make it to the elite competition. Leipzig suffered a 1-0 loss to Borussia Dortmund at Signal-Iduna-Park at the weekend, but their home record is impressive. The Red Bulls are eyeing their eighth consecutive win at home and we predict that they will defeat relegation-threatened Hamburger on Matchday 20. Die Rothosen did well to beat Bayer Leverkusen on home soil in their last league fixture, but they are on a three-game losing run on the road and we do not believe that Markus Gidsol’s men are capable of spoiling Leipzig’s party at Red Bull Arena.
