[German Bundesliga] RB Leipzig VS Schalke 04 14.1 [Copy Link]

RB Leipzig: Five winless competitive games ( Recent Form: L D D L W )
Before the season, it seemed as if RB Leipzig could bring nothing from the concept. The newly promoted player from two years ago played an outstanding debut season in the Bundesliga and was fully deserved runner-up. Due to the personnel and financial possibilities, the multiple burden in league, cup and Champions League was considered no problem and yet it made in the last games before the winter break 17/18 the appearance, as the team of Ralph Hasenhüttl run out of air a bit. Unlike the four consecutive encounters in which RB could not leave the place as a winner, not to explain. Only the Leipzig collected at TSG Hoffenheim a bitter 0: 4 clap, then you had to be both at home against Mainz (2: 2) as well as in Wolfsburg (1: 1) satisfied with a disappointing point, before the 17th matchday the 2: 3 home defeat against Hertha BSC the sporty descent touched the crown. Ten goals conceded in four games were an unusually high number for the Saxons, having had to concede only 15 goals in the first 13 matches of the current season. For that reason, those responsible for Coach Hasenhüttl and Head of Sport Rangnick were certainly not angry that the upstart now had three weeks to regenerate, to find himself new and fully attack in the second half. As fifth in the table, the Leipzigers are certainly a little behind their own expectations, with the gap to runner-up Schalke 04 being just two points. With a home win on Saturday night against the direct competitor, the "Red Bulls" could land a real big-point.

Schalke: Three draws on the road ( Recent Form: D W D W W )
Schalke 04 has not been reported in the media in such a positive way as this winter break. While in the past it would probably have neglected why an ambitious club such as S04 committed in the winter break in a second division club 1.FC Nuremberg disgraced offensive player or a substitute from Juventus, Royal Blue is these days for these two transfers and for The fixed change of Mark Uth in the summer literally celebrated. The reason has a name: Domenico Tedesco. The young coach credibly assures that he has a clear game idea and does everything to implement it in Gelsenkirchen too. Both Marko Pjaca of Juventus and Cedric Teuchert of Nuremberg were almost enthusiastic about the personal discussions with the football teacher, who once completed the course as best in class, and were therefore quick to want to become part of the new FC Schalke 04. The fact that the currently best German top scorer in the Bundesliga (together with Kevin Volland), Mark Uth sees his future not in the TSG Hoffenheim, but in the Ruhr, proves the external impact of the German-Italian head coach on potential newcomers. Sporty Tedesco has ensured in the first round that the euphoria in Gelsenkirchen has returned. Schalke is in excellent second place after 17 matchdays. Even though 30 points were enough for the first time in the age of the three-point rule, the first half-series must of course be considered a success that would not have been credited to the Royal Blues in the summer. Since eleven Bundesliga games S04 is unbeaten (five wins, six draws). The squires had no longer show a longer series during a season for eleven years. To make sure that this "run" could possibly be extended by a few matches, the whole second of the table in the Spanish Benidorm prepared for the second half of the season.

After all, while the first top match of the 18th matchday in the Bundesliga will take place on Friday evening between Bayern and Leverkusen, the second top match on Saturday evening between RB Leipzig and Schalke 04. The Schalke are currently ranked in second place and have two points ahead the Leipzigers, who are in fifth position. The Royal Blues are unbeaten in eleven Bundesliga games (five wins, six draws) and are thus certainly among the positive surprises of the first round. RB, meanwhile, did not win in four consecutive matches in the league before the winter break and was therefore not angry that the pointers are set to zero with the winter break.
