Arminia Bielefeld vs RB Leipzig Match Preview & Team News
After a surprising victory away to Bayer Leverkusen last weekend, Arminia Bielefeldescaped from the relegation zone. However, they are only one point ahead of Hertha and Mainz, and the hosts need to keep up with good displays. That victory was the first one after seven matches that Frank Kramer’s side failed to win. During that period, Arminia picked up only two points and got in big trouble. Fabian Klos and the lads need to start converting more chances into goals, as they scored just 20 times so far. On the other hand, Arminia has one of the leakiest defenses after conceding a total of 44 goals. The hosts celebrated four times at their ground during the campaign but snatched just a point on the previous four occasions. They need to give their best shot for securing survival, and every point matters in that battle.
RB Leipzig missed the chance to stay just two points behind Bayern Munich after drawing against Eintracht Frankfurt last weekend. They are now four points behind the defending champions, but still in the game for becoming the German champions for the first time. Julian Nagelsmann’s side is on a great run in the Bundesliga, failing to win just once on the previous seven occasions. Although Emil Forsberg and the lads might have been more efficient, their teammates from the back do a great job. RB Leipzig conceded only 21 goals in the high-scoring competition like Bundesliga and is the best defensive team in the league. The visitors have been excellent on the road this season, as they lost in only two outings. They booked three straight victories at the away grounds and want to keep up where they left off.
