Leipzig vs Celtic Betting Tips
On Saturday, October 20, Leipzig extended to six (four wins and two evenings) their unbeaten run of games by going 0-0 with Augsburg at home to the German champions in the eighth round. With 15 points (four wins, three draws and one loss), he is in fifth place. The difference for Borussia Dortmund, leader, is five points.
The team led by Austrian Ralph Hassenhuttl shows a clear evolution after a turbulent start of the season. One of the reasons – perhaps the most important – for this was certainly the emptying of the medical department. For the confrontation this Thursday, the coach has all his athletes available. There are no bruises or suspensions.
Important as the schedule gets tighter, as in addition to the clashes of the Bundesliga and the Europa League will be added eliminatory clash for the German Cup. Leipzig will face Hoffenheim on 31 October.
Celtic also had a bad start to the season. It failed to overcome the qualifiers for the Champions League and was behind in the dispute of the Scottish Championship. He had no way to recover from the continental tournament, but in the local fray he showed his reaction power. On Saturday, October 20, at home, he scored 4-2 at Hibernian.It was his third straight victory. The seed reached the bottom of 19 points (six wins, one draw and two losses), moved up to second place and reduced its handicap to three points as Hearts, who had six points in the same period.
Coach Brendan Rogers is also gaining more scaling options with fewer athletes attending the medical department. The infirmary, however, is not entirely empty. Defenders Kristroffer Ajer (four games in the 2018/2019 Scottish Championship without a goal) and Marvin Compper (still without performances) are still in treatment and should not be available for the confrontation on Thursday.
