RB Leipzig v Monaco Betting Predictions and Match Preview
RB Leipzig shocked many last season as they surged towards a Bundesliga title bid, and having finished above the likes of Borussia Dortmund they must not be taken lightly as they prepare to make their Champions League bow on Wednesday night.
Their opponents will be a Monaco side eager to follow up a spectacular 2016/17 season with an equally strong campaign, despite losing a number of key performers during the summer transfer window. The likes of Radamel Falcao and Thomas Lemar remain, however, and have started their domestic campaign well. 4 wins in 5 games with 14 goals scored is a strong foundation upon which they will be keen to build.
Away European fixtures have not been kind to Monaco in the past, however, with 3 of their last 4 outings ending in defeat. This poor record is reflected in the KickOff algorithm’s predictions, with RB Leipzig coming out as 40% favourites to take victory in the match.
8 of Monaco’s 9 most recent Champions League fixtures have ended with 3 goals or more, and given that Leipzig themselves averaged well over 2 goals per game last season it’s easy to see why an over 2.5 goals bet would be a wise one. The KickOff algorithm gives such a bet a 57% chance of coming in, making it the one of the safer bets of the evening.
