In RB Leipzig’s last ten Champions League home games, both teams have found the back of the net. Real Madrid, on their part, have kept their unbeaten streak alive in their last 27 matches, clinching victory in 21 of those encounters. Notably, in their group stage away games, Real Madrid secured wins in all three, with both teams scoring in each match.
Real Madrid enters the first leg of the last-16 Champions League tie in formidable form, having won all their group matches and leading La Liga by five points, underscored by a resounding 4-0 victory over their closest league rivals Girona this past Saturday.
As they prepare to face RB Leipzig in Germany, Madrid’s confidence will be sky-high, especially considering Leipzig’s recent form, which includes a draw against Augsburg, a team languishing in the lower half of the Bundesliga table. Leipzig’s recent lacklustre performance, where they were outplayed by a team 14 points their junior, suggests they might struggle against a Madrid side showcasing its strength, particularly with Vinicius Junior, who shone with a goal and two assists against Girona.
Despite Leipzig’s uneven form, they pose a credible threat to score, drawing on their record of both teams scoring in their last ten Champions League home matches. Their offensive prowess was on display when they scored three goals across two games against Manchester City in the group stages.
With Madrid’s away games in the group stage featuring goals from both sides and considering their defensive lapses on the road this season, a bet on Madrid to win with goals from both teams in Leipzig offers a compelling proposition for Tuesday’s match.
