RB Leipzig vs Schalke Prediction: Bundesliga Match | 27.05.2023
RB Leipzig’s place in next season’s Champions League has already been assured. That means the pressure coming into the final weekend of the season will be on the visitors, who must claim victory to avoid automatic relegation.
The pressure in the Bundesliga in this final match of the season will be on Schalke, who must claim maximum points if they are to fight off relegation. They come into this testing final game of the season sitting 17th and are the only team in the bottom two that could yet avoid relegation this term. Schalke comes into this match in an interesting form, as they have registered two wins from their last four, and they have lost just once over that period.
A draw may also be enough to give them a second chance at survival, as they have an advantage in terms of goal difference over Bochum, but that’s not the case when it comes to Stuttgart or Augsburg. Schalke comes into this match after netting a late equalizer in their previous match against Eintracht Frankfurt.
RB Leipzig’s mission for the season has already been achieved, as they have already secured their spot in next season’s Champions League. The German giants will finish third in the overall standings this term, but they come into this final match as the in-form side in the German top flight.
They have won each of their previous four matches, which included a famous 3-1 win over Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena last weekend. Despite going 1-0 down, they battled back excellently to score three times in the final half an hour. Konrad Laimer and Christopher Nkunku were among the scorers in the win.
