On January 20, RB Leipzig and Bayer 04 Leverkusen will square off at the Red Bull Arena stadium in Leipzig, Germany.
Leipzig failed to start the New Year in a winning manner, losing 1-0 at home to Eintracht Frankfurt, after finishing 2023 with 4 wins and a draw across all competitions. Ansgar Knauff’s game-winning goal, which came from Frankfurt’s lone on-target attempt in the 7th minute, consigned Die Roten Bullen to their 4th league defeat of the season even though they had 26 shots on goal more than their rivals. Marco Rose’s team, now in 4th position in the table and 12 points behind Bundesliga leaders Leverkusen at the midway point, has surrendered 4 points in their last 2 games. Leipzig is looking to prevent losing back-to-back home league games for the very 1st time since April 2018, when they lost two times under former manager Ralph Hasenhuttl, including a crushing 4-1 loss to Leverkusen. Leipzig’s 12-game unbeaten home run was snapped by Frankfurt last time out.
With an undefeated 14-2-0 record, Bayer Leverkusen has unexpectedly surged to the top of the league standings, flourishing under manager Xabi Alonso’s tutelage. The only team in Europe’s top 5 leagues that has not lost in any tournament is the squad that placed 6th in the previous season. Right now, Leverkusen is playing well on both sides of the ball. Their offense is scoring 2.76 goals on average each league game, while their defense, with 12 goals surrendered (0.71 average per game), leads the German first division. Despite having a co-league-high 8 league clean sheets thus far this season, Leipzig will undoubtedly put them to the test in front of their home supporters. After their return from winter break, Leverkusen defeated Augsburg 1-0 on the road. The team had now defeated its opponents by a combined score of 13-1 for the 4th time in a row.
