Schalke take on the visitors RB Leipzig in the round 17 match of German Bundesliga. The match will be played on Tuesday, January 24th at Veltins Arena (Gelsenkirchen).
Schalke are showing absolutely nothing notbale this season. Their attacking line produce awfully small number of goals - 13 goals in 16 rounds. In defense they are not shining either - 35 goals conceded so far. The team scores the least in the league and concedes the most. And as a logical consequence - with a margin goes to last place in the table.

RB Leipzig failed the start of the championship. But gradually they picked up solid pace, began to win in almost every round and climbed up the table. Yes, Leipzig is still fifth there, but only one point separates the team from second place. Wards of Marco Rose will definitely fight for silver at least, and perhaps they will impose some kind of fight for the championship of Bayern Munich.
Even on the road in a duel against the worst Bundesliga team at the moment, Leipzig have no right to lose points. In the previous round, the "bulls" interrupted Bayern's winning streak (draw 1-1). Moreover, according to most statistical indicators, they outplayed the Munich team. In four rounds before the fight against the champion, the wards of Marco Rose won four victories, having won the previous two away league matches. What about Schalke? Schalke suffered 10 defeats in 16 rounds and was able to score points in only one of the previous ten matches of the championship. The home field factor doesn't help at all. Schalke is one of the worst teams in the league in home meetings (five defeats in eight matches at home, four defeats in five extreme ones. In the previous round, the team of Thomas Rice lost 0-3 in Frankfurt. The last three head-to-head matches against Leipzig were consistently lost big. We expect the hosting side to take over the outsider this time too.
Prediction for the match: RB Leipzig to win.
