Leipzig vs Schalke 04: Storylines
Leipzig finished on an all-time record third place in the 2019-20 season and qualified for the Champions League group stage. They started their new Bundesliga season well with a 3-1 win over Mainz and a 1-1 draw vs Bayer Leverkusen.
Last term, Schalke 04 ended in 12th place with 39 total points, 8 points above the relegation zone. The Royal Blues didn't get off to a great beginning of the new season, as they have been winless so far. Bayern Munich trashed them 8-0 in Round 1 and they lost to Werder Bremen in the second round. Thus, the club sacked David Wagner and appointed Manuel Baum as their new head coach.
An interesting fact is that these opponents don't have a long history of clashes but they always manage to entertain. Both clubs have scored an overall of 21 goals altogether in the 8 games so far. Thanks to this exciting clash, we will see who gets to go home with the three points.
