Analysis and forecast of the round of 16 of the Champions League Leipzig – Real Madrid (02/13/2024)
The national championship matches finished at the weekend and next will be the European stadium. On February 13, the first two games of the Champions League round of 16 will be played. In one of them, local Leipzig will host Real Madrid at the Red Bull Arena. The starting whistle will sound at 23:00 Moscow time.
Nothing less than the Brazilian derby:
“Zenith” – “Saints”. Brazilians will not forgive their own Semak!
In the last six rounds of the German championship, Leipzig only beat Union, which is close to the relegation zone (2-0). They also tied with Werder (1-1) and Augsburg (2-2). The club lost to Eintracht Frankfurt (0-1), Bayer (2-3) and Stuttgart (2-5).
As a result, the “Red Bulls” fell to fifth place in the championship standings. The difference with Borussia Dortmund, fourth placed, is three points. In addition, Marco Rose’s team was eliminated from the German Cup, losing in the round of 16 against Wolfsburg (0-1).
To achieve the best possible performance in the Champions League round of 16, Leipzig recently acquired Napoli striker Elif Elmas. However, at the same time he got rid of several players. The team traded Angelino and Timo Werner and also sold Emil Forsberg to the New York Red Bulls.
Elmas this season played 21 games at club level, in which he scored only two goals. The 24-year-old forward played only five games for the Red Bulls, in which he was not effective. It seems that it will take him a long time to adapt to Marco Rose’s demands.
Radulov will not miss his goal:
Ak Bars – Neftekhimik. Radulov will bother his neighbors.
Real Madrid, in turn, lost only 2 of 34 games in all official tournaments. There are only four ties. It should also be noted that in both cases the whites lost in the derby at the Civitas Metropolitano against Atlético, who were having an excellent season (1:3 in the Spanish Championship and 2:4 in the Spanish Cup).
After defeating Girona (4:0) in the last round of the first league, Carlo Ancelotti’s team confidently took first place in the championship standings. The difference with the Catalans, who are recovering, is five points. The match between the leaders was remembered for several important events.
First, the Galacticos’ top defenders missed the game due to injuries. Despite this, throughout the match the whites allowed Girona to take only five shots and none hit the target. Secondly, the shot was designed by Jude Bellingham. He thus broke the Madrid club’s five-star performance record.
The Russian does not pay attention to the words:
Zizou Bergs – Andrei Rublev. Russian continues to evolve
In 29 games with Real, Bellingham scored 20 goals and provided eight assists. In La Liga, Jude scored 16 goals and already in his first season at the Club he surpassed the number of goals of five famous footballers: David Beckham, Michael Owen, Arjen Rabiot, Wesley Snyder and Mikael Laudrup.
Bellingham also became the first Galacticos midfielder in the 21st century to reach the 15-goal mark in a season in La Liga. Everything would be fine, but the match with Girona will be remembered by the Englishman not only because of his positive emotions. He was injured and was substituted in the 57th minute.
It is still unknown how long the footballer will need to recover. It was reported that he suffered a high-grade sprain to his left ankle. Bellingham’s injury will definitely weaken the Whites. However, Carlo Ancelotti is no stranger to a host of injuries.
Having previously experienced frequent and significant personnel losses, the Madrid team has assembled a notable roster. Other leaders, particularly Vinicius Junior, are in excellent form and getting results. We suggest betting on X2 + TM 3.5 goals for an odds of 2.16.
Only in 2 of the last 11 matches in the Spanish Championship did the Galacticos score more than three goals per game. And only once during this period did they concede more than one goal in a game. With the absence of key players, Ancelotti focuses on defensive strength. Therefore, we do not expect high results.
Prediction and bets for the Champions League match Leipzig – Real Madrid on February 13, 2024
It is evident that Leipzig is not in the best shape. He will probably be in a special mood for the Champions League, but this is unlikely to help him beat Real Madrid. Despite significant personnel losses, Los Blancos are seen as favorites. Repeatedly this season, even without leaders, they devastated everyone in their path. The logic of things involves betting on the fact that the Galacticos will not lose and on poor performance.
Tender: La Real does not lose and the total is less than 3.5 goals in 2.16.
