LEP vs RS Dream11 Prediction for RB Leipzig vs Real Sociedad Europa League Live Score Fantasy Football Tips & Dream11 Team

Share

LEP vs RS Dream11: RB Leipzig’s 3-1 win over Cologne over the weekend was a welcome return to form for Domenico Tedesco’s team. Tedesco’s excellent start came to a stop with a 3-2 setback away to Bayern Munich the weekend before, but the hosts appear capable of fighting for a place in the top four in the second half of the season. They now face Real Sociedad, who have been far too low-scoring in La Liga to mount a real top-four threat, but Imanol Aguacil’s side do come into this off the back of a 2-0 win over Granada, putting them on the verge of qualifying for the UEFA Champions League. Leipzig will be the favourites, especially because they have home advantage.

Expected Changes and Strategy:

  • Igor Zubeldia has returned from suspension after missing the weekend win against Granada, but he is unlikely to start this game.
