Bundesliga Matchday 2 Betting Tips – RB Leipzig
After ending the previous season on a high note, RB Leipzig delivered a pretty tame performance in the opening game of the new campaign.
Therefore Domenico Tedesco might consider making a host of changes with the wealth of options at his disposal. Péter Gulácsi will start in goal but Marcel Halstenberg is on the treatment table so Josko Gvardiol is certain to start in the 3-man central-defensive partnership with Willi Orbán and Mohamed Simakan despite the transfer rumours surrounding the Croatian international.
Angeliño left the club on a loan-deal which made David Raum the first-choice in the left wing-back role with Benjamin Heinrichs on the right-side. Konrad Laimer could come in to form the central-midfield pairing with Kevin Kampl while Dominik Szoboszalai might take the no. 10 position. Earlier this week, Leipzig brought Timo Werner back to the club but André Silva and Christopher Nkunku should remain the strike-pair for this match.

Bundesliga Matchday 2 Betting Tips – 1.FC Köln
With the addition of European football this season, Köln has been quite active in the transfer-market and it looks to be money well-spent at the moment.
Steffen Baumgart named a much altered line-up for the opening fixture in comparison with last season and the new signings seems to have adjusted well to the surroundings. Marvin Schwäbe will start in goal with the new arrivals Julian Chabot and Luca Killian as the brand-new centre-back pairing. Köln skipper Jonas Hector takes his regular spot on the left-side of the defence with Benno Schmitz on the left-flank.
Ellyes Skhiri will be the anchorman of the team with Dejan Ljubicic operating in a box-to-box role from central midfield. Florian Kainz is likely to start on the left-wing of the midfield while Jan Thielmann could be deployed on the right. Last season’s top-scorer Anthony Modeste has recently departed the club for Borussia Dortmund therefore the two new signings Florian Dietz and Sargis Adamyan could form the strike-pair up front.
