RB Leipzig v Bayern Munich

BETTING & MATCH PREVIEW

In one of the games of the weekend in the Bundesliga, RB Leipzig host Bayern Munich at the Red Bull Arena on Saturday evening.

RB Leipzig has started the latest Bundesliga campaign with a hundred percent record, seeing off Union Berlin, Eintracht Frankfurt and last time out Borussia Monchengladbach. Julian Nagelsmann’s team have also scored at least two goals in all three of their victories this season.

The home side has been difficult to beat of late, losing just once in 19 games in the German top-flight. However, they have lost four of the last six meetings in all competitions with Bayern Munich.

RB Leipzig is unbeaten in eight home games in the Bundesliga, winning four of their last five. They have also been prolific on home soil of late, scoring at least two goals in each of those four recent home wins.

Bayern Munich will see this clash as a major test of character. The Bavarians have picked seven points from their first three Bundesliga matches, last time out hammering Mainz 6-1 at the Allianz Arena. The victory means that the visitors are unbeaten in 17 Bundesliga games dating back to February.

The champions have been prolific of late scoring at least two goals in their last four matches in the German top-flight. In fact, Leipzig is the only team to keep a clean sheet against Bayern in 30 Bundesliga matches.

The Bavarians are unbeaten in seven away games in the German top-flight, although three of their last five matches have finished in draws.

TEAM NEWS

RB Leipzig look set to be without young Austrian midfielder Hannes Wolf and USA international Tyler Adams both due to injury.

Bayern has no reported injuries so can head into this testing clash with a full complement of players.

Match Prediction

This is RB Leipzig’s chance to prove they can compete with the best in the Bundesliga. I believe they very well may take it and record a narrow victory in a high-scoring clash.
