Bayern Munich vs RB Leipzig
Date: Wednesday, 19 December 2018
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: Allianz Arena (Munich).
Both Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig enjoyed fabulous attacking displays in their respective weekend fixtures. The Bavarians made it three league wins on the trot by bagging four goals without any response against Hannover on Saturday afternoon away at HDI-Arena. Joshua Kimmich, David Alaba, Serge Gnabry and Robert Lewandowski were all on target in a commanding victory for Niko Kovac’s troops.
Der FCB are still nine points shy of leaders Borussia Dortmund after an underwhelming kick off to the season. They need to keep the winning thread going if they are to stay in the title race before the winter break. Kovac can be satisfied with his team’s attacking form in recent outings as Bayern notched three or more goals on four occasions in past five games in all competitions. They secured the top of the group in Champions League after fighting it out to a 3-3 draw in a six-goal thriller against Ajax last week.
Bayern Munich vs RB Leipzig: Head-to-head
- Bayern Munich won four of five head to head games with Leipzig.
- Nevertheless, the Bulls’ lone victory came just in the previous head to head encounter between the two sides (2-1 in March this year at Red Bull Arena).
- Three of last four H2H outings saw goals scored at both ends.
Bayern Munich vs RB Leipzig: Prediction
Yussuf Poulsen and Timo Werner notched a brace each to guide Ralf Rangnick’s side to a statement 4-1 victory over Mainz on Sunday. The Bulls thus kept ground on Bayern Munich who are just two points away in third place and an upset here at Allianz Arena would see them overtake the Bavarians in the league ladder.
However, there is not much suggesting such outcome given Leipzig’s dreadful away form in recent outings. The Bulls lost four in a row away from Red Bull Arena without scoring a single goal in last three away games.
We thus have to see in-form Bayern Munich as clear favourites and we’ll back them to dominate from the get go.
