RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 14 September 2019
Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Red Bull Arena (Leipzig).
RB Leipzig have got off to a stellar start in the league and are the only team in the table to secure maximum points from their opening three games. The hosts pulled off a comfortable 3-1 win over Monchengladbach in their last outing, while at home they did just enough to post a 2-1 scoreline over Frankfurt.
The reigning champions have recovered from the shock draw that they were held to in their opener against Hertha Berlin and have since gone on to win their last two games, that too by very convincing margins.
The visitors took out Mainz by a 6-1 scorecard at the Allianz Arena in their most recent clash, prior to which they thrashed Schalke on the road with three unanswered goals to their name.
Neither side are likely to settle for anything less than a win as the potential three points would put clear daylight between two in the table for the time being. So, expect nothing short of an exciting clash when the two heavyweights lock horns with each other this weekend.
RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich Head to head (h2h)
- Bayern Munich have come out on top in five of their last eight meetings.

- Only two of their last five clashes have ended in a draw.
- Half of their previous eight matchups have seen goals down each end.
RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich Prediction
The hosts have been a formidable side no doubt since the start of the season and have found the back of the net nine times from their three games so far. However, the squad are up against a team that has been a force to reckon with in their recent games, especially with the addition of Perisic and Coutinho to their attacking line-up.
The away side have already hit double digits in terms of the goals tally and are showing no signs of slowing down either. Furthermore, Leipzig have managed to get the better of this opponent just once in their last five clashes here.
Taking into account the run of form that the two teams are on at the moment, a tight run of affairs is definitely in the reckoning, with Bayern likely to edge it past their foes by no more than a slender margin.
Additionally, Leipzig and Bayern are currently the two best offensive sides in the league. Considering three of their last five fixtures here have also seen neither team keep a clean sheet, you can certainly count on both the teams to get their names on the scoresheet.
Lewandowski has found the back of the net in each of Bayern’s games so far. Brave punters could even opt to back the Polish forward to score anytime in this one as well.
