RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich
German – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 3 April 2021
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Red Bull Arena (Leipzig).
RB Leipzig is trailing by four points to the visitor, and another three points in the next clash will improve their chance for their maiden Bundesliga title. However, the host will come into the game as outsiders with their overall form and squad strength.
But they are unbeaten in the last eight league matches and will return home after a 0-1 win on the road against Bielefeld last time out in the campaign.
Bayern Munich is obviously the favorites to win, and the team is in a good shape with their Champions League fixtures ahead in the next week.
However, their star striker Lewandowski will miss the game due to injury. Since the Bavarians have kept an unbeaten run without the Polish forward in previous fixtures, count on Hans Flick’s men to take something out of the game.

RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich Prediction
There is no doubt that the match is sizing to be a high-scoring affair in full-time. Leipzig has an unbeaten run in the league and playing at home yields them the ground advantage. Besides, they are one of the few sides in Bundesliga that actually gives a challenge to the Bavarians.
With the host enjoying a good start in recent clashes, expect them to slot in early goal by taking advantage of the visitor’s injury-prone squad. Lewandowski’s absence will make it hard for Bayern Munich to bounce back in the game, but it is not impossible.
The Bavarians still have the skills to turn the tables with the likes of Muller, Gnabry, Sane, and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting in the middle. So, the combined tip for over 2.5 goals and BTTS will probably come in handy to yield decent returns.
Besides, the double chance favoring Bayern Munich will probably be the best bet for the punters regarding their current form in the campaign.
