RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 18 March 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Red Bull Arena (Leipzig).
The Matchday will be completed with the derby between RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich on Sunday afternoon at Red Bull Arena. The Bulls will be looking to arrest the current slump in form and return on the winning ways after clinching just two points in last four league outings.
Nonetheless, getting the result against the reigning champions and runaway leaders will be almost an impossible task for the team led by Ralph Hasenhuttl. The Bavarians do not have a true competitor in their domestic league and they are as many as 20 points clear at the very top of the standings. Jupp Heynckes’ men will travel to Leipzig off the back of 19 wins and a draw in last 20 matches in all competitions. The Bavarian giants have picked up another victory in the reverse fixture of their Champions League tie with Turkish champions Besiktas to make it 8-1 on aggregate.
Robert Lewandowski is expected to make the starting lineup here after skipping the trip to Istanbul. The league’s top scorer has taken his tally to 23 goals by completing a hat-trick in the 6-0 thumping of Hamburger SV last Saturday. Lewa is our top pick for the anytime goalscorer market here.
Leipzig will also come into the game with an improved confidence after securing the quarterfinal of Europa League as they held on to a 1-1 draw away at Zenit on Thursday evening (3-2 in aggregate). Nonetheless, the Bulls have only claimed a single point in last two home matches in Bundesliga conceding three goals to Koln and Borussia Dortmund.
