The derby match to determine the top placed team in the first part of the season in Bundesliga is set to kick off on Wednesday evening at Allianz Arena where Bayern Munich will host RB Leipzig. The two sides are currently leveled at the top of the standings being nine points clear ahead of the third placed Hoffenheim and Hertha BSC. The Bavarians are entering the match in a somewhat better mood winning five games in a row in all competitions.
Carlo Ancelotti’s men were especially impressive at Allianz Arena where they are yet to be defeated this season in all competitions which significantly reduced the value of generally sky high odds on The Bulls to win the match (13/2). Bayern Munich managed to find the right shape at the back since Manuel Neuer kept three clean sheets in a row against Atletico Madrid, Wolfsburg and Darmstadt.
RB Leipzig, on the other side, ended their amazing streak of eight consecutive victories in the last away match when they shockingly failed to find the net against Ingolstadt, who are one of the weakest teams in the competition. Just when everyone thought that Leipzig’s reign came to an end because they have had a pretty tough home fixture against Hertha BSC last weekend, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men came out with a marvellous performance winning comfortably with 2-0; thanks to goals from Timo Werner and Willi Orban.
Bayern Munich vs RB Leipzig: Head-to-Head Stats
This will be the first ever head to head match between the two sides since RB Leipzig earned the promotion to the top flight of German football for the first time in their short history (the team was founded in 2009).
Bayern Munich vs RB Leipzig: Prediction
We can’t see a low scoring game here because both teams are so powerful up front with two of the best strikers in the competition at the moment. Robert Lewandowski scored 11 goals so far for the Bavarians, while Timo Werner scored his ninth goal of the campaign last weekend.
