RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich: Predictions

Bayern Munich have been in typically devastating fashion this season and are eyeing up a ninth consecutive Meisterschale, but RB Leipzig have refused to conform to stereotype and let the Bavarian beast run away with things, instead clinging to their coattails and now capable of reducing the gap to just one point with a win here.

Hansi Flick’s men would have felt confident of seeing off a Julian Nagelsmann-inspired Leipzig, but their fortunes have hit a snag over the international break, as Robert Lewandowski sustained a knee injury while playing for Poland and is now expected to miss up to four weeks of action, a devastating blow.

Flick still has at squad bursting a the seams with elite talent, but Lewandowski was the scoring fiend breaching nets for fun and closing in on Gerd Muller’s single-season Bundesliga record of 40 goals, which does not bode well for this contest, as Die Roten Bullen boast the best defensive record in the division.

Under Nagelsmann, the Saxony-based club are enjoying their best-ever top-flight season with 57 points while, with no European distraction having exited the Champions League at the hands of Liverpool, the club will be going hell for leather to close the gap on Bayern and cause a domestic upset at the summit.

RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich: Match Stats

As mentioned Leipzig boast the best defensive record in the Bundesliga this season, conceding just 21 goals while keeping 13 clean sheets in 26 games, a shutout every other match. So without Lewandowski, Bayern could be in for a frustrating afternoon, unless Thomas Muller and Co can wreak havoc without their leading marksman, which is certainly not beyond the realms of possibility given the God-given talents of Flick’s frontline even without the Pole.

A key area Flick will look to exploit is on the bylines, with the wing-wizard duo of Serge Gnabry and Leroy Sane capable of causing fireworks on the flanks and working delectably in tandem with Bayern’s overlapping, ever-willing wing-backs. It is no mystery then that the reigning champions boss the corner metrics this season, topping the charts with 187 corners, while also averaging just over seven corners per match this season.

It was a frantic, almost tinderbox occasion when these sides met at the Allianz Arena in December, with the duo trading leather in a match that veered between chaos and creative ingenuity. But, that result was quite the anomaly in an otherwise recently subdued contest, with there being under 2.5 goals in five of their last eight matches across all competitions.
