RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
After seemingly falling out of reach of defending champions Bayern, Leipzig have clawed their way back into contention, winning seven and drawing one of their last eight Bundesliga matches, including a 1-0 victory over Arminia Bielefeld prior to the international break.
Along with Leipzig’s improved form, Bayern took just one point from their first two games back from the Club World Cup, drawing 3-3 with Arminia before losing 2-1 to Eintracht Frankfurt. This has allowed Leipzig to close the gap to Hansi Flick’s men to just four points ahead of this blockbuster tie. That said, Bayern have won their last six matches across all competitions (four in the Bundesliga) since then.
The last four league meetings between these two sides have ended in a draw. Can Leipzig break that cycle to pile the pressure on Bayern, or will the defending champions effectively end the title race here?
- RB Leipzig (vs Arminia Bielefeld): Gulacsi; Klostermann, Orban, Halstenberg*; Adams, Sabitzer*, Kampl*, Haidara; Nkunku, Olmo; Forsberg.
- Bayern Munich (vs Stuttgart): Neuer; Pavard, Boateng, Sule*, Davies*; Goretzka, Alaba; Sane, Muller, Gnabry; Lewandowski*.
Dayot Upamecano was ruled out for around two weeks prior to Leipzig’s win over Arminia, so will remain doubtful here, as will Marcel Halstenberg, Angeliño, Marcel Sabitzer and Konrad Laimer. Dominik Szoboszlai is injured, while Kevin Kampl will serve a one-game suspension.
Robert Lewandowski has been ruled out for around four weeks after injuring the ligaments in his right knee while Alphonso Davies is suspended following his red card against Stuttgart. Jerome Boateng is also suspended for one game due to yellow card accumulation, joining Corentin Tolisso and Douglas Costa on the sidelines.

Players to watch:
- RB Leipzig: The goalscoring load has been shared around Nagelsmann’s squad so far this season, with three players tied on six strikes as Leipzig’s top goalscorers. But when it comes to creation, one man has stood above all the rest: Dani Olmo. The Spain international has notched eight assists in the Bundesliga so far this season, at least double any other Leipzig player. And while Olmo is third among his teammates for chances created (36), he is top of the pile when it comes to expected assists from open play per 90 minutes (0.27), proving he is largely providing high-quality chances, rather than slinging aimless balls into the box. With the likes of Sabitzer and Laimer potentially sidelined for this weekend’s crunch match, Olmo’s creative spark will play a key role in unlocking Bayern Munich’s defence.
- Bayern Munich: Lewandowski has scored an immense 35 Bundesliga goals this season, at least 25 more than any other Bayern player. With the Poland international now sidelined for this crucial tie, serious pressure will be put upon Thomas Muller to step up in the final third. With 10 goals, Muller is the only other player in Flick’s squad to hit double figures for goals in the Bundesliga so far, while his 14 assists leave him at least four clear of any other Bayern player. The problem, of course, is that half of those assists have been for Lewandowski. So, can Muller find a new target for his playmaking genius? Or can he be the one to turn the ball home himself? It’s hard to see Bayern winning here if he can’t do either of those.
