Big Game Focus: RB Leipzig v Bayern Munich


This is a do-or-die match for reigning Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich who would secure their seventh straight title with a win. RB Leipzig are having a great season and are guaranteed a top-three finish no matter what happens on Saturday. Here’s the Big Game Focus. Bet on the game here.

RB Leipzig have been excellent this season. They’ve not quite challenged for the title, but they’re on course to secure a place in the Champions League. The home side can also spoil the party for Bayern, who will secure the title with a win. Should we expect another twist and turn?

Bayern have had a poor season by their own standards. However, they can clinch their seventh straight Bundesliga title with a victory over Leipzig this weekend. Considering they were nine points behind in December, Niko Kovac’s men have produced a remarkable run of form to get to the top.

Betting preview

Bayern Munich have won seven away matches in their last ten in the league. Moreover, they’ve beaten the hosts in three of their last five meetings. Leipzig have also only beaten Bayern once at home in their last six matches. Therefore you can back an Away Win at odds of 1.65.

Four of RB Leipzig’s last five Bundesliga have seen three or more goals scored. Meanwhile, of Bayern’s last five matches, three have seen Over 2.5 Goals. So Over 2.5 Goals in this fixture at odds of 1.45 is very likely.

The home side has not kept a clean sheet in their last five meetings against Bayern. They’ve also kept just one clean sheet in their last five league matches. Bayern have kept just four away clean sheets in the Bundesliga this season. Both teams have also found the back of the net in their last five Bundesliga matches. Therefore you can back Both Teams to Score at odds of 1.50.

Team news

The hosts will be without Kevin Kampl who is suspended. Dayot Upamecano and Tyler Adams will miss out due to injury.

James Rodriguez, Javi Martinez and Manuel Neuer are doubtful for the hosts.
