RB Leipzig – Die Rotten Bullen with a new-found taste for silverware?

Capturing last season’s DFB Pokal, defeating Freiburg on penalties, wrapped up a season of two halves for Die Rotten Bullen, who toiled until the difficult decision was made to replace Jesse Marsch with Domenico Tedesco in December. It would prove an unequivocal masterstroke. The former Schalke boss steadying the ship and then some, securing the club both Champions League football and their first major silverware.

Indeed, so improved were they that from January onwards Bayern Munich trailed in their wake. RB Leipzig’s 36 points across the final 17 rounds (W11 D3 L3) were two more than that of Julian Nagelsmann’s title-winning charges. That form alone has to give them outstanding claims of becoming only the third side to claim Super Cup spoils at the first attempt, with this their maiden run-out in this fabled fixture.

Key Stat: Although they finished the 2021-22 season in excellent form, it was here at Red Bull Arena – Saturday’s venue for this Super Cup showdown – where results tailed off, with RB Leipzig winning only two of their final five Bundesliga home outings (D2 L1).


Both Teams To Score 2 Or More



Bayern Munich – Germany’s best to yet again begin on winning note?

A record tenth consecutive top-flight title last term means a tenth consecutive stab at adding to their impressive haul of German Super Cups, which currently stands at eight ahead of Saturday’s duel with RB Leipzig. Bayern would win five of the last six renewals of this fixture, last seen losing to Borussia Dortmund in 2019. They’ll be keen to begin the new term in contrasting fashion to how they finished the last, though.

Despite romping to another league championship, Germany’s record men’s champions eased across the line in the end – conceding at least twice as they went winless through the concluding three rounds (D2 L1). It has also been a summer of change in Bavaria; the prolific Lewandowski has moved on, with Sadio Mane coming in the other direction. So, can the Senegalese star hit the ground running for his new club?

Key Stat: Bayern Munich would scored two or more in five of the past six German Super Cups but haven’t managed a clean sheet in any of the previous three.

Fourth against first in the Bundesliga last season. Christopher Nkunku rivalling Sadio Mane as two of the game’s outstanding forward talents kick-start a fledgling rivalry. Red Bull Arena providing the backdrop to a potential maiden Super Cup triumph for RB Leipzig. Or simply more of the same, with Bayern targeting their sixth Super Cup in the past seven editions. There are so many fascinating subplots to this clash.


RB Leipzig Vs Bayern Munich – Key Facts:

  • No fewer than 19 points separated the sides upon the completion of the 2021-22 Bundesliga season, as Bayern Munich claimed their 10th consecutive league title ahead of fourth-placed RB Leipzig.
  • Solace for RB Leipzig came in the shape of DFB Pokal Final success, edging out Freiburg in a penalty shootout to secure the first piece of major silverware in the club’s history.
  • Bayern Munich won home and away vs RB Leipzig last term, meaning they have won three successive meetings having been winless across the pair’s three previous encounters (all draws). All but one of their four recent meetings saw Over 3.5 Goals.


On the betting front, I am keen to get behind a high scoring encounter. Neither has shaped as though they are watertight defensively coming into the season – RB Leipzig shipped six across two pre-season friendlies, Bayern three from the same number of games with neither keeping a clean sheet. Moreover, four of the past five German Super Cups would produce a minimum of four strikes.
