RB Leipzig News and Form – Can Leipzig beat Bayern?

RB Leipzig are leading the way at the head of the Bundesliga table going into the next round of action. They have come out strongly and have been firing off goals for fun. They are averaging exactly three goals per fixture this season. So what that suggests is that this is going to be a good, high scoring affair when they play host to reigning champions Bayern. Timo Werner has scored five of their nine league goals this season.

This will be just their second home fixture of the new campaign, Leipzig winning their previous one 2-1 against Frankfurt. It would be some great early confidence for them if they could open up a five-point lead over Bayern. Last season they had another strong home campaign in the top flight. Following their win over Frankfurt in their home opener this season, it is a 19 match undefeated streak of home form that Leipzig are on in the Bundesliga. They have picked up a clean sheet in five of their last eight Bundesliga home fixtures.

Bayern Munich News and Form – Will Bayern extend winning streak?

Bayern looked a bit out of sorts on the opening weekend of the new season, struggling to pick up a 2-2 draw at home against Hertha Berlin. But they clicked into gear by following up with big successes over Schalke and Mainz. Bayern Munich are up to eleven goals already for this campaign. Scoring more than half of those goals is Robert Lewandowski whose tally is already at six. Two of those have been from the penalty spot.

Bayern got a strong challenge from RB Leipzig when they were to visit back in May. They played out a 0-0 draw. In 2019, Bayern have played 19 Bundesliga fixtures and they have won fifteen of them (D3 L1). That’s some form. That having been said though their away form wasn’t great at the back end of last season. They are W2 D3 in their last five road games, a sequence which includes their draw at Leipzig. Can they bag three points to move to potentially move to the top of the table?
