RB Leipzig v Bayern Munich Betting Preview – Bundesliga 18th March 5.00pm

Bayern Munich are simply storming their way to the Bundesliga title holding a 20 point advantage over second-placed Schalke heading into the weekend. It’s remarkable stuff that they have produced and RB Leipzig probably aren’t going to be looking forward to this one as they have fallen out of form, having gone without a win in any of their last four in the German top flight.

RB Leipzig v Bayern Munich Betting Tips

Leipzig battled their way through to the quarter finals of the Europa League in midweek, which means that they have had a day’s less rest than Bayern going into this one. They are winless in their last four Bundesliga fixtures (D2 L2) and that includes a home defeat against bottom side Koln. Their home form for the season is pretty solid at W7 D4 L2 but they have produced an inconsistent W2 D2 L2 in their last six on home soil. They are averaging almost two goals per game at home, having scored in each of their last thirteen so this is probably going to end up being a high scoring game. Over 3.5 goals at bet365 is at 6/4 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 11:13 p.m. on March 16th, 2018). There’s a decent trend as almost 40% of their home games have gone above the goal line this season. Both teams have scored in 77% of their home fixtures as well. Their top scorer is Timo Werner who could be a star at the summer’s World Cup.

Bayern Munich have won their last seven games away from home in the Bundesliga and it has been all too easy for them. They have scored at least two goals in each of their last four on the road. Overall, since losing at Moenchengladbach back in November, Bayern’s form in the Bundesliga home and away combined reads W12 D1. How do you stand up to that? They are W10 D1 L2 on their travels but they are averaging almost two goals per game and defensively have only shipped the nine goals away from the Allianz Arena. Bayern have netted in each of their last eleven road games and have taken a clean sheet in over half of their away games. It is hard for anyone to touch them and Robert Lewandowski has tallied 23 goals for the season, although seventeen of those have been at home. In the bet365 correct score market a Bayern Munich 2-1 result is at 7/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 11:13 p.m. on March 16th, 2018). Bayern Munich have scored in 92% of their away matches and are likely to get themselves on the board in this one as well as the three points to take them closer to the title.

In the three Bundesliga contests, Bayern have scored ten goals with two clean sheets in them.

RB Leipzig v Bayern Munich Predictions

It’s a procession for Bayern Munich at times and with their away form going on that they have, it’s hard not to back them for a win in this one. Leipzig are a decent enough home side though so back an away win and both teams to score.
