Leipzig host Bayern Munich at the Red Bull Arena on Saturday afternoon, kicking off at 3:30pm local time in Germany. This key Bundesliga clash could see Bayern Munich crown champions if they are to get the victory, which won’t be easy as Leipzig have lost only once at home all season.

Home Team: RB Leipzig

Leipzig have been fantastic all the season, and only find themselves 9 points behind Bayern Munich in the table in 3rd place. If they were to win this clash, then they could finish the season just 6 points behind the champions which shows how far they have come as they were 31 points inferior last season.

German international Timo Werner, and Danish international Yussuf Poulsen have both been vital players for the side, with both of them contributing to over 40 goals in the Bundesliga this season. Leipzig have won eight of the last nine fixtures and haven’t lost a competitive match since January.

They’ve also been on a fantastic run in the German Cup, as they have reached the final. Their opponents? Of course, Bayern Munich. They would prefer to win that cup final of course, but there will be an incentive to win this match to prevent Bayern Munich from celebrating the championship on Leipzig’s turf.

Away Team: Bayern Munich

After a sluggish start to the season, Bayern Munich are now homing in on a domestic double in Germany. Their Champions League campaign will be considered a disappointment, but if Niko Kovac was to accomplish a double in his first season, then it would get marked down as a success.

There is still some work to be done though, and Leipzig will be in the way of both of their trophy paths – in the league this Saturday, and the German Cup final in a few weeks. Bayern Munich managed to relegate Hannover 96 in their last fixture with a resounding 3-1 victory, and compiled with Dortmund dropping points, the title is just three points away from being secured.

It was announced earlier this week that Frank Ribery will leave Bayern Munich at the end of the season, so he may be given an away substitute performance, and how fitting would it be if he was to get a goal to help Bayern Munich clinch the Bundesliga title?

Head to Head

The teams have met 5 times in the Bundesliga, with Bayern Munich winning on four occasions, and Leipzig getting one victory. That victory came in this respective fixture last season in a 2-1 victory, although Bayern Munich were almost crowned champions at the time.

In other fixtures, Bayern Munich have come out on top including an infamous 5-4 victory at Leipzig in the 2016/2017 season with Arjen Robben scoring a last minute winner in a pulsating game from start to finish. In the reverse fixture this season, Bayern narrowly beat Leipzig with Frank Ribery scoring a late goal in a 1-0 success.

Predictions and Betting Tips

Leipzig are at 7/2 to stop the championship party for their visitors, with Bayern Munich at 7/10. For the sides to cancel each other out, that is priced at 3/1. Despite Leipzig’s impressive form, I expect Bayern Munich to win the title in style on Saturday, and claim a victory here at an imposing away ground.

My score line prediction is a 2-0 away win at 9/1. For goal scorers, I’d back both Robert Lewandowski and Serge Gnabry to score at 9/1. To boost odds further on a Bayern Munich victory, you can back them to win to nil at 12/5 or even win both halves at 3/1.

Finally, if you want to back the hosts, who have been impressive particularly at home, then it would be wise to back their defence, who have only conceded 9 goals at home all season – for them to keep a clean sheet, it’s priced at 6/1.
