RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich Match Preview
While the destination of German Bundesliga crown is more or less decided, the race for Champions League spots is very intense. RB Leipzig are entrenched in a tight fight for top-four places and that makes their game against leaders Bayern very tricky. Can they pick up vital points in this RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich Bundesliga fixture?
Leipzig have had a wonderful midweek where they progressed to the Europa League quarter finals at the expense of Zenit. That should definitely put them in good spirits ahead of this RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich fixture. However, the hosts are sixth in the table after 26 games (40 pts, W11, D7, L8). The teams from second to sixth are separated by a mere six points and the hosts know that they can move up the ladder with an improvised showing. It won’t be easy, though, as the hosts are winless in four league games coming into this game (D2, L2). Their home form too has tapered off as they failed to pick up any point in their last two games (D1, L1).
Bayern are well and truly on top of the Bundesliga table after 26 games (66 pts, W21, D3, L2), which is a handsome 20 points ahead of Schalke. If the Bavarians can avoid defeat in this RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich encounter and the results of other games go its way, they can wrap up the Bundesliga crown this weekend itself! With the Champions League competition moving into the business end of things, there is no doubt that the visitors will look to make this game count. That shouldn’t be beyond their reach as they come into this fixture on the back of an 18-match unbeaten streak (W17, D1). Even in the league, they are unbeaten in 13 games (W12, D1) and have won their last six league games away from home.
