RB Leipzig

Bundesliga season is over and RB Leipzig are at the 3rd place, which guarantees them a spot in the Champions League. It’s obviously great success for them, but they would definitely love to put a cherry on the cake by winning the German Cup before going on a summer break.

They do have a pretty decent squad, although no German team is strong as Bayern Munich. Still, they did do fairly well against the Munich side in the last couple of season. In May, the two played 0:0 in the Bundesliga, while in their first duel of the season, RB Leipzig lost only 1:0 at the Allianz Arena. And before that, in 2018, RB Leipzig managed to beat Bayern at home.

What’s got to worry them ahead of this game is that their form isn’t too impressive, at least not on paper. They failed to win a single game in May, losing one and drawing two. Still, we need to point out in this RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich prediction that they didn’t have to worry too much about their table placement during that period. At that point, they already had enough points to be confident about their European future.

They did get eliminated from the Champions League relatively soon, but no one can say they had a bad season. They managed to win another Bundesliga title and now have a chance to get themselves the cup trophy as well.

Still, the fact is that Bayern haven’t been as dominating in the league as they were in the last couple of seasons. They finished on the top of the Bundesliga table, with only two points more than Borussia Dortmund.

This team is expected to go through a big squad restructuring over the summer. With Robben and Ribery leaving the team, they’re expected to make a couple of big signings. But, till then, they still got one big match to play. Winning the cup would definitely give them something to build on for the next season.

It’s obvious that they’re the favorite in this game, but as you’ll see in our RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich betting tips, they probably won’t have an easy job on Saturday. RB Leipzig are famously tough to beat, so even the mighty attack of Bayern Munich is bound to struggle against them.

RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich Prediction

In the last four duels of these two, Bayern have managed to score only four goals in total. And considering that RB Leipzig are the team with the least number of conceded goals in the Bundesliga, I strongly believe Bayern will struggle to score against them. Still, I do believe that the Munich side will take the trophy eventually.
