RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich Predictions

Battle for Bundesliga Supremacy: RB Leipzig Lock Horns with Bayern Munich

Key Stats
– RB Leipzig aim to be the first team in 17 years to triumph over Bayern thrice in a single calendar year.
– Bayern Munich have netted a staggering 18 goals in just five league games this season.
– One team has scored three or more goals in five of the last six meetings between these giants.

The German football calendar highlights this Saturday’s electrifying encounter at the Red Bull Arena between RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich. As the Bundesliga resumes its regular fixtures, let’s delve deep into the statistics, team forms and make some educated predictions.

The Current Landscape

Both Leipzig and Bayern have advanced to the DFB-Pokal’s second round. Currently, just a single point separates them in the Bundesliga standings. A victory for either side could tip the balance of the title race this early in the season.

RB Leipzig’s Resilience

RB Leipzig have been on a roll. The recent 3-2 DFB-Pokal triumph against Wehen Wiesbaden, driven largely by Benjamin Sesko’s brace, means they march into this face-off with a six-match winning spree across all competitions. Notably, this includes four consecutive Bundesliga wins and a Champions League success against Young Boys.

Their prowess is evident in the league. Having netted 14 goals in just five league games, they are fourth on the scoring list. Equally commendable is their defence, conceding just four times, giving them a defensive record surpassed only by Eintracht Frankfurt.

Bayern Munich’s Dominance

Bayern’s recent 4-0 thrashing of Preussen Munster showcased their control with 72% ball possession. After inaugurating their Champions League season with a 4-3 victory against Manchester United, they obliterated VfL Bochum 7-0. In this remarkable run, Harry Kane has been exceptional, recording eight goals in seven appearances.

Despite a 3-0 loss to Leipzig in the DFL-Supercup, Bayern, under the tutelage of Thomas Tuchel, have been formidable. Their league performance is a testament to this, securing 13 out of a possible 15 points.

Squad Analysis

Unfortunately for Bayern, Serge Gnabry remains a doubtful starter due to a suspected hand injury. Furthermore, injuries have kept Tarek Buchmann, Gabriel Marusic, and Manuel Neuer out of action. Nevertheless, the return of Harry Kane ensures their attack remains potent.

RB Leipzig’s injury list is also concerning. Notable absentees include Willi Orban, Dani Olmo, Amadou Haidara, and El Chadaille Bitshiabu. However, the consistent Benjamin Sesko is expected to join forces with Lois Openda upfront.


1. Match Outcome: Draw

Justifying the Stalemate:
In recent matches, RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich have shown the depth of their squad capabilities, with both sides emerging dominantly in their respective matches. Taking a closer look at their form, Leipzig are on a six-match winning streak across all competitions, while Bayern Munich, the perennial Bundesliga champions, have secured 13 points out of a possible 15 in the league. The intense competition and the marginal differences in their recent form make this match a challenging one to predict in terms of a clear winner. Hence, the likelihood of this match ending in a draw seems plausible, as two powerhouses of German football face off.

2. Correct Score: 2-2

Goals Galore on the Horizon:
If recent encounters and the attacking prowess of both teams are anything to go by, we’re potentially in for a treat. RB Leipzig have netted 14 goals in five league games this season, showcasing their offensive capabilities. On the other hand, Bayern Munich’s attacking force, spearheaded by Harry Kane who has already scored eight goals in seven appearances, has accumulated 18 goals in five league matches. Given the offensive talents on display and considering the high stakes, a 2-2 scoreline, indicating an evenly-contested game, is a feasible prediction.

3. Goalscorer Prediction: Harry Kane

Kane’s Prolific Form:
Since his arrival at Bayern Munich, Harry Kane has quickly found his footing and is in blistering form. With eight goals in seven appearances, Kane has been the linchpin of Bayern’s attack. Given his knack for finding the back of the net consistently and his crucial role in the team’s offensive setups, predicting him as a goalscorer for the upcoming match against RB Leipzig seems justified. Additionally, his history of rising to the occasion in big matches provides further weightage to this prediction.

4. Corner Prediction: Bayern Munich to have more corners, Total Corners: Over 10.5

Battle for Supremacy from Set-pieces:
Analysing the statistics, Bayern Munich tend to be more aggressive in their approach, averaging 9.2 corners per game. This is indicative of their attacking playstyle, frequently pressuring the opposition defence. In contrast, RB Leipzig averages 4.6 corners per game. Given the expected ebb and flow of this contest, with both teams eager to dominate, we can anticipate a lot of action in and around the penalty boxes. Predicting Bayern to have more corners is based on their season average and attacking intent. Furthermore, combining the corner statistics of both teams, expecting a total of over 10.5 corners in the game is reasonable, reflecting the anticipated intensity of this Bundesliga showdown.
