Bayern Munich vs RB Leipzig Match Preview and Stats
Bayern vs Leipzig Odds
The Bavarians are a dominant team in Germany, and once again, they are favorites to win the German Super Cup. According to the bookmakers, a win for Bayern Munich is worth 1.62 (8/13), while RB Leipzig is priced at 5.10 (4/1) to grab the win in normal time. A draw at full-time is valued at 4.50 (7/2) odds.
Bayern Munich’s football betting odds to win the trophy with extra time and penalties included are pegged at 1.33 (1/3), while the Red Bulls’ are priced at 3.50 (5/2) to win the German football Super Cup.
Thomas Tuchel was lucky to avoid the sack last season after underperforming with the team, but the Bundesliga win was enough to hand him a lifeline. Bayern Munich are the current champions of the DFB Super Cup, and they would be looking to retain this title for the fourth consecutive year.
Bayern Munich struggled in attack in the second half of last season, and they have been in the market for a new striker, with Harry Kane being the top target at the moment. They have already bought a center defender Kim Min-Jae from Napoli while sold Sadio Mane to Saudi Arabian Al Nassr and Lucas Hernandez to PSG.
The Red Bulls hired Marco Rose last September, and he delivered the first trophy of his tenure in less than a year in charge, winning the DFB Pokal last season. RB Leipzig finished just five points behind the top of the table, and they will be hoping for a strong start to the season.
RB Leipzig has recruited some top talents this summer, with stars like Lois Openda and Xavi Simmons joining the team. At the same time, Konrad Laimer left the club as a free agent and joined Bayern Munich, while Domonik Szobolszlai moved to Liverpool for around 70 million euros. They aren’t going to be pushovers this season, and this is a good test for the Red Bulls.

DFL SuperCup 2023 Bayern vs Leipzig Predictions
Both Teams To Score & Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.83 (5/6)
One thing about this game is that it will be a high-scoring match, as both teams prefer end-to-end attacking football. Bayern Munich has scored nine goals in their last three games, and their last two victories were 4-3 and 4-2 wins against Liverpool and Monaco, respectively.
RB Leipzig began the preseason with a 2-1 defeat against Udinese, and they have been pretty solid in attack. The Red Bulls hammered Las Palmas 3-0 in their last game, and although they aren’t expected to thrash Bayern Munich, they would be well involved in the goals. A bet on both teams to score and the match to end with 3+ goals is a very good option in this game.
Bayern Munich To Win @ 1.62 (8/13)
Bayern Munich is still a very strong side, and despite their shortcomings last year, they ended up winning the Bundesliga. The Bavarians have started nicely, and they were very great against a full-strength Liverpool team. This is a game where they are looking to win, and playing at home is also an added advantage for Bayern Munich. RB Leipzig has just one win from their last four games, and they are likely to struggle against a complete Bayern team.
Lois Openda To Score Anytime @ 4.00 (3/1)
RB Leipzig signed Lois Openda from Lens this summer, and he is going to be a very improved player for the German side. The Belgian forward started 29 league games last season, and he scored 21 goals. He looks to have settled in nicely at the club, and he scored a brace in Leipzig’s 3-0 win over Las Palmas. The German bookies are offering very valuable odds on Lois Openda to score anytime.
Bayern Munich vs RB Leipzig Team News
Manuel Neuer picked up a leg injury last season, and he is still in recovery, with his return date set for September.

Amadou Haidara, Christoph Baumgartner, and Peter Gulacsi are all expected to miss the Super Cup final through injuries. Marco Rose still has a good number of players to count on in their absence, and he is likely to stick with his 4-4-2 formation with Lois Openda and Timo Werner up top.
