The German Bundesliga is brimming with excitement as we approach the 6th round. This weekend promises to be exciting with a showdown between two football giants – Leipzig and Bayern Munich.
Both teams have played well in the opening rounds, but neither could beat a predictably strong Bayer Leverkusen this season. The Bavarians could only manage a 2-2 draw against Leverkusen. The Red Bulls lost 3-2 against Bayer04 in their first league match this season.
Leipzig rebounded strongly after their first loss to Bayer Leverkusen. Since their initial setback, Leipzig has clinched every match and now sits in fourth place on the Bundesliga table with 12 points. The Red Bulls are hot on the heels of Bayern, who top the league with 13 points.
Bayern Munich aims to make amends for their consecutive losses to Leipzig. Historically, they’ve struggled against them head-to-head. Yet, their recent form suggests promise. They demolished Bochum 7-0 in their previous league match and cruised past Preußen Münster with a 4-0 win in the DFB Pokal.

Bayern leads the charge as favorites with away odds at 1.95 (11/5). On the other hand, Leipzig, playing at home, stands at 3.20 (11/5). For those eyeing a tie, the Bundesliga odds for that option is 4.20 (16/5).
Leipzig is riding high with five consecutive victories across all tournaments. They have maintained clean sheets in three out of those five matches. Their Champions League journey for this campaign began with a solid 3-1 win against Young Boys.
In their latest Bundesliga game, they clinched a victory over Borussia Mönchengladbach, thanks to Timo Werner’s decisive goal. Before their Bundesliga match against Bayern, the Red Bulls will face Wehen Wiesbaden in the first round of the DFB Pokal.
Bayern Munich holds the prime position in the Bundesliga, edging out Leverkusen solely based on goal difference. Their dominant performance against Bochum, ending in a 7-0 victory, propelled them to this top spot. Kane’s spectacular hat-trick and goals from Choupo-Moting, de Ligt, Leroy Sané, and Mathys Tel sealed a comfortable triumph against Bochum.
They also advanced to the next stage of the DFB Pokal competition with an easy 4-0 win over Preußen Münster. Choupo-Moting and Mathys Tel were on the score sheet again with one goal each, while Franz Kratzig and Konrad Laimer also scored in this tie.
Online football bookies might lean towards a Bayern Munich victory, but Leipzig’s recent head-to-head stats suggest they can spring a surprise. In their last two showdowns, The Red Bulls have not only beaten the Bavarians but have done so by netting three goals each time. Their emphatic 3-0 win over Bayern earlier this season earned them the coveted German Super Cup title.
Bayern Munich: WWDWW
Leipzig steps into this match, riding a wave of confidence, having faced defeat only once in all competitions this season. That solitary setback, a 3-2 loss to Leverkusen, still saw them scoring twice.
Given Bayern’s defensive vulnerabilities this season, conceding more goals than Leipzig, it wouldn’t be surprising to see The Red Bulls find the net at least twice in this encounter. The Bavarians let in three goals against Man Utd during their Champions League opener. Add to this the absence of Manuel Neuer and experimental options on the right flank, and it’s plausible they’ll let in two or more goals when they face off at the Red Bulls Arena.
Both teams are proven free-scoring sides with a lot of attacking talents. Bayern will be keen to make amends for their earlier defeat, while Leipzig will look to challenge and win this tie. Given the stakes, we anticipate a high-scoring opening half, with over two goals being a solid bet for anyone looking online. If there are precisely two goals by halftime, many bookmakers will offer a refund.
Harry Kane has been on a blistering form for the Bavarians since joining from Spurs during the summer. The gifted English forward stands second in the league’s top scorers list with seven goals. While he didn’t score against Leipzig in the Super Cup after coming off the bench, his recent hat trick against Bochum for his new team should boost his confidence for this encounter. These options are our RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich betting predictions.
Leipzig will miss the service of Dani Olmo, who picked up an injury during international duty with Spain. The Spanish attacker scored all three goals against Bayern in their last encounter. Willi Orban and Amadou Haidara are other players on Leipzig’s injury list.
Neuer will still be sidelined for Bayern due to injury, with Raphael Guerreiro the only outfield player still injured. Apart from these two, the Bavarian will have a solid team to feature in this match. Musiala, Coman, and Sane are all fit for the showdown.
With the current form of Leipzig and their recent excellent performance against Bayern, they should be able to net two goals if they don’t get the win against Harry Kane’s side, who is also favored to get on the scoresheet.
