RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich
Date: Saturday, 11 September 2021
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Red Bull Arena (Leipzig).
Bayern aim to extend their perfect start to the Bundesliga campaign when they travel to Leipzig on Saturday.
It is also a quick return for Julian Nagelsamann to the fort where he won most accolades of his career. He led Leipzig to a second placed finish last season in the middle of switching allegiance to Munich.
RB Leipzig under new manager Jesse Marsch had a turbulent start with the team suffering 1-0 defeats against Wolfsburg and Mainz. Meantime, they excelled in the only home game played so far by crushing Stuttgart 5-0.
On the other hand, Bayern unleashed their lethal strength after dropping points in the season opener at Monchengladbach (1-1). This included the Super Cup win over Dortmund (3-1) and Bundesliga victories over Koln 3-2 and Hertha Berlin (5-0).
Robert Lewandowski netted in all three Bundesliga games so far, taking it to 5 in 3 games with a hattrick against Hertha.
Serge Gnarby is a player worth mentioning, though not often on the scoresheet, is the pivot of Nagelsmann’s attacking front.

- Bayern are unbeaten in the last 7 against Leipzig with 3 wins and 4 draws.
- Last season’s corresponding fixture ended 1-0 in favour of the Bavarians.

RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich Prediction
Both teams are still adjusting to the philosophy of their new managers and the progress is halted by the international break.
However, Bayern looked like the better side in matches played so far and it was bound to happen with a high number of world class players in the squad.
Bayern Munich to win priced at 2.25 odd is great value for punters and appears to me as the best bet this weekend.
We will aslo back the over 2.5 goals in the match, Leipzig is meeting an elite side for the first time this season, meantime Bayern is bound to concede against regardless of the stature of the opposition.
There are some good options in the anytime goal-scorer market. Serge Gnabry stands out in terms of price. Dominik Szoboszalai is another option, the Hungarian who rose to prominence under Jesse Marsch at Salzburg can curl a long ball
