Bayern M – Leipzig Preview

The Bundesliga champion Bayern Munich hosts RB Leipzig at the Allianz Arena after conceding three consecutive defeats in all competitions, including two in the league. Because of this Bayern are now 8 points behind the leader Bayer Leverkusen. Now let’s preview this upcoming fixture in our free soccer predictions for today.


Times are tough for Bayern Munich. The Bavarian giants are unrecognisable lately. They lost the crucial game against Leverkusen and the BayArena, and shockingly lost against Bochum as well. Is the title race in Germany over now? Technically it’s not, but Bayer Leverkusen are becoming more and more confident of winning their first championship.


On Wednesday Bayern Munich confirmed that Thomas Tuchel will finish the season, but he will leave the club in the summer. Tuchel replaced the sacked Julian Nagelsmann in the middle of the last season, but this decision was not the smartest from Bayern’s board. Tuchel never really managed to impose his philosophy on the players. Clearly Bayern needs a change here.


Most likely Thomas Tuchel will change some things after the 2-3 defeat against Bochum last weekend. His biggest problem is that many of Bayern’s players are missing at the moment. Dayot Upamecano is suspended while Coman, Mazraoui, Gnabry, Sarr and Laimer are not available because of injuries.


Leroy Sane could return in the starting eleven against Leipzig while the new signing Bryan Zaragoza could start for the first time as well. Eric Dier could also return in the line-up after he was benched last weekend. Mathys Tel remains an option for the manager as well.


Harry Kane remains one of the few Bayern players who play on a very high level this season. The English international has scored 25 Bundesliga goals since his arrival from Tottenham. One thing is for sure – even if he doesn’t win a trophy, Kane’s first season at Bayern is success.


What Bayern Munich needs to do right now is get their defense in order. Kim and De Ligt started against Bochum, but it didn’t bring stability to the team. That’s why Eric Dier could be starting in the next game.


RB Leipzig approach this visit to Munich from 5th place in the Bundesliga standings. The Red Bulls are just one point behind Borussia Dortmund and the Top 4 so they are motivated to get a positive result at the Allianz Arena. It’s a perfect moment to win against Bayern as the champions are in a crisis right now.


Leipzig won 7 points in their last three matches which means that they are slowly improving after some tough moments. Last weekend Marco Rose’s team faced Borussia M’gladbach at home and secured a 2-0 win at the Red Bull Arena. Xavi Simons opened the score for Leipzig while Lois Openda made it double.

The Belgian striker Lois Openda is playing really well this season. The former Lens star is in Top 3 of the Bundesliga goalscorers with 16 goals. His duel against Harry Kane will be fun to watch. At the same time players like Dani Olmo and Xavi Simons are always causing danger upfront. Bayern’s defense will have a lot to do against Leipzig on Saturday.


That’s the free soccer predictions for today for the Bundesliga fixture between Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig at the Allianz Arena. We see Bayern as a team in crisis at the moment, but you should never write them off. At the same time RB Leipzig are chasing a place in Top 4 so they will be very motivated to win here. The Red Bulls are good enough to do it, but it’s never easy at this stadium. Let’s see how this one will go.
