          Bayern Munich vs RB Leipzig Prediction & Betting Tips

          Bayern Munich welcome RB Leipzig to the Allianz Arena desperate for a victory to keep their slim title hopes alive.

          Date: 24/02/24

          Kick-off time: 17:30

          Venue: Allianz Arena

          Thomas Tuchel’s Bayern Munich side are at risk of allowing Bayer Leverkusen to run away with the Bundesliga title. They currently sit second, eight points behind the league leaders following their 3-2 defeat away at Bochum at the weekend. Bayern are in the midst of a terrible run of form, which has seen them lose three straight in all competitions. This includes a 3-0 loss at Leverkusen, which allowed their opponents to extend their advantage at the top. They also face a 1-0 deficit in the Champions League, after falling to Italian side Lazio in the first leg.

          The Bochum result is just the latest in a run of performances which has left Tuchel under increasing pressure. The club are facing the prospect of missing out on the league title for the first time in 11 seasons. Harry Kane was the big summer acquisition, but whilst his individual stats have been excellent, the side have been unable keep up with the quality of Xabi Alonso’s Leverkusen team.

          Leipzig, in comparison, are in fifth place, one point behind Dortmund in fourth, and six behind third-place Stuttgart. They have the luxury of being able to look forward to those above them, rather than those below, with them holding a comfortable seven-point lead over Eintracht Frankfurt.

          Both teams are amongst the best in the league offensively, so goals should be expected. Bayern have found the net 60 times, which is the best in the division. Led by Kane’s 24 strikes, they should be confident of creating chances. They will also have to be alert at the other end of the pitch, and Leipzig will be hopeful of testing a defence which has not kept a clean sheet in five games. Luis Openda should be the go-to man, as his 16 goals leads the way for his team.

          There have been plenty of goals in recent meetings between the two sides. They have faced off in the last two editions of the German Super Cup with each team coming out on top once. The latest one this season saw Leipzig win 3-0 as Dani Olmo scored a hat-trick. Last campaign was Bayern’s turn, winning 5-3. They were up 3-0 by half time, but Leipzig got one back shortly into the second half to make the game interesting. Serge Gnabry grabbed a fourth to almost put the game to bed before Christopher Nkunku got another. It was game back on when Dominik Szoboszlai scored a third to make it 4-3 on 89 minutes. Leroy Sane netted in the eighth minute of stoppage time to secure the win.

          The reverse fixture this season concluded with the points shared. It was an end-to-end match, with the final score 2-2. Leipzig, however, would have been disappointed to have gone home with just a point, given they had gone into half time 2-0 up. Kane got one back for the visitors from the spot, before Sane equalised with 20 minutes left.

          Form Guide

          Bayern Munich

          In their last five games, Bayern Munich have won three and lost one. They began this stretch of games with a 3-2 win at Augsburg, though it was much more comfortable than the scoreline suggests. Aleksander Pavlovic put his side ahead, before Alphonso Davies doubled the lead on the stroke of half time. Augsburg pulled one back, but Harry Kane scored another to put the game to bed. Ermedin Demirovic scored his second from the spot in the 94th minute, with what was nothing more than a consolation.

          They faced Borussia Monchengladbach at home and came away with a 3-1 win. They did go a goal down but Pavlovic levelled the score before the break. Kane put the champions in front, and Matthijs De Ligt added a third. A huge top-of-the-table clash with Bayer Leverkusen followed, but this ended in humiliating defeat, as they fell 3-0 away from home. Bayern enjoyed more possession, though were only able to muster just one shot on target. A return to Champions League action was unable to help them restore some form as they lost 1-0 at Lazio in the first leg of the last 16. Dayot Upamecano saw red in the 67th minute, and the visitors paid the price as Ciro Immobile converted a penalty just two minutes later. They now face an uphill battle to qualify for the next round.

          Tuchel’s side could not get back to winning ways as they lost 3-2 at Bochum. They took the lead through Jamal Musiala, but found themselves behind at half time. A third was added with over 12 minutes ago to put Bochum out of sight. Upamecano received another red card, but Kane managed to get a second for his side, though it was too late to mount a comeback.

          RB Leipzig

          In their last five games, RB Leipzig have won two, lost two and drawn one. This run started with a heavy 5-2 defeat at third place Stuttgart. They went 2-0 down but quickly got one back through Benjamin Sesko, but conceded another just three minutes after the restart. Lois Openda grabbed another to threaten a comeback, though this was short-lived as Deniz Undav scored his second of the game a minute later. Undav then completed his hat-trick to put the game well and truly out of sight.

          Leipzig responded well with a 2-0 win at home to Union Berlin, with goals from Openda and Sesko securing the victory. Both sides held a lead in their game at Augsburg, but ultimately the points were shared.

          They then faced a tricky test as they took on Real Madrid at home in the first leg of the Champions League last 16. The hosts were heavy underdogs, but did not go down without a fight. In fact, they were harshly denied a goal in the early stages of the game for offside. Madrid eventually broke the deadlock in the 48th minute and now Leipzig must overturn a slender 1-0 deficit when they travel to Spain for the second leg. A return to Bundesliga action meant a return to winning ways as they defeated Borussia Monchengladbach 2-0. Xavi Simons scored the opener, before Openda added a second to complete a comfortable victory.
