Bayern Munich v Leipzig tips

Bayern Munich aren’t totally invincible at the moment and the European champions have actually dropped five points in their opening nine games, although that still hasn’t stopped Hansi Flick’s team from sitting top of the Bundesliga standings.

Indeed, Bayern lost their opening away match of the season when Hoffenheim ran riot to land a 4-1 victory although that came early in the campaign and it has been a relatively unblemished campaign since then, with the German champions making short work of their Champions League opponents.

Are Bayern Bankers Against Leipzig?

Aside from a 1-1 draw against Werder Bremen on 21 November, it’s been a spectacular run of victories for a powerful Bayern Munich who have pretty much carried on where they left off after last season’s amazing second half of the season which saw them recover to embark on some brilliant form.

It’s hard to pick holes in a Bayern team who recently came from behind to win 3-1 away to Stuttgart, with Robert Lewandowski scoring a seventeenth goal of the season in this match, while Leroy Sane and Douglas Costa were on the bench ready to wreak havoc as substitutes.

Bayern are likely to be popular in weekend accumulators and we certainly wouldn’t put anyone off the German champions, with Joshua Kimmich expected to be back in the squad for this clash, although Serge Gnabry and Leon Goretzka are enjoying some excellent form.

How Can Leipzig Stop Bayern From Winning?

RB Leipzig do deserve some tremendous credit for managing to attain so many points in the Bundesliga this season, with Julian Nagelsmann’s side having twenty points from nine matches and that puts them second in the table which is decent considering that Timo Werner scored so many goals for the German side last season.

Werner has since left for Chelsea, with Leipzig having enjoyed five wins from their five home games, although things have been a little stickier on the road, with one win in four encounters and there was also a brutal defeat at Old Trafford in the Champions League.

Indeed, Leipzig might need to rein in their attacking instincts for a game which would see Bayern race ahead in the standings if they lost this match, with the visitors having kept things really right and seven goals have been scored in their four away games.

Scoring goals could be an issue for a Leipzig side who struggled past Arminia in their most recent match, with Alex Sorloth struggling for goals and the former Crystal Palace man is not quite the replacement for Werner.

What Are the Best Bets for Bayern v Leipzig?

We wouldn’t put anyone off the idea of betting on Bayern and you can get a 50% return on your stake should you choose to back Flick’s side on the Full-Time Result betting market, with Munich looking bombproof at the Allianz Arena and ready to make a statement of intent in this Bundesliga clash.

It should also be noted that Bayern will have rested several players for the midweek Champions League clash away to Atletico Madrid, whereas Leipzig might have to recover quickly from a European Cup encounter in Istanbul.

If you’re looking for more juice in the price but still want to get with Bayern, then you can get 5/4 about Bayern leading at half-time and full-time for this clash, with the home side likely to play with an intensity which can play opponents off the park.

We actually think that the Asian Handicap market could also be an option and you can get decent odds about Bayern with a -1.5 goal handicap, while there’s also the option to bet on the home side to nil.

The 3-0 correct scoreline could be on the money and this is available at betting odds of 12/1 which could end up looking big with hindsight.
