Leipzig v Bayern Munich tips – Leipzig looking to topple the champions

RB Leipzig have never won a German Bundesliga title although they’re now among the country’s leading teams and they have an outside chance to snatching Bayern Munich’s crown this season, with Julian Nagelsmann’s side sitting second in the overall standings.

Leipzig are four points behind Bayern Munich with eight games remaining although this clash at the Red Bull Arena represents an obvious opportunity for the underdogs to secure three precious points which would thrust them right into the title picture.

Can RB Leipzig Pull Off a Bundesliga Betting Shock?

If Leipzig are to win the 2020/21 German Bundesliga, then you would think they’ll need to land a victory in this clash, with William Hill prepared to offer 23/10 about the home side landing a precious three points which would move them to within a point of the German champions.

The home side have won ten of their thirteen home matches this season, with the team having recovered well from losing master marksman Timo Werner to Chelsea and they average nearly two goals per home match despite not having a prolific striker in the division.

Considering that Liverpool dumped them out of the Champions League, Nagelsmann’s side can focus heavily on the remainder of their domestic campaign and you might think that betting odds of 29/20 about Leipzig on the Asian Handicap market off scratch is an attractive betting price.

Bayern Looking to Put Bundesliga Title to Bed

Bayern Munich landed the German Bundesliga title last season before becoming champions of Europe and the dream is very much alive for the Bavarian outfit who will clash with Leipzig in this clash before that massive European encounter against Paris Saint-Germain which takes place on Wednesday.

Hansi Flick’s have done little to suggest that they can’t repeat an impressive double again, with Bayern available at odds-against if you compare the Bundesliga football betting odds and many punters will want to back Munich considering they boast an excellent win rate as always.

Bayern came into the international break off the back of six consecutive victories which involved them scoring twenty-two goals although it is interesting to note that there was a goal conceded in all but one of those clashes, with the team boasting an amazing striker in the form of Robert Lewandowski.

The striker has managed 44 goals in all competitions and he recently plundered a hat-trick against Borussia Dortmund before doing the same against Stuttgart, with many bookies looking to bet on the Polish striker to score the first goal of this clash and it’s no surprise to see that he’s on penalty duties.

What Are the Best Bets for Leipzig v Bayern?

The bottom line is that Leipzig sit comfortably in second and it’s all about them trying to pull out the stops in order to topple their opponents. We can therefore expect Julian Nagelsmann to set up his team in order to attack their opponents and that is exactly what happened when the teams clashed on 5 December.

This game ended in a 3-3 draw and it’s not inconceivable that we’ll see something similar happening this time around, with Over 2.5 Goals trading at betting odds of 4/9 and there’s the chance to push this further and bet on the Over 3.5 Goals which is priced up at 11/10 which means we’ll need four or more goals scored.

However, the best football bet could be to back Bayern Munich on the Winner + BTTS betting market, with some bookies offering betting odds bigger than 2/1 about Flick’s team securing a victory along with both sides finding the net.

There’s an alternative betting market where you can check out the odds comparison and get 17/10 about a win for the visitors and Over 2.5 Goals to be scored which will surely go close considering that we’ll see lots of chances created and shots on target.
