Bayern’s Potent Attack Too Powerful


Three of the last four meetings between the two sides have ended as a draw, though Bayern were victorious when they last visited Die Roten Bullen, securing a narrow 1-0 win in April.


Before the international break, Leipzig suffered their second defeat in three Bundesliga matches when they were beaten 1-0 away at Wolfsburg. Die Roten Bullen have now extended their losing league run on the road to five matches, including results from last season.


Jesse Marsch’s task to turn their fortunes around will prove to be a challenge in their next two fixtures, firstly against German giants Bayern Munich, before travelling to England to face Manchester City in their opening Champions League group stage match.


Despite playing out a 1-1 draw with Borussia Monchengladbach on the opening day of the new season, Bayern Munich have looked strong so far this campaign, scoring 24 goals in their first five matches across all competitions.


Bayern will be confident of securing a positive result on Saturday, as they have claimed six wins and five draws in their 12 competitive meetings against Leipzig, with their only defeat suffered away from home in March 2018.

DPP Verdict

As strong as Bayern have been going forward, they have looked vulnerable at times defensively and so Leipzig with be hoping to take advantage of these issues on Saturday. However, the firepower the visitors possess should help them secure all three points at the Red Bull Arena.
