RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich Predictions

Score Prediction - Bayern Munich 2 RB Leipzig 1

This is a top-two clash in the Bundesliga. Leipzig are four points behind Bayern with eight games to go.

A win for the visitors would pretty much wrap up the title, and even though Bayern have a crucial Champions League tie against PSG in midweek, they look value at odds-against to win here.

The Bavarians came on strong in last year’s title race, and after dropping some silly points against Frankfurt and Bielefeld a month ago, they have won their last four games, scoring 16 in the process.

One of those wins was 4-2 from behind against Dortmund, a typical display of quality and resilience.

Leipzig have been formidable at home this year, but it is not often that Bayern can be backed at a price as big as 11/8, and it looks too good to turn down.
