Bayern Munich announced this week that Thomas Tuchel will leave the club in the summer and the under-fire coach will be desperate to avoid a fourth defeat on the spin when the champions test themselves against bogey side RB Leipzig in Bavaria.

Pre-game odds and win probability: Leipzig’s price catches the eye

  • HOME: 4/6 (1.67) – 60%
  • DRAW: 16/5 (4.20) – 23.8%
  • AWAY: 7/2 (4.50) – 22.2%

*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

A combination of their poor form and lengthy injury list has had an impact on Bayern Munich’s prices ahead of the weekend and an RB Leipzig side that has already avoided defeat twice against the champions this term could be a dark horse again.
