Today's Betting Tips for RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich are targeting their fifth straight victory over RB Leipzig when these German giants renew acquaintances on Friday evening. Read our top predictions for this week’s fixture below.

Over 3.5 Goals

The Bundesliga campaign finally kicks back into gear following an extended winter break with a tantalising-looking clash between RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich at the Red Bull Arena on Friday evening. When these big-hitters went at it earlier in the season in the German Super Cup, seven goals rattled the net in a thrilling 5-2 victory for the Bavarians. Indeed, five or more goals have been notched in each of the last three tussles between these exciting outfits and our first prediction tips the over 3.5 goals line to be beaten again here.

Leroy Sane to Score Anytime

Rapid German winger Leroy Sane has been enjoying another impactful season in the Bundesliga and beyond in 2022/23 and the 27-year-old seems to find another gear when he lines up against RB Leipzig. Sane has etched his name on the scoresheet in two of Bayern’s last three meetings with Die Roten Bullen and the attacker’s blend of pace and trickery should make him a major threat to the Leipzig defence again on Friday. With that in mind, we recommend considering a stake on Sane to score anytime again.

Let's take a closer look at the latest markets, odds and probability figures ahead of Friday’s showdown between RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich below.

 RB Leipzig odds: 14/5 (3.8) – 26.3%

 Draw odds: 33/10 (4.3) – 23.3%

 Bayern Munich odds: 83/100 (1.83) – 54.6%

The bookies don’t think home advantage will count for much this week judging by their match result odds, though over 2.5 goals is as narrow as 2/5 (1.4) – 71.4% in what should be an end-to-end skirmish in Leipzig. Die Roten Bullen are 19/20 (1.95) – 51.3% in the double chance market, if you feel they’ve been unfairly discounted.

RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for Friday’s Bundesliga encounter between RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich below.

RB Leipzig

RB Leipzig can jump up to 2nd place in the table with a victory – if other results are favourable. A victory for RB Leipzig in this fixture could also put them in the title race. It has been a tremendous run of form under Marco Rose, who has picked up seven victories in his 10 Bundesliga matches since coming to the club as the replacement for Domenico Tedesco. RB Leipzig have produced some impressive performances at the Red Bull Arena this campaign.

Goalkeeper Peter Gulasci is a long-term absentee with an ACL injury, while defender Abdou Diallo is out with a muscle problem. Christopher Nkunku is absent too, which is a major blow, though Janis Blaswich and David Raum could make it back in time from minor ailments.

Predicted Lineup for RB Leipzig: Blaswich – Henrichs, Orban, Gvardiol, Raum – Szoboszlai, Schlager, Haidarra, Forsberg – Silva, Olmo

Bayern Munich

Bayern only have slender a four-point advantage over Freiburg. The visitors, though, have not suffered a defeat in the last 13 matches. Julian Nagelsmann has also seen his team drop only two points in the recent eight league matches. The head-to-head numbers with RB Leipzig are heavily in favour of Bayern Munich. The Bayern Munich coach claimed that the Bundesliga is exciting once again with several teams involved in the title race, but he would want to get a sizable advantage upon the return to domestic action.

Manuel Neuer won't play again this season, while Lucas Hernandez is also out of contention until the summer. Noussair Mazraoui, Sadio Mane and Bouna Sarr are also in the treatment room for Bayern. New signing Daley Blind will hope to play a part. The champions have a four-point lead at the summit of the current Bundesliga standings.

Predicted Lineup for Bayern Munich: Ulreich – Pavard, Upamecano, de Ligt, Stanisic – Kimmich, Goretzka, Musiala – Gnabry, Sane, Coman

Player to Watch – Timo Werner

With Christopher Nkunku out injured, a major chunk of goal-scoring power has been removed from the RB Leipzig team, though Timo Werner will hope to pick up the slack against Bayern. The 26-year-old has scored eight times in 12 starts for Leipzig in all competitions this term and he knows how to find the net if chances fall his way.
