Bayern Munich vs RB LeipzigGerman Bundesliga, KO: 17:30 May 20, 2023, Allianz Arena
Bayern Munich will be looking to maintain their lead at the top of the Bundesliga as they host RB Leipzig on Saturday. Both teams have been in good form lately but Bayern are in good form at home and are expected to maintain their fine record over Leipzig.
By all indications, it has been a turbulent campaign for Bayern Munich, who have not been as dominant as they would like. With just two matches left to play, they are only one point clear of Borussia Dortmund, who have been breathing down their neck all season.
The good news for Bayern Munich is that they appear to have hit their stride in recent weeks having won their last three Bundesliga matches. They showed their full quality last time out, claiming a 6-0 victory over Schalke 04 with Serge Gnabry netting a brace.
That result highlights a solid home record for Bayern Munich, who are yet to suffer a Bundesliga defeat at the Allianz Arena all season. Thomas Tuchel’s men have won six of their last seven league matches in front of their fans, scoring two or more goals in all six wins.
Sitting third in the standings, eight points behind Bayern Munich with two matches left to play, the Bundesliga title is out of reach for RB Leipzig. The target for Marco Rose’s men in the final weeks will be holding on to their Champions League spot and fending off fast rising Freiburg, who are only four points off the pace.
Like Bayern Munich, RB Leipzig have also been in good form in recent weeks, winning five of their last six Bundesliga matches. They claimed a 2-1 victory over Werder Bremen in their previous fixture with Willi Orban and Dominik Szoboszlai getting the goals.
RB Leipzig have not been as dominant on their travels with two wins and three defeats in their last five away matches in the Bundesliga. However, one of those wins came in their previous fixture on the road as they picked up a 1-0 victory at Freiburg.
