RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich Prediction & Match Preview

RB Leipzig

Bayern München

03 April 2021 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET Bundesliga Red Bull Arena

All eyes will be on Red Bull Arena when Leipzig and Bayern Munchen take on each other in the Bundesliga round 27. 

The Red Bulls aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Arminia Bielefeld which saw them keep their title hopes alive, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s showdown. 

A man to watch in the home team will be Dani Olmo, who scored a wonder goal for Spain in the World Cup qualifier against Georgia.

Kevin Kampl is banned for the match, while Angelino and Dayot Upamecano are both likely to miss the game with injuries. 

Bayern Munchen, on the other hand, aim to build on a thrilling 4-0 win over Stuttgart where Alphonso Davies was sent off after just 11 minutes. 

Both Davies and Boateng are banned for the match, and seeing that key attacker Robert Lewandowski suffered an injury while on the international duty, under 2.5 goals betting option should be considered.

Team News:

Leipzig will be without the suspended Kevin Kampl after the midfielder picked up his fifth booking of the season in Bielefeld, so Amadou Haidara or Tyler Adams may partner Sabitzer at the heart of Nagelsmann's midfield.

Defender Dayot Upamecano, who will join Bayern from Leipzig in the summer, should be fit to return after recovering from a muscle injury, but Marcel Halstenberg will miss out after testing positive for COVID-19.

Dominik Szoboszlai and Konrad Laimer will not feature due to groin and knee problems, with the match also likely to come too soon for Angelino after his recent muscular issue.

Nagelsmann must choose whether to start without a recognised striker once again, which worked quite well for him in the reverse fixture.

Bayern's most notable absentee is Lewandowski, who has been ruled out for up to a month after his knee problem flared up again while on international duty with Poland.

Flick must choose between Eric Choupo-Moting, Gnabry or Muller in the central striker role, with the Champions League quarter-final tie against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday perhaps influencing his decision.

Davies and Jerome Boateng are also both unavailable against Leipzig due to suspension, with Lucas Hernandez and Niklas Sule likely to replace them in the starting XI.

Douglas Costa, Corentin Tolisso and Ron-Thorben Hoffmann are all still on the treatment table for the foreseeable future.

RB Leipzig possible starting lineup:
Gulacsi; Orban, Upamecano, Klostermann; Mukiele, Adams, Sabitzer, Haidara; Olmo, Nkunku, Forsberg

Bayern Munich possible starting lineup:
Neuer; Pavard, Sule, Alaba, Hernandez; Kimmich, Goretzka; Sane, Muller, Coman; Gnabry
