RB Leipzig – Bayern Munich: preview

RB Leipzig – Bayern Munich: preview

The Bundesliga is back in business, and its first match promises us a real spectacle –
on January 20, the championship leader Bayern Munich will play against third-placed
RB Leipzig. 1xBet is trying to estimate the chances of the participants in this match.

Fortune-telling on coffee grounds

Before the autumn-winter break associated with the World Cup in Qatar, both teams
looked like real success machines. Bayern has only one lost game in the season
(September 17, 0-1 against Augsburg), and in the last 9 official matches, the team
has 8 wins with one draw. It’s even awkward to ask who is number one in the
standings, right?

Surprisingly, RB Leipzig left the field defeated for the last time on September 17 –
then the team lost 0:3 to Borussia Mönchengladbach. The start of the season for the
Bulls was frankly unsuccessful, and then the management quickly changed the
coach – instead of Domenico Tedesco, Marco Rose came. The new manager acted
like lightning and soon the fans were ready to paint the sky in club colors. The team
made impressive progress in the Bundesliga and the cup, got second place in the
Champions League group, and even gave Saxony a real holiday, effectively beating
Real Madrid at home.

All this is wonderful, but there is one big problem: the general condition of both
teams remains a mystery. RB Leipzig and Bayern played their last official matches
on November 12 – more than two months ago. And to find out how the World Cup,
the holiday season, and the Christmas menu have affected the physical condition of
the players, you need to wait until January 20th.

Home field factor

We don't know if it's worth talking about such trifles, but in front of their fans, the
Bulls play especially strongly and with great inspiration. True, we are not sure that
this will work in the game against Bayern: this squad went through the first part of the
season very smoothly and sometimes it seemed that they did not care where to play
against the next opponent.

Manuel Neuer vs Christopher Nkunku

A duel between these players could have been the most significant of the game, but
both players are injured, and replacing them in the shortest possible time is as easy
as finding 100 euros in the city market. Bayern suddenly realized that Manuel Neuer
was out at least until the end of the season, and there was no equivalent
replacement – after all, no one planned that after the World Cup, the best goalkeeper
in Germany would decide to go skiing and earn a broken leg.
Top forward RB Leipzig and the best sniper in the Bundesliga this season,
Christopher Nkunku, missed the World Cup due to injury and will not return to action
until at least the end of January. Will Timo Werner and Emil Forsberg be able to
replace their teammate? We do not know, but this question makes the most
important confrontation in the Bundesliga this season even more intriguing.
