RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich match preview
Most would expect Bayern Munich to collect a 12th successive Meisterschale come May, but this will be a serious test of their title credentials.
Back in August, RB Leipzig hammered Bayern 3-0 in the DFL-Supercup, Dani Olmo with a hat-trick at Allianz Arena, thereby picking up that trophy for the very first time.
Since then though, the champions are unbeaten, only dropping points in a 2-2 thriller against Bayer Leverkusen 15 days ago.
Last weekend, Thomas Tuchel’s team demolished VfL Bochum 7-0, doing so for a third successive season, with Harry Kane bagging a hat-trick, also responsible for two assists.
This leaves die Roten top of the Bundesliga, but will they still be there come close of play on Saturday night?
RB Leipzig meantime have won four on the spin since defeat to Bayer Leverkusen on the opening weekend of the season.
Last time out, Marco Rose’s side battled to a 1-0 victory at Borussia Mönchengladbach, with Timo Werner squeezing home a late winner from an acute angle.
This is a clash not to be missed, so will Bayern Munich leave Red Bull Arena with a statment victory?
RB Leipzig team news
Marco Rose named a very strong side for Wednesday’s DFB-Pokal tie against Wehen Wiesbaden and with good reason, as his team snuck through 3-2.
Timo Werner’s winner last weekend could earn him a start here, coming in for Benjamin Šeško.
Leipzig’s player of the season, so far, has been Xavi Simons, so could he be the difference here?

Sven Ulreich will be in goal, in the continued absence of Manuel Neuer, while Konrad Laimer will be up against the side he left last summer.
Predicted XI (4-2-3-1): Ulreich; Mazraoui, de Ligt, Kim Min-jae, Davies; Kimmich, Laimer, Sané, Müller, Coman; Kane.
