Bayern Munich vs RB Leipzig - Match Preview
⚽ 20 May 2023 - 16:30 GMT +0
Just one point keeps Bayern Munich above Dortmund at the Bundesliga summit heading into the penultimate round, meaning the consecutive champions are just two victories away from tightening their stranglehold on the division. This has ended up being the tightest title race since Bayern were level on points with Schalke at this stage in 2010, but they ended up finishing five points above the Royal Blues on that occasion, but would undoubtedly settle for any margin this time around!
Returning to a packed-out Allianz Arena for the final time this season should provide a huge boost for Bayern, who have followed up a three-game home winless run by scoring eight unanswered goals across two Bundesliga wins (W2, D2, L1). The brilliant Bavarians have scored in each of their last 56 home league games, yet ominously, the last time they failed to do so was in a goalless draw against RB Leipzig back in 2020.
There’s a great incentive for the Red Bulls to keep Bayern quiet once again too, as victory would assure their place in the top four with a round to go and more importantly, next season's Champions League. That could be all but sealed even earlier if Freiburg fails to win against Wolfsburg, yet finishing as high as possible with the associated prize money remains a worthy cause.
That’s not to mention the importance of maintaining momentum (W3) ahead of their DFB Pokal final on June 3 against Eintracht Frankfurt. Any continuation of Leipzig’s current four-game win streak will likely rely on their steely backline playing at their best as they have done for much of the season. They’ve actually allowed opposition sides a league-low 284 shots and just 99 on target, making for impressive per-game averages of 8.88 and 3.09, respectively.
📋 Key battle: Two players with slender hopes of picking up the Bundesliga ‘Torjägerkanone’ will come head-to-head here with Bayern’s Serge Gnabry and Leipzig’s Christopher Nkunku each leading the way for their teams with 13 league goals apiece. Each player scored and assisted in the curtain-raising German Super Cup H2H this season, which Bayern won 5-3!
⚡ Hot stat: Leipzig is winless in 15 of their 16 competitive H2Hs against Bayern Munich (W1, D6, L9), which includes their longest current winless streak against any side (D5, L6).
