Bundesliga / RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich – The second derby in the fourth round is again a match between two teams that will play in the Champions League this season. Right now they occupy first two places in the table, Leipzig the first one, which is the only team that has won all three league matches played so far. Bayern blundered in the first round when it merely drew but then it triumphed two times in a row and they were very efficient. Match between the teams played last year in Leipzig had ended as a goalless draw.
Game RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich begins 14.09.2019 at 18:30 CET
The only team to win all three matches played so far in the Bundesliga is Leipzig and that is why they occupy the first place in the table. They played really well all three matches and scored nine goals, which translates in three on average. From the beginning of match in Berlin they started furiously and in the end they won Union Berlin by 4-0. It could be said it was expected result against new member of the Bundesliga but Borussia Dortmund had a bad time in that away match so Leipzig’s fans should be satisfied.
The most difficult victory was against Eintracht at home, although they had a lead of 2-0 but they received a goal in the very finish of match. Forward Y. Poulsen was particularly good in that match, but Leipzig's best player this season is Ti. Werner. He scored in all three matches played so far and was especially good in the previous round in M'gladbach. Leipzig had defeated Borussia by 3-1 and Werner scored all three goals. We expect that Mukiele and Demme refresh the starting line-up.
Probable lineups RB Leipzig: Gulacsi – Mukiele, Konate, Orban – Klostermann, Demme, Halstenberg – Sabitzer, Forsberg – Y. Poulsen, Ti. Werner
Bayern is even more efficient than its host but they have two points fewer since they underperformed in the first round when they faced Hertha at home. The match ended as 2-2 draw despite fact that they expected a sound victory. Forward Lewandowski showed in that match that he is good shape. Still, Bayern lost two points but then they played much better in away match with Schalke which they won by 3-0. Lewandowski scored all three goals in that match, and after two rounds he was the only player who scored for Bayern.
In the previous round Bayern played the best match so far; it steamrolled Mainz in Munich by even 6-1, despite fact that the guests were first to take lead early in the match. Lewandowski scored only one goal this time and interestingly each goal was scored by a different player. It was also a match in which for the first time played from the beginning last two reinforcements, Perisic and Coutinho, and Perisic was one of scorers. It is possible that both of them will stay on the bench now if manager Kovac decides to rotate again, which means that Gnabry and T. Muller could get chance. Goretzka is the only injured player.
Probable lineups Bayern Munich: Neuer – Pavard, Sule, Hernandez, Alaba – Kimmich, Alcantara – Gnabry, T. Muller, Coman – Lewandowski
Betting Pick: RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich
We expect many excitements in this match and offensive tactic on both sides. Matches between Leipzig and Bayern played last year were unexpectedly inefficient but now we predict a different outcome, with goals on both sides of the pitch.
