Playing out what turned out to be a seven-goal thriller against Hoffenheim in midweek, Bayern Munich will turn their attention back to Bundesliga duties when they welcome fellow title contenders RB Leipzig to the Allianz Arena on Sunday evening.
Picking up a 4-3 win in the DFB Pokal on Tuesday, the reigning champions have found a route back to the top of the table and now find themselves in the midst of an eight-match winning run across all competitions.
On the flip side, crashing out of the DFP Pokal thanks to what was another shock defeat against Eintracht Frankfurt in midweek, their second defeat against the Eagles over the past week, Leipzig have failed to win any of their last three matches across all formats.
Watching Sunday’s hosts leapfrog them to top spot, the Whites have suffered back-to-back defeats away from the Red Bull Arena and Julian Nagelsmann’s men have landed just a sole win on the road since the end of November.
However, with the two title contenders playing out a 1-1 draw when they faced off earlier in the season, you might be interested to know that a similar stalemate betting offers can be found at 9/2 with Ladbrokes.
The free-scoring Bavarians
Booking their spot in the fourth round of this year’s DFB Pokal thanks to what was a stunning 4-3 win over a high-flying Hoffenheim in midweek, Bayern appear to be a side who have found their best form at what is a crucial time.
Climbing back to the top of the Bundesliga thanks to Sunday’s guests so publically slipping up, Head Coach Hans-Dieter Flick finds his side in the midst of an eight-match winning run and have a Champions League knockout tie on the horizon.
A huge part of Munich’s recent purple patch has been thanks to some scintillating performances in the final third. One man who has continued to lead Bayern’s charge this season has been the red-hot, Robert Lewandowski.
Bagging a brace on Tuesday, the Polish marksman has already recorded a remarkable 39 strikes for club and country since opening the 2019/2020 campaign.
Now recording at least a trio of strikes in each of their last four matches on the bounce, you might be interested to know that Sunday’s hosts can be found priced at 1/1 with Bet365 to once again bag over 2.5 goals this weekend.
Timo Werner to steal the show
Hit with back-to-back shock defeats against Eintracht Frankfurt over the past week and without a win in their last three outings, RB Leipzig are a side desperately seeking a bounce.
While fans around the Red Bull Arena might find their side in the midst of their most testing spell of the season so far, the Whites also have a Champions League knockout tie against Tottenham on the horizon and have one striking sensation who has continued to take the Bundesliga by storm.
Cementing his spot as Nagelsmann’s attacking MVP, Timo Werner has recorded nine top-flight goals in his last eight appearances and will make the trip to Munich high on confidence.
Already recording three strikes against Bayern since bursting onto the Bundesliga scene, you might be interested to know that Germany’s latest starlet can be found pencilled in at 11/10 with Coral to extend on that tally this weekend.
