RB Leipzig lock horns with Bayern Munich in a top-of-the-table Bundesliga clash on Saturday, with the hosts looking to close the gap on their rivals in the battle for the title.
Bayern holds a four-point cushion over the hosts and avoiding defeat will boost their chances of claiming their ninth successive title.
We will assess Paripesa Welcome Bonus prices for our tips for this game.
Leipzig come into this clash on an unbeaten run of eight league matches. A disappointing exit against Liverpool seemed to rattle them a bit as they dropped points at home against Stuttgart in a 1-1 draw. They however got back on track with a narrow 1-0 victory at struggling Arminia in their last league match.
With just seven games to play until the end of the season, every game right now is like a cup final and there is no bigger fixture than this one in as far as Leipzig’s hopes of a first-ever title is concerned.
Although Die Roten Bullen have won just one of their 11 meetings, they will be confident of pulling off a result here. After all, they did claim a point in a thrilling 3-3 draw at the Allianz Arena back in December and are in good form.
Bayern underlined their superiority in this league with a 4-0 thrashing of Stuttgart in their last outing, despite having defender Alphonso Davies dismissed in the 12th minute of the game for a reckless tackle. He was initially booked but a subsequent VAR check upgraded it to a straight red.
The champions are currently sitting at the top of the leaderboard. A win here will pretty much seal the title race as they will go seven points clear at the top and it would be inconceivable to see anyone catching them at this stage of the season.
Hansi Flick’s charges will have to do without their prolific forward Lewandowski who is nursing a knee injury and could be out of action for up to 4 weeks.
Unlike the free-flowing 3-3 draw in the reverse fixture, this is likely to be a very different ballgame altogether. There is so much on the line for both teams and we expect a much more cautious approach here. With both teams likely to field lineups with their starting strikers, it is difficult to see the same bucketload of goals we saw last time hence why we are going for Under 3.5 goals here @ 1.63 as our initial betting tip.
Leipzig are currently on the longest unbeaten run in the Bundesliga. They have not lost in their last 8 games, amassing a massive 22 from a possible 24 points. With Bayern missing key players due to injury or suspension, this may well be the best chance for Leipzig to push this Bundesliga fight to the wire. We feel they have enough quality in their rank and file to claim at least a point here and we are happy to back them on the double chance @ 1.60 for our final call for this clash.
