RB Leipzig were tipped by many shrewd judges to challenge for Bundesliga honours this term and they can be competitive against Bayern Munich on home turf.
Julian Nagelsmann has led the hosts to three straight league wins since arriving from Hoffenheim, with nine goals scored, to put them top of the table.
This is the acid test of their title credentials, but 9/10 for the early leaders to avoid defeat is our initial RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich prediction.
A Look At RB Leipzig’s Betting Odds
Leipzig acquired some youthful energy from the Premier League over the summer, completing a permanent deal for Everton winger Ademola Lookman and signing Chelsea midfielder Ethan Ampadu on loan.
However, it is their established stars who have been doing the business so far, notably Germany striker Timo Werner.
The 23-year-old has netted in all three Bundesliga fixtures and hit a hat-trick in a 3-1 victory at Borussia Monchengladbach before the international break.
Punters can get 11/2 for Werner to strike first here and that is added to our RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich betting tips.
He bagged a brace when Bayern won 5-4 at this venue in May 2017 and grabbed the winning goal in a 2-1 home victory over FC Hollywood 19 months ago.
Denmark forward Yussuf Poulsen and Austria midfielder Marcel Sabitzer have also started well for Leipzig, while Emil Forsberg and new capture Patrik Schick were on target for Sweden and the Czech Republic respectively in Euro 2020 qualifiers.
A Look At Bayern Munich’s Betting Odds
Of course, Bayern can never be taken lightly and they have recovered well from a shaky start to the campaign, which saw them beaten by Borussia Dortmund in Germany’s Super Cup before only drawing with Hertha Berlin first up in the Bundesliga.
Robert Lewandowski fired a treble in their 3-0 success at Schalke and he was also on target in a 6-1 rout of Mainz last time out.
Losing Arjen Robben, Franck Ribery and Mats Hummels over the summer was always going to lead to a period of transition at Allianz Arena.
However, Lucas Hernandez came in for big money from Atletico Madrid, before exciting late loan deals landed Ivan Perisic and Philippe Coutinho.
Niko Kovac will now be expected to mastermind an eighth straight title triumph and challenge for Champions League glory.
This has not proved an easy place to travel to, though, and the visitors may be content with a score draw, which is 13/4 in the RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich odds.
Monchengladbach 1-3 RB LEIPZIG – Timo Werner (3)
BAYERN MUNICH 6-1 Mainz – Benjamin Pavard, David Alaba, Ivan Perisic, Kingsley Coman, Robert Lewandowski, Alphonso Davies
Head-to-head: RB Leipzig 0-3 Bayern Munich, RB Leipzig 0-0 Bayern Munich, Bayern Munich 1-0 RB Leipzig, RB Leipzig 2-1 Bayern Munich
