RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich Betting Tips

RB Leipzig are hosting Bayern Munich in the Red Bull Arena, Leipzig on the 11th of September 2021, Saturday at 22:00 IST. The home side has not started pretty well while the champions are slowly getting into their groove, Leipzig given a win could start making this a habit.

Leipzig Form and Team News

Leipzig are the tenth placed team in the Bundesliga presently after three league games. They have won just a solitary game while losing two games surprisingly. Leipzig finished last season as the second best team in the German circuit with 65 points from 34 matches. They are well and truly becoming one of Germany’s best club in terms of the results garnered over the past seasons. They are playing against Bayern Munich in a high voltage clash and they would want to finish on a positive note. The objective of Leipzig is clear from here on, they need to translate their form into a championship winning mindset which is the only aspect of the game which needs a bit more polishing. Once that’s sorted, they’ll become hard to beat.

They have roped in a new manager in the form of Jesse Marsch who has considerable experience in the Bundesliga having managed the Salzburg team before Leipzig. Salzburg was playing some great football under him, and he would hope to replicate that sort of a performance here as well. Silva, Forsberg, Poulsen and co. would be a handful to put in performances of class to win matches and consequently try their hand at winning championships more.

Bayern Munich Form and Team News

Bayern seem a bit late to get into the groove of things after the first three games. They are unbeaten which is as expected, but they have drawn one game which seems a bit hard to understand given the brand of football Bayern is famous for in recent years. The League champions were clearly not at their best in the last leg of the last season, they were just not as dominant as we used to see from them, this also translated to them getting knocked out by PSG in the quarterfinals in the Champions League as well. The new season would bring with it newer challenges and Bayern would be desperate to rediscover their ‘not just win but crush the opponent’ style of play in the course of the season. They are playing against RB Leipzig and they are also not in the best form going into this match, which could make up for a compelling watch to see how Bayern would bounce back.

Hansi Flick has left a legacy that only a few managers can match, Nagelsmann is coming into this team as the new manager and he holds a tremendous amount of reputation from his time at Leipzig. It’s a home coming of sorts for the manager in different colors this time and he would hope to win nonetheless. The impact that Lewandowski had in this team was to be seen in the latter half of last season when he was nursing an unfortunate injury, he is returning and has already hit five goals!! He along with Gnabry and Muller have hit the right notes and are up and running.

Our Tipster’s Angle

Clearly, Bayern is the best team in the German club football circuit and to have a record like what Leipzig have over them shows the one-sidedness of this clash and the predictability factor attached to it. Bayern are favorites to win here because of the recent form and the head to head record. 

Tip 1: Total Goals over 3.5

Bayern Munich even with the form they were in had managed to have a lot of games where the total goals have been over 3.5 goals. Out of the last ten games six games that they have played in the lead up to the this match have had the total goals to be over 3.5. While on the road too, they have had three games in the recent past where the above has been satisfied. One of the last two head to head matches played between the two sides in the recent past also had the total goals to be over 3.5. RB Leipzig in return have had two of the last four games where the condition was met. So in all likelihood, we can safely say this heavy weight clash could well have over 3.5 goals. The odds for that according to the Casumo Sportsbook is 2.08.

Tip 2: Bayern Munich to Win

Five matches Bayern have played against Leipzig in this tournament in the last ten have turned out to have Bayern winning. Overall, Bayern have won seven in the last twelve matches played between both sides. Even though Bayern is in the middle of a tough spell given their transition, they are a different beast altogether when it comes to the Bundesliga and this becomes the telling factor here when the two sides meet on Saturday. The multitime champions are expected to bounce back in style and with the return of form, this statement will be put to full effect cometh the game. According to the Casumo Sportsbook, the odds for Bayern Munich to win the first Bundesliga game against RB Leipzig is 2.23.


The Champions are playing their first toughest against a side which has seen them off on many occasions at least by salvaging a draw in the recent past, they need to win here to ascertain their dominance over the side from Leipzig. Summarizing on a couple of tips from above:

  1. Total Goals over 3.5 @ 2.08
  2. Bayern Munich to win  @ 2.23
