Worth mentioning: RB Leipzig lost their last BundesLiga game and thus ended their nine game unbeaten streak. On the other hand, the team drew in the two games prior to that defeat, so are without a victory in three consecutive outings. Four of the last five matches involving RB Leipzig produced over 2,5 goals and saw both teams scoring, with the only exception the meeting with Bayern.
The Bavarians are unbeaten in seventeen games in a row at the domestic stage, with only Liverpool able to snatch a victory in their Champions League meeting during that period. Bayern’s attack have been particularly irregular lately and you can expect anything of them, one game struggling to score but finally find one to eventually win or escape loss, and the other trashing their opponents by scoring three, four or even more.
