This season, Bayern Munich are looking to join a very exclusive club. If they win the league title again, it will be their tenth in a row – a feat achieved by no team in the history of Europe’s top five leagues.
But one of the main challengers to the throne is RB Leipzig, who have emerged as a real threat over the past few years. It ought to be an exciting match.

RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich Form Guide
Die Roten Bullen have not made an ideal start to the campaign. On the opening day of the season, they fell to a surprise 1-0 defeat away at Mainz.
They managed to bounce back with an emphatic 4-0 victory over Stuttgart, but this was followed by another 1-0 loss, this time to Wolfsburg.
The visitors, on the other hand, have wasted little time in laying down a marker. After a 1-1 draw on the opening day against Borussia Monchengladbach, they picked up wins against Koln and Hertha Berlin, as well as a 12-0 (yep, TWELVE NIL) victory in the DFB Pokal against Bremen SV.
It’s no secret who their biggest threat is. Robert Lewandowski has scored in his last 16 games at club level, and will be looking to extend that run.

RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich Prediction
This is a fixture that could have a huge bearing on the table by the end of the season. The result of this one could be crucial.
Jesse Marsch’s side will be hoping to recover from their poor start, and there will be no better way to do so than against the reigning champions.
However, Bayern Munich are quite comfortably the strongest side in the league. And, having won their last two games by an aggregate score of 17-0, it’s tough to see them losing this one.
Prediction: RB Leipzig 1-3 Bayern Munich
