Match details

RB Leipzig v Bayern Munich


Red Bull Arena, Leipzig

21st January, 01:00 a.m.


The action in the German Bundesliga returns tonight for the first time since the World Cup as the defending champions and league leaders travel to Leipzig in what promises to be a mouth-watering clash.

Julian Nagelsmann, the former RB Leipzig and current Bayern Munich manager, would be looking to start their season post-break with a win on his account and move a step closer towards another Bundesliga title. Their star Senegalese forward Sadio Mane is still recovering from his injury and won’t be available for this match. Even after injuries to some of their key players, Bayern Munich are still the favourites to win this match.

RB Leipzig, on the other hand, would be looking to dent the title ambitions of the Munich-based club and would love to capture all three points at home, taking a step further towards the title race and closing the gap between the league leaders and them.
