Prepare for a huge derby
Prepare for a huge derby because the first two teams in the Bundesliga are facing each other on Saturday. Bayern Munich are facing RB Leipzig at the Allianz Arena in a fixture from the 10th round of the competition.
Just two points separate Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig right now. This means that Leipzig will even top the league if they manage to win in the Bavarian capital. That’s a huge motivation for them, but facing Bayern is always a complicated thing to do.
During the week Bayern Munich faced Atletico Madrid in the Champions League. Despite winning their group before this, Bayern still got a point after a 1-1 draw at the Wanda Metropolitano. The German team was close to losing this game, but Thomas Muller equalised from a penalty kick in the 86th minute. The manager Hansi Flick used this opportunity to rest some key players such as Manuel Neuer, Leon Goretzka and Robert Lewandowski. They didn’t even travel to Madrid. Meanwhile Benjamin Pavard and Kingsley Coman remained on the bench.
RB Leipzig are traveling to Munich after a game against Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League. This means that the manager Julian Nagelsmann will have to prepare his team for two tough games in the matter of just few days.
In the Bundesliga RB Leipzig have lost just once since the beginning of the season – against Borussia M’gladbach at the end of October. The club is progressing under the management of Nagelsmann and reaching the Champions League 1/2-finals last season was a proof for this.
That’s the preview we can offer you for the Bundesliga derby between Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig on Saturday. Most likely it’s going to be a pretty good game, so we advise you to watch. Two of the best teams in the German league will face each other at the Allianz Arena.
