Leipzig vs Bayern Munich – Betting preview
The decision to replace Domenico Tedesco, who had a disastrous start to the season, with Marco Rose has paid off for Leipzig.
After being close to the relegation zone when he took over, they have only lost one league game under his management and are currently third in the standings.
Despite a disastrous 4-1 home loss to Shakhtar Donetsk early in the season, Leipzig successfully advanced through the Champions League group stage as well. Tedesco was in charge at the time.
They were able to advance thanks to a decisive victory over Shakhtar in the original match and a historic victory over Real Madrid. This victory started a run of six straight victories across all competitions before the break.
If you have been following the Bundesliga live scores over the course of the season, you may have noticed that Die Roten Bullen have not lost in 13 games since the beginning of October, 11 of which have resulted in victories.
Despite Bayern’s strength, the leaders may struggle here because they have the best home record in the Bundesliga, having won six and drawn one of their seven games at the Red Bull Arena!
