RB Leipzig are the only Bundesliga team with their 100% record still intact, partly thanks to a quick-starting approach that has involved them netting the opener, and leading at half-time, in all three games so far.
However, with both teams scoring in six of their last seven competitive victories, Leipzig don’t always make things easy for themselves.
Here, the hosts face defending champions Bayern Munich in a game that could have significance come the end of the season, although Leipzig have won just one of the six previous Bundesliga H2Hs.
That sole victory came via a 2-1 scoreline – the same score seen in Leipzig’s last two Bundesliga home wins.
Bayern are unbeaten this Bundesliga campaign, and last lost a top-flight game back in February.
Their first away league match this season ended in a confident 3-0 victory that saw them leading at half-time, and continued a trend that has seen five of their last seven away league wins arrive by at least a three-goal margin.
It’s no surprise then that ahead of this round Bayern possess a joint-league high average of 4.67 total goals per match, although three of the last four top flight H2Hs have produced under 2.5.
Players to watch: Timo Werner (RBL) has scored before half-time in all three Bundesliga games so far, netting the opener in two.
Robert Lewandowski has also opened the scoring twice this league campaign. He’s scored in all three league games so far, and netted Bayern’s first five Bundesliga goals of the season.
