Bundesliga preview and tips: Red Bull Leipzig can damage Bayern Munich’s title aspirations

RB Leipzig might be out of the title race but Saturday’s visit to Bayern Munich could yet have a huge say in who takes the Bundesliga crown. Football pundit Paul Bathurst assesses this massive game.

Both Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund managed to win last weekend with neither side daring to slip up as the Bundesliga season draws to a dramatic close.
Thomas Tuchel's side easily dispatched relegation candidates Schalke with Serge Gnabry netting a brace in their 6-0 win.

Bayern will be under no illusions about the task ahead this weekend. They did not need to get out of second gear to beat a very poor Schalke side last Saturday, but an in-form Red Bull Leipzig are a different proposition entirely.

Leipzig have won six of their previous seven Bundesliga games which has propelled them into being heavy favourites for Champions League qualification.
Suggested bet: RB Leipzig +1.25 Asian Handicap
Alongside Leipzig, Freiburg and Union Berlin have had phenomenal seasons and those three teams are battling it out for third and fourth which would provide the huge reward of Europe's most prestigious competition for next season.
A win at Allianz Arena for Leipzig would guarantee third spot in the Bundesliga, while even just a point would be a huge result.
Thomas Tuchel is still without Dayot Upamecano, Alphonso Davies and Lucas Hernandez in defence. Eric Choupo-Moting is also still unavailable, whilst Yann Sommer is a doubt in the goalkeeper position due to a stomach bug.
With Manuel Neuer still recovering from a broken leg, this is a major concern for Bayern and their third choice GK Sven Ulreich may be forced into the starting XI.
Leipzig have an almost complete squad to choose from with the exception being long-term absentee Peter Gulacsi. Marco Rose will hope his side can utilise the pace of Timo Werner to cause problems against the high defensive line of Bayern Munich.
Bayern must be wary considering they have dropped points to the likes of Mainz, Koln and Leverkusen in their last eight games. A highly motivated Leipzig will be no easy task despite home advantage, and should Yann Sommer indeed be unavailable the away side are likely to smell blood.
Leipzig at +1.25 on the Asian Handicap is an appealing bet, as should Bayern win by a single goal this bet would still provide some profit.
Suggested bet: RB Leipzig +1.25 Asian Handicap
