With Liverpool winning the PL Title in a record time, we will switch our focus towards more interesting title fights abroad. Spain, Italy and Germany have great competitions to watch this season, with all title favourites struggling against bald challengers. This weekend, we glance over Germany where Bayern München is back on track for the eighth straight title.

It was only three months ago when Eintracht Frankfurt ran rampant over a crippled Bayern München: 5-1. The dynasty appeared to be finally over. The title race was more open than the entire decade before that, with no less than nine teams within five points of each other. Three months later, it is as if all this never happened.

The biggest challenger has not come out of the winterstop well. Red Bull Leipzig now has to travel to the lions den to face her greatness. If they succeed to best Bayern, the title race is all open. Would they fail, we fear the season will go in the history books not much different than those of the last decade. So let’s take a close up and see what the odds are for these teams!

Bayern München Red Bull Leipzig Predictions

After the 5-1 defeat, Bayern sacked Niko Kovac and promoted assistant manager Hansi Flick to the interim manager. After a bumpy start, the Bayern machine started rolling under Flick and has picked up a pace that other teams just can’t keep up with. The goal count for last six matches (all won) is 23-3. The line up stabilised, the team got fit again and found their form (and luck)

But as good as Lewandowski has become, Timo Werner from RB Leipzig has no trouble keeping up. It is a shame his team has come out of the winterstop not in the best shape to support their topscorer, drawing against Borussia Mönchengladbach and losing their last two matches before that. RB Leipzig has however attracted Manchester City player Angeliño for the rest of the season on the last day of the transfer market. Will his addition be enough to turn the tide? It is gonna be a great match to watch for sure!
