Bundesliga Predictions: Leipzig vs Bayern Munchen

Usually we tend to predict one match a week, but gazing over the Bundesliga we noticed something interesting: Bayern München has to gain four points on Red Bull Leipzig.

Usually we tend to predict one match a week, but gazing over the Bundesliga we noticed something interesting: Bayern München has to gain four points on Red Bull Leipzig. This is interesting due to two reasons: it shows the success of the Red Bull approach (let’s not forget that just ten years ago the club played Oberliga Nordost) and the slow degeneration of the Bayern dominance in germany. Leipzig plays this weekend an away game against Eintracht Frankfurt, if Leipzig wins that wins that Bayern is seven points behind when their game starts against Schalke ‘04. The pressure will be on. Seven points at this stage of the season is a serious gap.

In this article we ask ourselves three questions: what is the prediction of Eintracht Frankfurt versus Red Bull Leipzig? What is the prediction of Bayern Munich versus Schalke ‘04? And should we start betting on RB Leipzig winning the liga, or is that too early?

Eintracht Frankfurt – Red Bull Leipzig Predictions

Eintracht Frankfurt ain’t no pushover. They made it all the way to the semi-finals of the Europa League last year, where they met their superior in Chelsea. In 2018 they won the DFB-Pokal after 30 years of no prizes. And this season, they survived the group stage of the EL again. Guess who they will be facing in the next round? Leipzig’s brother in sponsor: Red Bull Salzburg. The Bundesliga is not where Frankfurt usually shines though. Holding a current 11th position and ending 7th last season. Even after losing Sebastian Haller, the team is still scoring plenty. The position in the Bundesliga is mainly due to conceding too many goals. And if there is one thing RB Leipzig is doing well this season it’s scoring goals. For the first time this season Werner has surpassed Lewandowski as the topscorer of the league. Our prediction is that Frankfurt manages to score, but Leipzig will simply score some more.

Bayern München – Schalke ‘04 Predictions

Schalke, Schalke, Schalke; why don’t you trust yourself with being number one? Bayern München is the over-confident, cocky club that assumes they will be the number one before the season has started. With Schalke, it’s quite the opposite. And more often than not, this Calimero attitude is what they take on the pitch against Bayern München. Resulting in 5 wins for the club from Munich in the last 5 encounters. Not surprisingly, we are not advising you to bet on Schalke. Recent history shows Bayern kept a clean sheet in their last game home game, which they do more often, having kept 10 clean sheets in their last 20 home games. Schalke last failed to score away in the league 5 games ago and have missed the net in 4 of their last 20 away league games.

Bundesliga outright winner prediction

This is a hard one. Last season Dortmund was in the same position Leipzig is in now and we were certain Bayern would win the title, which they did. The difference is that Leipzig is a club with a plan. They are going to win a title sooner or later. Everything the club has done since Red Bull has taken over has been with this goal. If the gap gets to seven points (this weekend or later), a bet on Leipzig would not be as weird as it might sound!
