Prediction on game
On January 20, Red Bull Arena (Leipzig) will host the match of the 16th round of the German Bundesliga, in which RB Leipzig will compete with Bayern Munich. The battle will start at 20:30 CET.
The club has got a rather short history – in fact, the billionaire Dietrich Mateschitz, who has recently died, created it from scratch. The combination of investment, management and selection made it possible to realize the ambitions well. To tell the truth, “the Red Bulls” are not liked, but they are considered to be one of the strongest teams in Germany. However, that does not cancel the failures at the starts of both the previous and current draws. They came out of those complicated situations, which happened in 2021 and 2022, in the same way. Domenico Tedesco was the first who solved the problem – moreover, he became a hero, saving the season and even winning the first serious trophy, the DFB Cup. Then, when a new start was failed, the management said goodbye to him without any delay and regrets. And Marco Rose had saved the situation both on the international and inner arena by the pause for the World Cup. Nowadays, there is a new intrigue: what will the performance of RB Leipzig look like after the higher mentioned long pause?
The team was eager to work (and, in fact, bought) with a young wunderkind of “the coaching society” to keep the team at the level of his predecessor. However, there was a real trouble with “Hansi” Flick in 2020. Nagelsmann almost failed at his first attempt, winning only one of the serious trophies – the Meisterschale. But everyone is used to the 1st place in the Bundesliga. In this season, “the Record Masters” are leading, but at the same time they are criticized. There was a defeat in the match with Monchengladbach; moreover, it happened after the lost to this club in the previous cycle! To tell the truth, 10 victories in 15 matches – that is not the level of “the Star of the South” (even though it won the battles with Inter and Barcelona in the Champions League easily). Then Neuer managed to break his leg while skiing, and, as a result, the team was feverishly trying to replace him for weeks.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
Bayern Munich has got 4 wins in a row in the head-to-head matches. Moreover, it won with a 5-3 score in the Super Cup this summer.
Bookmakers believe in Bayern. At the same time, Rose and his RB Leipzig may make a surprise – thus, we bet on the hosts of the arena with “a +1 goal handicap” (odd: 1.68).
