In recent years, matches between RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich have always been a must for all Bundesliga fans. However, the stakes will be higher than usual on Saturday, September 30, as the Bavarians have a score to settle after RB Leipzig beat them in the German Super Cup back in August. The kick-off is scheduled for 6:30 pm local time.

As important is the role the game will play in the title race, of course, as you will see in our RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich tips. The Bavarians are currently the joint league leaders with 13 points while RB Leipzig are in fourth with 12 points. There is a one-point difference between the first and the fifth spot, so there is no room for mistakes. 

Over 2.5 goals

Both RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich have been highly-entertaining teams to watch at the start of the 2023/24 Bundesliga campaign. The Red Bulls have scored 14 goals and conceded four while the Bavarians scored 18 and conceded the same amount.

The two teams have incredible talent in attack, with the likes of Xavi Simons, Lois Openda and Dani Olmo on one side and Harry Kane, Leroy Sane and Jamal Musiala on the other. At the same time, neither team has been too solid defensively against rivals similar in class, and the Bavarians, on top of it, still miss Manuel Neuer through injury.

Going into Saturday’s game, it seems like a fair assumption that there will be a high number of goals, and Bet365 offers 1.40 odds on the over 2.5 goals line. 

Harry Kane to score anytime

Harry Kane has needed no time to adapt to Bundesliga as he has recorded seven goals in five league matches for Bayern so far. However, this is still not enough to be the top goalscorer, as that spot is currently claimed by Stuttgart’s Serhou Guirassy with a staggering 10 strikes.

This should serve as extra motivation for Harry Kane to get on the scoresheet on Saturday. Another factor speaking in his favour is RB Leipzig’s flaky defence. They may have conceded just four goals in the 2023/24 Bundesliga, but the 3-2 loss to Bayer Leverkusen or the 3-2 win over second-tier Wehen in the cup showed that Marco Rose's team is prone to error. In the meantime, Bet365 gives 1.91 odds on Harry Kane scoring anytime.

Both to score and Bayern Munich win

Continuing with our expectations of a high-scoring game, we could go a step further in our RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich tips and say that both teams will score but the win will go to the visitors. Bet365’s odds on this line stand at 4.33.

While the Red Bulls did defeat Bayern in their previous two games, they do not typically fare well against the Bavarians at home. In the last five encounters with Bayern Munich at the Red Bull Arena, they recorded two draws and three losses. The last time they won on home turf against the Bavarians was all the way back in 2018. 

Bayern will not be satisfied with a draw as they risk losing the top spot. However, they can still have problems in defence, and that’s why it is easy to imagine RB Leipzig scoring at least a goal in this match.
