Two of Germany’s top three teams would be locking horns in this early season thriller. This game would also see two of the country’s brightest coaches go head to head as they look to get an edge over the other this early in the season.
Leipzig has emerged from the bottom of German football to become one of the country’s biggest sides thanks to a solid business model that doesn’t discriminate against a player’s origin.
The home side comes here top of the league table after collecting the maximum points available this season. They would be kick-starting their Champions League campaign later next week too so they would be looking for a morale-boosting result in this game.
Bayern Munchen started their campaign with a 2-2 draw at home against Hertha Berlin and that has been their only dropped points so far this season.
The Bavarians are currently 2nd on the league table and would be keen to knock the league leaders off their perch in this game.
This season is looking more likely to become a three-horse race with these teams alongside Borussia Dortmund fighting for the league crown, so none of them would want to lose here.
