Match status: 2019-20 Bundesliga - Matchweek 21
Kick-off:
Venue: Allianz Arena (Munich)

Hansi Flick's men will be looking to maintain their newly-achieved lead at the top of the table after they leapfrogged their Saxony-based competitors to the spot following a 3-1 win over Mainz last weekend.

The league leaders have enjoyed a scintillating run of form of late, registering six consecutive wins in the league, and continued their momentum in the DFB Cup where they beat Hoffenheim in a seven-goal thriller on Thursday.

Meanwhile, Julian Nagelsmann's side will be aiming to get their title charge back on track as two draws and a defeat have seen them drop to second place in the league standings.

They were previously on a 13-game unbeaten streak in all competitions before a shock defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt in a Bundesliga clash last month started a winless run of games (3) for them.

Bayern Munich vs RB Leipzig Team News

There was a time earlier in the season when many felt that Bayern would struggle to contend for the Bundesliga title, especially after back-to-back defeats to Borussia Monchengladbach and Bayer Leverkusen.

However, with many of their rivals having struggled for consistency, a run of six successive victories has resulted in Bayern now sitting at the top of the standings.

As many as 23 goals have been scored during that period, with Hans Flick likely to be encouraged that Robert Lewandowski has only contributed six of those efforts.

Bayern have benefited from the break in Champions League action - a competition which is due to recommence in February with the German giants taking on Chelsea.

However, Flick and his players will feel that three more victories will give the club considerable breathing space between themselves and the chasing pack during a hectic period.

As for Leipzig, Julian Nagelsmann will acknowledge that this is probably the team's biggest game of the season, particularly after their recent poor run of form.

While just one point has been registered from league games against Eintracht Frankfurt and Monchengladbach, the defeat at the former in the DFB-Pokal would have hurt Nagelsmann as he bids to win some silverware.

Nevertheless, it has presented the young head coach with an opportunity to discover more about the character of his squad at a time when many of them are being linked with bigger clubs.

Timo Werner has failed to add to his 23 goals for the season in his last three outings, while Dayot Upamecano has not helped Leipzig to a clean sheet in his most recent half-a-dozen matches.

Nagelsmann will be looking to both players to rediscover their previous dominant form ahead of the showdown with Bayern and the upcoming Champions League double-header with Tottenham Hotspur, games which could ultimately determine whether the campaign is regarded as a success or failure.

Bayern Munich vs RB Leipzig Predictions

Sunday's encounter at the Allianz Arena promises to be an exciting top-of-the-table clash not only for the fact that both Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig are goal-hungry but also because of the consequences that will change the way the table looks in the business end of the season.

The two title contenders have 111 goals in their 40 games combined this season but their history suggests that one cannot expect more than three goals from this clash.

Their tight battle for the Bundesliga crown also means that a replay of their score-line from their first meeting of the season may not be too much of an underestimation.
