RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich Match Preview
Julian Nagelsmann is so far showing he was worth the lengthy wait by RB Leipzig to become their manager, but he faces much his biggest test to date in his new job on Saturday.
Still only 32, Nagelsmann was appointed by Leipzig a year before he actually joined them from Hoffenheim this summer and he has won four out of four since his move, his team averaging three goals per game in the Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal.
Timo Werner scored a hat-trick against Borussia Monchengladbach just before the international break, but the Germany international striker and his team-mates will find it difficult to retain their 100% record against their country’s dominant club.
Bayern, who won 3-0 against Leipzig in the DFB-Pokal final in May, were surprisingly held to a season-opening 2-2 draw at home to Hertha Berlin but have subsequently put a total of nine goals past Schalke and Mainz to sit just off the early pace in the table.
While Werner has made a flying start to the campaign with five goals in three games, Bayern’s Robert Lewandowski has actually gone one better and it will be interesting to see if either of these red-hot strikers can outshine the other this weekend.
Ultimately, despite the abundant promise Nagelsmann is showing as a manager and the terrific start he has made with Leipzig, Bayern continue to be the team to beat in the Bundesliga and are trusted to show their quality by shattering their opponents’ 100% record.
