Having lost out on penalties when the sides met in Wednesday’s DFB-Pokal clash, Die Bullen are on offer at 31/4 (8.75) with SportPesa to get their own back by coming out on top just three days later.
That shootout success followed on from a run of three consecutive victories for caretaker manager Jupp Heynckes, who is priced at 4/13 (1.31) to maintain his winning streak here.
The match finished 1-1 after normal time at the Red Bull Arena, and there are odds of 19/4 (5.75) available on them cancelling each other out once again in this one.
While his side may have eventually emerged victorious, Wednesday’s cup clash was undoubtedly Heynckes’ biggest test since he replaced Carlo Ancelotti on a temporary basis.
Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men were unlucky not to go in ahead at the break after being awarded a free-kick for a foul that appeared inside the penalty area, and they still managed to take the lead despite having a man sent off.
However, the champions should find life slightly easier back on home turf, where they have won 19 and lost none of their last 26 Bundesliga fixtures.
Having lost three of their last six matches on the road, the guests would do well to run their opponents as close in this clash as they managed in front of their own fans.
Nevertheless, Leipzig will at least feel optimistic of finding the net considering they have done so in each of their last five games, scoring five in the previous two away games alone and seven in their last six away from home.
All in all, odds of 6/5 (2.20) are well worth backing on Bayern coming out on top in a match that features goals at both ends.
