Date: on the 19th of December, 2018 (Wednesday)
Match start: 20:30 (GMT+1)
The central match of the 16th round of Bundesliga will present us the fight of the 3rd and the 4th teams of the championship – Bayern that is desperately trying to win back the huge lag in 9 points from Borussia Dortmund and Red Bulls that are coming to Allianz Arena.
Leipzig is dreaming of gaining the victory and approaching the top-3 but now it is more important to look at what is going on behind the team where almost 5 teams are trying to catch the Bulls.
The team from Munich is now not interested in any result than the victory; a lot has happened at the beginning of the season and they have let Dortmund go too far. That is why they have to work hard.
Mass media is publishing less news concerning the possible dismissal of Niko Kovač in December as the team has tasted the champion’s stability at last: 3 last matches in frames of Bundesliga were won with the total score 9:1. You have to agree that this score resembles that terrible Bayern we are used to.
Leipzig has very intense schedule: last Thursday it was the Europa League, last Sunday it was the match against Mainz and on Wednesday – away match in Munich.
3 matches for 7 days are rather difficult experience for the team that doesn’t possess any special stability in form of long bench.
And in December the Bulls don’t demonstrate bright football: the physical and gaming status of Timo Werner and the absence of Forsberg influence the team.
Bearing in mind all that was mentioned above we are sure that the hosts will win.
