German Bundesliga action returns this weekend with games scheduled for Friday through to Sunday with all the top teams in action. The top-flight of German football has been uncompetitive in recent seasons, with Bayern Munich dominating the table and winning the title. But things could be different this year, with FCB starting the weekend in second place, four points behind current pace-setters Bayer Leverkusen who visit RB Leipzig on Saturday from 17:30 GMT.

Saturday evening’s game will be before a capacity crowd, with millions more fans watching the action live on television. Neutrals hope for a competitive and exciting game, but which team will end on top and secure three timely points as we approach a crucial stage of the season? RB Leipzig aims to use home advantage to grab the win, while Bayer Leverkusen knows victory would shunt them a step closer to the title. Keep reading as we preview the game and offer our predictions.

Bulls winless in two

RB Leipzig will enjoy the backing of the home crowd for this game but they must ensure supporters have something to cheer following a poor run of form. The Bulls start in fourth place with their stats for the season so far showing ten wins, three draws, and four defeats with 38 goals scored and 18 conceded. They have collected 33 points, which is a dozen shy of their opponents and table-toppers Bayer Leverkusen. Only an emphatic home win would catapult them back into the championship race.

The Bulls won three of their last five games but are winless in their two most recent starts. That drop in standards began with a disappointing 1-1 draw away to Werder Bremen in a game they were the favourites to win. Leipzig opened the scoring that day but was eventually pegged back by a dogged and determined opponent. Worse followed as RB slipped to defeat in their only other game played this year, losing 1-0 at home to Eintracht Frankfurt. Again, Leipzig was the favourite to win that game but ended empty-handed.

Leverkusen leads the way

Bayer Leverkusen often begins a Bundesliga season as one of the teams expected to challenge Bayern Munich, only to fall flat and fail to put pressure on the champions. Could this campaign be different? There’s still a lot of football to be played between now and the finish line, but Leverkusen are currently holding their own and lead the way after 17 games played in the German top flight. Their stats show 14 wins and three draws, making them the only unbeaten team in the division and one of only a select few teams in Europe yet to lose a game. Could we be looking at an invincible season?

Leverkusen has 45 points on the board, which is four more than its nearest rivals and defending champion Bayern Munich. They trip to Leipzig on a strong run of form, winning each of their last three games, including an eye-catching win over FC Augsburg last weekend. A tricky road trip was expected, and Bayer was made to work by their hosts, but they eventually found a way through when Palacios scored in stoppage time at the end of the game. With the match headed for a goalless finish, the winner came with 94 minutes on the clock.

RB Leipzig vs Bayer Leverkusen prediction

RB Leipzig is the home team and will be eager to make that advantage count. They have a squad that’s good enough to win this game and throw themselves back into the mix for the title and a top-four finish, securing Champions League football for next season. Fans of Bayern Munich also hope for a home win in this game. But Leipzig’s recent form is poor, and they must improve to stand any chance of beating the league leaders.

Bayer Leverkusen has been a breath of fresh air to the Bundesliga this season, helping to shake things up and challenge the ultra-dominant Bayern Munich. An away win at the home of a title rival would be another feather in the cap for Leverkusen, proving they have the stomach for a fight and can hold their position between now and the finish line.
