BAY vs LEP Dream11 Team Prediction: Bayern Munich welcome RB Leipzig to the Allianz Arena in a top of the table clash in the Bundesliga. Just two points separate these sides with the home side looking to extend their lead and the away side looking to potentially overtake their rivals in the table. Bayern has been impressive as usual with 7 wins out of 9 in the league. They only have an uncharacteristic 4-1 loss to Hoffenheim and a 1-1 draw to Werder Bremen where they haven’t picked up all three points. They also beat Borussia Dortmund this season and had an impressive 5-0 win over Frankfurt. Leipzig, on the other hand, were on top of the table at the beginning but a costly 1-0 loss to Monchengladbach and a 1-1 draws away to Frankfurt and Bayer Leverkusen has seen them drop to second place in the table. They registered an impressive 4-3 win over Istanbul Basaksehir in midweek which will undoubtedly give them a boost going into this game.

Corentin Tolisso and Leon Goretzka will start in the double pivot behind Serge Gnabry and Thomas Muller.
