Bayern Munich can clinch their seventh straight Bundesliga title when they play Red Bull Leipzig away in the league at Red Bull Arena Leipzig.
BAY vs RBL Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Red Bull Leipzig are having a good season. Challenging for the Bundesliga may not be possible at this moment, but they have improved a lot this season and sit 3rd on the table, just five points behind Borussia Dortmund in second.
With the Yellow Army suffering from a dip in form, there is still a chance that Leipzig may still finish second in Bundesliga. That would be a significant improvement for a side which was playing in the divisions league not long ago.
Bundesliga meanwhile will be aiming to wrap up the title this weekend. They face a tricky test in Eintracht Frankfurt on the last weekend, so the Bavarian will not want to take the title fight till the last weekend. A win here will confirm their seventh consecutive league title.
The Bundesliga game will be played between Red Bull Leipzig and Bayern Munich at Red Bull Arena Leipzig, in Leipzig, Saxony, Germany. The ground has a capacity of 42,959.
The game will start at 07:00 PM (IST), on Saturday, May 11.
