German league leaders face third-placed Leipzig in Bundesliga on Friday night.

Bayern Munich has unarguably been the most dominant team in the Bundesliga and around Europe. Still, RB Leipzig’s quick ascent from the fifth division to the Bundesliga suggests that the club has emerged as the most popular team in the German League.

And only a select few clubs have engaged in competition; Borussia Mönchengladbach were the first challenger in the 1970s, and subsequently, Borussia Dortmund emerged as a new candidate who now regularly confronts Bayern. Leipzig, however, has become a fresh entrant. And in 2016, Die Roten Bullen paid their maiden visit to Allianz Arena, where they had their first encounter.

Since Leipzig has produced so many players of this calibre, their competition with Bayern has intensified. The momentous occasion occurred in 2018 when Leipzig was suffering a disastrous season and their upcoming game was against Munich.

However, the team pulled off a stunning victory, winning the game 2-1 as Leipzig came from behind thanks to Timo Werner’s winning goal.

And as the years have gone on, both sides have experienced many tight situations, which has increased the intensity of their matches because both clubs’ chances are equal in winning the matches. Leipzig and Dortmund are now the new challengers in the league that can break Bayern Munich’s hegemony.

Regardless Bayern has maintained its form in the league and below we look at their head-to-head matches.
