Leipzig Team News and Latest Form
Leipzig are the only Bundesliga side with all three wins after the opening three rounds, mostly thanks to the fact that they opened scoring in each of those games.

The hosts take on the defending champions Bayern Munich in a tilt that could have significance at the end of the campaign, although Leipzig won only one of the last six Bundesliga H2H duels (W1, D1, L4). Leipzig’s recent two Bundesliga home wins were by the identical 2-1 result, and that sole victory over Bayern also came via a 2-1 scoreline.
Timo Werner scored in the first 45 minutes in all three Bundesliga games so far, bagging the opener in two. Leipzig’s three Bundesliga matches have seen a total of four goals scored in the final 15 minutes.
