RB Leipzig face Bayern Munich at Red Bull Arena on Sunday, March 18. Here’s all the info you need to watch.
Bayern Munich have a 20-point lead over Schalke as they chase their record sixth straight Bundesliga title. With eight games remaining, Bayern need two more wins to clinch another championship. On Saturday, RB Leipzig host Bayern at the Red Bull Arena. After finishing second last season, Leipzig have had a disappointing season, currently sitting sixth, four points out of a Champions League spot. However, a loss on Sunday could bump Leipzig out of a European spot next season.
Leipzig were disappointing last weekend, playing to a scoreless draw against Stuttgart. Ralph Hasenhüttl has struggled to balance games in the Bundesliga and Europa League. Since Europa League resumed, Leipzig have failed to win a Bundesliga game, picking up only two points and dropping from second to sixth in the table. Timo Werner and Emil Forsberg have both struggled. Werner leads Leipzig with 10 goals but has not scored in his last seven games. Hasenhüttl needs his two offensive stars to perform if Leipzig are going to remain in the hunt for a Champions League spot.
Bayern have won 12 of their last 13 games since their last loss in November. Jupp Heynckes’ side has been dominant in their last two games, winning 4-0 and 6-0. Robert Lewandowski continues to be dominant for Bayern, scoring a Bundesliga best 23 goals this season, including three last week against Hamburg. With Arjen Robben a question mark for Sunday’s game, Heynckes will likely start James Rodriguez on the wing. After a slow start to the season and dealing with injuries, Rodriguez has scored four goals and added six assists.
The Bundesliga match between RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich will be broadcast online. Live streaming is available on Fox Sports Go, which you can access with your cable or satellite subscription, either online or through their app.

In the first game, Bayern and Leipzig were tied 1-1 after 120 minutes, with Bayern advancing on penalties. Four days later, Bayern again won, this time 2-0 after first-half goals from Lewandowski and Rodriguez.
