No doubt about the best game on the Match Dy 33 slate of fixtures in the Bundesliga. It comes at the Red Bull Arena as third placed RB Leipzig take on league leaders and defending champions Bayern Munich.

Eleven points clear of fifth placed Bayer Leverkusen, RB Leipzig have achieved Champion's League qualification with something to spare. They ought to be in relaxed mode heading into this game but will still be looking to finish on a high in front of their own fans.

A win for Bayern meanwhile will secure the Bundesliga title with a game to spare. An achievement which looked some way off at Christmas time.

Bayern picked up the points in the reverse of this fixture with a narrow 1-0 success at the Allianz. It was Leipzig who came out on top in the game here last season though. 2-1 the score line on that occasion.

Dayot Upamecano and Yvon Mvogo are out injured for the home side whilst Kevin Kampl is suspended. Manuel Neuer, Javi Martinez and Christian Früchtl are out for Bayern.

RB have been formidable in front of their own fans this season, losing only one of 16 fixtures to date. They have been particularly impressive at the back at home, conceding more than once only twice all season and keeping nine clean sheets.

Bayern have lost only three of 16 on the road, and only one of their last ten, scoring two or more in 12 of 16.

This is a tough place for any side to come, and we fancy RB Leipzig may do enough to secure a point and do their bit to keep the title race alive headed into the final week of the season.

Prediction: RB Leipzig 2 - 2 Bayern Munich
