Bundesliga: Will Underdog RB Leipzig Catch Bayern Munich Off Guard?
This Sunday could be RB Leipzig’s last stand. In the Bundesliga’s crowded race for the Champions League spots, Leipzig currently sits sixth, four points outside of the top four, but only six behind Schalke for second place. Only eight matches remain in the season. (The Bundesliga’s top four teams automatically qualify for the Champions League’s group stage.)
This week, RB Leipzig hosts first-place Bayern Munich (Sunday, 1 p.m. ET). Bayern, which has won the last five Bundesliga titles, ended this year’s race early, and with extreme prejudice. It is now 20 points clear of the field.
