Bayern Munich vs Leipzig
Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig will face off in the DFL Supercup on Saturday. The match will be played at the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany and will be a rematch of the 2022 version of the tournament.
Bayern beat Leipzig 5-3 last year to clinch their 10th Super Cup trophy and will be confident of a similar result this year as well.
Leipzig finished the 2022-23 Bundesliga season in third place, behind Bayern and Borussia Dortmund. They will be looking to avenge their defeat in last year’s Super Cup but it will be difficult against a solid Bayern side.
The match is sure to be an entertaining one, as both teams have attacking players who can entertain and score goals. Here GOAL brings you everything you need to know about how to watch, including TV channel, streaming details and more.
Following his skiing accident last December, legendary goalkeeper Manuel Neuer is expected to be absent from Bayern’s lineup until after the international break in early September. It seems likely that Sven Ulreich will once again be the one called upon to take his place between the posts.
For Saturday’s Super Cup tie, Thomas Muller, Eric Choupo-Moting, and Gabriel Marusic have all been confirmed as unavailable.
Meanwhile, new recruit Guerreiro will have to wait a bit longer for his debut, as a calf strain is keeping him off the field. Their latest signing Harry Kane will be hoping to make his debut very soon as well.
Bayern predicted XI: Ulrich; Pavard, De Ligt, Kim, Davies; Laimer, Kimmich, Goretzka; Sane, Gnabry, Coman
