Some interesting individual duels will have a big impact on the outcome of the high octane game between Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig.

Bayern Munich made it difficult for themselves against Hoffenheim on Wednesday but managed to make it seven wins in a row across all competitions. The Bundesliga champions will face their biggest test of 2020 as they gear up to host RB Leipzig in matchday 21 of the Bundesliga.

Die Roten has been ruthless in Ruckrunde, scoring 12 goals in three league games. The German champions have been in solid across all departments on the pitch. Three consecutive victories in the Bundesliga has propelled them to top of the table.

Meanwhile, RB Leipzig has lost all momentum in the Bundesliga. After a strong Hinrunde, it has been the worst possible start for Julian Nagelsmann’s men. They have dropped five points in their league games, making Sunday’s a must-win game.

RB Leipzig and Bayern have contested some close encounters in the last couple of seasons. Sunday is likely to be another close game, where fine margins could be decided by the outcome of individual duels on the pitch. Here are the key battles to watch out in Sunday’s game at Allianz Arena.
