Why you should back Bayern Munich
Bayern are the top offensive team in the Bundesliga with 49 goals in 15 contests and have netted at least four goals on six occasions. After amassing 11 goals in 56 matches over his first two seasons with Bayern, midfielder Jamal Musiala has recorded nine in 14 contests this campaign to rank fourth in the league. The 19-year-old's four-game streak came to an end in the team's 2-0 victory against Schalke 04 on Nov. 12, but he notched a pair of assists and is tied for fourth in the Bundesliga with six.
Right behind Musiala in scoring is Serge Gnabry, who has converted eight times over 15 games. The 27-year-old winger reached double digits in goals in each of the first six seasons in the Bundesliga, the last four with Bayern. Gnabry also has been on fire of late, recording six goals in as many matches and four in his last two outings - including a hat trick in the FCB's 6-1 triumph over Werder Bremen on Nov. 8.
Why you should back RB Leipzig
The Red Bulls also possess a potent offense as they are third in Bundesliga with 30 goals. More than half of those tallies will be missing from the lineup on Friday as league leader Christopher Nkunku (12) is out until at least the end of February with a knee injury and Timo Werner (4) is doubtful with a bad ankle. However, Leipzig could receive a boost from Austrian midfielder Konrad Laimer, who is expected to play in his fifth match of the season and first since September.
The 25-year-old Laimer has yet to get on the scoresheet this campaign but recorded four goals and four assists in 26 contests in 2021-22, with one of the tallies coming in a 4-1 loss to Bayern. Hungarian defender Willi Orban is third on the team with three goals while Swedish midfielder Emil Forsberg and Portuguese forward Andre Silva have scored two apiece. Silva tallied in a 3-2 setback against the FCB last season while Forsberg converted versus the club in a 3-3 draw the previous campaign.
