In a huge clash at the Red Bull Arena, RB Leipzig and Bayern Munich met for a game with potentially huge permutations in the Bundesliga title race. A win for Bayern would have seen them clinch the Bundesliga title, while Leipzig, although with nothing to play for with 3rd place secure, were out to ruin Bayern’s title hopes and give Borussia Dortmund a chance to win the title on the final match day.
Of course, neither side was able to find the back of the net other than a controversial Goretzka goal, and so both sides left the game wondering if they could have done more and taken all three points. In this tactical analysis of a fascinating game, I’ll look at Leipzig’s versatile build-up play, Thiago’s role in the game and how RB Leipzig were able to hinder Bayern’s build-up play for large parts of the game and secure a point.
