Julian Nagelsmann opted to play both of his January signings Dani Olmo and Angelino from the start, but it was a difficult first half for Leipzig, with Dayot Upamecano & Co. having to be at their best to stop Bayern from putting the ball in the back of the net.
The second half painted a very different picture. Marcel Sabitzer fired over the top with a golden chance very soon after the restart and RBL looked a lot more dangerous throughout. Timo Werner had the best opportunitiy of the match, but he failed to test Manuel Neuer with his first-time finish. Péter Gulácsi still had to be at his very best to keep out Leon Goretzka towards the end, however, to ensure Die Roten Bullen left Munich with a valuable point.
40': Robert Lewandowski gets a shot away at the back post, but Dayot Upamecano is there to clear the ball off the line.
