Bundesliga Returns with an “Epic Clash” as Bayern take on RB Leipzig

With the International Break in place, club football came but after 2 long weeks, Bundesliga returns with an absolute thriller as the Bavarian giants, Bayern Munich take over challengers, RedBull Leipzig. The match will be hosted at the Allianz Arena in Munich.
