Following an international break for the FIFA World Cup qualifiers, club football is back and Germany's Bundesliga kicks back off with a tantalizing tie between the league's top two teams. Don't miss a moment with our RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich live stream guide.

Today's visitors Bayern Munich are chasing a record ninth consecutive Bundesliga title and currently sit at the top of the table, four points clear of hosts RB Leipzig.

Die Roten have seemingly recovered from an uncharacteristic blip in form in recent weeks after a shock 3-3 draw at Bundesliga strugglers Arminia and a defeat against Eintracht Frankfurt, one of only three losses this campaign.

Hans-Dieter Flick's side have got back to winning ways with four wins from their last four in the league, including a huge 4-2 Der Klassiker win against rivals Borussia Dortmund, while netting 16 goals across those four outings. FCB also knocked Lazio of Serie A out of the Champions League with a 6-2 aggregate score to advance to the quarter-finals.

With Dortmund seemingly out of this year's title race, today's hosts RB Leipzig appear to be the only team within catching distance of Bayern Munich this season. The Red Bulls are unbeaten in their last eight league games coming into this tie. A win today would put them within one point of the defending champs in the Bundesliga table.

Julian Nagelsmann's side will not be distracted by the prospect of upcoming Champions League football after his team were eliminated by Liverpool of the Premier League. With Bayern playing again on Wednesday, it's possible that the Bavarians will have one eye on that competition and risk divided attention causing a slip-up today.

The last time these two sides met in the league it was a closely fought match that ended in a 3-3 stalemate. Regardless of the result, it's set to be an entertaining game.
