It's time for the RB Leipzig vs. Bayern Munich live stream, which looks to be the best thing we have to a title decider at this stage of the campaign. Yes, of the eight matches left in the Bundesliga 2020-21 season, this might be one of the biggest.

A win by RB Leipzig, and the team is just a point behind Bayern Munich in the table. Should Bayern Munich win, however, and the defending Bundesliga champs would have a seven-point gap between them and their closest challenger — big enough to cruise to their ninth straight title.

It won't be easy for Bayern Munich, which will be without top scorer Robert Lewandowski, who was injured while on international duty for Poland last week. 

The last time these two sides faced off, it was a 3-3 draw back in Munich. So the return RB Leipzig vs. Bayern Munich match figures to be one to watch this weekend. Here's where you can find a live stream of this Bundesliga battle between the top two teams.
