Arjen Robben is pushing for victory against RB Leipzig, as he wants Bayern Munich to end the year at the top of the table.
The Bavarian outfit welcome the newcomers to the Allianz Arena, who sit second behind Bayern on goal difference. A loss will see Leipzig go top of the table.
And Robben asserts Bayern are keen to beat Leipzig, who have taken the Bundesliga by storm this year.
“We are looking forward to this game,” the winger told Goal. “We want to win the match and complete the first half of the season in a good way to enter the holidays as autumn champions.”
“It’s very, very difficult to predict [if Leipzig can reach the Champions League],” the Dutchman added. “We have to bide our time.
“Until now they have done very well. Nobody expected that – especially as a promoted team. That’s a huge compliment, especially for the coach.
“You already see his influence [on the team]. Last season he did well with Ingolstadt and now you see his influence again. That’s nice to see.”
The Bundesliga will pause for a month-long winter break following the 16th round of matches this midweek.
