The international break is over and domestic football is returning all across the globe, and that’s especially important in the main elite league in Europe. The German Bundesliga is a league that’s started off like a house on fire and we anticipate that trend will continue between now and the end of the campaign. This weekend, arguably the biggest game of the season thus far will take place as Bayer Leverkusen host reigning champions Bayern Munich.

Bayer Leverkusen

Bayer Leverkusen have spent years on the outside looking in at the title picture and even though there’s no guarantee they’ll be able to get over the hump in the next few months, they’ve started off nicely. They’ve got a great balance within their first team of experience and youth and as we all know, they’re more than capable of producing world class talent – which makes this game, against the juggernauts of the top tier, all the more fascinating.

Team News

Tapsoba, Fosu-Mensah and Baumgartlinger are all big misses for the hosts with Andrich serving the final game of his three-match suspension.

Bayern Munich

The art of staying focused in a competition you’ve dominated for so many years can prove to be difficult, and that’s what Bayern Munich are facing in yet another season in which they’re the clear favourites to take home the gold. They’ve still got an elite squad, elite manager and everything they need to succeed both domestically and in Europe – but if they aren’t careful, they could fall into a similar trap to Juventus.

Team News

Tolisso is back in training after a calf injury, Pavard is on the final game of his suspension and Ulreich is out through a knee injury – although he wasn’t expected to start regardless.

Factors to Consider

  • Bayern and Leverkusen are currently sat in 1st and 2nd place in Bundesliga.
  • Leverkusen have won five and lost one of their last six games.
  • Bayern have won five and lost one of their last six games.
  • Leverkusen have scored 17 goals and conceded six in their last six games.
  • Bayern have scored 23 goals and conceded four in their last six games.

Conclusion

A fixture like this tends to go off like fireworks in a division like the Bundesliga and we think that’s exactly what’s going to happen on Sunday. We think the hosts are going to come forward and really get in Bayern’s face, refusing to be intimidated by their obscene star power. It’s going to be a back and forth affair with fans barely having a second to breathe and in the end, the pair will share the points in a 2-2 epic.
