Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen will face each other in the Bundesliga this week. The match at the Allianz Arena is slated to kick off at 7:30pm UK time and promises to be a cracking game of football.

Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich are at the top of the Bundesliga table at the moment with 68 points from 29 matches, seven points ahead of second-placed RB Leipzig. The German giants will head into the match against Bayer on the back of a 3-2 victory over VfL Wolfsburg away from home in the league.

The build-up to the game on Tuesday evening, from Bayern’s perspective, has been overshadowed by the decision of head coach Hansi Flick to announce in public that he wants to leave at the end of the season. Flick told Sky Germany that he has told the club that he wants to leave, but Bayern are not happy that he wen public with it instead of waiting for them.

Team News:

Star striker Robert Lewandowski is back in full training, but it remains to be seen if he starts on Tuesday evening.

Bayer Leverkusen

Bayer Leverkusen were never in the race for the Bundesliga title this season, but they remain in the hunt for the Champions League places. Hannes Wolf’s side are sixth in the Bundesliga table at the moment with 47 points from 29 matches, six points behind fourth-placed Eintracht Frankfurt.

Die Werkself’s side will head into the match against Bayern on the back of a 3-0 win against Koln at home in the league. It followed a goalless draw with Hoffenheim away from home in the Bundesliga.

Team News:

Patrik Schick is likely to keep his place in the Bayer starting lineup.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Bayern Munich have scored 83 goals in 29 Bundesliga matches this season.
  • Bayer Leverkusen have scored 48 goals in 29 Bundesliga matches this season.
  • Bayern Munich have conceded 38 goals in 28 Bundesliga games this campaign.
  • Bayer Leverkusen have conceded 32 goals in 29 Bundesliga games this campaign.
  • Bayern Munich beat Bayer Leverkusen 2-1 in December 2020.

Conclusion

Bayern are a good team and will not make it easy for Bayern, who recently went out of the Champions League and have been conceding more goals than they should. However, the defending Bundesliga champions should still have enough to pick up all three points from the encounter.
