Bayern Munich vs Bayer Leverkusen

Bayern Munich

Hosts started this season not strong enough. They faced difficulties playing even against weak teams and already lost several times in different competitions. This season started form defeat against Borussia Dortmund in Super Cup final. Then, Bayern lost points in Bundesliga against not strongest opponents and the last straw before firing Niko Kovac was 5:1 defeat against Eintracht Frankfurt. These and other results shook the coach’s reputation, which affected the club’s decision to change the coach. Ex Bayern player and Joachim Low assistant in national Germany team Hans-Dieter Flick joined the club and already showed amazing performance. The team scored 16 goals in last 4 appearances and saved 4 clean sheets absolutely dominating in all matches. Most important, that Bavarians once again won over the Borussia Dortmund with 4:0 result taking this match under full control. Borussia had only 1 goal attempt and almost didn’t created any dangerous moments.

Bayer Leverkusen

After the questionable start, Bayer Leverkusen stands at 9th place with 6 points away from Bundesliga leader. At the moment they show the strongest form so far with only 1 defeat against Borussia Monchengladbach, which lead the Bundesliga and 4 wins in the last 6 games in different competitions. During the last two round in UEFA Champions League, they won over the Lokomotiv Moscow and Atletico Madrid what gave them a chance to fight for the second place in Group D. Still they have one, toughest match over the Juventus, in Germany. This could be a great opportunity to strengthen their mentality and fight for long-waited CL Playoff. The match against Bayern Munich could be a great preparation playing against Giant club, even if they will lose it.

Absence

Arp J.P., Cuisance, Lucas Hernandez and Niko Sule will miss the next match for Bayern Munich due to injuries. For Bayer Leverkusen, unfortunately, Harvetz, Pohjanpalo, SInkgaven and Weiser will also be missing due to injuries.
