Take a look at the latest form and team news on Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen:
Julian Nagelsmann’s side are gunning for a 10th straight Bundesliga title and come into this game with an 8-point lead at the summit of the league table. After a minor blip that saw them lose 1 and draw another, they have returned to winning ways with consecutive league victories.
The Bavarians have gathered 58 points from 24 games all season, scoring 75 goals and conceding 26. They have 19 wins, 1 draw, and 4 losses and have notoriously won 10 of their 12 home games this season. FIFA Men’s Best Player Robert Lewandowski tops the scoring charts as expected with a league-leading record of 28 goals and 1 assist.
For injuries and suspensions, Bayern Munich will be without Alphonso Davies, Manuel Neuer, Corentin Tolisso, Thomas Muller, and Leon Goretzka as they are sidelined with varying degrees of injuries and illnesses.
Leverkusen are placed third on the Bundesliga table after 24 games. They bounced back from a loss that halted their 4-game winning run with a routine victory at home to Arminia Bielefeld. They are in red-hot scoring form, too, with a goal in every league game since late October.
Bayer have managed a haul of 44 points from 24 matches, with 13 wins, 5 draws, and 6 losses. They have scored an impressive 63 goals and conceded 39. They are the league’s in-form team with 4 wins and 1 loss in their last 5 games. Patrick Schick tops the scoring charts for Leverkusen with 20 goals and 1 assist.
For their team news, Bayer Leverkusen will certainly miss Patrick Schick, Karim Bellarabi, and Andrey Lunev, who are injured. Julian Baumgartlinger and Sadar Azmoun are doubts to feature in the away trip to Munich.
