Bayern Munich vs Bayer Leverkusen
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 15 September 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Allianz Arena, Munich.
Bayer Leverkusen got off to a nightmare start to the new Bundesliga campaign losing to both Borussia Monchengladbach and Wolfsburg in two opening rounds.
They’ll have a very tough task (not to say a mission impossible) to rebound from such failures as the competitions gets back in action after the international break given they are to travel to Munich to take on the reigning champions Bayern on Saturday afternoon.
The Bavarians expectedly picked up two wins at the start. Even though Niko Kovac’s men had issues breaking Hoffenheim’s resistance on the opening day at Allianz Arena, they look quite impressive at the moment and will come into this as massive favourites.
Bayern bagged three goals in each of last two games and as many as five in the thumping of Eintracht Frankfurt in the Super Cup final.
Bayern Munich vs Bayer Leverkusen: Head-to-head
Bayern were just ruthless towards Leverkusen in most recent head to head games.
The Bavarians won four and drew one of past five bagging as many as nine goals en route to the DFB Pokal final in the previous term of the competition.
FCB notched three goals in each of two league wins against Bayer last season as well.
It is interesting to note that both teams scored in four of last five head to head matches.
Bayern Munich vs Bayer Leverkusen Prediction
Heiko Herrlich’s defensive line revealed plenty of holes in two league games so far and we can hardly imagine Leverkusen holding Munich’s world-class attack here.
Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller bagged two goals apiece ahead of this third-round tie and they will be the biggest threat to Bayer’s goal on the occasion.
Bayern to score three or more goals looks to be a banker bet based on everything written above. You can back such scenario at the 1.75 (3/4) odds here.
Value seekers will also fancy the 2.15 (23/20) odds offered for the home win & BTTS bet knowing that Die Werkself managed to find the back of the net in four of last five H2H outings against FCB.
