Bayer Leverkusen vs Bayern Munich
Date: Saturday, 2 February 2019
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: BayArena (Leverkusen).
Bayer Leverkusen seem to have finally caught the right form as a thread of three wins in last fur league affairs climbed them up to the top half of the standings. They are just seven points shy of the top-four finish which is fantastic given massively underwhelming start to the campaign they’ve had.
Die Werkself did not begin the year in the way they wanted as they just could not break Borussia M’gladbach’s defense in the previous home fixture. They lost it 0-1, but showed character to get away with the spoils from the very following outing against Wolfsburg.
The team led by Peter Bosz notched three goals without conceding a single at the other end to ease past top-half Wolves away at VOLKSWAGEN ARENA. Kai Havertz, Kevin Volland and Julian Brandt were on target on the day.
Such victory will clearly instill some confidence into Bayer’s players ahead of one of the toughest fixtures in the competition this Saturday against defending champions Bayern Munich.
Bayer Leverkusen vs Bayern Munich: Head-to-head
Leverkusen were not a tricky opposition for the Bavarians in the last couple of years.
Bayern Munich won five and drew one of past six meetings with Die Werkself.
However, we have to mention that Bayer Leverkusen managed to find the back of the net in all of past four defeats.
There were four or more goals scored in each of last four head to head outings.
Bayer Leverkusen vs Bayern Munich: Prediction
We have reasons to expect the continuation of such high-scoring trend in H2H games between these two sides. Bayern Munich were dominant attackingly in two of their 2019 fixtures. They bagged seven goals in easy back-to-back wins over Hoffenheim (1-3 on the road) and Stuttgart (4-1 at home).
Niko Kovac’s men are still six points shy of Borussia Dortmund at the top of the standings and they will be highly motivated to keep the seven-win run going here. However, Die Werkself will no doubts represent a serious test and we will rather suggest you to back goals instead of the away win pick at 1.50 odds.
