Bayer Leverkusen vs Bayern München – Bundesliga : Bayern Leverkusen is making a good campaign this season and are on the fight for the European spots
With their fans definitely ambitioning a spot in the Champions League again.
Bayern Leverkusen is a team that likes to play attacking football, playing with an open and offensive style that has characterized this team’s exhibitions.
At home, they are strong, having 4 wins and 4 draws in 8 matches played so far and therefore being the only team, along with Bayern München, that is still undefeated at home.
Bayer Leverkusen hasn’t lost for some rounds and on the last 3 rounds, they’ve won 2 and drew the other 4-4 in Hannover, on a crazy match before the schedule break. If they had won, they would be in 2nd place, tied with Schalke.
Bayern München is the best team in the Bundesliga and, without much surprise, they are in the lead again, having a 11-points advantage over the 2nd place and a 13-points advantage over the others.
The German champions even got off to a poor start, dropping some points initially when the team wasn’t playing that well. But then, Carlo Ancelotti was fired and with Jupp Heynckes, things improved significantly.
They have won some matches by the minimum margin, but the team shows cohesion and good consistency in their matches.
Bayern München is also still in the Champions League, where this team is always expected to do well.
The good advantage they have in terms of points over their competition allows them to perform some rotation at this stage, if necessary.
On this encounter, and despite being upon 2 attacking teams here, I believe we will have less than 1.5 goals at half-time.
Bayer Leverkusen vs Bayern München – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Both teams will have to respect each other a lot, because they are two great quality teams and therefore, both teams will want to be balanced on the defensive sector, because a goal can make all the difference.
Another aspect that leads me into having confidence in this bet is the break that the German Bundesliga had. Surely the players have lost some competitive rhythm, despite the friendlies they played.
Therefore, I think that this is an interesting bet. We might see a goal before half-time, but not more than that. Bayern, when they take the lead, have been managing their advantages well, so I expect less than 1.5 goals in the first half here.
