Bayern Munich vs Bayer Leverkusen – The Most Anticipated Battle of Champions.
Prediction: Both teams to score – YES!
Can Bayern Munich Knock Bayer Leverkusen or Uno Reverse?
Bayern Munich will be about to end a winless run of four league matches, when they will take up on Bayer Leverkusen on Friday night.
Bayern Munich’s Winless Run:
Bayern Munich has not endured a four-game winless run in the Bundesliga since 2002. With more Champions League fixtures on the horizon, the defending champs need to kick things into high gear as soon as possible.
And so, most recently Nagelsmann has seen barbs thrown at former Liverpool star Sadio Mané.
“I speak to all players individually. In the end, it’s the player’s job to implement what the coach tells him to do”
Our prediction for this match is:
All eyes will be on Allianz Arena when Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen face each other in the Bundesliga derby.
The reigning champions have yet to find their best form, with the team failing to win the previous four league fixtures, and, no doubt, boss Julian Nagelsmann is under big pressure ahead of Friday’s showdown.
Bayer Leverkusen, on the other hand, aim to escape the danger zone, but given their shaky defence, we predict that Bayern Munich will return to winning ways this weekend.
And also, The defeat to Augsburg leaves Bayern five points behind league leaders Union Berlin and three points behind Borussia Dortmund.
Leverkusen, meanwhile, have only won one of their seven Bundesliga matches so far this season, and head to the Allianz Arena in 15th position in the table.
Bayern Munich vs Bayer Leverkusen Prediction:
Bayer Leverkusen sits second in Champions’ League Group B right now and focusing the majority of their attention on beating winless FC Porto. If they can secure a victory in that match, it would give them a firm foothold in the qualification stakes for the knockout stage early by next year.
Leverkusen will have the winter break in which to claw back a respectable league position.
And, Gerardo Seoane will focus his full efforts on the one competition where his men can make the most headway in.
Munich, meanwhile, already holds a commanding lead in their Champions’ League group and with minnows Viktoria Plzen on deck, Julian Nagelsmann will no-doubt expect an immediate response in this game and we can see Bayern winning and covering here on Friday as a result.
Well said “Everyone can express their opinion. Josh is an extremely important player for us and for the national team”
However, like his counterpart on Friday evening, the 43-year-old is under significant pressure to quickly improve results, with his side’s strong third-place finish in the Switzerland boss’ first season in charge only likely to buy him a certain amount of time in the job.
Leverkusen, meanwhile, will travel without Andrey Lunev, Exequiel Palacios, Florian Wirtz, Amine Adli and Karim Bellarabi due to injury.
Lucas Hernandez, Kingsley Coman and Bouna Sarr are all expected to remain side-lined through injury for another few weeks at least.
