Bayer 04 Leverkusen is hosting Bayern Munich at BayArena in a derby match of round 30 in German Bundesliga.
Leverkusen has been playing outstanding soccer as of late, and in their last 4 games, Leverkusen has scored 9 goals, while conceding 6 goals. After losing to Wolfsburg at home two weeks ago, Leverkusen bounced back with a nice victory against Freiburg on the road last week. Leverkusen has had 69% of ball possession in that match, 1 shot on goal, 6 corner kicks, and 87% of the correct passes. Leverkusen has won this game 0-1 with a goal from Kai Havertz. With 11 goals in 26 games, Havertz is Bayer’s leading goal scorer with 11 goals, while Volland added 9 goals and 6 assists. Lars Bender is the only injured player for Leverkusen. With 56 points, 54 scored goals, and 36 conceded goals, Leverkusen is in 5th place in the standings, but the good news for Leverkusen is that they have the same amount of points as M’gladbach in 4th place, the last spot that leads to the Champions League. This match against Bayern could be a crucial one for Leverkusen because if they lose, they might not get a chance to climb to the fourth place again, and if they win, the situation at the top of the Bundesliga might get complicated once again. Leverkusen is a fantastic, young team that is certainly capable of beating Bayern, but we will see what kind of tactic Leverkusen’s coach will choose.
Bayern has once again proved that they are the best team in Bundesliga, and the last competitive match that Bayern has lost was back in early December of last year. In their last 5 games, Bayern has conceded only 2 goals, while they scored 13 goals. Bayern Munich is at the top of Bundesliga with 67 points, 86 scored goals, and 28 conceded goals, 7 points ahead of Borussia Dortmund in the second place. Lewandowski is the leading goal scorer in Bayern and in Bundesliga with 29 goals, while Gnarby added 11 goals and 10 assists, and Thomas Muller added 17 assists. Coutinho and Tolisso are injured, while Alcantara is still questionable. In their most recent match in Bundesliga against Fortuna at home, Bayern was absolutely dominant with 68% of ball possession, 8 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, and 88% of the correct passes. Bayern has won this game 5-0 and Lewandowski has scored 2 goals. Bayern does have 7 points advantage at the top, but the season could become exciting again if they lose to Leverkusen this week. There are 5 games left until the end of the season, and I don’t think that Bayern can gamble away 7 points advantage, so congratulations to the new, old Champions, Bayern Munich.
Bayern has won their last 10 games, and they have won their last 8 games on the road. Both Leverkusen and Bayern are playing fantastic soccer, and both teams could use a win here, Leverkusen a little bit more I would say. I can see this game going either way, but the goals were constant in this matchup.
