Bayer Leverkusen vs Bayern Munich, Bundesliga, 19.12.2020

The standout fixture in the Bundesliga this weekend sees Bayer Leverkusen welcome Bayern Munich on Saturday in a potentially explosive top-of-the-table clash.

BAYER LEVERKUSEN

After narrowly missing out on a Champions League place last season, Leverkusen have been quick off the blocks this season, going undefeated in their opening 11 Bundesliga matches, with 7 wins and 4 draws to ascend to the summit of the division with 25 points, one clear of their visitors Bayern Munich. The Werkself have also qualified to the Europa knockout phase in emphatic fashion, winning 5 of their six group games.

It’s been the same story in the league with their last couple of games in the league seeing them finding the back of the net four times, first against Hoffenheim (4-1) and they kept the party going on Wednesday as they hammered Koln 4-0 in the Rhine Derby for their 10th win in 11 matches across all competitions.

Although Bayern present a much sterner challenge, there is no doubt that Peter Bosz has instilled a sense of belief and confidence in this team and it shows in their play.

BAYERN MUNICH

Bayern Munich have reigned supreme over the German top division landscape for years now and after winning the treble last season, they began the season as red-hot favourites to maintain the status quo at the top. They’ve pretty much been there for the majority of the season but they have looked shaky over the last couple of weeks, dropping points against teams they were favoured to beat.

Some of these struggles have had a lot to do with injuries to key players like with Joshua Kimmich, Leon Goretzka and Javi Martinez. They had to dig deep to grind out a hard-fought 2-1 win at home to Wolfsburg to hand them their first loss of the season.

That said, Bayern have only lost once this season and are undefeated in their last 18 games across all competitions.

LEVERKUSEN V BAYERN MUNICH BETTING PREDICTIONS

This fixture has always been explosive over the years and it’s bound to be even more explosive here with the tussle for the top spot at stake. These are the top two teams in the league both in terms of their positions as well as the goals they have scored to start the season. 7 of their last 8 encounters have actually seen Over 3.5 goals landing. With both times not looking to sit back, we are backing another goal-fest here and we are going for a combo bet of BTTS and Over 2.5 goals @ 1.55 with Melbet for our first betting tip.

Bayern looked quite vulnerable against Wolfsburg. Not many teams can go toe-to-toe with on a normal day but with the absence of Kimmich and Goretzka in midfield, we feel Leverkusen have what it takes to match them in that department and limit their possession while creating problems for their backline which has shown some chinks in the armour. We feel there is some value in backing Leverkusen to prevail with a +1 handicap @ 2.05 with Melbet for our final prediction.
