Bayern Munich vs Bayer Leverkusen Match Preview
Bayern Munich dominate in German football for years and they are the main favorite to win the title in Bundesliga this season. Everyone expect to lift the trophy and they will the most probably do it again, but the focus in the new season will be on Champions League. Their preparing period wasn’t good enough and they lost almost all friendly games, but Bayern Munich’s manager Carlo Ancelotti played with mixed squad. In the 1/32-finals of German Cup, they smashed Chemnitzer 0-5, so if they repeat their performance against Bayer Leverkusen, visitors will have no chance to avoid defeat. Their top scorer Lewandowski picked up an injury and he is doubtful for this game, but he will probably be in the first eleven. Home side is a bog favorite to win this game and any other result, except their win, would be a big surprise.
Bayer Leverkusen didn’t shine last season in Bundesliga and they finish at the 12th position. Their main goal for new season is to reach the Top 5 and play in Europe next season. They played seven friendly matches and managed to win only once. Few days ago Bayer eliminated Karlsruher, but in the extra time. Visitors have to play much better this season if they want to finish the season near top. Against Bayern Munich will be very hard to play. Visitors will be satisfied with one point, but it’s hard to believe that they can stay unbeaten at Allianz Arena. In the summer transfer window few very important players left the club. Hakan Calhanoglu moved to AC Milan, Chicharito went to West Ham, Ömer Toprak moved to Borussia Dortmund, while Kyriakos Papadopoulos is the new acquisition of Hamburger SV. On the other side, only Sven Bender from Borussia Dortmund is the big value player who joined them.
Home side miss James Rodriguez and Juan Bernat, while Manuel Neuer, Jerome Boateng, Javi Martinez and Thiago Alcantara are all doubtful. Visitors will be without Kevin Kampl and Tin Jedvaj , while newcomer Bender is doubtful.
