19th December 2020 – 18:30, BayArena, Leverkusen
Bayer Leverkusen and Bayern Munich will close Saturday’s action in the Bundesliga 13th round. It is the clash of the two top-placed sides in the league, and both of them will search for a victory.
Match Preview & Team News
Although few people believed they could be one of the title candidates, Bayer Leverkusen sits on the top of the table, being one point ahead of their upcoming rivals. The hosts are the only undefeated team in Bundesliga, and they failed to win just four times in 12 rounds played so far. Peter Bosz’s side plays very disciplined football, and the home side is on an excellent run. Lucas Alario and the lads missed the chance to win just once on the last eleven occasions in all competitions. The hosts can be satisfied with their Europa League campaign as well, as they secured a place in the knockout stage. Bayer Leverkusen is the tightest side in Bundesliga with only ten goals conceded. If they manage to keep up the pace, they can remain very competitive in the title race.
The visitors haven’t tasted a defeat since the end of September and in 18 consecutive games in all competitions, but it seems they need some rest after a very busy schedule. They celebrated just twice in the past five games, drawing in the other three. Interestingly, Hans Flick’s side managed to keep the clean sheet only once in the previous 12 games, and the away side needs to tighten up their defense. Bayern conceded ten goals in six away matches this season, however, their excellent attacking work compensates for their inconsistencies in the back. Robert Lewandowski and the lads secured their place in the Champions League eight-finals without much trouble. There are still many challenges ahead of the defending champions, and they need to be consistent to pick up all trophies again.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Bayer Leverkusen scored four goals in each of their last three games, having conceded just once. Bayern has been struggling lately, and that’s why the hosts might extend their unbeatable streak.
Goals Market Prediction
Both sides have been very efficient lately, and their latest head to head clashes have been a joy to watch. We don’t think nets will remain intact in this one.
