Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen will be looking to rebound from recent disappointing performances when they meet this weekend in one of the most anticipated games of the German Bundesliga season.
Bayern Munich will enter the game after a disappointing 1-0 loss to Augsburg in their last Bundesliga game before the international break, and they will be looking for a win to get back on track.
Much has been made of Bayern Munich’s quiet start to the Bundesliga season. The German giants are fifth in the league table, an unusual position given the club’s recent achievements. They have not won in their last four league games, and forward Sadio Mane’s form is causing concern.
Bayer Leverkusen, on the other hand, will enter the match after a disappointing 1-1 home draw with Werder Bremen in their last league outing, and they will be looking to beat Bayern in order to return to winning ways.
Bayer Leverkusen is currently 15th in the Bundesliga. While much of the focus in the Bundesliga has been on Bayern Munich, Bayer Leverkusen’s form has been troubling. Manager Gerardo Seoane will be under pressure to get his team to produce positive results as soon as possible.
Most teams will enter the game as underdogs against Bayern Munich, but given Julian Nagelsmann’s side’s inconsistency, Bayer Leverkusen will hope to kick start their season with a positive performance against the Bundesliga champions.
