Bayern Munich to Win
With their Champions League quest still on track, Bayern Munich can concentrate fully on the task in hand in the Bundesliga, where a date with Bayer Leverkusen awaits on Sunday. Bayern Munich have emerged as victors from six of their last seven skirmishes with Die Werkself, and they battered four goals without reply past Leverkusen when the teams last met in September. The Bavarians are targeting their fourth top tier win on the spin this weekend and our first Bayer Leverkusen vs Bayern Munich prediction backs the champions to get the job done.
Bayern Munich to Score in Both Halves
When fully on song, Bayern Munich are a joy to behold from an attacking perspective and the defending Bundesliga champions showcased the goal-getting power in their ranks when they dismantled Leverkusen 4-0 earlier in the campaign. Bayern have inflicted heavy defeats on Bayer in two of the clubs’ last three meetings, and they registered either side of the interval in those 4-0 and 5-1 thumpings. In total, Julian Nagelsmann’s title favourites have scored in both halves in 58% of their league fixtures this season, and they could repeat that trick on Sunday.
