Unsurprising league leaders Bayern Munich host Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday hoping to continue their outstanding start to the season. Bayer Leverkusen, however, will attempt to get their first points on the board, but avoiding a third consecutive defeat looks like a mammoth task for them. The match kicks off at 15:30 local time, and regardless of their form, it’s always a huge match when these two teams square off.

Home Team: Bayern Munich

bayern munich betting.footballWe are only into September, but it appears Bayern Munich are already the team to beat in Bundesliga, as they have registered two wins in the league convincingly and a 5-0 German Super Cup win at the start of the season.

Nivo Kovac is the man in charge, and his main task this season is to go one step further in the Champions League, and win Bayern Munich’s 6th Champions League title. Bayern Munich had purchased German international Leon Goretzka from Schalke during the summer and was able to get on the score sheet in their last outing against Stuttgart.

The old familiar duo of Muller and Lewandowksi also popped up with a goal apiece as they fully dominated their opponents. Bayern Munich had 24 attempts at goal, compared to Stuttgart’s 4, and Manual Neuer had no saves to make. Will their opponents give them anything to worry about this weekend?

Away Team: Bayer Leverkusen

bayer leverkusen betting.footballThe last thing that Bayer Leverkusen want now is a trip to the Allianz arena, but a positive display here may spread some optimism throughout the club. The team lost their goalkeeper, Bernd Leno, to Arsenal, and their promising full back, Benjamin Henrichs, to AS Monaco, and didn’t bolster their squad sufficiently to push on from last season’s 5th place finish.

They have started the season with two defeats in the league, at Monchengladbach on the opening day, and at home to Wolfsburg in their most recent fixture. Their only competitive win so far this season was in the cup against minnows CfR Porzheim, winning 1-0 via a first half penalty.

Will Bayer Leverkusen spark up their slow start to the season by surprising the giants of German football?

Head to Head (H2H)

bundesliga betting.footballHistory is against Bayer Leverkusen for this fixture, as they have only won once at the home of Bayern Munich since the turn of the millennium. That win was back in 2012, in the season when Bayern Munich had conquered Germany and Europe, by winning the treble.

In fact, the only time they lost that season in the league that season, was to Bayer Leverkusen. However since that famous victory, Bayer Leverkusen have lost in all five games at the Allianz Arena. The last time Bayer Leverkusen defeated Bayern Munich in the reverse fixture was only recently (fairly) in 2015, winning 2-0. Whilst Bayer Leverkusen don’t like visiting Bayern Munich, apart from that sole victory in 2012, they do often cause Bayern Munich a lot of troubles.

Bayern Munich tend to give every side a big beating one time or another, but Leverkusen have avoided a ‘big thrashing’ in recent years.

Bayern Munich vs Bayer Leverkusen Betting Predictions and Betting Tips

Bayern Munich are at 1/5 to win this match, with Bayer Leverkusen at 12/1. A draw between the two sides is priced at 11/2. Both fixtures last season finished 3-1 to Bayern Munich, and given the two teams start to the season, it’s hard to predict there to be anything less than a comfortable home win here.

A third consecutive 3-1 result for Bayern Munich would be at 17/2. The most likely away win is a 0-1 victory at a staggering 33/1, if you are feeling lucky.

However, I would opt that Bayern Munich will win comfortably, and there to be more than 4.5 goals to raise the winnings a bit – which you can get at 4/11.
