Bayern Munich vs Bayer Leverkusen 19/8/2017
It’s not been a brilliant pre-season for Bayern Munich but it looked like they are slowly getting back to their best. After edging Borussia Dortmund to win the German Super Cup, the Bavarians then easily dismissed Chenmitzer FC 5-0 in the opening round of the German Cup last weekend. The good news is that Arjen Robben and David Alaba are back in full training, but there will be no place
for Jerome Boateng, Juan Bernat and new loan signing James Rodriguez. Captain Manuel Neuer is also questionable. Bayer Leverkusen lost a couple of their key players such as Hakan Calhanoglu (AC Milan) and Javier Hernandez (West Ham), and look set for a season of struggle.
Bayern have won the past four corresponding fixtures here at Allianz Arena. Three of them were by a one-goal margin. Leverkusen’s last win here was in 2012, a 2-1 win.
