Bayer Leverkusen vs Bayern Munich Prediction & Betting tips
A lot is about Kai Havertz these days. Probably the greatest talent in German football at the moment is at the top of FC Bayern’s shopping list, although those responsible for the record champions recently emphasized that a transfer would probably not be made until 2021. On Saturday afternoon, the 20-year-old has the opportunity to prove his class to the potential new employer.
The highly anticipated top game of the 30th match day between Leverkusen and Bavaria will take place in the BayArena from 14:30 p.m. The announced odds of the best bookmakers underpin the currently outstanding form of the front runner, who could possibly chill the champagne for the slimmed-down title celebration if it were to succeed in the Rhineland.
The most recent two matches in the top German division also went to Bayer, which is why it would be worthwhile to place a tip on the double chance 1 / X between Leverkusen and Bavaria.
Admittedly, it is inevitably associated with a high risk of betting against the undisputed industry leader in German football these days. Under Hansi Flick, Thomas Müller and colleagues literally flourish, so you should definitely choose the application carefully. We expect a high-class football game with many goal area scenes on both sides and are looking forward to a top-class game.
Bayer Leverkusen has never collected more points in the first twelve games of a Bundesliga second half than this year. The achieved 28 out of a possible 36 points are an absolute top value and the main reason that the Rhinelander can dream of returning to the UEFA Champions League after a relatively inconsistent first half of the season.
Although currently only fifth place is available, which, as is well known, would not be enough for the premier class, those responsible for coach Peter Bosz and head of sport Rudi Völler are confident that their teams will climb at least one rank in the ranking for the remaining five match days. This optimism is not unfounded, because even at BVB as table runners-up only four points are missing.
However, the chances of reaching the season’s goal could get dampened on Saturday, as Bayern Munich’s toughest and best opponent is currently traveling to the BayArena. In addition to the mentioned yield after the winter break, the most recent impressions after the restart in the Leverkusen against Bayern forecast should also be included.
Three of the four games after the break were won. Only at home against VfL Wolfsburg there was a hearty clap, which was erased from the players’ heads after the 1-0 win last Friday in Freiburg.
It is also positive to mention that the fifth place is extremely fond of playing against the top teams in the league. Among other things, Borussia Dortmund and Borussia Mönchengladbach have already been conquered this season. The first leg at Bayern was also victorious. Against the direct competitor RB Leipzig it was enough to split the points. In the last four games against the respective leaders, however, there were four bankruptcies.
A special focus of attention on Saturday, as already mentioned, is of course on Kai Havertz, who has been playing a sensational reverse series so far. 13 of his 16 goal participations this season were booked in the calendar year 2020. The youngster scored twice against Werder Bremen (4: 1) and Gladbach (3: 1); against SC Freiburg (1-0) he scored the “Golden Goal of the Day” last week.
Personnel, the Dutch coach Peter Bosz only has to do without the injured Lars Bender. Otherwise, all actors are available. The soccer teacher has numerous alternatives, especially on the offensive. Even Kevin Volland is an option after his injury. Wirtz, Bailey and Demirbay are also in the starting XI.
Actually, no one doubts that FC Bayern will receive the championship trophy for the eighth time in a row at the end of June. Not only does the record champion have a seven-point lead over Borussia Dortmund five days before the end, but above all the fact that the Munich team play from Niko Kovac to Hansi Flick after the coach change leaves no skepticism of a potential break-in on the home straight.
Jogi Löw’s former assistant coach for the German national team can speak impressive numbers. For example, Flick is the first Bayern coach to win 22 of his first 25 competitive games. For comparison: Even a Pep Guardiola, who has held the record to date, celebrated one victory less with the same number of games.
In the meantime, the FCB has ten successes in a row; The South Germans are unbeaten in 19 matches, with Lewandowski and Co. keeping the upper hand in 18 of them. After the restart, Bayern are at twelve points from four encounters and 13-2 goals. With this, the offensive continues to target the best mark of the highest German division for the remaining match days. A team has never had as many hits after 29 match days as FC Bayern this season. So far there are 86.
With all justified praise, there is also an interesting point that makes the Leverkusen against Bayern odds from Saturday in a slightly different light. We’re talking about the DFB Cup semi-final, in which Munich will meet Eintracht Frankfurt on Wednesday. Since the FCB of course dreams of a double and with the SBU has a significantly heavier opponent than Leverkusen (Saarbrücken), some thoughts may be subconsciously indulging in the knockout game.
The bottom line, however, is that, given the current condition of the Flick eleven, placing bets against the front-runner is extremely risky. The star ensemble from Säbener Straße looks more dominant than it has for years and will still face a difficult challenge in Leverkusen. Because of the one-sided distribution of the odds, the value lies with the home side. By the way, in our linked guide you can get easy explanations of value bets.
The hospital at the quasi-designated master has not increased. Furthermore Tolisso, Süle and Coutinho have to pass injured. Thiago could, however, return to the squad or even to the starting eleven after surviving an injury. In central defense, Hernandez and Boateng fight over the square next to David Alaba. We assume that Flick prefers the 2014 world champion.
