Bayer Leverkusen’s Recent Form
Last Time Out For Leverkusen
After a disappointing 4-1 loss at home to Wolfsburg, Bayer Leverkusen bounced back with a controlled 1-0 win at Freiburg at the weekend. It was a different performance than we are used to seeing from Leverkusen recently, who are normally involved in matches with plenty of goals. But, it will be reassuring to their fans to see that they can also win in a less dramatic fashion. Once again, it was the young Kai Havertz who led his team to the win. He used his skill and composure to deftly finish past Freiburg’s keeper on 52 minutes to score the only goal of the game. That goal came after complete domination from Leverkusen, whose front 3 of Havertz, Leon Bailey and Florian Wirtz could easily dominate the league for years to come. Against Bayern, they will need their star youngster to perform at his best if they are to have any chance of a result.
Bayern Munich’s Recent Form
Last Time Out For Bayern
There isn’t much we can say about Bayern that hasn’t been said already. A 5-0 win over Dusseldorf at the weekend showed everything that Bayern Munich are capable of. The hosts were in complete control from the start and took the lead with just 15 minutes gone. Benjamin Pavard’s effort finished off a slick passing move and was eventually deflected in by Mathias Jorgensen. The quick, incisive passing was a common feature of the game, with the highlight undoubtedly being Robert Lewandowski’s finish for Bayern’s 3rd goal on 43 minutes. Lewandowski added a quick 4th just after the break, before Alphonso Davies completed the rout with 40 minutes still left to play. In the past few weeks, Bayern have shown that their start of season form was an anomaly, and are clearly back to their goalscoring best.
Where’s the Value Bet?
Whenever we talk about Bayern Munich, it’s impossible not to talk about Robert Lewandowski. The Polish striker is the world's best out and out striker at the moment, and no defence in the Bundesliga has been able to stop him. This season alone, Lewandowski has scored 29 goals, at a rate of better than a goal per game. He has now scored against all but one Bundesliga team he has faced in his career and will go down as one of the greatest strikers the league has ever seen. In the present however, he will be looking to get his 30th goal of the season this weekend. With the odds of him scoring relatively low, we can look at the multiple goals market to find some better value. With his rate of over a goal per game, there’s no reason he can’t bag another 2 against Leverkusen at odds of 23/20.
