Bayer Leverkusen v Bayern Munich Preview, Bundesliga, Saturday 5th October 2013

Bayer Leverkusen head into this important match on saturday evening having had a very good start to their new season which has seen Sami Hyypia’s side secure six victories from their opening seven matches played and although they did lose Schalke 04 away 2-0 a few weeks back they are still very much in the hunt for the League Title and a Champions League qualification place for next season.

Bayern Munich head into the game also having managed to win six from their seven matches played so far this season, their only dropped points coming in 1-1 draw away against Freiburg, but after an impressive display midweek in the Champions League when beating Manchester City 3-1 that result has surely provided all the players a huge confident boost as they prepare for this game.

Bayer Leverkusen v Bayern Munich Team News

Bayer Leverkusen Team News:

Attacking midfielder Gonzalo Castro is the only player unavailable for the hosts as he continues to recover from injury, so expect Manager Sami Hyypia’s side to lineup in a 4-3-2-1 formation with Stefan Kiessling leading the attack up front with support in behind coming from Sidney Sam and Robbie Kruse.

Sidney Sam and Stefan Kiessling are the clubs current top goalscorers this season with five each.

Bayern Munich Team News:

Thiago Alcántara, Holger Badstuber and Javi Martinez are all unavailable for the visitors as each player continues to recover from respective injury problems. Manager Pep Guardiola will likely go with a 4-1-4-1 formation with Mandzukic leading the attack up front with support from the flanks coming from both Frank Ribery and Arjen Robben.

Striker, Mario Mandzukic is the clubs current top goalscorer in the league this season and will be looking for his 5th goal on saturday evening.

Bayern Munich have been in flawless form of late winning all five of the previous matches played. Bayer Leverkusen have not done quite as good having won four of their previous five games played.

Bayer Leverkusen v Bayern Munich Match Betting Odds Market.

Bayer Leverkusen have had some very good results this season and with home advantage will certainly fancy their chances of causing a bit of an upset on saturday evening and at a current best price of 17/4 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) this does look a bit overpriced in my opinion.

The Draw has not happened in any of the previous five meetings played between the two sides so some would say one is due and with both sides having started the season exceptionaly well it could prove sensible to cover the draw at a best price of 16/5 with Bet365 (£200 Free Bets for New Customers).

Bayern Munich are a side that has numerous world class individuals and as many will have seen midweek in their victory over Manchester City, they do look like the best club side in the world at the moment, so no real shock to see the online bookmakers having the visitors priced up as the clear favourites to win this game at odds of 4/6 with Betfred (£10 Free Bets, No Deposit Required for New Customers).

Bayer Leverkusen v Bayern Munich Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

On paper this looks like being a comfortable away victory for Bayern Munich as their squad does look stronger in every position compared to what Bayer Leverkusen have available and their current odds on offer will certainly see plenty of punters getting on.

However, the goal stats suggest at least a few goals to be scored in this game and might be a more sensible choice as with both sides having players that are currently in excellent scoring form at the moment, such betting markets like First Goal Scorer, Anytime Goal Scorer and Both Teams to Score could be the answer in seeing some profitable returns.
