Bayer 04 Leverkusen Form and Team News

Leverkusen are the second placed team in the league so far having lost a game. They have won five while drawing one other game. In the last season they were the sixth-place team in the points table. With that we can say they played some decent football but then if we delve deep into their season, we can find that they were in the top half of the table for most of the time and eventually faltered at the end to finish where they did. They are playing against Bayern Munich in the next match and they would want to keep this momentum going their way. For Leverkusen to have any chance of making it big this season, they would need to produce consistent performances without getting carried away by the wins they get along the way. 

Gerardo Seoane has been appointed as the new manager of Leverkusen in hope of turning around their fortunes. They too like Bayern have a relatively young squad and given this team enough exposure and the right advice, Leverkusen is destined for great things in the future. For that, the first thing they need to do is keep consistency. Moussa Diaby and Florian Wirtz have also found the strap hitting four goals each. Patrick Schick has each hit six goals already topping the goal-scoring chart. Frimpong is also in good form. It’s time Leverkusen really start firing in from all sides with this team.

Bayern Munich Form and Team News

Bayern seem a bit late to get into the groove of things after the first seven games. They are not unbeaten anymore which is quiteunexpected, and also they have drawn one game which seems a bit hard to understand given the brand of football Bayern is famous for in recent years.The League champions were clearly not at their best in the last leg of the last season, they were just not as dominant as we used to see from them, this also translated to them getting knocked out by PSG in the quarterfinals in the Champions League as well. The new season would bring with it newer challenges and Bayern would be desperate to rediscover their ‘not just win but crush the opponent’ style of play in the course of the season. They are playing against Bayer 04 Leverkusen and they are also not in the best form going into this match, which could make up for a compelling watch to see how Bayern would bounce back.

Hansi Flick has left a legacy that only a few managers can match, Nagelsmann is coming into this team as the new manager and he holds a tremendous amount of reputation from his time at Leipzig. The impact that Lewandowski had in this team was to be seen in the latter half of last season when he was nursing an unfortunate injury, he is returning and has already hit seven goals!! He along with Gnabry and Muller have hit the right notes and are up and running. Kimmich too is starting to find his footing at the front and back alike.
