Bayer Leverkusen vs Bayern Munich Betting Tips: 1X (Double chance)

The Pharmacists received a huge injection of confidence ahead of the deficisive top-of-the-table clash as they staged a stunning comeback, showcasing their never-say-die attitude by overturning a two-goal deficit to seal a dramatic 3-2 victory over Stuttgart, booking their place among the top four teams in this year's DFB Pokal.

Under the guidance of Spanish tactician Xabi Alonso, the squad continues to etch club history and showcase a determination to lift trophies on all fronts, standing out from the crowd as the sole club in Europe's top-five leagues that hasn't tasted the bitter flavor of defeat in 30 matches this season, thanks to an exceptional comeback triumph midweek.

In an unstoppable streak, Leverkusen has notched up an impressive 26 victories across all competitions, with just four stalemates, and now they're only two matches away from matching Bayern Munich's undefeated record of 32 games, a feat that would be perfectly capped off by outplaying their direct title rival in front of their home crowd.

Entering the clash against their main rivals in the title race with a narrow two-point lead, the league leaders are aware that a victory in Saturday's clash against the Munich giants could greatly enhance their prospects of winning their first-ever Bundesliga title, a realistic possibillity considering Die Werkself have picked up four points out of six available against Bayern in their last two face-offs, including a 2-1 drubbing at the BayArena last term.

While the home side of Saturday's encounter was engaged in cup commitments midweek, the defending champions Bayern Munich utilized the opportunity to extensively prepare for the decisive 90 minutes, having experienced a bitter exit from the DFB Pokal in the second round, falling victim to a surprising 1-2 upset against third-division side Saarbrucken.

As they approach their sternest examination on German soil, one that could either elevate them to the summit of the top flight or slam shut the door on their quest for title retention, the Bavarians have gathered momentum, bouncing back emphatically following an unexpected 0-1 defeat on their own turf against Werder Bremen on January 21st, claiming three league victories on the bounce, seeing off Union Berlin, Augsburg, and Borussia Monchengladbach last time out.

However, the boss of Germany's record winners Thomas Tuchel is facing an extremely tough situation, largely owing to his inability to field a full-strenght squad due to several key players being sidelined, which will further complicate their plans to reclaim the top spot in the Bundesliga, particularly given their less-than-ideal record versus Leverkusen in recent H2H's.

There's no doubt, it's bound to be a lively and entertaining contest from both sides, featuring an abundance of attacking talent, but Bayern's recent instability coupled with personnel issues plaguing the Munich club should aid Xabi Alonso and his high-flying crew in extending their unbeaten record and finally shedding the irritating moniker of "Neverkusen."

Unlike his counterpart Xabi Alonso, Bayern Munich boss Thomas Tuchel has a much bigger personnel problem, with back-up goalkeeper Daniel Peretz, Alphonso Davies, Bouna Sarr, Joshua Kimmich, Konrad Laimer and Kingsley Coman all sidelined with injuries.

Although key pair Dayot Upamecano and Serge Gnabry are close to returning, the trip to league leaders Bayer Leverkusen comes too soon for them, while Saturday's presence for centre-back Min-jae Kim is uncertain, given he is yet to return from international duty , after his South Korea were stopped by Jordan in the semi-finals of the 2023 Asian Cup.

The situation has been further complicated for the Munich giants as there is a possibility that they could be without first-choice goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, who did not take part in training on Tuesday with a minor knee injury, suggesting that third shot-stopper Steven Ulreich could be found on goal.
