  • Competition: Germany - Bundesliga
  • Date: Friday, 15th, September 2023
  • Kickoff: 19:30 UTC +1 / 20.30 CEST
  • Venue: Allianz Arena (Munchen)

The spotlight of this weekend's action falls squarely on the Allianz Arena, where Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen, the two teams with unblemished records after three rounds in the Bundesliga, prepare for an epic showdown.

Despite not hitting their top gear just yet, the Bavarian juggernauts have kicked off their Bundesliga title defense in splendid fashion. It's evident that Thomas Tuchel's side wasted no time dwelling on the bitter German Super Cup failure and the 0-3 defeat to RB Leipzig, as they've achieved a flawless record in the opening three rounds - (3-0-0). Following their dominant performances against Werder Bremen (4-0) and Augsburg (3-1), they eked out a 2-1 victory against Monchengladbach after a comeback, securing their first win at Borussia Park since March 2019.

If anyone is going to dethrone Bayern Munich from the German throne this season, it's looking like Bayer Leverkusen, who are relishing an exceptional start to the Bundesliga 2023-24 campaign. Xabi Alonso seems to have put all the pieces together, brought in the necessary reinforcements in the summer, and most importantly highlighted a serious bid for the title of German champion, the jewel that is still missing in their trophy cabinet. Thanks to a significantly better goal difference, Die Werkself are currently the Bundesliga leaders with the same number of points as the reigning champions.

Bayern Munich vs Bayer Leverkusen Betting Tips: BTTS

While Bayern confidently marches towards their 12th consecutive German championship title, it seems that Thomas Tuchel is still struggling to find the right formula to stabilize the Munich club's defense, leading to frequent lapses, conceding five goals in their opening four official matches. Furthermore, the Bavarians' defense will face an even more severe test when they host Leverkusen, a formidable offensive unit that has been scoring goals for fun in the new campaign, netting an astonishing 19 goals in just four competitive matches.

Undoubtedly, Die Werself have been showcasing the finest football in the Bundesliga at this moment – dismantling RB Leipzig (3-2), Menhengladbach (3-0), and newly-promoted side Darmstadt (5-1) – and the match against the reigning champions will offer the best insight into where the Leverkusen-based club currently stands.

Considering the wealth of offensive firepower in both camps, coupled with the fact that BTTS has been observed in 12 of the previous 14 encounters, we have every reason to anticipate a goal-laden spectacle on both fronts.

Bayern Munich team news

Just ahead of the international break, Bayern got some great news as their top-choice goalkeeper, Manuel Neuer, made his return to training after fracturing his leg while skiing back in December of last year.

With Manuel Neuer not yet at full fitness to return to the goal, the Bavarians made a late move in the summer transfer window to bring in 23-year-old Daniel Peretz from Maccabi Tel Aviv. Peretz might have a chance to debut on Friday against Leverkusen, especially since Sven Ulreich didn't meet Tuchel's expectations.

Summer signing Raphael Guerreiro, arriving from Bayern's fierce rivals Dortmund, is closing in on a return to the field following a calf injury. In addition, there are doubts about Jamal Musiala's availability as he withdrew from international duty due to a back concern.

Bayer Leverkusen team news

After receiving a red card on the closing day of the previous Bundesliga season, Moroccan player Amine Adli is now poised to make his comeback on the field, having completed his suspension during the opening three rounds.

Czech forward Patrik Schick has initiated solitary training sessions with the aim of recuperating from a persistent groin injury. On the other hand, right-back Arthur, who arrived from Brazilian side America MG this summer, sustained a thigh injury during international duty with Brazil U-23 and is anticipated to be out of action for a few weeks.

Nevertheless, coach Xabi Alonso can remain relatively calm about Schick's absence, considering that summer acquisition Victor Boniface has seamlessly fit into the attacking setup, amassing four goals and two assists in the first three Bundesliga fixtures.
