Bayer Leverkusen have been on an impressive unbeaten run in the Bundesliga of late reaching 9 matches without losing and they will certainly not want this stop now as they are challenging for the third spot in the league. Their opponents though are the German powerhouse of Bayern Munich, who have been so dominant throughout the season even if they were knocked out of the German Cup in midweek on penalties by Borussia Dortmund. They will be wanting to jump back from this upset but will also want to rest some of their top players in view of next week’s clash with Barcelona in the Champions League semi-final. The best football tipster knows that with the away team’s head looking forward, this is a great opportunity for Leverkusen to jump on them and take something form this clash. The home side will have Tin Jedvaj in place for Kyriakos Papadopoulos at centre-back and Simon Rolfes in for Gonzalo Castro in central midfield but for the rest the squad should be the best the manager can rely on. As mentioned by our top tipster, Munich will be resting quite a few of their top players with Dante, Schweinsteiger, Rode and Pizarro in place of Benatia, Lahm and Xabi Alonso and Lewandowski
Our Probable Formations:
Bayer Leverkusen (126.96.36.199) Leno, Hilbert, Toprak, Jedvaj, Wendell, Bender, Rolfes, Bellarabi, Calhanoglu, Son and Kieβling.
Bayern Munich (188.8.131.52) Neuer, Weiser, Boateng, Dante, Rafinha, Schweinsteiger, Mϋller, Rode, Thiago, Götze and Pizarro.
BetAdvisor Top Tips:
The best football prediction should take into consideration the fact that Leverkusen have scored at least 4 goals in their last 3 home matches in the Bundesliga and Bayern have scored at least 2 goals in 5 of their last 6 away matches so an Over 2.5 should be a safe one here.
A sports betting expert is certain though that even with Bayern distracted by their clash with Barcelona next Wednesday the away team have the edge as they are undefeated in their last 5 matches against Leverkusen in all competitions.
