Pick: Over 3.5 Goals
Odds: 8/11
Bookmaker: Bet365
(All betting odds correct at time of writing: 3 March 2022)

Preview: Likely shorn of their leading goalscorer, Bayer Leverkusen make their way to Allianz Arena no doubt still smarting from the 5-1 thrashing dished out to them in front of their own fans when the sides met earlier in the season. Will it a similar story when Bayern Munich play the role of hosts on Matchday 25?

Bayern Munich – Nagelsmann’s side won’t be caught?

A seventh Bundesliga goal this season for Leroy Sane – scored via a sixth league assist for Joshua Kimmich – helped Bayern Munich to successive league victories since a shock 4-2 defeat on the road at Bochum on Matchday 22. The former Man City attacker calmly slotted home the game’s only goal in Frankfurt last time out, six days after they were made to work for a 4-1 win at home bottom side Greuther Furth.

Bayern’s lead now stands at a surely insurmountable eight points. In Bundesliga history, no team has ever relinquished such a commanding lead at this stage of the campaign. Frankfurt had their moments, though, and were unfortunate not to extend Bayern’s run without a Bundesliga clean sheet to six. Ultimately though the record champions were good value for their fifth league win from seven outings in 2022 (L2).

Key Stat: Bayern Munich have won each of their last four Bundesliga matches versus Bayer Leverkusen and were 5-0 in front by the 37th minute, eventually winning 5-1, when the sides met first time around in the season at BayArena.


Both Teams to Score 2 or More



Bayer Leverkusen – Diaby to the fore in Munich?

If Sane is enjoying his best season to date in the colours of Bayern, then so too is Moussa Diaby for the Black and Red of Leverkusen. The 22-year-old has already earned four senior caps for France and appears a shoe-in for more ahead of friendlies with Ivory Coast and South Africa later this month, a brace in last week’s comfortable 3-0 victory at home to Arminia Bielefeld taking him on to 12 Bundesliga for the season.

Only Patrick Schick has found the more more frequently in 2021-22 than Diaby, who ably deputised in the Czech’s absence last time out. Encouraging signs then for coach Gerardo Seoane who is set to be without his leading marksmen for a few more weeks if reports are to be believed. Aside from that news, there is optimism abound regarding a side that has won five of the last six league games to consolidate third place.

Key Stat: Leverkusen have scored at least twice in seven consecutive Bundesliga games, failing to score more than once on just one occasion across their last 12 league outings.

Bayern Munich Vs Bayer Leverkusen Betting Advice

First hosts third at Allianz Arena, and it could be quiet the spectacle. Between them they have amassed 138 goals in 48 league games this term, with both teams having already set personal bests at this stage (75 for Bayern, 63 Leverkusen). Bayern are currently on a 31-game scoring streak when facing Die Werkself, who themselves are in prolific form having notched at least twice in 11 of their past 12 Bundesliga fixtures.


Bayern Munich Vs Bayer Leverkusen – Key Facts:

  • Only once before has Bayern Munich strung together more consecutive Bundesliga victories over Bayer Leverkusen than their current streak of four.
  • No team has more Bundesliga goals this season than Bayern Munich (75 in 24 games). They face a Leverkusen team that has scored multiple goals in each of their last seven league games.
  • Leverkusen did produce a win at the Allianz Arena fairly recently, a 2-1 triumph in November 2019. However, that remain their sole success in this fixture across the last eight seasons (L7).


Unsurprisingly, bookmakers have cottoned on to the pair’s exploits in the attacking third and quoted Over 3.5 Goals at 8/11 (best price with Bet365). It may seem short but it is a bet which has returned a winner in eight of their previous eleven competitive meetings. Bayern prevailed in the last four of those, memorably forging into a 5-0 lead inside 37 minutes of this season’s reverse fixture, and should raise their game once more.
