Bayer Leverkusen, coming off a 1-0 road win against SC Freiburg, have five wins, one loss and zero draws in their last six overall. Bayern Munich, coming off a 5-0 home win against Fortuna Dusseldorf, have six wins, zero losses and zero draws in their last six overall.

Head-to-Head: These two teams last met in Bundesliga action on November 30, 2019 and Bayer Leverkusen won 2-1.
Simulations I have run project Robert Lewandowski, Kai Havertz, Serge Gnabry, Leon Goretzka and Thomas Müller as the players most likely to score (four of them are from Bayern Munich).
Bayern Munich is the better team but Bayer Leverkusen is also playing well and while they can’t win the Bundesliga, they have a lot to play for here and it will be a hard-fought affair with a low goal tally.
