Bayern Munich vs Bayer Leverkusen | Gamethread

The last non-win in the Bundesliga for Bayern Munich came at the hands of Bayer Leverkusen. Their last loss? Bayer Leverkusen. It's time for the Bavarians to get revenge.

Oliver Hardt

You can argue that  Bayer Leverkusen have kind of been Bayern Munich's bogey team over the last two seasons. In three matches against Sami Hyppiä's team, Bayern have only managed to win one time. The real question heading into the match is how the Uli Hoeneß verdict and his subsequent resignation will affect the players. We know that many of them are extremely close with Hoeneß and are likely devastated by the events, no matter how well they tried to prepare themselves.
