Bayern Munich recorded a stylish 2-0 victory over Bayer 04 Leverkusen; this match had none of the drama of the reverse fixture in which Leverkusen went up by a goal from Patrick Schick but conceded soon after; a Robert Lewandowski goal in injury time in the second half handed Leverkusen their first defeat in the league in the season in that game and since then, things haven’t looked great for die Werkself.
Bayern made only one change from the game against Wolfsburg, bringing in Kingsley Coman for Leroy Sané. The goals for Bayern came from Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Joshua Kimmich in a solid display. Leverkusen didn’t offer too much until late in the second half when Karim Bellarabi came on and Nadiem Amiri came on.
