Bayer Leverkusen Vs Bayern Munich German Bundesliga Live Online Commentary
The clash with the defending champions could not come in a better moment for Bayer Leverkusen. Bayern is vulnerable after a 1–2 defeat to Real Madrid in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League quarter-final. What is more, head coach Carlo Ancelotti can possibly give some rest to Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben, while star forward Robert Lewandowski is also not completely fit to make an appearance.
However, we can’t resist the impression that even the reserve line-up of Bayern Munich is stronger than the first team of Bayer Leverkusen. The hosts have had a dismal campaign in this term of Bundesliga and they won’t see European competitions in the next season. Bayer only managed to claim a single win (over the rock-bottomed Darmstadt) in the last nine matches in all tournaments. As regards Bayer team news ahead of this match: they will be without Hakan Calhanoglu, who is serving a four-month ban for a breach of contract with Turkish side Trabszonspor. Lars Bender, center back Jonathan Tah, and left-back Wendell are also all doubtful.
Meanwhile, Bayern Munich are very close to defend the title of the Bundesliga champions. They have made a major step towards securing the silverware last weekend in the 4–1 drubbing of Borussia Dortmund in Der Klassiker. However, it is hard to explain what happened to the machinery in the second half of the match with Real Madrid. As stated in the introduction, Ancelotti will rest his key men for the rematch in the Spanish capital, but we still expect the Bavarians to confirm the domination and ease past Bayer. Bayern Munich are doubtful over striker Robert Lewandowski and center-back Mats Hummels.
