Bayern Munich vs Bayer Leverkusen match stats

Bayern have scored in each of their last 32 Bundesliga home games against Bayer Leverkusen, last failing to do so in a 1-0 defeat in October 1989. The Bavarians have only ever put together a longer scoring run at home against Hamburger SV (39 games since 1979). 12 points from seven games represents Bayern’s worst Bundesliga season in 12 years – they only had eight points at this stage under Louis van Gaal in 2010/11. Leverkusen, meanwhile, have just five points, which is their second-worst record after seven Bundesliga games, only ever collecting fewer in 1982/83 (3).

Bayern are currently on a four-game winless run in the Bundesliga, something which last happened to them from November 2001 to January 2002 under Ottmar Hitzfeld. They actually went seven games without a win back then, a negative club record in the top flight. Following a run of 87 league games in a row with a goal, a Bundesliga record, Bayern failed to score last time out in Augsburg (1-0 loss) for the first time since a goalless draw against Leipzig on 9th February 2020. They last failed to score in two straight league matches in autumn 2018 under Niko Kovac.

Bayern (16) and Bayer Leverkusen (11) have had the most shots in the league after recovering the ball in advanced positions. Bayern’s opponents have won possession in the final third 59 times against them this season – no side has allowed this to happen as often. Kerem Demirbay has scored in three consecutive Bundesliga games for the first time, and no player has scored as many goals over the last three matchdays as him either (3). He has found the net more often in the last three matches than over his previous 46 top-flight games combined.
