Three reasons to watch Bayern Munich online
The closest title race in a long while
Going into matchweek 25 of the Bundesliga, the title race is the closest it has been for ages. After 24 matches played, second-place Borussia Dortmund trail leaders Bayern by two points.
For Bayern, the weakness has been too many draws, currently at seven with only Wolfsburg (eight) and FC Koln (nine) managing more in the Bundesliga this season.
This could be a game of two halves
Bayern has scored 47 goals in the first half of their Bundesliga games this term – a league-high and a new record at this stage of a season. Leverkusen, meanwhile, has scored the second-most goals after the break of any side (26; RB Leipzig: 27), more than Bayern in this timeframe of matches (24).
Pressure makes diamonds
A contrast between the sides can be found in the fact that Bayer has had the second-fewest pressing sequences of any Bundesliga side this season (147; Gladbach: 145), while Bayern has managed the most (280). The Bavarians have scored the most goals after advanced ball recoveries (8), while the Werkself has conceded the most goals after losing possession high up the pitch (8).
Bayer Leverkusen team news
Xabi Alonso is missing Charles Aránguiz (calf) and Andrey Lunev (back) through injury while Nadiem Amiri (muscular), Karim Bellarabi (ill) and Patrik Schick (groin) are doubtful. Expected to start, as usual, is wing-back Jeremie Frimpong; the Dutchman was involved in at least two goals in a single Bundesliga game for the fifth time this season against Bremen last weekend – no player has managed this more often. He has had a hand in multiple goals in three games in the second half of the season – a league-high.
