In their home matches there are a few frequent results: at half‑time 1‑0 (3 out of 8 matches) and after the 90' 2‑2 (3 out of 8 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored at least one goal in each of the last 10 matches for this competition.

Before the winter break, Bayer Leverkusen had an excellent time, taking the 4th position of the championship and passed the next phase of the German Cup. In the last game for the championship, the home team added a surprising 4-4 draw against Hannover. Bayer Leverkusen made two friendly appearances during the interval without official matches: they defeated Greuther Furth by (2-1) and drew (2-2) at Munster. Usually coach Heiko Herrlich brings an offensive team to the field, organizes in 4-3-3, with Volland being the loosest man on the front line: this player is the team's top scorer with 9 goals scored. We emphasize that the places have presented interesting notes in the maintenance of ball possession and in the finalization, however, the defensive line is the weakest sector. For this game the coach can count on all his players.

Confirmed Lineup: B. Leno, S. Bender, J. Tah, Wendell, K. Bellarabi, K. Havertz, D. Kohr, L. Bender, K. Volland, L. Bailey, J. Brandt.
Coach: H. Herrlich.

Defensive consistency has been one of their best features, as they have only conceded goals in 3 of the last 10 matches, and their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored at least one goal in each of the last 10 matches for this competition. This is a team that likes to score first.

A year goes by and history repeats itself in this German championship. Currently Bayern Munich lead the competition with eleven points more than Schalke 04, and only a miracle is that it can take away the team from the German title. In the last game for the championship the away team beat Stuttgart, by (0-1). In the winter break, Bayern Munich triumphed in two friendly against Ahli Doha and Großaspach. Despite playing away from home, manager Jupp Heynckes should use the usual 4-3-3 to benefit possession and organized attacks: James Rodríguez is responsible for creating and organizing the offensive process. On the other hand, Robert Lewandowski is the great highlight of the team with 15 goals scored. It is important to remember that the away team present great quality in set pieces, ball possession, counterattack and in the finalization. It seems that the coach does not have Neuer and Thiago Alcantara, both for injury.

Confirmed Lineup: S. Ulreich, J. Boateng, Rafinha, N. Süle, D. Alaba, A. Robben, J. Rodríguez, F. Ribéry, Javi Martínez, A. Vidal, T. Müller.
Coach: J. Heynckes.

Betting suggestion:

The market we suggest for this game is Bayer Munich's triumph. Due to the prolonged winter break, the teams enter this journey without much information on the form of their opponent, however, they must enter the field at maximum force. It is important to emphasize that Bayern Munich is going through an excellent season in the championship and aims to continue on the track of triumphs. Given this, and given the game markets, we think that Bayer Munich's Odd is very high, and for this reason, we suggest betting on the away team.
