Bayer Leverkusen are currently sitting pretty at the top of the Bundesliga league, but they’ve got so much riding on this decisive match on Dec. 19.  They face Bayern Munich in a top-of-the-table clash for first place in the Bundesliga before the season continues in 2021. 

Bayer Leverkusen only leads the league by one point, so they will need a decisive victory to stop Bayern Munich overtaking them. Bayer Leverkusen are currently unbeaten this season, and simply can’t afford to end that run against Bayern Munich. Bayer Leverkusen goes into the match ever so slightly in the lead on 8-4-0, with 28 points overall.

Bayern Munich have been no less successful so far, though. Two goals from Robert Lewandowski saw them claim a great come-from-behind victory over Wolsfburg on Dec. 16. They’ve also qualified for the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League, and will face Italian side S. S. Lazio next year. Bayern Munich go into this match against Bayer Leverkusen on 8-3-1 with 27 points overall.
