Bayern Munich vs Bayer Leverkusen Betting Tips & Bundesliga Odds | Sat 5th March
The standout Bundesliga fixture this weekend is Bayern Munich hosting Bayer Leverkusen and we have plenty of betting odds, tips and more!
A mouth-watering clash at the Allianz Arena awaits this Saturday afternoon, with third-placed Leverkusen hoping to shock the hosts and cement their place further in the Champions League qualification spots.
Bayern Munich, relentless once again in the Bundesliga, are marching towards a tenth-straight title. Ridiculously impressive. Furthermore, they have won 10 of their 12 matches at home this campaign and are short odds of 4/1 for this, so the visitors are up against it and priced 11/2.
A glimmer of hope, though, lies in attack as Frenchman Moussa Diaby has been fantastic goal-scoring form of late with seven goals and one assist in seven games. It’s a huge shame, however, that striker Patrik Schick has been ruled out with calf injury, unable to add to his 20 goals this season.
For the neutral, they’ll be hoping for an entertaining goalfest. Bayern to win and both to teams to score offers some value at 20/23.

Lewandowski to score first is 2/1, while wideman Diaby is a huge 14/1 to open the scoring and a very appealing 3/1 anytime goalscorer price.

Bayern to win 3-0, 3-1 or 3-2 has been boosted to 10/3, while Leverkusen to with either half has been boosted up to 9/4.
PREDICTION: We fancy goals from both teams but think Bayern will just edge it, perhaps 2-1 or 3-2.
