Bayern Munich will be looking to maintain their good run of form when they host Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday.

The good form for Bayern Munich continued on Tuesday as the German champions clinched an emphatic 6-0 win over Red Bull Salzburg. Die Roten will now turn their attention to a different challenge as they host Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday.

Bayern have won their last two games in the Bundesliga. These wins helped them to move to the third position in the table, one point behind Borussia Monchengladbach. Die Roten are playing an exciting brand of football at the moment, making them even more difficult to beat.

Bayer Leverkusen meanwhile are having an underwhelming season. They currently sit ninth in the table, three points behind the fourth position. Although they are not having great season, their recent form across all competitions has been impressive. A positive performance against Die Roten will further prove that they are slowly and steadily improving under Bosz.
