A late-night battle on Saturday will contest two Bundesliga giants vying for possession as Bayern Munich will host Bayer Leverkusen at the Allianz Arena.

Bayern Munich continued their exquisite form as they scored six goals against Red Star Belgrade in the midweek Champions League clash. Having already progressed to the round of 16, the 2013 European champions further cemented their position as the group leaders in UCL with a game to spare.

Hansi Flick has now made it four wins in four competitive fixtures without conceding a goal so far. In their next fixture, Bayern will aim to continue their current form as they welcome Peter Bosz’s Bayer Leverkusen in Bavaria.

While Die Werkself hopes of qualifying for the next round of UCL hangs by thread, they are expected to give a tough fight at the Allianz Arena. They come into this game after a comfortable two-nil victory against Lokomotiv in Moscow. Leverkusen, ninth in the league table, can move into Champions League places with a win on Saturday.
