[ClevPicks Prediction]: Bayern vs. Leverkusen: Football Predictions Today!


Will Sadio Mane and Patrik Schick (l-r.) be among the goals when Bayern Munich host Bayer Leverkusen?

Sadio Mane will be relied upon by Bayern Munich to help them defeat Bayer Leverkusen on Friday (kick-off: 8.30pm CEST).


Bayern has recently defeated Inter Milan and Barcelona by scores of 2-0 each in the UEFA Champions League, but the team entered the September international break with a four-game losing streak in the Bundesliga. The defending champions suffered a shocking 1-0 loss in Augsburg after being held to three consecutive draws by Borussia Mönchengladbach, Bundesliga leaders Union Berlin, and VfB Stuttgart. As a result, Julian Nagelsmann's squad dropped to fifth place, five points behind first place. Although Mane was on target for Senegal in a friendly victory over Bolivia at the weekend, he has been unable to add to his three Bundesliga goals in that period. Meanwhile, the supply line should be manned by Jamal Musiala, Thomas Müller, and Leroy Sane, three of the six Bayern players who competed for Germany in UEFA Nations League. After pulling out of international duty with Covid-19, goalkeeper Manuel Neuer and Leon Goretzka are anticipated return; the latter will face off against Marcel Sabitzer for a starting berth alongside Joshua Kimmich. After missing three games due to a hamstring injury, French winger Kingsley Coman is already back in training, leaving just Lucas Hernandez, a defender from Nagelsmann's own country, as a significant absence.

Leverkusen is not one of the teams vying for positions towards the top of the league, as in previous seasons. Gerardo Seoane's Bayer, who finished third in the overall standings previous season, have instead been decimated by a severe case of second-season sickness. They have only collected five of the first 21 available points, but they start the weekend ahead of the bottom three on goal differential. Borussia Dortmund, Hoffenheim, and Freiburg, three of the league's top-four teams, have already defeated Die Werkself. Their lone league victory thus far came against Mainz on Matchday 4. Despite this, they have three unbeaten games in competitive play, sandwiching a stunning 2-0 Champions League victory against Atletico Madrid with draws against Hertha Berlin and Werder Bremen. Due to the continued absence of Amine Adli, Exequiel Palacios, and Florian Wirtz, Seoane might continue to use the same lineup that defeated Bremen before the break. Jeremie Frimpong, a Dutch fullback who Ghana is apparently courting ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, may so continue as an offensive winger. Sardar Azmoun and Adam Hlozek appear to have fallen behind Callum Hudson-Odoi, a Chelsea loanee, in the attacking pecking order.

Match Stats

Mane has played four games in all categories at the Allianz Arena without a goal, but he has had four attempts disallowed for offside.

Bayern has not lost five consecutive Bundesliga games since November-December 2001.

Bayern's 12 points are their fewest at this point in the season since they finished third behind Leverkusen and the unexpected champions Borussia Dortmund in 2010–11.

Leverkusen's unexpected top scorer this season is midfielder Kerem Demirbay, who has three goals. Schick, a striker who only has two goals less than Robert Lewandowski in 2021–2022, has two goals.

In 28 Bundesliga games played away from Bayern, Leverkusen has only won two and lost 22.

After seven games, only Bochum (19), Schalke (14) and Eintracht Frankfurt (13) have allowed more goals than Leverkusen (12).

Possible Lineups

Bayern: Neuer (c) - Pavard, Upamecano, de Ligt, Davies - Kimmich, Goretzka - Sane, Müller, Musiala - Mane

Out: Hernandez (groin), Sarr (patella tendon)

Doubtful: Coman (fitness)

Coach: Julian Nagelsmann

Leverkusen: Hradecky (c) - Kossounou, Tah, Tapsoba, Hincapie - Andrich, Demirbay - Frimpong, Hudson-Odoi, Diaby - Schick

Out: Adli (collarbone), Bellarabi (knee), Lunev (thigh), Palacios (hamstring), Wirtz (cruciate ligament)

Doubtful: -

Coach: Gerardo Seoane


When Bayern plays Leverkusen on Friday, we anticipate that the international break will have helped the team calm down and get back to winning.

The visitors clearly possess the offensive capabilities to negatively impact the Bavarians during a transition, but they are currently lacking in confidence and typically do not respond well to any losses or extended periods of pressure.

I believe the predictions are gonna be miserable, and that's why we offer different predictions, but don't worry, we just offer 1 prediction on 1 aspect, like over 2.5 OR under 2.5, we don't offer under 2.5 AND over 2.5, no.
