Kick off: 12 January 21:00
Leverkusen have a fully fit squad heading into this from the Bundesliga’s winter break. A big part of the reason why Leverkusen have improved so markedly this term has been the play of winger Leon Bailey. The Jamaican is an absolute speedster and he is also highly skilled, and that has caused more than a couple of clubs to start to take notice. Against a team like Bayern, who are great on the ball, he can be the perfect weapon to counter for them and give them a foothold in the game. Bayern Munich will be without Robert Lewandowski (knee tendon problem) and Mats Hummels for the 2018 opener. The Bavarians also have an injury doubt in young right back Joshua Kimmich. Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer and midfielder Thiago also remain sidelined.
Prediction: Over 3,5 goals
