Date: Saturday 26th November Venue: Allianz Arena Competition: Bundesliga KO: 17.30
Bayern Munich are still without Kingsley Coman and have a number of players doubtful for this game.
Manuel Neuer is a doubt and could be replaced by Sven Ulreich. Javi Martinez could drop into a defensive role.
Bayer Leverkusen winger Karim Bellarabi is still out and Stefan Kiessling and Lars Bender are doubts.
Kevin Volland will play just behind Javier Hernandez up front.
Both these sides lost in the Bundesliga last weekend. Bayern lost 1-0 away at Borussia Dortmund in Der Klassiker and Leverkusen went down 3-2 at home to Reb Bull Leipzig and will hope to bounce back from those disappointments.
Bayern also lost in the Champions League in midweek and are experiencing a slump in form. Leverkusen could be on the end of a backlash from the champions but they do have enough fire power in their armory to hurt the Bavarians.
Expect Bayern to dominate this game and Leverkusen will try and counter attack as Bayern push forwards. With the likes of Neuer of Jerome Boateng likely to miss the game, Leverkusen have a chance going forward.
Bayern have won four of the last six games between these two sides.
Both teams played away in Russia in the Champions League this week, neither won their game.
Bayern are undefeated in 11 home games.
Bayern: Ulreich; Lahm, Martinez, Hummels, Alaba; Kimmich, Alonso, Vidal; Muller, Lewandowski, Costa
Leverkusen: Leno; Henrichs, Tah, Toprak, Wendel; Baumgartlinger, Kampl; Brandt, Volland, Calhanoglu; Hernandez
Prediction: Bayern 3-1 Leverkusen
