Bayern Munich face Bayer Leverkusen at Allianz Arena on Saturday, Sept. 15. Here’s all the info you need to watch online.
Following the international break, the Bundesliga resumes this weekend. Bayern Munich return to the Allianz Arena on Saturday to play Bayer Leverkusen. After two games, Bayern are once again on top of the Bundesliga table. Leverkusen have had an awful start to the season, losing both of their games. After finishing level on points with Borussia Dortmund and Hoffenheim last season, expectations were high for the club but are in danger of starting the season with three straight losses.
Bayern defeated Stuttgart 3-0 in their last game before the break. Thomas Muller and Robert Lewandowski both scored for the second game this season. Bayern’s attack will continue to run through Lewandowski while he remains at the club. New manager Niko Kovac has rotated his midfield and wingers through the first two games. Bayern have tried and failed for years to find replacements for Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben. Serge Gnabry is the latest player that Bayern will give playing time to, hoping that he can replace one of the club legends.
Bayer Leverkusen have one of the youngest and most exciting teams in the Bundesliga. Julian Brandt and Leon Bailey are two of the most exciting wingers in Germany. However, the club has struggled to start the season. Bailey’s goal in Leverkusen’s 3-1 loss to Wolfsburg is the club’s only goal this season. At the opposite end of the pitch, Jonathan Tah and Sven Bender will be busy trying to keep Lewandowski from getting space inside of the box. Bender missed both of Leverkusen’s games to start the season and has been sorely missed, with the club allowing five goals. Kai Havertz received his first international cap during the break. The 19-year-old can play anywhere in the midfield and should be one of the faces for the German national team for the next decade.
The Bundesliga match between Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen will be broadcast on FS1. Live streaming is available on Fox Sports Go, which you can access with your cable or satellite subscription, either online or through their app.
Bayern defeated Leverkusen 3-1 in both games last season. Leverkusen have not defeated Bayern since the end of the 2014-15 season.
