The German Bundesliga rolls into match day 30 this weekend with fantastic league action and fixtures. During this weekend, the German Bundesliga giants, Bayern Munich, face another tough test as they visit the BayArena to duke it out with Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday, June 06, 2020, as the Bundesliga continues to roll to its end. The defending champions of the league move another step closer to their eighth consecutive Bundesliga title win.
Die Roten are on top of the league table and are seven points ahead of the second-place Borussia Dortmund. Having recorded 67 points, Bayern Munich has won an excellent five matches out of their previous five league matches. And, coming into this game, the toppers trashed Fortuna Düsseldorf 5-0 to extend their lead and closeness to the league title. Last week's 5-0 win over Düsseldorf also extended Bayern Munich's winning run to nine games in all European league competition, which included the Champions League win against the English side Chelsea in February and a lone goal title-deciding win against Borussia Dortmund at the Signal Iduna Park last two weeks. Overall, Bayern Munich has won an astonishing 21 games out of 29 league matches played during this season.
In their last match, Bayern Munich hosted the 16th placed relegated Fortuna Düsseldorf and thrashed them by 5 goals to nil last weekend. Bayern scored three goals in the first half of the game, with an own goal from Mathia Jorgensen in the 15th minute of the game before Benjamin Parvard's header to double Bayern Munich's lead. Hot-blazing Robert Lewandowski netted a brace to become the Bundesliga's highest goal scorer of the season with 29 goals, followed by Timo Werner and Jason Sancho. Two minutes later, Alphonso Davies scored a brilliant goal to record a 5-0 lead over Dusseldorf. Bayern Munich ultimately held the relegating team back, recording 23 goal attempts and 67% ball possession.
Bayer Leverkusen is looking to ascend on the league table to book the final Champions League spot, showing an excellent form since the return of the league action in May, winning three out of their four last league matches. After a shocking 4-1 home defeat to Wolfsburg last week, the home side recorded an impressive recovery with a lone goal away lead over SC Freiburg last weekend. Overall, Bayer Leverkusen has won 17 matches out of 29 league matches played, with five draws and seven losses. The Peter Bosz side enter match day 30 with 56 points in the fifth place, tied with the fourth-placed Borussia Mönchengladbach occupying the final Champions League spot. This means that a slight mistake will hurt Bayer Leverkusen's participation in the Champions League next season.
In their previous match, Bayer Leverkusen was held at a stalemate by SC Freiburg with a goalless draw till the end of the halftime. However, a few minutes after the start of the second half, Kai Havertz broke the tie with a low, close-range shot into the back of the net in the 54th minute of the game. Although Freiburg tried very hard to turn things around, Bayer Leverkusen successfully held up the home side, thanks to Lucas Hradecky's fantabulous save, to help Leverkusen seal their three-point win.
In the last six meetings between the two contenders, Bayern Munich was able to secure four wins with zero matches drawn. Led by Robert Lewandowski, Bayern's attack is formidable. Also, Manuel Neuer has 13 clean sheets out of 29 games. In comparison, Leverkusen's Lucas Hradecky has nine clean sheets out of 29 league matches played so far.
