Bayer Leverkusen take on the visitors Bayern Munich in the round 21 match of German Bundesliga. The match will be played on Saturday, February 10th at BayArena (Leverkusen).
Bayer showed unique statistics this season. The Aspirin team is the only club of a more or less serious level that has reached February without losing a single official match. And this applies to all tournaments they've participated in. This includes the Europa League, where last season's semifinalists confidently won their group. And in the cup, where they managed to win against Stuttgart on Tuesday, despite conceding first, and advance to the next round. The priority remains, undoubtedly, the Bundesliga 1. After all, the representative from Leverkusen is seriously competing for a silver salad bowl. However, the growing buzz of expectations and the unofficial status of Neverkusen are pressing hard: they constantly lag behind in the race, leading to half a dozen runner-up finishes and no titles. In January, despite all the advantages, they failed to score against Borussia Mönchengladbach, ending 0-0. Then they faced the weak Darmstadt, whom they defeated without any problems.

Bayern admitted disappointment in Julian Nagelsmann, parting ways with the young coach during the last season, in the spring. But questions arose immediately with Tuchel too: with him, the grandeur of the club had already been eliminated from the Champions League and the German Cup, and they held onto first place practically by chance – thanks to a draw between Borussia Dortmund and Mainz on the final matchday. Thomas didn't fully redeem himself even after the summer break, during which the squad was reinforced with newcomers like Kim and Keane. It all started with a 0-3 loss in the Super Cup to RB Leipzig. Then there was the humiliating cup defeat to Saarbrücken, which is currently in the third division of the country. And in the Bundesliga, they've been practically trailing behind the pharmacists from the start. In January, the gap widened even further when they unexpectedly lost to Werder in Munich. In the last round, the grand club played against Mönchengladbach itself. The Foals even opened the scoring, but in the end, they managed to win against them with a score of 3-1 – and it wasn't without another goal scored by the English striker.
Last season, both sides exchanged victories at home. And in September in Munich, despite conceding twice first, the Aspirin team managed to snatch a 2-2 draw. Judging by the odds, the chances seem quite equal, with the champions even being given an advantage away from home. But the pharmacists have a chance to extend their outstanding streak – let's bet that they won't lose in their hometown of Leverkusen.
Prediction for the match: Bayer Leverkusen not to lose (1X).
