Why Are Bayern Munich so Brilliant in the Bundesliga?

Bayern Munich have won the last seven Bundesliga titles and they’re definitely going to make it eight after a blistering restart to the season. Four games played, four games won and a bucketload of goals scored. They are truly unstoppable on a domestic front.

We know that Bayern have got shedloads of money and that clearly helps them to enjoy this level of success, although perhaps this is the best ever Bayern Munich team who are brilliant in all departments.

They have the world’s deadliest striker in Robert Lewandowski, the brightest young player in left-wing-back Alphonso Davies and a dynamic midfielder in the form of Joshua Kimmich. We could go on…

Should We Back Bayern for the Champions League?

Although few bookies are offering Champions League outright betting odds right now, you can bet on the 2019/20 winner on the Betfair Exchange. It’s noticeable that Bayern have crept to the top of the market over the past few weeks and Hansi Flick’s side have definitely got the jump over their European rivals who are yet to get going.

It’s easy enough to see Manuel Neuer lift the trophy later this year, with Thomas Muller having a spring in his step at the moment and Bayern will want to be a side that everyone else wants to avoid.

Do Bayer Leverkusen Stand Any Chance?

Yes they do. This is going to be a tricky assignment for Bayern who will show their opponents plenty of respect. Let’s remember that the Munchen side only claimed a 1-0 victory away to Dortmund and didn’t show a huge amount of ambition to score more goals once they had their noses in front.

Leverkusen are a really decent team and they have the brilliant Kai Havertz who is tearing it up in the Bundesliga and will relish the opportunity to line up against such formidable opponents, with Bayern Munich likely to be keen to sign the 20-year-old this summer.

Die Werkself are arguably the third best team in Germany and the only blip they’ve experienced post-lockdown has been a 4-1 humbling at home to Wolfsburg where the team dropped well below their usual levels.

You can back Bayer Leverkusen at 6.00 to win this match although it just seems out of the question to back any team to beat Bayern right now, especially with the visitors in such excellent nick defensively.

What are the Best Bets for This Match?

We’re working on the basis that Bayern are going to win the match. They are in outstanding form and it would take an unreal performance from Leverkusen to live with the new Champions League favourites.

Defensively, Flick’s team have been amazing bar a couple of Eintracht Frankfurt consolation goals. It was particularly noticeable that Bayern were solid defensively away to Union Berlin and Borussia Dortmund.

On that note, we are going to chance a 1-0 away win at huge odds. The bookies naturally anticipate a higher-scoring encounter, although we think that Bayern will be happy to defend a lead and aim to pick off their opponents if further chances arise.
