Bayern Munich Vs Bayern Leverkusen
The international break came at an ideal time for Bayern Munich and perhaps more so for their manager, Julian Nagelsmann, as the ten time consecutive Bundesliga Champion sit five points off the title pace following a four game winless league run.
The absence of a typical number nine profile has been an issue for Bayern, evidence by the fact that the serial Bundesliga winners failed to score more than a goal in three of their last four games. Bayern's sporting director Hassan vowed that his side will show a "different face" after the break, and with Kingsley Coman returning from injury, Nagelsmann may opt to try him out up to top in a bid to stop their relative lull in form.
Another side not performing up to their usual high standards are opponents Bayern Leverkusen who could only draw 1-1 against Werder Bremen last time out, making it one league win in seven for Gerardo Seoane's men.
There are a positive ahead of this clash though as not only have the visitors enjoyed the chance to regroup over the International break, but they also boast having picked up four points away to Bayern Munich across the last three visits.
The prediction here will be Both teams scoring a goal.
