Thanks to a fully healthy group available for selection, Bayer Leverkusen manager Hannes Wolf has zero fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this match.
For this match, we think that Bayer Leverkusen have it in them to breach the defence of this Bayern Munich outfit, but that probably won’t be enough to avoid defeat. I can see a very close game with a 2-1 winning margin for Bayern Munich at the end of the 90 minutes. There looks to be little in this one.
