Bayern Munich Predicted Lineup vs. Bayer Leverkusen

It is of course true, that a league table after three rounds of play in any given season, anywhere in the world is on its face quite useless. But even so, Bayern Munich’s top-of-the-league clash with Bayer Leverkusen on Friday evening has the potential to be a fantastic match.

The Bavarians go into this encounter with three wins out of three and a plus seven goal difference, while their opponents also won all three of their first Bundesliga games, but by a plus eight combined margin. This of course means that Bayern Munich will enter into a high-stakes domestic league match (which this match undoubtedly is, regardless of the timing) only in second place. These two teams are the only ones left with a 100% record in the league after the first three rounds. As much as the German media have tried to hype up this game, they were certainly not wrong to do so.

Munich and Leverkusen have not only won all of their match-ups so far, but they have done so playing the most attractive football in the process. As strange as the comparisons between Harry Kane and new striker Victor Boniface or, the ones between coaches Thomas Tuchel and Xabi Alonso may be, there is no doubt that the away side may become a credible threat to the Bavarian’s title ambitions this season. It is up to them to win and send a signal to the league leaders and the rest of the league in the process. We break down the Bayern Munich predicted lineup here.

How Bayern Munich Have Lined up Recently

They tend to line up in a 4-2-3-1 and there is no reason whatsoever to tinker with that. There are a number of unknowns as far as individual positions within that system. Konrad Laimer has done well at right-back as a substitute last time out, but he might be needed elsewhere.

Kingsley Coman or Serge Gnabry is another big question for the offensive left-winger position. One thing is certain, Kane will be leading the line after his big-money move in the summer.

Bayern Munich Injuries Affecting the Team

Manuel Neuer remains out injured for now, while Joshua Kimmich is a doubt for Friday after coming back from the German national team hurt, as Tuchel explained to the media Thursday. Meanwhile, Raphaël Guerreiro and Jamal Musiala have returned from injury, but are not likely to start.
