Having kept three cleansheets in their last four matches, Bayer Leverkusen have had their backline to massively credit for their consummate success. And Lukas Hradecky has been integral to that fortitude, a shot stopper whose acumen has seen him resist everything thrown down his way.
A massive reason for Bayern Munich sitting in second place is their defensive setup. The club has far from looked the sound and compact backline it was the last time around, a club which always looks there for the taking.
However, they did manage a cleansheet the last time around, one which did enough to see us opt for Lucas Hernandez, David Alaba and Jerome Boateng.
Serge Gnabry’s four goals were more than enough to see us opt for the Bayern Munich with midfielder Leon Goretzka linking up with him for today. Bayern Leverkusen will see us opt for the partnership of five assist Nadiem Amiri and Florian Wirtz who has helped himself to the four assists, two names who have moved in tandem to craft goals for the side.
In Alario’s absence, all the onus of scoring will lie squarely on Leon Bailey today. And he’s shown it’s a role he’s more than willing to take up with him having both scored and assisted on the four occasions.
Named the FIFA footballer of the year for his sensational goal scoring form across the last year, Bayern Munich’s top scorer, striker Robert Lewandowksi was a must have pick for us. Thomas Muller as ever will partner up with him owing to his 6 goals and 6 assists.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Robert’s 15 goals and 4 assists see him captain our side while Muller is the vice-captain.
Hradecky, Boateng, Hernandez, Alaba, Gnabry, Leon, Amiri, Wirtz, Robert, Muller, Bailey
