Bundesliga fixtures in 2023/24 don’t come much bigger than Bayer Leverkusen vs Bayern Munich today. The unbeaten table toppers host the German giants who have won the past 11 league titles, the winner ending the day at the summit – and you can watch a Bayer Leverkusen vs Bayern Munich live stream from anywhere with a VPN.
The teams are in and Bayer Leverkusen are missing top scorer Victor Boniface and midfielder Arthur for this top-of-the-table clash but Florian Wirtz starts as expected. Winger Nathan Tella is also in from the off, with Granit Xhaka and Robert Andrich also starting.
For Bayern, Harry Kane, Leroy Sane and Jamal Musiala all start as expected, while Sacha Boey makes his first start at full-back following his recent signing from Galatasaray following the news that left-back flyer Alphonso Davies has a knee injury. Eric Dier keeps his place in defence, with Davot Upamecano returning alongside Kim Min-jae in what appears a back three.
Bayer Leverkusen vs Bayern Munich live stream, Date, Time, Channels
His side top of the Bundesliga and unbeaten after 20 games, Xabi Alonso’s first full season in charge of Leverkusen could scarcely have gone much better. Just under seven years ago, the midfield metronome ended a stellar playing career at Bayern and now welcomes Die Roten to the BayArena with Bayer sat two points clear. Neverkusen – so-called because of the infamous 2001/02 season in which they were Bundesliga, Champions League and German Cup runners-up – may be yet to lift the Meisterschale in their history, but Alonso has Die Werkself playing high-pressing football from the gods. Top scorer Victor Boniface is the deadly marksman, but it’s playmaker Florian Wirtz – eight goals and 15 assists in all competitions – who most quickens the pulse in North Rhine-Westphalia.
Spurs Bayern be without Harry Kane? The England captain has plundered 28 goals in all competitions since his summer switch from North London – no other Roten player has managed double figures – and FC Hollywood have quickly come to rely on their new No.9. Yet all is not rosy in Bavaria. Head coach Thomas Tuchel has made the odd eye flutter towards Real Madrid this season, while Die Roten have been knocked out of the German Cup by third-tier opposition, lost 5-1 to Eintracht Frankfurt and have been second for much of the campaign in the Bundesliga, a competition they have won for the past 11 years in a row. Lose to Bayer and they’re five points adrift, win and they go top by a point. It’s massive.
