This game popped up on my radar as the weekend started because of the tip top form these two sides have been on. BAYERN have not exactly fired on all cylinders this season the way they would have want to. BAYER are the surprise package of the Bundesliga so far.
Sometimes you just have to put your hand up and say you have conceded a great goal despite all your best efforts to defend it. BAYERN did everything right in an effort to defend the set piece that led to the opening goal. Schick did not have much of a goal to aim at but still found the gap with the volley. The Ex Roma man clearly has technique, keeping his eye on the ball making his decision early and does not hesitate.
It is always good to shout to your defender as a goalkeeper when you want to retrieve the ball so as not to collude like what Hradecky and Tapsobah did to allow Lewandolski an easy header. BAYERN had a knack of producing young players out of nowhere. Musiala an example. The youngster struck the post on 72 minutes with the Munich side searching for the winner. Leverkusen at the end of the day did not make Neuer work enough and were sucker punched by Lewandolski in injury time. Given space,the Pole punished the tiring Bayer defense to send BAYERN top of the Bundesliga.
