Bolt's pal Bailey out to dazzle Bayern

Robert Lewandowski stretches with the use of a resistance band around his legs

Heynckes' side restarts the league on Friday at another of his former clubs, Bayer Leverkusen, which has lost only one of its last eight home games against Bayern and has made a solid start to the season under new coach Heiko Herrlich.

Once both teams settled into the game and began to focus on controlling possession, Bayern started to assert their dominance and take charge of proceedings.

Leverkusen lacked in clear-cut chances in the first half but after the restart Leon Bailey nearly levelled the scores but his effort rattled only the bar with 54 minutes played.

Heynckes affirmed at a news meeting that Lewandowski and protector Mats Hummels will miss the excursion to Leverkusen after the team were not able take a full part in preparing this week.

The midfield system worked perfectly for the Bavarians, with Vidal and Martinez holding down the base, allowing Rodriguez to flourish, as the Colombian pulled the strings for the visitors, linking midfield to attack.

But Bayern have won six competitive matches in a row, and 15 of their last 16. They've gone 12 Bundesliga games without defeat.

Bayern Munich's players poses during the UEFA Champions League football match between Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich on September 27, 2017 at the Parc des Princes stadium in Paris.


"Mark Uth is now the best German goal scorer in the Bundesliga and will really improve our attacking options from the summer", said Schalke sporting director Christian Heidel.

Ribery, who has spent a decade at Bayern, rolled back the years by scything through Leverkusen's defence and slamming home Bayern's superb second goal.

"At Bayer, we have had players who have aroused great interest and are on the wish list of other clubs for years".

Jupp Heynckes' side sit 14 points clear at the top of the table in pursuit of a sixth successive title.

Bayern's season changed dramatically after Carlo Ancelotti left the Allianz Arena.

Die Roten will be keen to continue their strong form, and fans can expect more silverware to be added to the ever-growing trophy cabinet in Munich.
