Bayern Munich beats Bayer Leverkusen 3-1 in German Bundesliga

Bayern Munich beats Bayer Leverkusen 3-1 in German Bundesliga

Second-placed Schalke 04 are in action at RB Leipzig on Saturday while Leverkusen stay fourth on 28.

This season the 20-year-old Jamaican has scored six goals, while setting up another four in 14 games in establishing himself as a key player in their dynamic frontline.

The Poland star is returning to full training after a knee injury, but Heynckes opted to start Thomas Mueller up front for Bayern.

However, the goal sparked Leverkusen into life.

Bayern ran out comfortable 3-1 winners over Leverkusen when the teams last met in Munich in August, but Heynckes' side last won away at Leverkusen in 2013.

Bailey joined Leverkusen in January 2017 from Genk for a reported €13.5 million and initially struggled to make a consistent impact, making just eight substitute appearances in the Bundesliga.

Both Ribery and Bayern's other veteran winger Arjen Robben, 34, are out of contract in June and the pair hope to be offered extensions in the coming weeks.

The first goal came about through poor marking at the corner, with Julian Brandt losing Vidal at the back post, and the defence unable to clear the ball before Martinez was on hand to score.

Parents sue for girl, 11, to use medical marijuana at school

Projects involving Carillion in Scotland also include the electrification of the central Scotland railway line through Shotts. The company is thought to require at least £210m in short-term funding to continue operating and implement a turnaround plan.

- Heynckes to stay on?

"We're playing against a really strong team, " Herrlich added.

Germany forward Thomas Mueller said Bayern are back at their best after struggling with fatigue through the final weeks of past year, even if results did not show it.

Time and time again, the back three for the hosts were incapable of clearing their lines, as far too often they presented the ball right back to Bayern's midfielders and attackers, keeping themselves on the back foot.

Barring a huge collapse in form - which doesn't seem likely with how Jupp Heynckes has been running the team since he took over the club earlier this season, which started that impressive run of form - Bayern are going to easily win the Bundesliga, and they'll break a lot of hearts along the way.

Another positive for Mueller is the arrival of Germany striker Sandro Wagner from Hoffenheim, with the burly centre-forward recruited to serve as back-up to the prolific Lewandowski. "He's a German global with ambitions of going to the World Cup in Russian Federation".

Leverkusen boss Herrlich was on Tuesday fined 12,000 euros ($14,368) by the German FA for his theatrical sideline dive in a 1-0 German Cup win against Gladbach last month.
