Our football match prediction:
All eyes will be on Allianz Arena when Bayern Munchen and Bayer Leverkusen face each other in the opening match of the season. The mighty Bavarians are seen as No. 1 favourites to win the Bundesliga title, but they were playing below expectations in pre-season. Carlo Ancelotti’s men suffered a heavy 3-0 loss to Liverpool at the 2017 Audi Cup, but they proved their worth in a win over Borussia Dortmund in the German Super Cup. Bayern Munich defeated the Millionaires on penalties at Signall-Iduna-Park and they will be looking to build on the triumph when they welcome Bayer Leverkusen at their Allianz Arena. Javier Hernandez Chicharito left the BayArena outfit earlier this summer and seeing that Carlo Ancelotti’s troops are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we predict that the reigning champions will emerge triumphant in Friday’s football match.
