The top two in the Bundesliga face-off at the BayArena on Sunday when league leaders Bayern Munich travel to their closest challengers Bayer Leverkusen, who trail them only by goal difference.
Leverkusen signed off before the international break with 4-0 wins in both the league and in Europe, so it was not the ideal time for there to be a halt in their momentum, but one man who will have enjoyed the temporary break in club football was Florian Wirtz. The 18-year-old was called up to the German squad for the second time and his form for Leverkusen looks to have nailed down a certain spot in the national setup for the time being.
Leverkusen have scored 29 goals in their 10 competitive matches so far this season, and Wirtz has had a hand in 11 of them, notching up six goals and five assists in just eight matches and they are no strangers to breaching the Bayern Munich backline either.
In their last five meetings at the BayArena, Leverkusen have scored nine times and we're backing Wirtz to net here as he scored in this fixture last season.
