After a faultless restart, beating fierce rivals and closest challengers Borussia Dortmund in the process, it appears Bayern Munich are set to wrap up an eighth consecutive Bundesliga title with room to spare.

Hansi Flick's side still have some tough fixtures to negotiate, however, and none more so than this weekend's trip to face Bayer Leverkusen.

Peter Bosz's side have very real targets of their own after all, in a fierce battle for a top four finish, and barring a shock blip against Wolfsburg have also returned to action in the sort of impressive form they left off.

All eyes will be on the battle of the two talismanic forwards, with Kai Havertz hoping to continue his own excellent form up against Robert Lewandowski, but we've steered clear of both in this week's massive 50/1 Request A Bet from Sky Bet...

Over 3.5 goals

With both the leading goalscorer in the league and top scorer since the return to action on display this Saturday, goals will surely be the order of the day, even if they come from less a familiar source. Leverkusen have proven a very tough opponent to the champions after all, upsetting the odds in their last two meetings, while losing just one of their last five against Bayern on home soil in the league. 

While outcomes have been unpredictable, however, one thing that has remained consistent is an abundance of goals, and at both ends for that matter. Each of the last six meetings between the sides have seen both teams score, with at least four goals in total in five of said matches.

Leon Goretzka to score

Coming into the side in the absence of the injured Thiago, Leon Goretzka has made a real impact since the season resumed, starting all four matches. Stretching back before the break, the midfielder has scored three goals in his last six league outings. Given the value on Lewandowski to score is almost non-existent - the Pole has actually only scored one goal in eight league meetings in this fixture - Goretzka is worth considering having found the net in last season's defeat at the BayArena and three times in total against B04.

Leon Bailey to score

As for the hosts, there's no doubt the most popular goalscorer punt will be on Havertz, and understandably so given he has scored more times (5) than any other player in the Bundesliga since the restart. However, the youngster has generally been stronger on the road this season - with just three of 11 league goals coming at home - and he's never scored against Bayern.

One player, however, who has proven a constant thorn in the Bavarians' side in recent seasons is Leon Bailey. The Jamaican's pace and directness has caused Bayern all sorts of problems in the past, and while he has endured a difficult season in terms of playing time, the winger started last time out and should have done enough to keep his place. It would be a surprise if he didn't having scored four goals in the last four meetings between the sides, including a match winning brace in the reverse fixture in November.

Charles Aranguiz to be carded

It may seem strange to tip a player that has been booked just once all season to pick up only his second yellow of the campaign, but hear me out! The Chilean is the real enforcer in the Leverkusen midfield and will have a crucial task on his hand if the hosts are to avoid being overrun in that area of the pitch. It's a role he has been tasked with in this fixture in the past, with the reverse meeting between the sides seeing Aranguiz end a run of yellow cards in four consecutive matches against Bayern.
