Bayer Leverkusen host Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga on Saturday afternoon.

Bayer Leverkusen take on Bayern Munich in the biggest clash of the Bundesliga weekend on Saturday afternoon.

The two sides sit third and second respectively, each having dropped points in just one game so far.

The hosts have won their last three league games, most recently a 2-0 victory over Hannover and it is the same story for Bayern, who beat Wolfsburg by a single goal.

Gonzalo Castro remains out for the hosts, which is a blow for them, while Bayern are still waiting for the return of Javi Martinez and Thiago Alcantara.
