Team News: Robert Lewandowski leads Bayern Munich attack against Bayer Leverkusen

Robert Lewandowski returns to the Bayern Munich starting lineup for the Bundesliga clash with Bayer Leverkusen.

Robert Lewandowski has been recalled by Pep Guardiola for Bayern Munich's match against Bayer Leverkusen at the Allianz Arena.

The Polish striker came off the bench to score the winner in last weekend's victory over Hoffenheim and he returns to the starting lineup to replace Mario Gotze.

Jerome Boateng misses out due to suspension, while Mehdi Benatia is injured, but Guardiola has decided against bringing in a centre-back.

Instead, Xabi Alonso looks set to play in a deeper role for the hosts, but there is a place in the side for Juan Bernat.

After securing a spot in the Champions League group stage with victory over Lazio in midweek, Leverkusen boss Roger Schmidt has kept faith with the same team as Admir Mehmedi, Hakan Calhanoglu and Karim Bellarabi once again start behind lone striker Stefan Kiessling.

Bayern Munich: Neuer; Lahm, Alonso, Alaba, Bernat; Thiago Robben, Vidal, Douglas Costa; Muller, Lewandowski

Bayer Leverkusen: Leno; Hilbert, Tah, Papadopoulos, Wendell; Kramer, Bender; Bellarabi, Calhanoglu, Mehmedi; Kiessling
