The league's best away team takes to the road

Postby FCBayernNews » Sat Feb 02, 2019 10:00 am

FC Bayern have won 24 of a possible 30 points on their league travels this season, which is the best haul in the Bundesliga. The Munich side have in fact returned victorious from their last four away games, and they’ll be out to continue that on Saturday when Niko Kovac takes his team to Bayer Leverkusen. fcbayern.com has a few interesting facts and figures to warm you up for Matchday 20.

Clear advantage

Bayern and Leverkusen have met on 79 previous occasions in the Bundesliga, with the record champions winning 47 of them (D16, L16). In that time the Reds have netted 150 goals and conceded just 91. FCB also boast an impressive record in Leverkusen with 16 victories from 39 visits (D10, L13; F57, A57).

In form

Bayern are also on a good run of form as the only Bundesliga club to win their last seven league fixtures. It’s the longest winning streak in Kovac’s coaching career, but Leverkusen are also in decent shape with five victories from their last eight (D1, L2).

Attacking firepower

In Leon Goretzka, Bayern have the top scorer in the Bundesliga for 2019 with three goals. The 23-year-old has found the back of the net five times in total this campaign, which is already one more than he managed in the whole of last season. And then there’s Robert Lewandowski, who netted his 24th goal in his 26th match of 2018/19 last time out – only Lionel Messi has more to his name this term in Europe’s top five leagues (26). On the other side, Leverkusen have shown more attacking impetus in Peter Bosz’s new 4-3-3 system where they’ve had a league-high 45 efforts on goal in the first two games since the winter break.

Odds on 3-1?

For those wanting to look into the future, it might be best to look to the past. That’s because the last three league meetings have all ended in 3-1 wins for Bayern…

We’re also not the best away team anymore... We’re still the best at giving away leads though

Only once did we drop points when we didn’t lead... All other losses and draws were after one or even two time leads... Good times...
