#Brighton’s metrics have been of the highest quality this season. But they also show De Zerbi where he can improve.

The #Dolphins suffer their first defeat of the season in Cincinnati. A statement win over an in-form team moves the #Bengals up to .500 and back on track after a tricky start.

Top two battle

The top two face off in the Bundesliga as in-form Bayer Leverkusen host Bayern Munich in the last game for the two sides before the winter break.


Bayer Leverkusen

Bayer Leverkusen are still unbeaten and head the table with eight wins and four draws from their 12 games.


Last match

Peter Bosz’s side battered local rivals FC Köln 4-0 in midweek to make a big statement ahead of the big match against Bayern. Mitchell Weiser, who was a late addition to the side after Sven Bender’s injury, scored after eight minutes with a thunderous volley.

Moussa Diaby added a second to make it 2-0 after 10 minutes, dribbling at pace and curling in a shot into the corner.

Patrik Schick and Florian Wirtz both scored in the second half to complete the rout.

Wirtz, who scored last weekend against Hoffenheim, became only the fifth player in Bundesliga history to have scored three goals before his 18th birthday. He is the youngest player to reach that mark.


Bayern Munich

Robert Lewandowski scored his 250th Bundesliga goal as Bayern  went behind for the sixth consecutive Bundesliga game, but managed to fight back and win 2-1 against Wolfsburg.

The win for Bayern ended Wolfsburg’s unbeaten record in the Bundesliga this season.


Lewandowski record

Maximillian Philipp met Kevin Mbabu’s cross on the volley to give Wolfsburg the lead in the fifth minute but the Pole equalised on the stroke of half-time with a superb header from Kingsley Coman’s cross.

The goal was his 250th in the Bundesliga, becoming only the third player in Bundesliga history to achieve that feat.

It was 23rd goal against Wolfsburg in 20 Bundesliga appearances.

Stats

Leon Bailey will be looking to continue his good form against Bayern; he has scored or assisted in seven of Bayer Leverkusen’s last nine games. He has scored nine goals in his last nine games.

Leverkusen have won two of their last three meetings with Bayern, and have lost just three of their last 11 home games against them (three wins, five draws).
