Leverkusen Hopes to Humble Bayern, Again

MOST COMMENTED

Bayer Leverkusen coach Sami Hyypia knows that his team must be at its best if it is to replicate last season’s 2-1 win away to Bayern Munich -- the only loss suffered by the eventual champion throughout the entire 2012/-13 Bundesliga campaign. Though the European champion is in commanding form again this season, third-place Leverkusen is just one point behind heading into the weekend.

According to Hyypia, the only way to get a result against Bayern is to “perform at 100 percent in all positions,” which he notes is not something his players did against Real Sociedad in its UEFA Champions League Group A match on Wednesday, needing a last-gasp goal from Jens Hegeler to secure a 2-1 win. “It won’t work if we commit the same mistakes we did during the second half on Wednesday,” the former Liverpool defender added.

As holding midfielder Stefan Reinartz told Kicker: “On Saturday, we can see whether we will have to look over our shoulder or whether we can maintain a three-horse race in the Bundesliga.”
