Increase font size Text size

FC Bayern and Bayer Leverkusen cross swords for the 11th time in a Bundesliga top match on Saturday at 18.30 CET. No duel has been a Saturday evening match more often. FCB only lost once, on Matchday 31 of the 2014/15 season, when the Reds had already sealed the German championship title. The Munich men have won all four of their home matches. Bayern have won 28 and lost only three of the 37 Bundesliga home matches against Leverkusen, with six games ending in a draw.

Fritz in charge

Marco Fritz will be the man with the whistle for Saturday's top clash with Leverkusen. The 39-year-old banker from Korb has taken charge of 13 games involving the Reds so far, and the German record champions have yet to lose with him on the pitch, winning 12 matches and drawing once. His assistants at the Allianz Arena will be Dominik Schaal and Marcel Pelgrim, with Dr Robert Kampka acting as fourth official.
