One step closer to the title.

Bayern Munich continued their path to their eighth consecutive Bundesliga title with a convincing 5-0 win over Fortuna Dusseldorf.

Lewandowski continues to be the key player for the Bavarians with 29 goals in 27 league matches. Last week he was influential with two goals.

Will he secure yet another win for Bayern?

Can Leverkusen get a crucial win?

Leverkusen are fighting for a Champions League berth for the 2020-2021 cycle. They're currently fifth on the table and tied at 56 points with Monchengladbach, but with a worse goal difference.

Three of the four games since the re-start of the Bundesliga have been victories for them,  with an in-form Kai Havertz scoring five goals in those fixtures.

Can they beat Bayern and get closer to their objective?
