Bayern down Leverkusen 3-1 as Bundesliga restarts

Robert Lewandowski stretches with the use of a resistance band around his legs

"The joy of playing is back again", said Mueller.

Barring a huge collapse in form - which doesn't seem likely with how Jupp Heynckes has been running the team since he took over the club earlier this season, which started that impressive run of form - Bayern are going to easily win the Bundesliga, and they'll break a lot of hearts along the way. But after working hard in Qatar [during a mid-season training camp] we played well - although we managed to win 3-1 it was tricky as Leverkusen put us under a lot of pressure.

"I am happy that both have trained partly with the team and both feel well".

There is good news regarding Joshua Kimmich, who has been deemed ready to at least be selected in the travelling party, even if there are still some doubts about his fitness following an illness.

With Lewandowski out, burly Germany striker Sandro Wagner is set to make his first Bundesliga appearance since joining from Hoffenheim last month, reportedly for 12 million euros ($14.3m).

"At Bayer, we have had players who have aroused great interest and are on the wish list of other clubs for years".

Heynckes expects the Germany global to fit seamlessly into their system. He can also play well with his back to goal.

Analyst Opinion Summary: Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation (COG), Premier, Inc. (PINC)
Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation ( COG ) pays out an annual dividend of 0.24 per share. 292,039 are owned by Aviva Public Ltd Com. Simon increased its stake in Xpo Logistics Inc (XPO) by 38.89% based on its latest 2017Q3 regulatory filing with the SEC.

"He has settled in well so far".

"He's very ambitious, very disciplined, " Heynckes said. "I'm happy and he'll be the first option in attack".

Fourth-placed Leverkusen reopen proceedings today with a mouth-watering clash at home to run-away league leaders Bayern, who have an 11-point lead over nearest rival Schalke.

"Mark Uth is now the best German goal scorer in the Bundesliga and will really improve our attacking options from the summer", said Schalke sporting director Christian Heidel.

The hosts were by no means poor in this game, but a string of loose moments in defence would eventually hurt them as they were unable to keep Bayern at bay.

"They're a young, highly talented, hungry, quick team with plenty of imagination, " Heynckes told the club's official website. "It's going to be hard".
