It’s been a difficult week off the pitch for Bayern following the news that president Uli Hoeness was jailed for three-and-a-half years for tax evasion.
The former Germany international handed himself in to the authorities earlier this month after admitting to evading €18.5million in taxes by using secret Swiss bank accounts to hide his income.
Despite the difficult situation that the club has found itself in this week, the players and staff of Bayern have continued to support their president as epitomised by winger Franck Ribery who said: “You can’t envisage Bayern without Hoeness. We need him.”
The reigning champions will aim to make headlines for the right reasons this weekend when they bid to extend their unbeaten start to the season to 25 games. Pep Guardiola’s men equalled the 24 game run of the 2009/2010 Bayer Leverkusen team when they beat Wolfsburg 6-1 last weekend and they will hope to extend it against the same opposition on Saturday.
Leverkusen have been in miserable form in recent weeks winning just two games in their last nine games and are currently on a run of three defeats and a draw in their last four games.
The club’s latest defeat came midweek when they lost 2-1 away to PSG in the Champions league, yet despite crashing out 6-1 on aggregate to the French league leaders, Leverkusen manager Sami Hyypia believes his players can take confidence from their performance in Paris.
“We always want to win so we can’t be happy but we showed character and gained confidence – ready for Saturday.” The former Liverpool defender said.
The two club’s drew when they met in October however while Leverkusen’s form has dipped since them Munich have won all 16 of their games and are currently 49 league games unbeaten.
The club are on course to emulate the achievements of last season when they claimed a treble after beating Arsenal 3-1 on aggregate midweek to seal their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions league.
