The teams are level on points at the top of the league going into Sunday’s match. Although it’s only been seven games, Leverkusen’s start is giving grounds for optimism under coach Gerardo Seoane. But it was a similar story last year. Leverkusen was unbeaten and at the top of the Bundesliga after 12 matches before Bayern’s visit on Dec. 20.

Defender Tah sees no parallel to the previous year

The loving the largest title chance at home against a second division is a brutal setback for Bayer Leverkusen, as Jonathan Tah added. "The disappointment is of course very big, very difficult to process," said the defense chief who wanted to search for failure for failure.

So the national player did not apply the lack of both injured midstürmer, Patrik Schick and Lucas Alario. Even if the lack of efficiency at the 1: 2 against the KSC was a co-decision factor. Nevertheless, Tah emphasized: "The two of course was missing, but that did not have to do that much. It was also in the last games so that we did not manage to play the situations properly to finish that we are not Clear enough in the actions were, not focused enough. "

Bayern sends message to rivals with 5-1 win at Leverkusen

  Bayern sends message to rivals with 5-1 win at Leverkusen LEVERKUSEN, Germany (AP) — Bayern Munich wanted to send a message to fellow title contenders like Bayer Leverkusen. Message sent. Bouncing back from a rare loss to Eintracht Frankfurt in its last game, Bayern dismantled Leverkusen 5-1 on Sunday with two goals apiece from Robert Lewandowski and Serge Gnabry. Four goals in seven minutes left Leverkusen in tatters before halftime and told rivals that denying Bayern a 10th consecutive title certainly won't be easy, and may be impossible. Coach Julian Nagelsmann praised his team's progress since the loss to Frankfurt, when Bayern couldn't convert numerous scoring chances.

As in Cologne, Bayer had left numerous success-promising situations with a mixture of negligence and lack of concentration. "It was not that it was not possible," Tah explained for missed progress despite the early counterpart and the lack of own efficiency.

Tah takes Hradecky in protection: "Error may make everyone"

also the serious Patzer of Lukas Hradecky before the 1: 2, when the goalkeeper played the ball to the Karlsruhe Goal Scorer Choi the ball in the feet, did not want to go to the center. Do not really reproach any allegations. "No, Lukas has shown enough to play that he is a tremendous player for us as a captain, as a guide," explained the 25-year-old, "Error may do anyone."

What Bayer unfortunately took literally because of this evening. So Tah gave and his defensive colleague Edmond Tapsoba also no good figure at the early 0: 1. And on the front Moussa Diaby, Amine Adli, and also the substitute Spanish U-17 international Iker Bravo, who became a joker with 16 years and 287 days became the most recent professional of Leverkusen club history, best chances.

 Staved into Derby: What Cologne and Leverkusen must make better 0: 5 Against 1: 5: 1. FC Cologne and Bayer Leverkusen meet on Sunday with painful prehistons. Why the FC finds his way again and Bayer does not have to question any fundamental question.

Despite all the problems, however, Tah does not seem parallel to the preseason, in which Bayer experienced a brutal crash after a 1-2 defeat against Bayern Munich on the 13th matchday. Whether he is sure that there will be no repetition of history, Tah was asked. "In any case," the defender answered, "because we are not last year."

"The game against Wolfsburg is enormous." (Tah)

Even if the success of success lasts last, he does not see any break in the game of the Werkself. "It was clear that it can not go so steep uphill all the time," said the Hüne, but said, "We still have the same actions. If we take advantage of it, it looks just as at the beginning of the season. "

But that's the crucial question: how strong is Bayer really? However, the Werkself eleven on the paper on the paper, for example, against Gladbach and Celtic Glasgow (4: 0 each), and was punished in the starting phase of the season only from BVB for these negligence at 3: 4 defeat.

"At the moment, it's about fighting for me in Leverkusen again.

Bayer gets the receipt for negligence in defensive and offensive

but now Bayer gets the receipt for the negligence in defensive as offensive in any game with a brutal hardness. A situation that is dangerous as Tah knows. An impression that must not be determined. "We have to shake it as soon as possible. The next game is not far away. We have to pull our conclusions from the game. Also from the last games in which we were not efficient, and bring a little better in the place against Wolfsburg. "

does not succeed on Saturday, threatens what Tah may not recognize now. "The game against Wolfsburg is enormous. Before all things for our self-confidence, that we do not start talking about that we are in a hole - because so I do not see it."

Now, in the first difficult phase of the season, after the departure of the Bender brothers, the new executives like Tah have to prove. Another setback against crisis wolves would possibly also significantly change the viewing angle of the defense chief.
