In mid-October, the Bayer eleven had “a bad level” on the day and the Munich “an incredible”.
“We’ve dropped out of the things. Of course, we can not happen again.” We have to play adults. “
Although the Leverkusen are nominally well placed as a table greater, the distance to the leader from the south is already saying and write 14 points.
