The hosts had to do without their midfield talisman Kai Havertz who picked up an injury in the last encounter, while Jerome Boateng returned to the Bayern line-up.

Kai's absence did not seem to affect Leverkusen in the early stages as the hosts took the lead in the ninth minute through Lucas Alario's close range finish.

The Bavarians pushed for an immediate response, but they were let down by Kingsley Coman's finish while Leverkusen shot-stopper Lukas Hradecky denied Robert Lewandowski from close range.

Bayern eventually got their reward in the 27th minute as Coman made up for his earlier miss with a neat finish into the bottom corner after latching onto a pass from Leon Goretzka.

The visitors took control thereafter and eventually completed the turnaround three minutes before the break as Goretzka slotted home from close range after a free-flowing move.

There was enough time for Bayern to bag a third goal in the latter stages of the first, with Serge Gnabry getting in on the act with a neat finish over Hradecky from close range.

Both sides continued to attack upon resumption in the second half, with Moussa Diaby squandering a golden chance four minutes after the break before Thomas Muller went wide at the other end.

However, Bayern got the next goal as Lewandowski secured his 44th goal of the campaign across all competitions with a towering header off Muller's cross six minutes after the hour mark.

Leverkusen went close to setting up a nervy finish for the final 10 minutes, but Manuel Neuer was on hand to produce a good save to keep out Diaby's attempted chip.

Seventeen-year-old Florian Wirtz made the score a bit more respectable for Leverkusen after beating Neuer with an impressive finish in the 89th minute as the encounter ended 4-2.
