Robert Lewandowski and Mats Hummels not in Bayern Munich squad for Leverkusen trip

Bundesliga leaders FC Bayern München beat Bayer 04 Leverkusen 3-1 at the BayArena on Friday night, although they did not have things all their own way. Bayern are comfortable atop the table, 11 points clear of second-place Schalke and 13 points ahead of fourth-place Bayer Leverkusen.

Pacey Kingston-born winger Bailey is friends with Jamaica sprint legend Bolt, who last weekend revealed that he wants to launch his football career with a trial at Borussia Dortmund in March.

Bayern Munich will be without leading scorer Robert Lewandowski and centre-back Mats Hummels in Friday's Rückrunde opener at Bayer Leverkusen, head coach Jupp Heynckes confirmed at his pre-match press conference on Thursday.

Javi Martinez and Franck Ribery scored either side of the break for Bayern before Kevin Volland pulled one back for the hosts to set up a frantic finale. Bayern have allowed 11 goals, the fewest goals in the Bundesliga, seven goals fewer than the next best club Frankfurt. With Arjen Robben expected to return from injury, Bayern's attack could be even more dominant. "No one is thinking about the lead in the standings", Wagner said.

Lucas Alario was inches away soon after when the Argentina striker saw his shot go narrowly wide of the top corner from outside the area, but the Bavarians had the last laugh when Rodríguez sent a stunning curling effort into the top corner from a free-kick, after he'd been fouled by Lars Bender outside the area. Jamaican winger Leon Bailey has been one of the most exciting young players in Germany.

And Bayern punished his profligacy in the 32nd minute - Martinez blasting in from close range after Vidal's header ricocheted into his path.

However, Rodriguez's free kick dashed home hopes as Bayern won at Leverkusen for the first time since their 2013 treble-winning season.
