Bayern down Leverkusen 3-1 as Bundesliga resumes

Champions Bayern Munich will kick off 2018 with an nearly complete squad after top scorer Robert Lewandowski, Mats Hummels and Joshua Kimmich were declared fit before their Bundesliga campaign resumes against Bayer Leverkusen today.

Ribery and Arjen Robben are out of contract at the end of the season, but both hope to be offered an extension in the coming months. "It's always nice to score", he added after his first league goal of the season.

Ribery's second-half strike was his first of the campaign, and the Frenchman was delighted to have had an impact for the leaders on a tough away trip.

Bayern seemed to be in control but Kevin Volland pulled one back for Leverkusen with a deflected shot and suddenly the home side was pressing for more with just under 20 minutes remaining.

The win for Bayern however highlighted a serious issue for Leverkusen as they seemed to have no plan-b.

A 14-match unbeaten run has allowed Leverkusen to climb the league table. The champions re-signed their former youth striker from Hoffenheim this summer.
