Leverkusen cruise Bayern in match that could decide the Bundesliga

In his Friday press conference before the biggest Bayer Leverkusen match in ages, manager Xabi Alonso was told about a quote from Bayern Munich manager Thomas Tuchel earlier in the day. "We're playing against a lot of 'neutral' fans who want Leverkusen to win the title," Tuchel said. "But we're playing for our expectations and for the title."

When asked about being the favorite of the neutral, Alonso simply said, "We have enough motivation from ourselves and our own home fans. That's enough for us. Thanks for the support, but we don't need it.
