Ribery wants to finish career at Bayern

Ribery wants to finish career at Bayern

"We are relaxed. The only club that can say no - and would do so - if a player attracted interest is Bayern Munich", Voller said in an interview with Die Welt.

Things almost got worse for Leverkusen a few minutes later, but Vidal nodded just wide.

Volland pulled one back via a deflection of Niklas Sule in the 70th minute to usher in a period of intense Leverkusen pressure, but Bayern - which introduced new signing Sandro Wagner late on - wrapped things up through James' exquisite stoppage-time free-kick to increase its lead at the top ahead of Schalke's trip to RB Leipzig on Saturday.

The away victory - Bayern's first at Leverkusen since 2013 - leaves them 14 points clear and on course for a sixth straight Bundesliga title as the German league resumed after the winter break.

Bayern was the first to craft an opportunity as Arjen Robben led a break and picked out Ribery at the back post, but Bellarabi recovered to block the Frenchman's eventual effort.

"You know when you play in Leverkusen it is always a hard game".

Speaking about a successful return to Bundesliga action at the BayArena, the winger added: "Normally I provide a lot of assists and do a lot of dribbling - but it's always great when you score a goal".

Goalkeeper Sven Ulreich, who will again deputise for the injured Manuel Neuer, added: "They're unsafe opponents who break forward quickly".

Kerber beats Barty to claim Sydney title
Medvedev will next play Australian 18-year-old Alex de Minaur, who defeated Benoit Paire of France 4-6, 6-1, 6-1. Angelique Kerber won her first title since the 2016 U.S.

Warriors again without Curry versus Bucks
Kevin Durant led the charge with 26 points, and Draymond Green added 21 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists for Golden State. The Warriors announced that Curry will be held out of Friday night's road game against the Milwaukee Bucks .

As well as Neuer, Heynckes remains without the services of Thiago, Robert Lewandowski and Mats Hummels, although Lewandowski and Hummels have returned to training.

However, the host's goalkeeper was hapless in the 32nd minute when Vidal's header on target was blocked allowing Javi Martinez to slot home the opener following a rebound from close range.

Bayer Leverkusen star winger Leon Bailey could move on soon as the club's sporting director Rudi Voller has acknowledged there may come a time to sell the young Jamaican star.

He dribbled his way through the defence then unleashed a thunderbolt of a shot which gave Leverkusen's Germany goalkeeper Bernd Leno no chance.

With three minutes gone, Ribery could have opened the scoring for the visitors after finding space inside the box, but his strike sailed over the crossbar.

However, the goal sparked Leverkusen into life.

However Rodriguez, on loan from Real Madrid, showed his class by coolly slotting home a free kick on the edge of the area after being fouled just outside the box.
