Lars Bender is a German footballer who plays as a midfielder for Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga. He initially made his name as a holding midfielder with a game akin to that of his twin, Sven Bender, but has since added several new layers to his game. He's now one of the most well-rounded, dynamic midfielders in Europe.

Bender was part of the German under-19 side that won the 2008 UEFA European Under-19 Football Championship. He was first called up to the senior squad in September 2011, making his debut as a substitute for Leverkusen teammate Simon Rolfes in a 2–2 draw with Poland.
