Bayern Munich are up against Xabi Alonso's Bayer Leverkusen in a bid to reclaim the top spot from rivals Dortmund in the Bundesliga.
Bayer Leverkusen are currently ninth in the table with 34 points from 24 games with 10 wins and 10 losses. They come into this game on the back of a 2-0 win in the Europa League to advance to the next round.
