On the other hand, Bayern Munich will pay special attention to Mario Goetze, who spent three trophy laden years at the Allianz Arena.An equally compelling duel takes place at the Bay Arena where Peter Boaz’s talented but inconsistent Bayer Leverkusen host Ralf Rangnick’s free scoring Red Bull Leipzig.Leverkusen were read the riot act after they uncharacteristically fell 1-4 to Hoffenheim last weekend.
