With two of the Bundesliga's most exiting coaches, the clash between Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen is sure to be a clash worthy of your attention. The last time these coaches met was when Roger Schmidt was at Red Bull Salzburg and thoroughly annihilated Bayern Munich in a friendly. This will be their first competitive fixture against each other.

While Bayern Munich have the upper hand in the table, Bayer Leverkusen sit just 10 points back in 3rd place. A win with Wolfsburg set to face a difficult Hannover side means Bayern Munich could move 10 points clear of seemingly their only competition this year.
