Bayern Munich is preparing for its biggest match (to date) of this season.
A trip to the BayArena awaits the Bavarians, as first-place Bayer Leverkusen looks poised and ready to take on Bayern Munich.
A few questions remain, however, as to who will be available for the big game. Midfielder Joshua Kimmich is making progress after sustaining a shoulder injury and could be ready in time for the Bayern Leverkusen match:

In addition to Kimmich, Dayot Upamecano is making progress in his rehab from a torn muscle fiber as well:
