On the eve of the run-in to the midpoint of the season, Bayern’s goal is to claw back the gap between themselves and the Bundesliga leaders point-for-point, in order to be in a position to challenge for the title in the second half of the campaign. Coach Louis van Gaal and his men intend to keep up the chase on Saturday with a winning performance away to Bayer Leverkusen (Live in English from 6.15 pm on FCB.tv Web Radio).
“We want to stay in touch at the top, so we need a result,” said keeper Jörg Butt ahead of the latest return to his former stamping ground. FCB currently lie five points off second-placed Leverkusen, so victory at the BayArena would take Munich to within two points of the Werkself.
