Gotze: Bayern are catchable
However Gotze believes recent impressive performances - such as the 1-1 Champions League draw with Manchester City - have put them in good stead to chase down Bayern.
"We have made mistakes," Gotze told German newspaper Bild.
"But we are on the right track and we have also played very well at Manchester City.
"We are in the Champions League and in the cup our performances continue to be strong. We will learn from our mistakes. Nobody needs to worry.
"Bayern are certainly not unassailable, but they have a certain edge.
"But why should we fear them? We are trying again to get our points. The rest remains to be seen."
