It was recently proposed that the two phenomena, WMAP/Planck haze and Fermi bubbles may have a common origin. In the present paper we analyze the spatial structure of the haze using the Planck 2015 data. It is found that the spatial dimensions and locations of WMAP/Planck haze and Fermi bubbles are compatible within experimental uncertainties for symmetric approximation case, and WMAP/Planck haze appear to be more flattened in galactic latitude direction for the asymmetric approximation case. WMAP/Planck haze possesses north-south asymmetry, it is more intensive in the northern hemisphere. No substructures similar to Fermi bubbles cocoon are identified in Planck data.
