Bayern Munich face their opponents, equal on points, with both keen to make progress
With Bayern having secured all three points on their two previous outings, Julian Nagelsmann’s men will doubtless be looking to retain their run after this fixture.
Also, Bayern are quickly becoming the Bundesliga’s draw specialists, having recorded three in their last five fixtures. With 15 points, they currently sit third in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 4 wins, 1 losses and 3 draws having won four meetings, drawn three games, and lost one game.
Bayern have won two matches, drawn one game, and lost one game of their four League matches on the road this season.
A win in this fixture would take Bayern Munich’s points to 18 in the League.
A solid defensive team
Bayern have a solid defence, with only six goals conceded in their previous games. Bayern have delivered goals in spades this season, largely down to the key attacking force of Jamal Musiala (5), Sadio Mane (4), and Leroy Sane (3).
Bayern’s squad has depth, but even so, Julian Nagelsmann is likely to be missing six of they key players when they start Saturday’s game.
