Reigning Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich will welcome a struggling FC Koln at the Allianz Arena on Saturday.
Both teams will look to get their league campaign back on track after losing their previous Bundesliga fixtures. Bayern went down to Frankfurt while Koln was beaten by VfB Stuttgart.
League leaders Bayern have RB Leipzig breathing down their neck with just two points separating the teams at the top of the table.
The Bavarians, however, picked up a thumping 4-1 victory against Lazio in the UEFA Champions League, with Robert Lewandowski starring again with the opening goal. The Pole has scored 32 goals this season across competitions and leads the Golden Boot race with 26 strikes in the Bundesliga.
The other positive for the Rekordmeister is their unbeaten run at home, with Bayern’s last loss at the Allianz Arena coming in November 2019. Watch Bayern vs FC Koln live in India.
Bayern Munich coach Hansi Flick will hope youngsters Leroy Sane, Jamal Musiala, and Leon Goretzka can help the team get full points in the absence of Thomas Muller, who is out with COVID-19, and Serge Gnabry.
FC Koln, on the other hand, have lost three of their last five games in the Bundesliga and are languishing at the 14th place, three points above the relegation zone.
The team’s leaky defence will have to stand up to the offensive might of Bayern if they are to salvage any points.
Dortmund, who have slipped out of the top five, will face Arminia Bielefeld at home, while a high-flying RB Leipzig, on a four-match winning streak, host Monchengladbach.
