At the Allianz Arena on Saturday evening, Bundesliga defenders Bayern Munich take on SV Darmstadt 98 in an attempt to increase their streak of victories in all competitions to 5 games. The two teams will play each other for the first time following the 2016–17 season, when Bayern won both of their home and away games by a score of 1-0.
Though they haven’t experienced a loss, Thomas Tuchel’s Bayern are presently 3rd in the standings, below Stuttgart and Bayer Leverkusen. Even though Bayern has had a successful start to the campaign, there’s a persistent sense that Germany’s greatest team has a few more gears to shift through before they achieve their peak performance.
With so many ailments still plaguing them, Tuchel only started 7 substitutes in Tuesday’s Champions League victory against Galatasaray. This is the squad that Tuchel might choose for the visit from Darmstadt this coming weekend. The hosts aren’t anticipated to bring back anyone of their present absentees.
The German powerhouses extended their incredible unprecedented undefeated run in the UCL group stage to 37 matches on Tuesday, following up their 3-1 away success against Mainz 05 in the Bundesliga the previous weekend with a further victory against Galatasaray by the identical score in the Champions League.
After spending 6 years out of the Bundesliga, Darmstadt had a while to get used to life again in the league, winning just one of their first 5 matches. However, they ended the international break with a real high after beating Augsburg and Werder Bremen back-to-back.
The Lilies were defeated 3-1 by Leipzig at home last weekend, preventing them from making it 3 victories in a row. With 12 points from 8 matches so far, Torsten Lieberknecht’s team is now sitting 12th in the Bundesliga standings, only 3 places ahead of the bottom three. They have started the same as fellow promoted team Heidenheim, who are only one spot above them due to goal differential.
