The Champions League winners are looking for a sixth consecutive victory when they face Wolfsburg on Saturday.Former Bayern Munich midfielder Luiz Gustavo looks set to face the club he left over the summer after returning from suspension, and Wolfsburg coach Dieter Hecking remains optimistic over his side's chances Saturday.
“Playing Bayern is like food that’s tough to digest, but it can taste good too," he said. “It’s entirely up to Bayern whether or not they let you have a chance. But if they do, we have to take advantage of that out on the field.”
Mario Mandzukic says Bayern will be well prepared for Wolfsburg and is predicting a sixth consecutive victory for the club.
Die Roten sit joint top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund after six games and recorded a 4-0 win at Schalke in their last league outing prior to Wednesday's 4-1 DFB-Pokal win over Hannover - with the striker expecting more of the same.
“I know what makes them tick,” he told reporters. “Wolfsburg will definitely give everything to win here. But we’re well prepared and we know we’re in good form. It has to end with a Bayern win.”
Midfielder Franck Ribery shared the sentiments of the Croatia striker and urged his teammates to maintain the standard of their their recent displays.
“We have to concentrate and keep playing like we have done recently, because if we do, we have a big chance of winning.”
