Bayern Munich - Wolfsburg Preview: Bavarians look to maintain undefeated Bundesliga start

Jupp Heynckes' men have not dropped a single point yet this season and they will be eager to keep that up as they host Felix Magath's side at the Allianz Arena

Bayern Munich will be looking to retain their 100 per cent Bundesliga record this season with a win over Wolfsburg at the Allianz Arena.

Jupp Heynckes has no new injury worries heading into the midweek fixture but may implement some changes in order to keep certain players fresh. Bastian Schweinsteiger and Arjen Robben, both recently back from injury, look set to start among the substitutes with Javi Martinez winning his first start for his new side.

Claudio Pizarro is given another chance as Mario Mandzukic is rested but the Bavarians' coach will keep the same defence that he has selected for every game so far this season.

Felix Magath looks set to make two changes to the side that drew 1-1 with Greuther Furth at the weekend, with Robin Knoche replace Simon Kjaer and Vieirinha coming into the side in place of Marcel Schafer.
  DID YOU KNOW?
  • Bayern are undefeated in nine Bundesliga games, their last defeat came at the hands of Borussia Dortmund last season, effectively ending their title hopes.

  • Thomas Muller (pictured right) is currently the best performing player in the league. The 23-year-old has already amassed four goals and the same number of assists in four appearances.

  • Die Roten won this fixture 2-0 last season, but neither goal scorer from that game looks set to start. Arjen Robben is recovering from a knock while Mario Gomez remains sidelined.
  • Wolfsburg have not picked up all three points against the Bavarians since a 5-1 thrashing in their Bundesliga-winning year of 2009.

  • Ivica Olic and Mario Mandzukic will both be facing their former sides following transfers this summer.

  • The Wolves have won just one game so far this season and have only scored two league goals.
