Lahm: It's going to be difficult to beat Bayern Munich

The full-back has voiced his opinion that defeating the Allianz Arena side will be a momentous task to any team following their perfect start to the season
Philipp Lahm believes it's going to be very difficult for other teams to end Bayern Munich's winning streak if they can keep up their current form.

The Bavarians have won their opening eight Bundesliga games, and Lahm feels the hard work of players such as Mario Mandzukic and Franck Ribery in attack have played a key role in their successful season so far.

"Mandzukic's on fire and is the type of player who works hard for the team. I'd like to stress though that the team as a whole switched between attack and defence very well in Düsseldorf," Lahm told the official Bundesliga website.

"Likewise, I find the way Ribery is working defensively outstanding. It's going to be difficult to beat us if we maintain this attitude week in, week out.

"It's obviously great to be the first team to start the season with eight wins. And we certainly won't object if that winning streak continues.

"We're in good shape, as we've proved in recent weeks. We just want to carry on winning, starting with the upcoming Champions League encounter."

Bayern are currently preparing for the Group F clash away against Lille on Tuesday.
