Bayern hunt 11th win


RUNAWAY Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich will be battling fatigue plus hosts Eintracht Frankfurt when they hunt a perfect 11 wins from 11 league games today.

“We need to gather our strength as quickly as possible for today,” said Dutch winger Arjen Robben.

Frankfurt have won only one of their last seven games, while Bayern have won their last six against Eintracht without conceding a goal.

They are on a record-breaking run of 33 goals after ten matches – no team has ever scored more in Bundesliga history at this stage.

Second-placed Borussia Dortmund are also busy and face their sixth fixture in the space of two weeks at Werder Bremen’s Weser-Stadion tomorrow.

But the Dortmund goal-machine is in full swing with Thomas Tuchel’s attack having now hit 61 goals in 19 games so far this season.

Bayer Leverkusen and Wolfsburg clash at the Volkswagen Arena tomorrow with the hosts fourth in the league while Bayer are just a point behind in sixth.

Wolfsburg will be without striker Max Kruse for both the visit of Leverkusen and next Tuesday’s away match at PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League.

The 27-year-old has a hamstring injury and midfielder Christian Traesch is doubtful with a thigh in

jury. In-form Hertha Berlin and Borussia Moenchengl­adbach will also clash tomorrow in the capital with Gladbach chasing a sixth straight win under caretaker coach Andre Schubert. – AFP
