Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich take on Eintracht Brainschweig on Saturday looking to maintain their unbeaten start to the season.

In this battle between top and bottom, the hosts have won five on the bounce in the league including a 3-0 victory away to Borussia Dortmund last weekend.

Braunschweig have not yet been cut adrift but do need to start picking up victories soon, although they cannot realistically expect to get anything from this clash.

Bastian Schweinsteiger and Franck Ribery remain out for the hosts, but Mario Gotze could be in line for a start after scoring from the bench in their last game.

The visitors will still have to make do without Dennis Kruppke, with Dominick Kumbela to continue to lead the line.
