Sports Mole previews Saturday's Bundesliga clash between Bayern Munich and Hannover.

Bayern Munich host Hannover on Saturday afternoon in an early clash between two of the Bundesliga's top four sides.

Hannover's position is potentially false as their nine points have come from three home wins from four, with their only away game ending with a 3-0 defeat at Borussia Monchengladbach.

The visitors' coach Mirko Slomka appears confident that Mame Biram Diouf will be fit to lead the line against the champions.

Bayern coach Pep Guardiola will have to make do without Thiago Alcantara, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Javi Martinez in the midfield, which will require some reshuffling.
