Team News: Arjen Robben returns to start against Hamburger SV

Arjen Robben returns to the starting lineup for Bayern Munich's clash with Hamburger SV on Saturday afternoon.

Arjen Robben has returned to the starting lineup for Bayern Munich's Bundesliga meeting with Hamburger SV on Saturday afternoon.

The Dutch winger was used as a substitute in the victory over Manchester City in midweek, but is back in the side as other key members of the squad drop to the bench.

Pep Guardiola has decided that there is no room from the start for Robert Lewandowski, Mario Gotze, Mehdi Benatia, Xabi Alonso or Thomas Muller as he rotates his players following a busy week.

The hosts go in search of their first win of the season against the defending champions, but must do so without Rafael van der Vaart, who is not yet fit enough to return from injury.

Pierre-Michel Lasogga continues as a lone striker, with his main support coming from Lewis Holtby, who starts just behind the forward.

Hamburger SV: Diekmeier, Westermann, Djourou, Ostrzolek, Behrami, Arslan, Müller, Holtby, Stieber, Lasogga

Bayern Munich: Neuer, Dante, Rafinha, Boateng, Bernat, Lahm, Alaba, Hojbjerg, Robben, Shaqiri, Pizarro
