Thomas Muller: Looking for more medals

Thomas Muller: Looking for more medals

Pep Guardiola's men host Nurnberg on Saturday looking for a third straight Bundesliga win this campaign and a new club record of 28 games unbeaten in the league is also up for grabs.

Bayern boast an impressive recent record against Nurnberg, winning 13 of their last 22 meetings with their neighbours while losing just once, and Muller is keen to continue that success.

"We've generally done well at home to Nurnberg and we obviously want that to continue," he said on his club's website.

"Nurnberg are good in the air and put you under a lot of pressure and we're going to have to resist that, but technically and tactically we're superior to them.

"We've just got to show that on the field."

Mario Gotze hopes to help in that undertaking by making his Bayern debut this weekend following his summer move from Borussia Dortmund.

"I'm feeling better by the day and of course it will still take a bit of time before I find my rhythm, but I hope I start getting more time on the pitch," he said.

Bayern are also in league action next Tuesday with their trip to Freiburg brought forward due to the upcoming European Supercup against Chelsea, and that will give them the opportunity to move clear at the top of the table.

Dortmund get a chance of their own to take a three-point advantage tomorrow night when they host Werder Bremen, who also boast a 100 per cent record so far.

"We are hungry to win it, but we know everything has got to come together tomorrow," said Bremen coach Robin Dutt.

"Dortmund are a different calibre, but I would not say no to another 1-0 win."

Bayer Leverkusen and Mainz also have perfect records to defend against Borussia Monchengladbach and Wolfsburg respectively, although their opponents both picked up big wins last weekend.

At the bottom of the table, the Eintrachts of Braunschweig and Frankfurt go in search of their first points of the campaign while Augsburg and Stuttgart also look to get their seasons up and running on the same day.

Freiburg, who also have no points yet, travel to high-flying Hoffenheim on Saturday.

Finally, Schalke will look to recover from a disappointing 1-1 draw at home to PAOK in the Champions League yesterday when they travel to Hannover and Hamburg are under pressure for their trip to the capital to face Hertha Berlin.

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
