Reigning Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich will hit the road for their matchweek 9 fixture against VfB Stuttgart at the Mercedes-Benz Arena on Saturday.
While Bayern currently lead the Bundesliga points table with 19 points, Stuttgart, despite winning just twice, stand in eighth place thanks to their better goal difference. Fans can watch VfB Stuttgart vs Bayern Munich on live streaming in India.
Apart from a rare away defeat at Hoffenheim, the Bavarians have looked invincible this season, across all competitions.
In their last match, Bayern sealed the last-16 spot in the UEFA Champions League with a 3-1 win over Salzburg, with goals from Robert Lewandowski, Leroy Sane, and Kingsley Coman, and look on course to defend their Bundesliga title too.
Polish striker Lewandowski, who has been nominated for the Best Men’s Player award at the Best FIFA Football Awards 2020, will be a threat to the frail Stuttgart defence, that has failed to keep a clean sheet in the last four matches.
Stuttgart, on the other hand, will want Sasa Kalajdzic and Silas Wamangituka to be firing on all cylinders, if they are to put up a fight against the mighty Bavarians.
Although Bayern have been a force offensively, Joshua Kimmich’s absence at the back has been a concern for their defence. It is Manuel Neuer’s excellent glove-work that has time and again saved Bayern’s blushes.
Bayern’s left-back Alphonso Davies will remain out of action till the end of this year after injuring his ankle in October. Stuttgart will also miss their star striker Nicolas Gonzalez after he picked up a knee injury in the last match.
In the other big fixture of matchweek 9, second-placed Borussia Dortmund will welcome Koln to Signal Iduna Park.
Dortmund are hot on the heels of Bayern, with just a solitary point separating the two German heavyweights.
The race for the Torjägerkanone - given to the league’s top goal-scorer - is also a fiercely contested one, as Dortmund’s young gun Erling Haaland has netted 10 goals compared to Lewandowski’s 11.
RB Leipzig will also be in action when they host Arminia Bielefeld on Saturday.
