Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich to host Borussia Dortmund at the Allianz Arena on Sunday. The Bavarians looking forward to continue a record-breaking run of form this season.
Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola looks confident this new season because of his side’s blistering form, having broken the record set by themselves back in the 2012-13 term. The German leaders have recorded an unbroken 21-points from seven games.
Guardiola will be happy with the recruitment of Arturo Vidal and Douglas Costa over the summer, but what makes him more happy is the impressive form of Polish striker Robert Lewandowski, who scored 14 goals in all competitions this season, including five-goal haul in just nine minutes against Wolfsburg.
“I am very happy with his last two games,” Guardiola said. “But as a coach you always want more, more, more. It doesn’t mean that he has to score more goals. I hope that he doesn’t think about scoring all of the time.”
Thanks to Lewandowski’s stellar performance, the Bayern have also conceded just three goals in seven games in the league.
Meanwhile, BVB have enjoyed an excellent start under their new manager Thomas Tuchel, and will be hoping to come back from two consecutive draws in the Bundesliga top flight.
