Third time lucky, they say, and after drawing their first two league fixtures, Bayern are hungry for a first victory on Matchday 3. “We’ve not won yet, so the big challenge is to record our first win this weekend,” stand-in skipper Philipp Lahm declared ahead of Saturday’s trip to promoted FSV Mainz (Live in English from 3.15 pm CET on FCB.tv Web Radio).
“It’s important we take the three points, because we don’t want the gap getting too big,” agreed Bastian Schweinsteiger prior to the showdown at the Bruchweg stadium. If Bayern again fail to win, they could find themselves up to seven points off the lead. “We’d be playing catch up again,” warned Schweinsteiger. Bayern last suffered a winless streak in the first three matches of a season back in 1966.
