Bayern hope to stretch lead at the top

Bayern battled their way through to the cup final in Berlin with a famous win away to Schalke in midweek, and now turn their attention to two more potential trophies. VfB Stuttgart visit Munich in the Bundesliga on Saturday (Live in English from 3.15 pm CET on Web Radio), where FCB hope to take another step towards the title, and also warm up in style for the Champions League showdown with Manchester United.

“It’s crunch time now. It’ll be a very interesting few weeks,” smiled Philipp Lahm. In the next 14 days, Bayern face Man Utd home and away, and travel to both Schalke and Bayer Leverkusen in the league. FCB’s two title rivals go head-to-head this weekend, “so it’s vital we take all three points on Saturday,” urged director of sport Christian Nerlinger.
