Saturday's narrow 2-1 home victory over FC Augsburg, Bayern's ninth straight win in all competitions, means the gap to Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund remains constant at just three points, and sees the men in red brimming with confidence ahead of Wednesday's crunch trip to face the champions. All in all, it is a happy Easter in Munich.

“It was a tough match and a vital win. All credit to the team," said Christian Nerlinger after the enthralling encounter in front of the customary capacity crowd at the Allianz Arena. “We've won nine times in a row at the highest imaginable level, so we're travelling to Dortmund in very confident spirits," the director of sport continued.
