Robben out, but FCB target victory in Bremen

“Keep going, always keep going," Oliver Kahn famously said, and that's definitely the attitude at Bayern right now. “The quote is very appropriate again," said Karl-Heinz Rummenigge in the wake of the midweek victory over Wolfsburg, Munich's eighth win on the trot. Brief celebrations are permitted, but then the focus turns to the next challenge, in this case the trip to Bremen on Saturday (Live in English from 3.30 pm CET on Web radio).

In the pre-match press conference, Jupp Heynckes revealed what he had told his players prior to the 93rd meeting between the teams generally reckoned the top dogs in the north and south of the country. “We won't be lulled into a false sense of security. We want to continue along our path without distractions and not be influenced by noises off." Matthias Sammer warned against complacency. “If we're careless, we could be in for a shock, and that mustn’t happen in Bremen. Once again, we have a huge amount of work ahead of us."
