Favourites FCB aware of Kaiserslautern threat

When Arjen Robben and Thomas Müller faced the press, they were determined and resolute. That was on Monday. On the day prior to the home DFB Cup meeting with second division Kaiserslautern, Jupp Heynckes was in exactly the same mood, expressing no doubt whatsoever that FCB would delight the majority of a 71,000 full house at the Allianz Arena by finishing as winners on Wednesday evening (Live in English from 8.30 pm CET on Web Radio): “We’re stable and this team is very performance-oriented. I have no concerns.”

Sunday’s unlucky first defeat of the league season against Leverkusen will be a rapidly fading memory by Wednesday evening. “We need to deal with the situation coolly and not start imagining the worst,” urged Heynckes. The team is “still entirely in one piece,” and will continue to demonstrate as much over the coming weeks, the coach continued. FCB are definitely favourites against FCK, especially with the game being played in Munich.
