FCB vow to get back on track in Europe

The memory of Saturday's scintillating victory in Düsseldorf is still relatively fresh, but the Bayern squad is already fully focused on the next match – and to that end, the players touched down in northern France at midday on Monday. The mood on board the plane during the 70-minute flight from Munich was calm but focused. As the stars know, the form shown in an eight-match winning run in the Bundesliga must now be reproduced in the Champions League away to LOSC Lille on Tuesday (Live in English from 8.45 pm CET on Free Web Radio). “There’s a certain amount of pressure due to the defeat against Borisov. It's up to the team now," commented Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

President Uli Hoeneß will join the FCB delegation on the day of the match, in which the Bavarians face the side who finished third in Ligue 1 last season. Coach Rudi Garcia’s team have made a patchy start this term and occupy a mid-table position. And the Mastiffs are in trouble in the Champions League, as they lie bottom of Group F with no points from two games.
