Franck Ribéry and Javi Martinez are sidelined, but Arjen Robben returns to the squad for the first time in four weeks when Bayern seek to extend their record start to the Bundesliga season to nine straight wins with victory over Bayer Leverkusen at the Allianz Arena on Sunday (Live in English from 5.30 pm CET on Web Radio). The visitors are welcome guests, as they have not won in Munich for 23 years.

“But I care nothing for statistics," declared Jupp Heynckes, fully aware that FCB's startling home record against Leverkusen is no guarantee of three points at the weekend. “We'd be well advised to keep our feet on the ground, approach it professionally, and not rely on statistics," continued the Bayern coach, “instead, we should carry on doing what we've been doing in the league so far."
