FCB ready to flex muscles against Fortuna

Thursday's media schedule at the club featured two of Bayern's muscle men, as finely-honed athletes Daniel van Buyten and Xherdan Shaqiri faced the press at the Säbener Strasse media centre. It was symbolic of the approach Munich intend to take this Saturday, as the runaway Bundesliga leaders aim to flex their metaphorical muscles at home to promoted Fortuna Düsseldorf.

“We know the factors that have made us so good this season. But we have to summon up everything again right from the start," urged Van Buyten, who has missed only one league fixture since the winter break. The 35-year-old does not believe complacency could become a problem, despite FCB's mighty 17-point lead in the standings. “If you're working out with such classy players, every training session is a challenge which has to be tackled professionally," said the Belgian colossus, “every player could make the team, so every player has to concentrate."
