Bayern won 1-0 on home turf in the last league meeting between the two sides in March of this year.
2. Almost unbeatable on home soil

In those 20 matches, the Bavarians have scored an almighty 76 goals and conceded just eight.
3. Meeting of strong defences
The two strongest defences in the Women's Bundesliga come up against each other this weekend.

Just behind them are the She-Wolves with four goals conceded and three clean sheets. It's also a meeting of the two goalkeepers with the best save percentage in the league in FCB keeper Mala Grohs (80%) and VfL custodian Merle Frohms (78%).
