FC Bayern return to Champions League action this week in their third group stage match against Italian side, AS Roma. The 'eternal city' may be one of the most desirable tourist attractions in the world but the team is there "to work and not as a group of tourists," as Thomas Müller put it. Indeed, Roma should serve as Bayern's biggest challenge to date this season. "Roma are our toughest rivals at the moment. They're playing the best football in Italy at the present time," said Arjen Robben in the press conference leading up to the game.
The good news for Bayern is that both David Alaba and Franck Ribery should be fit for the game, and they'll need all the strength they can get, and captain Philipp Lahm outlined as much on Monday: "If we play the way we're capable of playing, we have a good chance of coming away from Rome with three points and taking a big step in the right direction." For Pep Guardiola it will be a meeting with a club he spent six months with as a player, a club that also has a good home record against Bundesliga teams (W7, D1, L3). But Bayern have a prove track record on the road in Europe recently, having lost just one of their last 11 away games in the competition.
