Bayern Munich play host to Nürnberg this weekend as they look further climb back up the table after a disappointing opening to the season. After cruising to a 5-1 victory over Benfica in the Champions League in midweek, the Bavarian side managed to snatch a 2-1 victory against Werder Bremen on Saturday last time out. The visitors, Nürnberg, sit near the relegation zone and are without a Bundesliga win since September. They managed a 1-1 draw against Bayer Leverkusen the previous weekend. Bayern will go into the match as hot favourites to fire themselves further back up the table where they feel they will belong.
