Bayern Munich take on Viktoria Plzen on matchday three of the UEFA Champions League calendar.
The German giants have enjoyed a fruitful start to their campaign, defeating both Barcelona and Inter Milan 2-0 to fire themselves to the top of Group C.
Beating Xavi’s side so consummately was somewhat unexpected, after they made a faltering start to their league season by their lofty standards.
Julian Nagelsmann’s side sit third, behind surprise leaders Union Berlin and high-flying Freiburg. They haven’t won in four, losing out to Augsburg away from home last time out.
Czech side Viktoria Plzen, on the receiving end of a dreadful group of death with three multiple-European champions, are expectedly bottom of the group on zero points.
Manager Michal Bilek will be hoping to cause shockwaves by picking up a result at the Allianz ArenA, but the likelihood, despite their unbeaten start to their league season, is small.
