Hanover - Lower Saxony has not been a happy hunting ground for FC Bayern München this season as they return to the state where they suffered their only defeat of the Bundesliga season so far to face Hannover 96 on Saturday (kick-off 15:30 CET/14:30 GMT).
The record titleholders' last visit to these parts ended in a 4-1 defeat to VfL Wolfsburg and Hannover 96, without a win yet in 2015, will be hoping the whole region can have that effect on the Bavarian dreadnought as they seek a much-needed three points. bundesliga.com has the lowdown on the HDI Arena clash.
"We're playing against a top team, by far and away the best in the Bundesliga." #Korkut
