BAYERN FAVOURITES AGAINST DEPLETED DARMSTADT

FC Bayern München will be confident of maintaining their 100 per cent record against SV Darmstadt 98 at the Allianz Arena on Saturday afternoon (kick-off: 15:30CET/14:30GMT).

Despite the injury-enforced absence of Holger Badstuber, Bayern are considered the strong favourites against the newly-promoted outfit. The Bavarians have only dropped seven points this season, and have never lost to Die Lillien.

The visitors' cause is not helped by a raft of suspensions, with Peter Niemeyer, Jerome Gondorf, Aytac Sulu, Marcel Heller and Konstantin Rausch each picking up yellow cards in last Saturday's 2-1 loss to Leverkusen.
