Bayern looking to make it three from three against Ingolstadt

FC Bayern München have kicked off their Bundesliga title defence in style, and will look to make it three wins from three when they host Bavarian rivals FC Ingolstadt 04 on Saturday (kick-off 15:30 CEST/13:30 GMT).

Have you signed up goal-machine Lewandowski for your Official Fantasy Bundesliga team?

The German champions have made a superb start to life under Carlo Ancelotti, with victories in the DFB Cup, the Supercup, and most recently in the UEFA Champions League, with a 5-0 midweek win against FC Rostov. They began their Bundesliga campaign by hitting SV Werder Bremen for six, and, though they had to be a little more patient against FC Schalke 04 last weekend, Robert Lewandowski and Joshua Kimmich made sure they continued their perfect start.

Ingolstadt are desperate to break a Bundesliga winless streak stretching back to April, but they will be hard pressed to do so at the Allianz Arena – where Bayern only lost a single game last season. Markus Kauczinski’s men may try to take a leaf out of FC Schalke 04’s book and frustrate the champions, but it won’t be easy keeping the likes of Lewandowski quiet.
