BERLIN. Borussia Dortmund have an awkward trip to on-form Wolfsburg Saturday as they seek to recover from their 1-0 home defeat to Arsenal in the Champions League.

Leaders Bayern Munich, the only one of the German quartet in the Champions League to win midweek, take on visiting Augsburg in a Bavarian derby - and with a Bundesliga record in their sights.

Bayern, a point ahead of Dortmund, would appear to have the easier task against an Augsburg side lying 13th and with only one win and four defeats on their travels this season.

Bayern could chalk up a 37th game without defeat, beating SV Hamburg’s 30-year-old record.

Coach Pep Guardiola can call again on Dutch winger Arjen Robben and will be expecting a 10th win in 12 league games ahead of their trip to Dortmund the following Saturday.

Dortmund’s opponents Wolfsburg have meanwhile won four of their five home games and are on a run of three successive wins which have taken them to fifth in the table.

Dortmund’s defeat to the Gunners - ending a run of seven straight wins at home in the Champions League - left Dortmund coach Juergen Klopp smarting, although he had nothing to criticise about his side’s performance.

“Football is a game of results. Arsenal had their first chance in the 62nd minute and they scored. It feels unjust but we have to accept it,” he said.
