BERLIN. Bayern Munich’s Arjen Robben has warned his teammates to avoid anything ‘strange’ happening when the Bundesliga leaders host bottom side Eintracht Braunschweig on Saturday.

BERLIN. Bayern Munich’s Arjen Robben has warned his teammates to avoid anything ‘strange’ happening when the Bundesliga leaders host bottom side Eintracht Braunschweig on Saturday.

Strugglers Braunschweig could not have picked a worse time to travel to the home of all-conquering Bayern, who are on record runs in both the Bundesliga and Champions League.

Munich’s emphatic 3-0 win at Borussia Dortmund last Saturday extended their record run to 38 matches unbeaten in the Bundesliga.

And Wednesday’s 3-1 win at CSKA Moscow gave them a record 10th consecutive Champions League victory.

But Bayern want to consolidate their four-point gap at the top of the German league table and Robben has warned his teammates not to assume three more points at the Allianz Arena.

“We respect each and every opponent and I’ve often seen in my career that when top plays bottom, strange things can happen,” said the 29-year-old Robben.
