While the points were secured, the manner of the performance was not what we have come to expect from Bayern with the free-flowing football of recent seasons absent.

Pep Guardiola will hope to improve this weekend and he is poised to hand a debut to new signing Mehdi Benatia after the former Roma defender sealed a €30 million move to the Champions during the week.

The Moroccan International penned a five year deal and is looking forward to getting started.

“FC Bayern is the best club in the world. I’m delighted to be here,” Benatia said in the build up to the clash with Schalke.

“I’m really looking forward to playing in the Bundesliga with the fans and full stadiums. I want to make the team even stronger than it already is and help out as much as I can.”

Benatia is a replacement for Javi Martinez following the Spaniards cruciate ligament injury suffered in their DFL Supercup defeat to Borussia Dortmund earlier this month and he will be joined in Bavaria by Xabi Alonso with the former Liverpool midfielder set to complete his move to Bayern over the weekend.

While Alonso won’t feature this weekend his arrival will be most welcome especially with astian Schweinsteiger and Thiago Alcantara both absent in addition to Martinez. That should Gianluca Gaudino and Sebastian Rode will once again feature while Franck Ribery is out and Rafinha is struggling with an ankle injury.

Schalke for their part began the season with a defeat to Hannover the defeat coming days after they dumped out of the DFB-Pokal by third-tier Dynamo Dresden.

The club will be missing a host of players for the visit of Bayern with Sead Kolasinac, Jefferson Farfan, Atsuto Uchida, Leon Goretzka and Fabian Giefer all missing.
