Bayern Munich will bid to make Bundesliga history on Saturday when they face Augsburg at the Allianz Arena, with the game live streaming with Bet365.
A win for Pep Guardiola’s side would see them set a record for the longest unbeaten run in top flight German football.
The Bavarian giants currently share the record with the 82-83 Hamburg team but if they avoid defeat on Saturday they current German league, cup and Champions League holders would claim the record in their own right.

Bayern has been impressive this season winning nine and drawing 2 of their 11 games so far to leave them on 29 points, one point ahead of their rivals Borussia Dortmund.
A win over Viktoria Plzen in the Champions League midweek saw the club reach the knockout stages with 2 games to spare and made it 5 straight wins in all competitions with 15 goals scored.
However the focus now switches to Augsburg and Captain Philip Lahm and his team-mates are determined to set the record now it’s in sight.
“You don’t start playing football in order to break records but once the opportunity’s there, you’re obviously going to try and take it,” said Lahm.
“We’ve put in a lot of hard work to get to this point and if you look at the history of the Bundesliga, going so many games without losing is something that just doesn’t really happen.”
Bayern last tasted defeat on the 28th October 2012 when they lost 2-1 to Bayern Leverkusen and with five wins from five in all previous meetings with Augsburg the club will be hopeful of claiming the record.
They may have to do so with Arjen Robben with the Dutch winger still struggling with the groin injury that kept him out midweek while Thiago Alcantara is closing in a return to first team football but is not quite ready.
Definitely out are Claudio Pizarro (thigh) and Shaqiri (thigh).
Augsburg meanwhile will be Dominik Reinhardt and Panagiotis Vlachodimos while Raul Bobadilla is still struggling with a knee injury.
The club currently sit 13th in the table on 13 points, after winning 4, drawing and losing 6 of their opening 11 games. Last time out they ended a run of three straight defeats with a 2-1 win over Mainz.
