Bayern Munich will be looking to close the gap on league leaders Borussia Dortmund when they travel to Nuremberg on Saturday, as bookmakers predictably price up Jupp Heynckes’s side as favourites as they make a blistering return to form. Its a a game which you can watch live and streaming online with Bet365 (see below).
By then, Dortmund could have extended their lead at the top of the Bundesliga to eight points, as they take on Stuttgart on Friday night.
But Bayern will have been boosted by their 2-0 away to Marseille in the Champions’ League in midweek, and will be confident they can see off struggling Nurenberg with relative ease.
That victory in Europe means that Bayern will have the relatively easy task of progressing to the quarter finals when the French side arrive in Germany for the second leg.
Home side Nuremberg are in eleventh place, but do find themselves just four points above the bottom three. They could yet face a play-off to hold onto their place in the top division.
Indeed, things have been going rather well of late for Bayern, as they have now managed to score 24 goals in their last six games in all competitions.
During that time they have only conceded two goals and remain unbeaten, but know they will have to continue that form if they are to have any chance of winning the title this season.

Nuremberg, on the other hand, have now lost their last three matches and will be low on confidence going into the game.
Their last win came against Borussia Mönchengladbach back at the start of March, a result which at the time was their third on the bounce.
The last meeting between these two sides was in late October, and it turned out to be a comfortable afternoon for the Bavarians, as they beat Nuremberg 4-0 at the Allianz Arena.
Bayern go into the game knowing they will have to make do without talismanic midfielder, Bastian Schweinsteiger.
The Germany international now looks unlikely to play again this season, having hardly played since February with on and off ankle problems.
