Saturday's Südderby between Bayern Munich and Stuttgart will be played with a whopping 39 points separating the two sides in the Bundesliga table. However, the Bavarians know that they'll have their work cutout for them on the day as Stuttgart are only six points out of the relegation zone.
There is a endgame in the league, and Bayern have it in their sights. "There are only six games to go and we're getting ever closer to our most important target with each game," said Pep Guardiola.
With the trip to Lisbon looming midweek, the lineup that Guardiola deploys against Stuttgart will be interesting. Does the Catalan rest a few players for fresh legs as Bayern target the Champions League semifinal? Does the club have substitutes available at key positions or are they wiped out due to injuries?
Bayern are only five points ahead of second place Borussia Dortmund. BVB will be battling in the Revierderby against Schalke at the Veltins Arena at the same time as Stuttgart vs. Bayern.
Once the lineups are released, this thread will be updated.
