Bayern Munich will host VfB Stuttgart in the German Bundesliga on Saturday, with the reigning champions looking to extend their lead in the standings.

Since losing to Eintracht Frankfurt in the league nearly a month ago, Bayern Munich have won five games in a row in all competitions.

The Bavarians eased past Lazio to make it to the last eight of the Champions League, and are currently four clear at the top of the Bundesliga table.

Stuttgart, on the other hand, can secure European football for next season if they finish strongly in the remaining nine games of the league.
