Bayern Munich vs. Hamburger SV 2017 live stream: Start time, TV channel, and how to watch online

The Bundesliga leaders could extend their advantage at the top of the table on Saturday.

Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich should be able to maintain their run of good form when they play host to struggling Hamburg on Saturday. Carlo Ancelotti’s side head into the match on the back of a 13-game unbeaten streak in all competitions, and will hope to extend their lead at the top of the league table.

That said, Hamburg also head into this match in relatively good form. They’ve won three of their last four matches, and in so doing have managed to wriggle clear of the Bundesliga’s bottom two. They’re now in the relegation playout place, and will be hoping their recent form provides sufficient momentum for them to charge on up the table.

Three big things to know

1. Bayern have been relatively lucky on the injury front so far this season: their only confirmed absentee for this match is center back Jérôme Boateng, who is nearing a return after a pectoral tendon injury, though he’s still expected to be out until midway through next month.

2. Hamburg have no confirmed absentees, though four of their players face late fitness tests. Bobby Wood, Finn Porath, Michael Gregoritsch, and Kyriakos Papadopoulos will all have to pass late fitness tests if they’re to be involved here.

3. Bayern have won five straight matches against Hamburg, including a dominant 8-0 victory at the Allianz Arena in 2015. Not since 2007 have Hamburg won away against the Bavarians, when Rafael van der Vaart and Paolo Guerrero scored in an unlikely 2-1 victory for Huub Stevens’ men. Bayern went on to finish fourth in the table, with Stuttgart romping to title success.
