Ribery hits hat-trick in Bayern friendly win By

Bayern are expected to be without experienced pair Mats Hummels and Lewandowski, who are both still recovering from injuries.

"We just got back from the training camp and are still very exhausted - on Friday there will be a team with a very different concentration on the pitch", Heynckes told his pre-match press conference.

Arjen Robben and Ribery were constantly able to find space out wide, with full-backs Rafinha and David Alaba supporting them on the overlap.

There is good news regarding Joshua Kimmich, who has been deemed ready to at least be selected in the travelling party, even if there are still some doubts about his fitness following an illness.

"We're playing against a really strong team".

With Lewandowski out, burly Germany striker Sandro Wagner is set to make his first Bundesliga appearance since joining from Hoffenheim last month, reportedly for 12 million euros ($14.3m).

Heynckes expects the Germany worldwide to fit seamlessly into their system.

"It'll be a very hard game but we're very well prepared", Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic said.

But Martinez pounced to open the scoring for Bayern off the rebound after Sven Bender had blocked Arturo Vidal's header from a corner.

Saliou Sane pulled a goal back for the German third division side four minutes before half-time when he scored from the penalty spot.

Bayern arrived at the BayArena having not won a league game at the ground since 2013, ironically Heynckes' last visit to the stadium as a manager, and spent much of the game without the ball. "I'm happy and he'll be the first option in attack".

The hosts were by no means poor in this game, but a string of loose moments in defence would eventually hurt them as they were unable to keep Bayern at bay.

"They're a young, highly talented, hungry, quick team who play with a lot of imagination", he said.

Once both teams settled into the game and began to focus on controlling possession, Bayern started to assert their dominance and take charge of proceedings.
