Gunning for their fifth straight Bundesliga title, FC Bayern Munich are two points clear of FC Cologne in the German top-flight league, and are looking to create more separation in their upcoming match against Hamburger SV.

Carlo Ancelotti has been superb in his start as Bayern's team manager, rattling of six wins and amassing twelve points in the Bundesliga for the Bavarian squad. Ancelotti is looking to continue that streak while still establishing rapport with his team.

"I want to build a good relationship with all the people that work with the club. I focus on that. To build a good relationship. To build a good team spirit. Spirit is, I think, the most important word in football," Ancelotti said.

Bayern Munich players are also warming up to their new manager, who replaced Pep Guardiola on the sidelines. Defender Joshua Kimmich himself says that Ancelotti hasn't made much changes to the system that Guardiola set, but is allowing his wards to play in a freer pace.

"Outsiders try to talk up the differences between the coaches but all successful managers know how to build on the good work of their predecessors. There is no need to change everything," the 21-year old German said.

Other teams are looking to disrupt the reign that Bayern has established, as Borussia Dortmund, FC Cologne, Hertha BSC, Eintracht Frankfurt, and even the youthful RB Leipzig are right behind the Bavarian giants in the standings. Each team has made changes at the start of the season, and have their sights set in overcoming Bayern this year.
