FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) Bayern Munich director Matthias Sammer found something to complain about despite the team's record-breaking season and its latest success.

Sammer doesn't like the timing of Bayern's next match.

That's about the only thing anyone from Bayern could be unhappy with. The defending champions have won their opening 10 Bundesliga matches, have scored the most goals (33) and conceded the fewest (4). Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Mueller have combined for 23 goals.

Bayern also dominated in a 3-1 second-round German Cup win over holder Wolfsburg, cruising past the team that twice beat Bayern last season.

After Tuesday's victory, Sammer complained that Bayern only had two days to recover before traveling to Frankfurt to face Eintracht on Friday.

''It is unfortunate that we have to play on Friday again,'' Sammer said.

In unusual move, Bayern will only fly to Frankfurt on the day of the match and not a day earlier as usual.

Bayern captain Philipp Lahm was more relaxed.

''Saturday would have been better for us, but we can deal with it,'' Lahm said.

On the other hand, Bayern will also have more time to rest before the Champions League match against Arsenal on Wednesday. Arsenal is the only team to beat Bayern, 2-0, in 15 matches across all competitions this season.

Eintracht is struggling and is coming off a 1-0 loss at third-division Aue in the German Cup.

Borussia Dortmund, already seven points behind Bayern in second place, travels to Werder Bremen.

STEVENS RETURNS

Huub Stevens is back in the Bundesliga for his eighth stint as coach.

The 61-year-old Dutchman took over Hoffenheim this week after Markus Gisdol was fired and will make his comeback in Cologne.

Hoffenheim is hoping that Stevens' experience in saving clubs from relegation will work in its favor. Stevens helped Stuttgart avoid demotion last season but his contract was not extended.

Next-to-last Hoffenheim already has named a successor for Stevens, who will stay until the end of the season. Julian Nagelsmann will take over next season, before his 29th birthday.

PRE-DAWN TRAINING

Stuttgart is struggling under Steven's successor, Alexander Zorninger, but it won 2-0 at fourth-tier club Carl Zeiss Jena in the German Cup. The reward for the players: Practice at 4 a.m.

After a five-hour bus ride home, the coach sent his players to run a few laps around the practice field.

Zorninger said the move was necessary because Darmstadt, the team's next Bundesliga rival, has had one more day to recover.

Whether Zorninger's method will work remains to be seen. Stuttgart is only 16th, while promoted Darmstadt is 11th and has not lost on the road, winning two and drawing two.

SCHUBERT TO STAY?

Officially, Borussia Moenchengladbach is still looking for a long-term coach. The solution may be under their nose.

Ever since he took over after the resignation of Lucien Favre, interim coach Andre Schubert has known nothing but success in domestic competitions.

Five Bundesliga matches, five wins. Then came the 2-0 win over Schalke in the German Cup, `Gladbach's second win over its rival in four days.

Should `Gladbach win again at Hertha Berlin, there will be more calls to give Schubert a long-term deal.
