Along with Liverpool and Ajax, Bayern were one of three sides to progress from the group stages with a 100 per cent record.
Not only that, but they are unbeaten in each of their last 21 away matches in the competition.
But despite having won 10 of their last 12 matches, Julian Nagelsmann’s men head to Austria with a point to prove.
Indeed, the runaway Bundesliga leaders endured a huge reality check on Saturday, when mid-table Bochum scored four first-half goals to inflict an unlikely defeat.
That will certainly encourage Salzburg as they prepare for their first-ever appearance in the Champions League knockout stages.
The Austrian Bundesliga leaders have momentum after winning each of their last five matches.
Although, they have only prevailed once on their six previous encounters with German opposition; conceding 18 goals during that span.
