Bundesliga Preview: Dortmund - Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola has revealed that summer signing Mario Gotze will be included in the squad for Saturday's Bundesliga clash with Eintracht Frankfurt.

The former Borussia Dortmund playmaker missed the Bavarians' preseason campaign on account of the thigh injury that ruled him out of last season's Champions League final, but he made his first appearance for Die Roten last weekend, scoring twice in a 30-minute cameo in a friendly against Gyori.

Consequently, Guardiola has decided to call upon the 37 million euro man for the trip to the Commerzbank Arena.

"He made another step this week, and is getting better step by step," Guardiola told reporters on Friday. "He'll come to Frankfurt with us.

"He will be in the squad, but I will not decide the lineup until the last moment."

Bayern opened the defense of its Bundesliga title with a 3-1 win over Borussia Monchengladbach last weekend, but Guardiola felt his side had been nowhere near its best.

"We played a good preseason and I hope we can keep up to that level," the ex-Barcelona manager said. "Right now, we couldn't win the championship, but we will improve."
