Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola says he is looking forward to his first experience of Oktoberfest - the traditional celebration season of Bavarian food, drink and culture.

FC Bayern make the trip to Oktoberfest every season, and this year it follows their encounter with Wolfsburg on Saturday.

After being pictured last week wearing Lederhosen - traditional Oktoberfest attire - Guardiola told reporters he is excited about his first taste of the world-famous German festival:

"Beer and party, Lederhosen and women in their frocks - it's going to be great."

Oktoberfest is a celebration of Bavarian culture, that typically involves drinking large quantities of beer and eating traditional Bavarian food:

"I'm looking forward to experiencing these three weeks. You can trust me," said Guardiola.

Bayern need a win to keep up pressure on fellow league-leaders Borussia Dortmund this weekend, with Bayer Leverkusen just a single point behind.

The Munich side have won all of their league games so far this season, and beat Chelsea on penalties in the UEFA Super Cup.

The Champions League holders signed Mario Götze from rivals Borussia Dortmund in the summer, and are reportedly planning to announce the signing of another Dortmund star Robert Lewandowski in January.

Bayern travel to Manchester City in their next Champions League game on October 2nd.
