(AFP) - Captain Philipp Lahm has said there is no room for egos in Bayern Munich's squad as they bid to go 13 points clear in the Bundesliga at Stuttgart on Wednesday.

Pep Guardiola's Bayern take on strugglers VfB Stuttgart in a re-arranged league fixture looking to extend their record unbeaten run to 43 matches.

Guardiola clamped down on any complacency by dropping top-scorer Mario Mandzukic for Friday's 2-0 win at Borussia Moenchengladbach for poor performances in training.

Lahm has said Bayern's star-studded squad can expect a few more tough-luck stories to come in the following weeks in their quest for a 24th league title.
