Team News

  • Simon Jentzsch is still injured so Mohamed Amsif will play in goal.
  • Gibril Sankoh and Sebastian Langkamp compete for a spot at centre-back, with the former probably ahead in the manager's rankings.
  • Kevin Vogt returns to the starting line-up to replace the injured Paul Verhaegh at right-back.
  • Ja-Cheol Koo will most likely switch to the centre again, with Milan Petrzela filling in on the right wing.
  • Jerome Boateng will probably replace the injured Holger Badstuber at centre-back.
  • Javi Martinez will return to the starting eleven after being rested in the Champions League during the week.
  • Mario Mandzukic, who has been rested as well, will most likely start ahead of Mario Gomez and Claudio Pizarro up front.

Prediction

  • Augsburg are second-last in the table with only one win so far, but two draws from their last three games is a slight improvement, though it is unlikely to be enough to get a result against Bayern.
  • Bayern managed a draw against Dortmund last weekend and won their Champions League group during the week. The team should be full of confidence to continue their successful run.
  • Expect Bayern to dominate the game from the start and Augsburg to defend deep.
