THE TEAM NEWS

AUGSBURG

  • After heavy defeats to Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia M'gladbach, struggling Augsburg face another daunting prospect with the visit of Bayern.
  • Jeffrey Gouweleeuw and Noah Sarenren-Bazee made their comebacks from injury in a friendly last week but are unlikely to return to competitive action just yet.
  • Key man Marco Richter is fit again after missing the last two games and is likely to replace Andre Hahn, who is nursing an injury along with captain Daniel Baier.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Koubek; Lichtsteiner, Jedvaj, Uduokhai, Max; Khedira, Moravek; Richter, Gregoritsch, Vargas; Niederlechner

Unavailable: Suchy (Injured), Gotze (Injured), Gruezo (Injured)

Doubtful: Gouweleeuw (Injured), Sarenren-Bazee (Injured), Hahn (Injured), Baier (Injured)

BAYERN MUNICH

  • Bayern Munich's stay at the top of the Bundesliga table did not last long as they suffered their first defeat of the season at home to Hoffenheim last time out.
  • David Alaba and Leon Goretzka both returned to full training this week but a place on the bench might be the best they can hope for after lengthy spells on the sidelines.
  • Lucas Hernandez is fit again having missed the last couple of matches, and in-form Serge Gnabry should shake off the knock he picked up on international duty.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Neuer; Pavard, Sule, Boateng, Hernandez; Kimmich, Thiago Alcantara; Gnabry, Philippe Coutinho, Coman; Lewandowski

Unavailable: Arp (Injured)

Doubtful: Goretzka (Injured), Alaba (Injured), Gnabry (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Bayern have won seven of their last eight Bundesliga meetings with Augsburg and they will be keen to get back on track following their first loss of the season. The hosts have the joint-worst defence in the division and they are in for a busy afternoon against Gnabry, Lewandowski and Co.
