THE TEAM NEWS

BAYERN MUNICH

  • Bayern Munich made it 13 wins from their last 14 games in all competitions on Tuesday, edging past Schalke 04 in the DFB-Pokal quarter-finals.
  • Hernandez is a doubt after missing the trip to Schalke and the game may come too soon for Coman, who is still nursing a thigh injury.
  • Boateng is fit again after sitting out Tuesday's match because of illness so coach Flick is set to revert to what has become his established back four.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Neuer; Pavard, Boateng, Alaba, Davies; Kimmich, Thiago Alcantara; Gnabry, Muller, Coutinho; Zirkzee

Unavailable: Sule (Injured), Perisic (Injured), Lewandowski (Injured)

Doubtful: Coman (Injured), Hernandez (Injured)

AUGSBURG

  • Augsburg suffered their sixth defeat in eight games at home to Borussia Monchengladbach last Saturday and have taken just one point from teams inside the top four this season.
  • Coach Schmidt welcomes captain Baier back from suspension while Gotze and Hahn are also back in contention after injury and illness respectively.
  • Asta, Schieber and Giefer are the only definite absentees for Schmidt, and none of them are normally first-choice picks anyway.

Predicted line-up (4-1-4-1): Koubek; Framberger, Gouweleeuw, Jedvaj, Iago; Baier; Richter, Khedira, Gruezo, Max; Niederlechner

Unavailable: Asta (Injured), Schieber (Injured), Giefer (Injured)

Doubtful: Moravek (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Bayern Munich have won nine of their last 10 Bundesliga games and the majority of them have been comfortable wins too, with Flick's side scoring 36 goals and conceding just six. Augsburg have failed to score in their last three away outings so it should be another routine victory for the champions.
