Bayern Munich-Augsburg Preview: Champions face Bavarian derby

Bayern Munich-Augsburg Preview: Champions face Bavarian derby

The visitors are in dire need of points in their bid to survive but face a side who have not lost a domestic match in 2013



After resting a number of players for recent Bundesliga matches, Bayern are likely to name something closer to their first-choice XI, with Philipp Lahm, Javi Martinez and Bastian Schweinsteiger among the stars likely to start.

Rafinha is suspended after his red card at Borussia Dortmund last week, as is Jerome Boateng, who picked up his fifth booking of the season at Signal Iduna Park.

Toni Kroos (thigh) and Holger Badstuber (knee) are both injured and will sit out yet another game.

Meanwhile, Augsburg will be without Sebastian Langkamp, who has a groin issue, Koo Ja-Cheol, who is coming back to full fitness after an injury problem of his own, and Jan-Ingwer Callsen-Bracker, who is supended after picking up five yellow cards.

  DID YOU KNOW?
  • Bayern Munich are in the DFB-Pokal final and a European final for the sixth time in their history. They have only won both once - back in 1967.
  • Jupp Heynckes' side have scored at least one goal in each of their last 35 Bundesliga games. With another strike against Augsburg, they can set a new record.
  • FCB have not lost a Bavarian derby to any opponent since 2007.
  • Augsburg have won at the Allianz Arena more than any other visiting opponents (four) - but all of those were against 1860, not Bayern.
  • The minnows have won just five points from their nine matches without Jan-Ingwer Callsen-Bracker this season.
  • Coach Markus Weinzierl was on Bayern's books between 1995 and 1999 but only ever represented their second team.
