The German record champions have hit a rich vein of form and will hope to maintain their streak ahead of next Wednesday's top-of-the-table clash with leaders Dortmund


PROBABLE LINEUPS


BAYERN MUNICH


Neuer
Lahm, Boateng, Badstuber, Alaba

Tymoshchuk, Schweinsteiger
Robben, Muller, Ribery

Gomez



AUGSBURG


Jentzsch
Verhaegh, Sankoh, Langkamp, Ostrzolek
 Baier, Hosogai
Ndjeng, Koo, Bellinghausen
Rafael
 

Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes will welcome Bastian Schweinsteiger back into his starting XI after the midfielder missed out on the 2-0 win against Marseille in midweek. Anatoliy Tymoshchuk is tipped to partner the vice-captain in defensive midfield as Luiz Gustavo is banned for accumulated bookings.

However, the trainer could opt to use Toni Kroos in a holding role as well. Aside from Gustavo, Bayern will be without long-term casualty Daniel van Buyten, as well as Breno, who is not expected to play another game for the Munich side.

Augsburg are expected to use the same line-up as in last week's 2-1 win over Koln, with Nando Rafael retaining his spot in the centre of attack. Torsten Oehrl remains sidelined with a muscular injury, and will join Marcel de Jong, Dawda Bah and Akaki Gogia in the stands.
