Bundesliga Preview: Bayern Munich - Augsburg

The visitors are in dire need of points in their bid to survive but face a side that has not lost a domestic match in 2013 in this uneven Bavarian derby.



After resting a number of players for recent Bundesliga matches, Bayern is likely to name something closer to its 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 is in the DFB Pokal final and a European final for the sixth time in its history. The club has only won both once, doing so back in 1967.
  • Jupp Heynckes' side has scored at least one goal in each of its last 35 Bundesliga games. With another strike against Augsburg, the club can set a new record.
  • FCB has not lost a Bavarian derby to any opponent since 2007.
  • Augsburg has won at the Allianz Arena more than any other visiting opponent (four) - but all of those were against 1860 Munich, 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 the second team.
