Derby against Augsburg a tough test, warns Gomez

The Germany international is aware of the danger his side could face against Markus Weinzierl's men, who are aiming to cause an upset against the Bavarians
Bayern Munich forward Mario Gomez believes that their upcoming match against Augsburg this weekend will be a difficult one.

The fellow Bavarian side currently sit 17th in Bundesliga and will be looking to spring a surprise for Jupp Heynckes' men, who visit the SGL Arena on Saturday.

"They will run until they collapse," the 27-year-old was quoted as saying on the club's official website. "We have to do the same, then we will win. Augsburg are already fighting relegation, and it is a derby."

Coach Heynckes echoed the player's sentiments, insisting that Augsburg will put in extra effort when they meet Bayern.

"Augsburg are a powerful team, which often loses only narrowly. They will go the extra mile against us."

His counterpart, Marcus Weinzierl, is confident that his team can deliver a good performance as long as they approach the match with the right mentality.

"No one thinks we can get points against Bayern, but that is exactly what we want to do. We want to win this match and will give everything for it.

"Nurnberg secured a point against Bayern just a couple of matchdays ago. Why shouldn't we be able to do the same?"
