bundesliga.com has all the pre-match skinny from the Allianz Arena...
As if being knocked out of the DFB Cup wasn't enough, Bayern are now facing elimination from the UEFA Champions League following Wednesday's 3-0 semi-final first leg defeat to FC Barcelona. They say beware the wounded animal, but UEFA Europa League candidates FC Augsburg might just be licking their lips.
Wholesale changes are guaranteed with an eye to next Tuesday's gargantuan challenge at home to Barca. Mitchell Weiser, Javi Martinez, , Rico Streider - fresh from making his Bundesliga debut - Gaudino, Sinan Kurt and Claudio Pizarro are all expected to start. Pep Reina could also come in between the sticks for Manuel Neuer.
is touch-and-go owing to a niggling back complaint. Should the eight-goal forward miss out, Raul Bobadilla will likely move out wide, with either Tim Matavz or Sacha Mölders playing through the middle. Dominik Kohr and Bayern loanee Pierre-Emile Höjbjerg are also pushing for starts.
It was fantastic to see back out on the pitch doing what he does best on Matchday 31. The 26-year-old battering ram is still missing full-match sharpness after rupturing knee ligaments in last summer's Supercup, but he should be good for at least an hour this weekend. Bad news for Augsburg's front three.
If there's one man to match Martinez in the physicality department, though, it's . It remains to be seen where the stocky forward will line up, but that won't stop the Bundesliga's answer to the Incredible Hulk from getting right in the faces of the Bayern rearguard.
Pep Guardiola (head coach): "We've had personnel problems for the last three months now. I'll definitely be making one or two changes against Augsburg. We only have a chance of beating them if we put in a good performance."
Markus Weinziel (head coach): "We're playing against FC Bayern, who are German champions and have a great squad, even if they have a few injuries too. They've got the Barcelona game coming up [...] but they still have enormous quality in their side."
Bayern have lost their last three in all competitions since beating Hertha Berlin 1-0 on Matchday 30 and clinching the title less than 24 hours later. Sixth-placed Augsburg are winless in two, meanwhile, firing blanks in a goalless draw with 1. FC Köln a week after losing 2-1 at struggling Hamburger SV.
Mölders' solitary strike gave Augsburg a memorable 1-0 success that brought an end to Bayern's unbeaten Bundesliga run of 53 games last season. That, however, is the only time they've got the better of their illustrious neighbours, who made it six derby wins from seven with a crushing 4-0 victory earlier in the current campaign.
Bayern: Neuer - Weiser, Javi Martinez, Dante, Strieder - Lahm, Gaudino - T. Müller, M. Götze, Kurt - Pizarro
Augsburg: Hitz - Verhaegh, Hong, Klavan, Baba - Baier - Esswein, Feulner, Halil Altintop, Werner - Bobadilla
