Bayern have scored 15 goals in their last four league matches without conceding and they can preserve one of only three unbeaten home records in the league by chalking up a tenth victory of the season in front of their own supporters.

Robert Lewandowski missed out on a goal in the 1-0 win at Borussia Mönchengladbach on Matchday 25 but the Pole got a brace in a 3-1 success in Augsburg in October and netted in a tenth tournament qualifier for Poland last week. The Bayern frontman is two goals behind Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the race to end the season as the Bundesliga’s topscorer.

Augsburg were held at home by Freiburg before the international break and a run of one win in six matches has seen an eight-point gap to the relegation places reduced to just two. The prospect of a fifth away win of the season at the home of the league leaders seems daunting but Augsburg have won at the Allianz Arena as recently as May 2015. Raul Bobadilla netted the only goal of the game that day.
