Bayern : The Bavarians are playing like Champions now, Jupp Heynckes knows how to manage Bayern more than any manager it seems, Bayern weren’t on top of the table 5 MatchDays ago but now they are, with 26 points, scoring 27 times and conceding only 8 times after 11 MatchDays. Now they face a rather in form Augsburg on MatchDay 12 of the Bundesliga. Bayern had to realease many players for the International break but they will be relieved to know that no players got injured while playing for their National team. Any fresh injury now may cost Bayern heavily as already they are out with key players like Neuer and Ribery for the year with Bernat, Muller, Boateng and Alaba looking unfit for a match. Though Boateng and Alaba’s muscle and thigh injury doesn’t look serious but both sat out in their last international match as a precaution. Bayern will be looking to get all 3 points in the Allianz Arena as Leipzig(2nd) and Dortmund(3rd) are following them with a difference of 4 and 6 points.
Possible line up – Bayern (4-2-3-1) : Ulreich; Kimmich, Hummels, Sule, Alaba; Thiago, Martinez; Robben, James, Coman; Lewandowski.
Augsburg : Their last 5 matches weren’t according to plan surely as they lost 2, drew 2 and won only once but their table position isn’t bad as they stand on 10th position with 16 points, scoring 16 times and conceding 11 times but a win is needed for some fresh air in the Augsburg squad. They may have to wait till MatchDay 13 for that, as they face Bayern Munich on the road on MatchDay 12. Left-back Philipp Max and striker Alfred Finnbogason will be the players to watch out for in the Bavarian Derby. Max assisted 5 times and also scored once in 11 MatchDays on the other hand Finnbogason scored 5 times in 10 MatchDays for Augsburg. Manuel Baum does have some injury concerns to deal with as Sergio Cordova and Martin Hinteregger will remain out till December. With Leitner, Teigl, Gellios, Moravek and Gregoritsch all marked as doubts for the fixture.
Possible line up – Augsburg (4-2-3-1) : Hitz; Opare, Gouweleeuw, Danso, Max; R.Khedira, Baier; Caiuby, Koo, Heller; Finnbogason.
