Bayern Munich – Thomas Tuchel’s hunt for three straight wins

Bayern Munich were able to bounce back pretty well from the loss against RB Leipzig in the Super Cup. The team has picked up a big 4-0 win over Werder Bremen in the recent match and one of the big positives was striker Harry Kane getting on the score sheet for the first time in the Bayern Munich colours. Now, all eyes will be on Kane as Bayern Munich look to improve squad morale going into the next few weeks.

Team news: Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich are without a handful of players for the upcoming match. Harry Kane is almost certain to start the game and makes his home debut this weekend. Benjamin Pavard, who is keen on a move away from Bayern Munich, is a big doubt for the game largely because he is ill. Jamal Musiala has picked up a muscle injury that will rule him out of the game. Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer continues to remain on the sidelines as he continues his recovery from the leg break suffered back in January. Raphael Guerreiro is suffering from a calf injury that will keep him out of the game.

Bayern Munich predicted lineups (4-2-3-1):

Sven Ulreich, Noussair Mazraoui, Min-Jae Kim, Matthijs de Ligt, Alphonso Davies, Joshua Kimmich, Leon Goretzka, Leroy Sane, Thomas Mueller, Kingsley Coman, Harry Kane

Augsburg – hoping to avoid a big loss

Augsburg also began the campaign with a defeat but the loss against Unterhaching is a lot more painful. The defensive woes of the team were exposed even further following the 4-4 draw with Borussia Monchengladbach in the last match. Augsburg might have plenty of strength going forward but they may not be able to display the same strength in defensive areas. Augsburg will be quite scared about taking on Bayern Munich after having just conceded four goals. Augsburg been trashed by Bayern on a handful of occasions including in the last two meetings when the Giants have scored five goals in each match.

Team news: Augsburg

Augsburg have plenty of injury concerns coming into the encounter. Patric Pfeiffer misses out on this game as he will be suspended for the next two. However, the team will be welcoming Robert Gumny back from suspension. Raphael Framberger is the long-term injury concern for Augsburg, as his cruciate ligament injury will keep him out for several months. Reece Oxford is unavailable for the upcoming match as he is ill. Irvin Cardona continues to suffer from a back injury while Jeffrey Gouweleeuw is not yet fully recovered from the foot injury. Masaya Okugawa’s ligament tear will continue to keep him out of the action.
