Augsburg will look to make it an unlikely two league wins in two games when they welcome perennial winners Bayern Munich to WWK Arena this Saturday.

The hosts won their second game of the season last weekend when they beat Werder Bremen 1-0 away from home. The win was secured courtesy of a 63rd-minute goal by summer signing Ermedin Demirovic; his second Bundesliga goal for the club.

Enrico Maaßen’s side got their first win of the season on Matchday 2 against Bayer Leverkusen, but have lost their four other fixtures to Freiburg, Mainz, Hoffenheim, and Hertha Berlin

So far, three of those losses have fallen on home soil, a worrying sign for a team who are always struggling to stay up in the Bundesliga. Their start to the season sees them sitting in 13th place after six rounds of games, one point ahead of the relegation zone. 

With reports of a potential managerial change over the impending international break surfacing, manager Maaßen may need to mastermind an unlikely victory over ten-time consecutive Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich to save his job.

Possible Augsburg starting line-up

Rafal Gikiewicz; Maximilian Bauer, Jeffrey Gouweleeuw, Robert Gumny; Niederlechner, Carlos Gruezo, Andre Hahn, Elvis Rexhbecaj, Iago; Mergim Berisha, Ermedin Demirovic.

Injured: Dikeno Salifou, Felix Uduokhai, Frederick Winther, Reece Oxford, Niklas Dorsch, Dikeni Salifou, Sarenren-Bazee, Tobias Strobl

Doubtful: None

Suspended: None

Bayern Munich 

Bayern Munich quenched every talk of a possible early capitulation when they beat Barcelona 2-0 in the Champions League on Wednesday. Late goals from Lucas Hernández and Leroy Sane gave Julian Nagelsmann’s side all three points on the night that saw former Bayern striker Robert Lewandowski fail to take his chances.

The win was their second in the Champions League this season as they extended their unbeaten run in the UCL group stage to 30 games. 

However, in the league, it has been a different story in recent times. The Bavarians are winless in their last three Bundesliga games after failing to defeat Stuttgart in a 2-2 draw at home in their last league outing.  

The result was their third league draw on the bounce and so they come into this tie sitting in third place, two points behind table-toppers Union Berlin.

The pressure will soon begin to mount upon Julian Nagelsmann unless he can get a win that will prevent the visitors from matching their club record for consecutive top-flight draws set back in 1995. 

Given how porous Augsburg have been at the back (with one clean sheet in nine league games), Bayern will fancy their attack which has scored 19 goals in the league this season to get a few goals in this game. 

Possible Bayern Munich starting line-up

Manuel Neuer; Noussair Mazraoui, Matthijs de Ligt, Dayot Upamecano, Alphonso Davies; Joshua Kimmich, Leon Goretzka; Thomas Muller, Leroy Sane, Serge Gnabry, Sadio Mane. 

Injured: Bouna Sarr, Kingsley Coman 

Doubtful: Lucas Hernandez, Benjamin Pavard, 

Suspended: None
