Bayern Munich are hoping to build their winning momentum when they lock horns with FC Augsburg on Thursday. The Bavarians have a healthy four-point lead over RB Leipzig heading into this week’s round of fixtures, so claiming all three points could help them sustain pressure on their nearest competitors, all of who have dropped points this past matchday.
Predicted Bayern Munich Lineup Vs FC Augsburg
Hansi Flick could ring in a couple of changes to the side that faced SC Freiburg on the weekend. Alphonso Davies, in particular, could make way for Lucas Hernandez at left-back. Another change could see the right-back Benjamin Pavard being replaced by Niklas Sule, who had a little issue with match fitness in the last game.
Elsewhere, Jerome Boateng should continue his central defensive partnership alongside David Alaba following a relatively improved display against Freiburg. It will be interesting to see whether or not they can deal with the sharp attacking Augsburg, though, with goalkeeper Manuel Neuer desperately looking for only his third clean sheet of the season.
Flick had subbed Joshua Kimmich off during the final phase of the game against Freiburg, hinting his retention in the starting eleven this midweek. The Bayern Munich star should renew his central midfield partnership alongside Leon Goretzka, with Corentin Tolisso and Javi Martinez serving as potential alternatives.
Marc Roca is another option for Bayern Munich, although the Spaniard is unlikely to be used, especially after a penalty miss that saw the Bavarians getting knocked out of the DFB Cup against second division Holstein Kiel.
Flick has some key decisions to make in the final third, especially with Serge Gnabry picking up a fresh knock in the win over Freiburg. He is unlikely to feature this week in what could be a precautionary measure from the visiting side.
Gnabry’s absence, however, should pave the way for Leroy Sane to earn a start at right-wing. Kingsley Coman is likely to operate on the opposite flank, although Flick does have excellent alternatives in Jamal Musiala and Douglas Costa.
And finally, the Bayern Munich attack should once again be spearheaded by Robert Lewandowski, with last match’s star performer Thomas Muller partnering him in the number ten role.
