Team News: Bayern Munich
Bayern Munich boss Julian Nagelsmann has to choose a team with limited availability. Kingsley Coman (Hamstring Injury), Lucas Hernández (Torn muscle bundle) and Bouna Sarr (Patella problems) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
We believe Bayern could decide to make use of a 4-2-3-1 formation, settling for Manuel Neuer, Noussair Mazraoui, Dayot Upamecano, Matthijs de Ligt, Alphonso Davies, Joshua Kimmich, Leon Goretzka, Leroy Sane, Thomas Mueller, Jamal Musiala and Sadio Mane.
In our opinion, Bayern Munich should be in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of their chances.
However, Augsburg might well find it a difficult task scoring goals of their own but we do think that it’s more than likely that they will be managing to get on the scoresheet here.
Accordingly, we see a 1-3 victory for Bayern Munich at the end of the 90 minutes.
