Bayern Munich will return to the DFB Pokal on Wednesday with a second round matchup against fellow Bavarian club FC Augsburg. Bayern will also play in Augsburg this weekend as part of the Bundesliga.

Following Saturday’s big victory against Borussia Mönchengladbach, Bayern will be set on continuing to build momentum as they build toward the final international break of the Hinrunde. The first 45 minutes was Bayern’s best performance of the season.

Augsburg have lost two out of their last three matches and aren’t coming into the match with a lot of confidence.

In the first round, Bayern beat Carl Zeiss Jena 5-0, and Augsburg beat FV Ravensburg 2-0. Having been to the Final in four of the last five seasons, Bayern will be expecting to win.

We asked three of our writers to predict what lineup Ancelotti will play against Augsburg.
