Just a few days after knocking Augsburg out of the DFB Pokal, Bayern Munich will take on their fellow Bavarian side in the Bundesliga. Saturday in Augsburg, Bayern will try to extend their lead at the top of the table heading into a Champions League match against PSV Eindhoven in the Netherlands.

After resting a few regulars during Wednesday’s victory over Augsburg, it’s likely that Carlo Ancelotti’s brings them back into the fold at the weekend. Robert Lewandowski, Arjen Robben, and Xabi Alonso all should be expected in the starting lineup. It’s possible that Ancelotti gives Thomas Müller a break this weekend also and goes with Douglas Costa in his place.

With only a two point lead over RB Leipzig in the table, it’s pertinent that Bayern take all three points at Augsburg this weekend. Leipzig visits Darmstadt in what looks like will be three points for them.
