Two Bavarian derby’s in one week? Sign Bayern Munich — and us — up.
Bayern Munich face off against FC Augsburg in the DFB Pokal on Wednesday, winning in strong fashion behind goals from Julian Green, Philipp Lahm, and David Alaba. But rather than facing off against their local rivals in the fortress that is the Allianz Arena, Bayern take the game to the green pitch of Augsburg.
While Augsburg are definitely struggling following Markus Weinzeirl’s move to Schalke 04, they’re still highly dangerous and could easily cause Bayern serious problems.
While Carlo Ancelotti heavily rotated in the mid-week fixture - he actually started Julian Green! — a weekend fixture against Ausgburg gives Bayern the chance to open keep some space between themselves and RB Leipzig. That’s especially important with Leipzig squaring off against Darmstadt and with stuggling Dortmund squaring off in the Revierderby, this could prove to be a major weekend for Bayern Munich in the title race.
