Munich have established a four point lead at the top of the table from nearest rivals Schalke, and will be supremely confident of picking up a convincing win against a struggling Augsberg.
The home side have mustered only 8 points so far from their 11 games and currently lie in 17th, one point clear of bottom placed Freiburg.
Central to Munich’s recent has been Mario Gomez, whose form of late set him on track to break a long standing goal scoring record.
His 12 goals so far this season in just 11 games has led some to believe he will smash Gerd Mueller’s outstanding record of 40 goals in the 1971/72 season, something even Mueller himself believes is possible.
“No doubt about it, I am confident Mario can break my record,” former Bayern and Germany great Mueller has said.
Gomez himself meanwhile is playing down the record and is instead focusing his efforts on this week’s game.
“This is just for the public,” Gomez told reporters on Thursday. “What matters and what remains are the titles you win with a team. League and Cup, that’s what matters. Obviously I am happy but at the end of the day scoring goals is my job.”
The two sides have not met in over 28 years, with Bayern running out convincing 6-0 winners the last time they did back in 1983. Chances of an upset look slim; Jos Luhukay’s side are still looking for their first ever Bundesliga win and have found the net the fewest time in the Bundesliga, while Bayern are the most prolific, finding the net 30 times already this season
