Augsburg – Coach Julian Nagelsmann will rely heavily on an eleven for FC Bayern Munich away to FC Augsburg in the Bundesliga, which also started with a 2-0 win over FC Barcelona in the Champions League during the week.
There are two changes in defense for the German champions on Saturday. Matthijs de Ligt replaces the injured Lucas Hernández in central defense. Noussair Mazraoui starts at right back for Benjamin Pavard, who had to be replaced against Barcelona. Newcomer Mazraoui played very well. National team player Leon Goretzka plays in midfield in place of Marcel Sabitzer. National team player Serge Gnabry is a reserve player again.
Bayern have not won three times in a row in the league. That should change. “Basically, it’s not easy to play in Augsburg,” Nagelsmann said before kick-off on TV channel Sky: “They often have very straightforward ways to get in front of the goal. A lot of long balls.” In FCA, coach Enrico Maaßen offers a winning eleven in Bremen 1-0. Augsburg beat Bayern in their own stadium last season 2-1.
