Bayern Munich are desperately in need of points to close the gap with league leaders RB Leipzig and a three points against FC Augsburg could as well reduce the gap between the Bavarians and Leipzig although Leipzig face Augsburg.
Once again, we are expecting more goals from Bayern Munich, a team that has scored more than two goals within their last three Bundesliga matches, a thing that I think could help them on the long run.
VFL Wolfsburg sit ninth on the Bundesliga after sixteen matches. Wolfsburg have a tradition this season, scoring the opener in most of their games away and home matches.
The Team News
Bayern Munich have the highest casualties in terms of injuries with over four first team players sidelined already. Wolfsburg currently have no injury worries prior to the game.
Tiago Alcantara will miss the game due to too many yellow cards accrued in previous matches and this may prove detrimental to the Bavarians. Kingsley Coman and Niklas Sule are also out due to knee while Lucas Hernandez suffers an ankle injury.
