Must-win derby

Bayern wary of in-form Augsburg

Hoffenheim, Basel, Berlin, Gladbach, Hannover, Marseille, Nürnberg and Marseille again have all been beaten, but Bayern's current marathon is far from over. Four days after sealing a berth in the Champions League last four, FCB play their ninth match in 29 days when Bavarian rivals Augsburg visit the Allianz Arena on Saturday (Live in English from 3.30 pm CET on FCB.tv Web Radio).

Yet again, the latest derby promises to push FCB to the limit. “We've been warned. There's no way we’ll underestimate our opponents," insisted Manuel Neuer, recalling last autumn's reverse fixture against the promoted club, who have climbed to 14th and look a good bet to retain their top-flight status. The minnows came within an ace of claiming two points off their illustrious neighbours last November, but Neuer made a world-class save from Edmond Kapllani to prevent the home side salvaging a 2–2 draw. “It was a very tough match," the keeper reminded reporters.
