Brief break between Marseille and Augsburg

In the thick of what Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has christened seven “Bavarian weeks" featuring a total of 15 games, Bayern can look back with satisfaction on Tuesday’s victory over Marseille and sealing a place in the Champions League last four, but must already look ahead to a tricky clash against Augsburg in the Bundesliga on Saturday. There is just about time to relax and draw breath.

“We have a little longer than normal. We have three days until Augsburg," said Holger Badstuber, betraying a touch of relief that the Marseille clash took place on Tuesday evening. However, the centre back does not believe the current schedule poses a problem: “We've become used to switching focus rapidly over the last few weeks."
