Guardiola wary of Augsburg challenge

Topics

Bayern Munich head coach Pep Guardiola is ready for a tough test when the Bundesliga leaders visit Augsburg on Saturday.

The champions have won their last five domestic matches and finished off the UEFA Champions League group stage with a 3-0 defeat of CSKA Moscow on Wednesday.

However, Augsburg are also on a hot streak after taking maximum points from their last four matches.

"It's a small ground and the stadium will be packed - it's a derby," commented Guardiola.

"They are aggressive, play with passion and have quick players."

On a plus note, Guardiola reported that, apart from long-term absentees, he has a fully fit squad to choose from.
