They face an opponent in poor form, with Augsburg on the end of a 5-1 hammering against Borussia Monchengladbach last time out as they struggle for points in the Bundesliga.
Bayern lost their lead at the top of the table as they slipped to defeat against a struggling Hoffenheim side that picked up just their second win of the season.
Monchengladbach now sit atop the Bundesliga standings, with unbeaten Wolfsburg a point behind them and a point ahead of the reigning champions in third.
It was Bayern's first league defeat of the season and ended a four-game winning run across all competitions in which they scored a whopping 17 goals.
Just four days earlier they had humbled Tottenham Hotspur by a staggering 7-2 scoreline but were brought crashing down to earth themselves.
Augsburg have yet to keep a clean sheet, however, and have conceded at least three in four of their seven Bundesliga games so far this term.
They have also won just once and are a mere point clear of the relegation zone, ahead of Fortuna Dusseldorf, Union Berlin, Koln and Paderborn.
Augsburg form: DLWDLL
Bayern Munich form: DWWWWL
Bayern head coach Niko Kovac is boosted by the return of a number of first-team players to training.
Leon Goretzka is back with the group following surgery on a thigh problem and David Alaba is also back training after suffering a fractured rib. Additionally, Mickael Cuisance played for France's Under-20 side and is fit once more.
It may be too early still for either Goretzka or Alaba to feature just yet, but their returns are imminent and provide a significant boost to the club.
Young striker Jann-Fiete Arp is the only other major injury concern facing the reigning Bundesliga champions.
Augsburg possible starting lineup:
Koubek; Lichtsteiner, Jedvaj, Uduokhai, Max; Hahn, Moravek, Khedira, Vargas; Gregoritsch, Niederlechner
Bayern Munich possible starting lineup:
Neuer; Pavard, Sule, Boateng, Hernandez; Kimmich, Thiago; Coman, Coutinho, Gnabry; Lewandowski
We say: Augsburg 0-3 Bayern Munich
Augsburg have conceded eight goals in their last two games and we expect Bayern to be out to prove a point following their defeat against Hoffenheim. Don't bet against a big win for the reigning champions against a side yet to keep a clean sheet this term.
