A muscular problem prevents Pep Guardiola from picking the attacking midfielder, but he is expected to return for the Champions League clash with Olympiacos in midweek.
There is also a start for Thiago Alcantara in midfield, while Kingsley Coman is on the Bayern bench at the Allianz Arena.
Koo Ja-Cheol makes his first start for Augsburg since arriving in the summer, and Markus Weinzierl sticks with Raul Bobadilla as a lone striker in the hope that his side can pick up their first league win of the season.
