BERLIN - Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich are hoping to take their UEFA Champions League form into the weekend’s Bundesliga action where they will defend an eight-point lead at the top of the table.

The Bayern management, boosted by the convincing 4-1 win over BATE Borisov, regard Saturday’s trip to Augsburg as the first of three must-win matches before the two-week winter break.

“We are still under pressure,” said Munich’s director of sport Matthias Sammer. “We don’t want to give up anything else until Christmas. We don’t want to give away any of the bonus that we have given ourselves.”

“We want to keep the lead in the Bundesliga and if possible increase it,” said Bayern captain Philipp Lahm.

Bayern’s final Bundesliga match of 2012 is against Borussia Monchengladbach, and then Jupp Heynckes’ team face Augsburg again in the German Cup Round of 16 on 18 December.
