Bayern Munich boosted by Holger Badstuber return after long spell out

Carlo Ancelotti believes Augsburg made life difficult for his Bayern Munich side in their 3-1 DFB Pokal victory.

Bayern Munich fans have grown accustomed to the aches and pains of high-profile wingers Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery over the last decade, but most of the Munich faithful's sympathy is reserved for their beloved defender Holger Badstuber, who has suffered five serious injuries since 2012.

It's not just the fans either. His teammates even feel the 27-year-old defender's pain too. As skipper Philipp Lahm so eloquently put it: "Everyone who loves football wants Holger to stay fit and healthy."

Augsburg have never scored, let alone won any of these, however they did manage to beat Bayern in the Bundesliga twice under ex-coach Markus Weinzierl -- but only when Pep Guardiola's side were already crowned champions and had seriously...

Vidal, Muller, Lewandowski and Neuer are Bayern Munich's Ballon d'Or four

The ESPN FC crew debate Bayern Munich's golden boy Renato Sanches.

The Ballon d'Or is usually the exclusive reserve of Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi, but who would win the internal Bavarian award?

Here, we rank Bayern Munich's fab Ballon d'Or four in order.

4. Arturo Vidal

In fourth place it's the combative Chile midfielder, Arturo Vidal.

It's not too harsh to suggest he is only on the list for his performances with his country, inspiring the Chileans to successive Copa Americas titles in 2015 and 2016. 

In his second spell in the Bundesliga, Vidal struggled...
