Augsburg vs Bayern Munich
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Wednesday, 20 January 2021
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: WWK Arena.
The Bavarians have a lead of four points at the top of the table, and are on course to deliver a ninth straight league title. However, they need to be careful of getting arrogant.
Liverpool were almost in the same situation the last season – on course for a continental treble.
They seemed simply unstoppable. However, in the course of three match-days, spanning just a week, they were bundled out of two competitions, and they had to bid goodbye to hopes of finishing their league season unbeaten.
Likewise, Hans-Dieter Flick’s men were eliminated from the DFB Pokal the past game week, and that too by a team from the second division. And as of now they seem to be dropping points in the Bundesliga in regular intervals.
The team needs a huge win to silence critics and doubters, and Fuggerstadter seem like the apt opponent to secure such a victory against.
Not only are they in dismal form at the moment, but they are also placed just seven points above the relegation cut-off, and most importantly, they have a worrying h2h record against this rival over the years.
Considering these observations, expect Bayern Munich to post a convincing win this Wednesday.
Augsburg vs Bayern Munich: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Flick’s men recorded the past nine overall wins.
- They had also registered 17 of the preceding 20 overall victories.
- They had scored two or more goals in ten of the former eleven clashes.
- The visitors have a 100% winning record at this stadium since 2010, barring two encounters.
- The guests have also scored a total of 27 goals from the preceding 11 meetings here.
Augsburg vs Bayern Munich Prediction
Heiko Herrlich’s men lost 2-0 on the road the last match-day, against Bremen. In the meantime, the Bavarians registered a 2-1 win at home the past game week, against Freiburg.
Going on, Flick’s men are easily the best team in the world at the moment, and they are determined to showcase their superiority after recent setbacks.
On top of that, they also have a phenomenal h2h record against this opponent over the years, and have scored in plenty all through these fixtures.
Moreover, Fuggerstadter are also struggling to post points on the board in the last several match-days. In fact, they were winless in 13 of their former 17 overall match-ups, and they remained so in 15 of their past 20 appearances at home.
Considering these observations, expect Bayern Munich to post a commendable win this Wednesday, and to score in plenty in the process too.
