Augsburg vs Bayern Munich
Date: Friday, 15 February 2019
Kick-Off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: WWK Arena (Augsburg).
Bayern Munich took advantage of Dortmund’s slip-up to narrow the gap behind leaders down to only five points thanks to a 3-1 victory over Schalke on Saturday evening.
The defending champions will thus be highly motivated to keep the push for the top of the standings with a three-pointer against relegation-threatened Augsburg in the first game of the new Matchday on Friday evening at WWK Arena.
The visitors are massive favourites coming into the tie as they’ll be up against the team which shipped four goals five days ago away at Werder Bremen.
Augsburg thus instantly returned to the old habits after a surprisingly easy 3-0 home win over Mainz in the previous home tie.
Fuggerstadter lost four of last five league matches. They were very easy to break down in the process.
The team led by Manuel Baum conceded two or more goals in five of past six league matches. It’s certainly not the kind of form you want to have before coming face to face against one of the deadliest attacking lines in the competition.
Augsburg vs Bayern Munich: Head-to-head
Bayern Munich were the dominant force in the history of H2H encounters with Fuggerstadter.
They won 15, drew 1 and lost 2 of 18 ties against Augsburg over the course of history.
However, we have to say that Augsburg managed to keep the Bavarians to a 1-1 draw when teams met reach other in late-September at Allianz Arena.
Four or more goals were scored in six consecutive H2H encounters before the mentioned 1-1 draw in this term of Bundesliga.
Augsburg vs Bayern Munich: Prediction
Niko Kovac’s men were quite productive in recent weeks. They notched three or more goals in five of past six matches in all competitions. We certainly expect them to maintain such brilliant attacking form against the struggling defensive line of Augsburg’s here.
Everything speaks in Bayern’s favour and we would be shocked to see anything else but an easy away win in a straightforward contest for the reigning Bundesliga champions here.
