Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Allianz Arena (Munich).

Bayern Munich will continue their battle for the throne on Saturday afternoon when they host bottom-half Augsburg in Bundesliga’s Gameweek No 24.

The Bavarians are still lock on points with Borussia Dortmund atop the league ladder after the last weekend’s 1-2 win at Stuttgart.

It was a match Julian Nagelsmann’s men controlled from the first to the last minute, creating several chances on top of the goals scored by Matthijs de Ligt and Erik Maxim Chuopo-Moting.

The reigning champions now have four wins in the last five league outings. They have bagged at least two goals in each of these five games in the process.

Der FCB also have some of their main stars back in contention including Sadio Mane and Leroy Sane who both came on from the bench seven days ago at Mercedes-Benz-Arena.

The hosts are huge favorites on Saturday due to the obvious gulf in quality between them and Augsburg.

The visitors will enter this game on a high after an important 2-1 win over Werder Bremen last weekend. Die Fuggestadter are now eight points above the red zone line after winning three of the last five league affairs.

Nevertheless, Augsburg do struggle to translate the fine home form to travels as they will visit Munich off the back of four consecutive road losses in Bundesliga this season.

Bayern Munich vs Augsburg Head-to-head

  • Bayern Munich have been the dominant force in the history of this matchup with 10 wins, 1 draw, and 1 loss in the last 12 home encounters with Die Fuggerstadter.
  • Der FCB destroyed Augsburg 2-5 when they visited WWK Arena in the second round of DFB Pokal in mid October last year.
  • It is, however, worth noting that Augsburg did win the last two league games against the Bavarians at WWK Arena, each time by the 1-0 scoreline.

Bayern Munich vs Augsburg Prediction

Bayern Munich have the best attacking record in the league with 66 goals in 23 games so far in the campaign. Augsburg shipped twelve goals in the last four away defeats in Bundesliga.

This should be as one-sided contest as it can get and we expect the hosts to finish the job by the half-time break. You can back Bayern Munich to win the first half in -1.5 Asian Handicap at the attractive 2.50 odds.
