Home Team: Augsburg

Augsburg are nearing the relegation drop as they enter this round of fixtures in 15th position. They are only 3 points above safety, and will know that they will be in a fight for survival until the very last game. In their most recent fixture, they were badly beaten by Werder Bremen in a 4-0 drubbing. It was effectively game over before the half hour mark, with it already being 3-0. Augsburg dominated the possession, but were toothless up front.

Augsburg have a far superior goal difference to the sides below them, as they hadn’t lost by more than 1 goal up until the last four games, where they have lost 4-0, and 2-0. Augsburg manager Manuel Baum will hope that it won’t be a sign of things to come as they’ll want to propel themselves from the bottom three sooner rather than later. Alfred Finnbogason is the main man for Augsburg, as the Icelandic international has scored 10 goals this season, including a hat-trick in their last home match in a 3-0 win against Mainz.

Away Team: Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich have been exchanging places with Borussia Monchengladbach all season between positions 2nd and 3rd, but realistically have always been the main threats to Dortmund’s top spot. Unlike previous seasons, Bayern Munich have not walked to a championship, and find themselves equal favourites with Borussia Dortmund. They did manage to reduce the gap from 7 points to 5 last weekend, as Dortmund drew a game 3-3 in which they were leading 3-0.

Bayern Munich knew that score line before playing their home game as rivals Schalke 04, who they saw off relatively comfortably in a 3-1 win. Serge Gnabry scored again for Bayern Munich as the youngster is continue to pop up with the goals, and Robert Lewandowski scored as he usually does, taking his Bundesliga tally to 13 goals. Can Bayern put more pressure on Dortmund and temporarily, at least, reduce the gap at the top to two points?

Head to Head

In the reverse fixture back in September, Augsburg ended a consecutive 7 match losing streak against Bayern Munich with a 1-1 draw at the Allianz Arena, with Felix Gotze scoring a late goal for the visitors. Before that, Bayern Munich were utterly dominant in this fixture, winning with score lines such as 6-0, 4-1 and 4-0. Augsburg have recorded two wins over Bayern Munich in the last decade, with one coming at the Allianz Arena in 2015 when Pepe Reina was sent off after 13 minutes, in an end-of-season affair, and once at home in 2014 by the same score line. At that time, Augsburg ended Bayern Munich’s 53 match unbeaten run in the Bundesliga, despite Bayern Munich being crowned champions just a few weeks before.

Augsburg vs Bayern Munich Predictions and Betting Tips

bet now betting on football Augsburg have only beaten Bayern Munich when their foot has been off the gas, which is why they are at 9/1 to get a win here. Bayern Munich are favourites at 2/7 with a draw priced at 9/2. I don’t see Bayern Munich throwing away this great opportunity to put serious pressure on Dortmund, so I expect them to win comfortably here – my score line prediction is 0-3 at 15/2. To increase the odds, you can add Robert Lewandowski to score first in a scorecast at 19/1.

Augsburg managed to get a goal in the return fixture, and for them to go one better here, and score 2+ goals, that is at a generous 10/3. Finally, Bayern Munich tend to get at least two goals in most matches they play, and rarely keep clean sheets, so I’d back there to be at least 3.5 goals in this match at 1/1.
