Theres value to be had adding both teams to score to a bet on the resurgent visitors BTTS has landed in 80% of Augsburgs home and 55% of Bayerns away days after all and going off that we like the look of a correct score prediction of 3-1 Bayern Munich. However, Augsburgs own defence has been their weak link, and theres no looking past that here. Hes already netted 18 Bundesliga goals against Augsburg more than against any other team. With Bayern very much in goal-scoring form, its tough to see the hosts getting a result against the reigning champions, particularly with star man Robert Lewandowski in good form.

Reversely, after their 3-1 defeatto form side Bayer Leverkusen, Bayern Munich were back to winning ways last weekend with avictory over Schalke to the same scoreline, a result that leaves them within five points of leagueleaders Dortmund. Coach Kovac may, however, look to make a few changes to give a few players a breather ahead of next weeksUEFA Champions League Round of 16 first leg away to Liverpool. Veteran Thomas Muller will be hard pushed to get into the starting eleven for a fourth game running, following another strong performance from Real Madrid-loanee James Rodriguez.

Add to that the fact that these two played draw when they met the last time and youll see that Bayerns job might not be as easy as expected. Bayern do have some problems with injuries, while some players are reportedly very tired. Theyve allowed at least one goal in every of their previous 5 matches. Of course, this doesnt mean that they wont get their job done! On top of everything, Bayern have been poor at the back lately. Still, it might not be as easy as it seems at first look.

To their benefit, goalkeeper Manuel Neuer is expected to be sidelineddue to an ongoing hand injury. Augsburgs scoring record, meanwhile, while hit and miss on the road, has been very consistent at the WWK Arena. Keeper Sven Ulreich has not kept a clean sheet in any of the five games in his absence and when looking back further over Bayerns away records, theyve actually only managed to keep out their opponents in two of their last ten competitive away matches (20%). While this sounds somewhat ominous for the hosts, they wont be without their chances. Not only have they scored at least one goal in all but one of their 10 home outings so far, but theyve also found the back of the net against stronger defences like Gladbach and Frankfurt.

Augsburg vs Bayern Munich H2H

His goal from the penalty spot last weekend against 17/18 runners up Schalke took him to eight goals for the season (one hat-trick and five singles) and he should like his chances to keep that run going here against an out-of-sorts Augsburg. It comes as no surprise that last seasons top scorer Robert Lewandowski (pictured) has been their main danger man. Bayern Munich have been the reigning champions in Germany for six years now, but they still look as hungry as ever for success. Niko Kovacs charges began their 2018/19 campaign with a commanding 5-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt in the Super Cup, followed that up with progression to the second round of the DFB Pokal, and then recorded four comfortable wins against Hoffenheim, Stuttgart, Bayer Leverkusen and Schalke in the league not too shabby. Bayern even eased to a win in their opening Champions League match against Benfica last Wednesday too, adding to coach Kovacs 100% winning start at the club.

Well, while there is no better feeling in German football than getting one over on Bayern Munich, unfortunately for Augsburg, their chances look very slim on Saturday.Bayern love nothing more than putting on a show for the home fans the Bavarians have won 16 of their 19 matches at the Allianz Arena since the start of the 17/18 season, with 12 of these being wins with over 3.5 total goals scored (63%) and Augsburg, as with most German sides, have a poor record on the road to the champions.Bayern Munich have won 7 of the last 8 total meetings at home to Augsburg (W7 L1), scoring three goals or more in over half of these. So what do we think for this match then? Coach Manuel Baum couldnt ask for a tougher match to try and get his team back on track.

They did, however, beat Holstein Kiel 1:0 in round three of the German DFB Cup. After a tough loss to Werder Bremen in the last round, FC Augsburg is hosting Bayern Munich at the SGL Arena. The win against Mainz was their first at home in the last seven matches. They won only once in the last six matches in the Bundesliga, against Mainz at home. Augsburg is just outside the danger zone, in 15th place. The Munich team is second in the table, five points behind Borussia Dortmund. Bayern has, together with Bayer Leverkusen, the best record in the last six matches, with five wins and one defeat. With Bayerns away from looking more than solid, they are clear favourites to take all three points from this game as well. In fact, the only game they lost in that period was to Bayer. Their home form has also been poor.

However, Augsburg do seem to have found their shooting boots, not only scoring in every match so far this season, but by also nearing the top of the charts for shots on target away from home only Leipzig (20) have taken more than Augsburg (18). Augsburgs two away wins in 2018 (W2 D5 L4) have both been against newly promoted sides Hannover in the 17/18 season and Dusseldorf in 18/19 one and this should prove a very difficult trend to break against the Bundesligas best defense, particularly with Manuel Neuer once again a permanent fixture between the sticks. Bayern Munich have failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their last five Bundesliga home matches, and with this being their fourth competitive fixture in the space of ten days, we could see them making the odd error. Our prediction: 4-1 Bayern. However, with Augsburg conceding three to Werder Bremen over the weekend, we cant see them bettering Bayern Munich on Tuesday. Now it would be easy to go on about how much better Bayern were than their competition, but what makes this particularly tough for Augsburg is their recent travelling record.

The Bavarians triumph over Mainz two weeks back proved nothing but a brief moment of relief for coach Manuel Baum, whose men lost 4-0 away to Werder Bremen last time out. With that being the only win in their last twelve Bundesliga outings (D3 L8), his side have fallen to within just three points of the relegation zone.To make matters worse, leading goalscorerAlfred Finnbogason who netted a hat-trick against Mainz is also a doubt for this big clash. There are betteropportunities for a side to get themselves back on track than against giants Bayern Munich, especially if youre a club in a position like Augsburgs.
