Augsburg vs Bayern Munich Prediction: DFB-Pokal Match Match on 19.10.2022
Betting TipBayern to Win
The most successful team in the history of the DFB Pokal play in second round action this week, as Bayern Munich begin their hunt for a 21st honour against Augsburg. However, the hosts will be looking to cause a shock and eliminate the 20-time winners.
DFB Pokal Preview
No team has been more successful in the history of the DFB Pokal than Bayern Munich. The German giants will be looking to win a 21st honour this season. However, it has been a slight dry spell in the competition in recent seasons, as they haven’t won the DFB Pokal since the 2019-20 campaign.
Bayern come into this fixture in steady form, as they have won four of the previous five matches in all competitions. However, they sit second in the current Bundesliga standings, as they trail Union Berlin by four points at this early stage. But, Bayern returned to dominant form in their previous fixture, with Sadio Mane getting among the goals in a 5-0 home win against Freiburg.
Augsburg are still looking for a first ever success in the DFB Pokal, with their previous best showing in the competition coming in the 2009-10 season, as they reached the semi-final stage of the tournament. This looks to be the hardest draw that they could have got in the competition this season, as they look to bounce back from some disappointing recent form.
The home side this week has failed to win in their previous two fixtures in the Bundesliga, and they were handed a fifth league defeat of the season in their most recent domestic fixture. That loss was suffered against FC Köln on Sunday.
Augsburg vs Bayern Munich Head to Head
Augsburg has a very decent recent record in this fixture, as they have won two of their previous three matches against Bayern Munich. Both of those wins came in home fixtures, with the previous four matches being won by the team with home advantage. However, each of the previous three fixtures between the sides in the DFB Pokal have been won by Bayern.
Augsburg vs Bayern Munich Prediction
Augsburg’s recent record in this fixture is an extremely interesting angle. However, we still struggle to see past Bayern Munich getting the win in this fixture on Wednesday. We expect a much-changed Bayern side to ease to a 3-1 win on the road.
