Bayern Munich have been able to open up a four-point lead at the top of the Bundesliga, and they will be looking to extend that advantage when they travel to Augsburg this week.
Bayern Munich have endured setbacks this season in their pursuit of another Bundesliga title. However, they have still be able to extend an advantage at the top of the league, as the sides around them have also been dropping points on the same weekends. Bayern were the only side in the top four to win on the most recent matchday, with Leipzig’s draw meaning that the lead for the Bavarians at the top was extended. Those around Bayern will be aware that they can’t give the champions an advantage at the top, but they may now be powerless, as Bayern are a side that traditionally improve as the season progresses. It was another testing game for Bayern last time out against Freiburg, as they needed a late Thomas Muller winner to secure the victory. Robert Lewandowski had fired Bayern ahead inside seven minutes at the Allianz Arena.
Augsburg would be pleased with their start to the season, as they don’t look to be in any immediate danger of being dragged into the relegation battle this season. They currently sit seven points clear of the relegation playoff spot, but a challenge for the European places also looks incredibly unlikely. They don’t come into this fixture in any kind of form, as they have lost three of their last four. They have also lost their last two games in the league. Their last defeat came at the weekend, as they were soundly beaten by Werder Bremen 2-0.
