Bayern Munich will have the opportunity to stretch their advantage at the top of the Bundesliga standings this weekend. However, Augsburg has won two of their last three and will be looking to edge closer to the middle of the standings.
There is certainly an impression that there is a title race developing in the Bundesliga this term, as Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund currently sit level on points at the top of the standings after 23 rounds of fixtures. Bayern has won their previous two matches in the league, which has been an excellent response following defeat. However, pressure is being put on Munich, with Dortmund having won each of their last five.
Bayern was very professional in their most recent fixture, as they claimed a 2-1 win on the road against Stuttgart. The deadlock was opened after 39 minutes by Matthijs de Ligt, before the win was secured with just under half an hour remaining by Eric Maxim Choupo Moting. Bayern did lose their composure in the final stages and conceded a consolation, but their overall performance was solid.
Augsburg will have their sights set on a mid-table finish in the Bundesliga this term. They currently sit 13th overall, and could move up to eleventh with a victory this weekend. However, they will still have one eye on what’s happening behind them in the standings, as they are just eight points clear of the drop zone.
Augsburg comes into this fixture after a positive performance in their most recent fixture, as they registered a 2-1 home win against Werder Bremen. Their goals were scored very early in each of the two halves, with Dion Drena Beijo opening the scoring, before Arne Maier added a second very early in the second half.
Bayern Munich vs Augsburg Head to Head
Augsburg has picked up two wins from the previous three matches between the sides in the Bundesliga. However, both of their wins were recorded in home fixtures.
