Augsburg vs Bayern Munich
German Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 29th October 2016,
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: WWK Arena (Augsburg).

Augsburg’s sloppy football will be put to stern test when they welcome the defending Champions Bayern Munich for the match day 9 of Bundesliga 2016/17 season.

Augsburg sit 12th on the log with 8 points from their 8 matches so far. They were defeated by Freiburg last week by a 2-1 margin, which is their 4th defeat this season. Also, they are on a three match win-less run as a draw against Schalke sits in the middle of two defeats. However, they are unbeaten in the last two home matches as they held Schalke to a 1-1 draw and defeated Darmstadt 1-0.

Bayern Munich were held to two back-to-back draws before they fought their way back to win against Monchengladbach last weekend. They Bavarians still sits at the top of the Bundesliga table and are unbeaten after 8-matchweeks in the current season. However, Bayern are still short of their usual best and could struggle against well-organized defensive units.

Augsburg vs Bayern Munich: Prediction

Augsburg are under a lot of pressure as they lie very close to the relegation zone. A meagre 2 point separate them from 16th placed Wolfsburg and the fixture against Bayern Munich couldn’t have come at the worse time.

Bayern are expected to win this won with ease with Augsburg struggling in all fronts at the moment. But the hosts could profit if Ancelotti decides to rest a number of key players with the mid-week Champions League clash in mind. But we believe they will still sneak a win here a draw or defeat is very unlikely for the record German Champions.
