Bayern Munich vs Ingolstadt: Preview and Prediction
Bayern Munich vs Ingolstadt
Date: Saturday, 17 September 2016,
Kick-Off: 14:30 UK
Venue: Allianz Arena, Munich.
Bayern Munich return to their Bundesliga fixture on the back of a massive 5-0 win over Russian outfit FC Rostov in the mid-week Champions League fixture. Having won their opening two league matches, 6-0 against Bremen and 2-0 against Schalke, the Bavarian are sitting top of the league table. They are yet to concede a goal in five competitive matches this season, which includes 2-0 Super Cup victory over Dortmund and 2-0 DFB Pokal win over Carl-Zeiss Jena.
Ingolstadt on the other hand are still searching for their first win of the season. They earned a hard fought 1-1 draw in the opening league fixture at Hamburg. And then suffered a 2-0 loss to a brilliant Hertha Berlin. Things haven’t gone well for Markus Kauczinski, who took over as the new-head for this season. His team needed the lucky-lot of penalty shoot out to see off second division side Erzgebirge Aue in the DFB Pokal. They also failed to win in of their five pre-season friendlies.

Bayern Munich vs Ingolstadt: Prediction
It is hard to see any team coming to Munich and return with a point. With 5 competitive matches into the 2016/17 season, the Bavarians have scored 20 goals without reply. And Ingolstadt are coming here on the back of a terrible run of results. So expect a comfortable win for the home side from this Bundesliga clash.
