Augsburg is set to host Bayern Munich is round 22 of German Bundesliga.
Augsburg has had a rough season so far and are holding 15th place in the Bundesliga standings with only 18 points in 21 games. Augsburg is a team that just doesn’t have enough quality and depth to compete for a higher spot and will need to fight hard to keep their Bundesliga status. Augsburg’s record is 4 wins, 6 draws and 11 losses with 29 scored goals and 37 conceded goals. Augsburg is able to create some chances and score some goals but the problem is that they can’t keep the ball out of their net. Finnbogason leads Augsburg with 10 goals in 14 matches and is one of the top goal scorers in the Bundesliga, but he will not play this match because of the injury alongside Framberger, Gouweleeuw, Luthe and Schieber while Baier is suspended because of yellow cards.
Bayern Munich is the top dog in Germany and has been for years. Bayern has quality on both ends, bench players that can jump in at any time and most important, Bayern has a great game style and are in top form at the moment. Bayern’s away record this season is 8 wins, 0 draws and 3 losses. Bayern is holding 2nd place in the standings with 45 points, only 5 points behind Dortmund as the season gets more interesting. The most important thing for Bayern is that Neuer, their star goalkeeper, has recovered and is expected to stand between posts in this game. Levandowski leads the team with 13 goals. Robben and Tolliso are both injured and will not be playing. In the last 10 matches Bayern has 9 wins and has only 1 loss and because of that the team is filled with confidence and are catching up to Dortmund in the top of the standings.
In the last 20 matches between Augsburg and Bayern Munich Bayern has won 16, Augsburg has won 3 while 1 match ended in a draw. Bayern is playing in the Champions League next week and the coach might decide to rest some players here and for that reason I will choose something on goals.
