FC Augsburg is welcoming Bayern Munich to WWK ARENA in round 17 in the German Bundesliga.
Augsburg is struggling massively since the start of the season, and they have won only 2 of their last 11 games. Augsburg also got knocked out of the DFB Pokal just before the Christmas break. In their last two Bundesliga games, Augsburg has conceded 6 goals while scoring only 1 goal, and they have lost both of those games. Augsburg has scored only 17 goals so far, they have conceded 25 goals, and they are in 11th place with only 19 points. In their latest Bundesliga game against Werder on the road, Augsburg has had 51% of ball possession, 0 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 80% of the correct passes. Overall, not a bad game for Augsburg, but they conceded 2 late goals, and Augsburg has lost this match 2-0. With only 4 goals, Caligiuri is the leading goalscorer for Augsburg, while Hahn and Vargas added 3 goals each. Framberger is the only injured player, while Moravek and Jensen are still questionable. Augsburg has had a great last season, and while they are outside the relegation zone now, this season is not nearly good as the last one was.
After losing two games in a row, Bayern is back on track with a hard win against Freiburg, harder than it should have been. Bayern is still at the top of the Bundesliga table with 36 points, a massive 48 scored goals, an unusually high 25 conceded goals in 16 games. Bayern was playing well in that game against Freiburg, and they have had 59% of ball possession, 9 shots on goal, 14 corner kicks, 6 big chances created, and a high 89% of the correct passes. After leading at halftime, Bayern conceded a goal in the 62nd minute, and Freiburg was back in the game. Luckily for Bayern, Muller has scored their second goal in the 74th minute, and Bayern has deservedly won this match 2-1. Lewandowski is the best striker in the world right now, and he has scored 21 goals so far, while Muller added 7 goals and 6 assists. Kouassi is still injured, while Zirkzee is still suspended because of the red card. As the Champions League is approaching fast, Bayern must get rid of their quirks on the defensive end because it’s creating them a lot of unnecessary problems, and they have already conceded too many goals this season. Bayern is the biggest favorite to win Bundesliga, again, and they are one of the top teams in the Champions League, but with a defense like this, I just don’t see them defending the title.
In the 23 games Augsburg and Bayern have played against each other, Augsburg has won only 3 games, 2 games ended in a draw, while 18 games were won by Bayern. There is no question that Bayern is the better team here, and they will win this game, but the problem is finding the right market that will bring us at least some cash.
