Augsburg vs Bayern Munich Live: Match Preview
The Bavarians will be looking to stamp their authority in this away game. They were in good form before the international break, having won 2-1 against Freiburg. Julain Nagelsmann will hope that his team can carry forward this form after the international break as well. Bayern Munich will be more confident in this game as well, considering the history between the two sides.
The Bundesliga giants have won 16 of their previous 20 games against Fuggerstädter. On top of it, things haven’t gone as per plan for the away side as well. So far, they have only managed to get 9 points from eleven Bundesliga games. This means that this is their worst start to a Bundesliga season since 2015/16.
Things just don’t end here for the Fuggerstädter as they have failed to score in their previous five times this season. On the other, Bayern Munich’s defence is formidable as ever. This can be reflected from their start to the new season. Only under Guardiola in the 2015/16 season, they had more points (31) than the present season (28).

The Bavarians will have to be patient in his game as the hosts will sit deep. Kimmich will be the defensive midfielder for Bayern Munich. He will have time and space to pick out a pass to open up Augsburg. Not only this he will also have to assist his defenders during counterattacks.
