Augsburg will face Bayern Munich at WWK Arena at German Bundesliga 22nd Round. Augsburg against Bayern Munich is the match with big interest after their previous matches at German Bundesliga. Review our thoughts on this match here below.
Augsburg this season stands on the cliff of relegation to Bundesliga 2. They are 18th at Bundesliga and their football is not giving any hope for being higher. Fuggerstädter won only 4 matches from 21, and only 2 games at home ground. However, at WWK Arena they scored 17 and conceded 16 goals. Best season for this club was 2014/15 when they finished at 5th position and played their greatest football. Augsburg this season has scored at least one goal in 10 of 11 home matches in all competitions.
Almost all main squad players are fit and ready to fight for saving their position in Bundesliga. They are very motivated, although, not always desire coincides with the possibilities.
Augsburg is great this season at shooting from direct free kicks, attack the set pieces and stealing the ball from the opposition. Very likely that they will play width, take a lot of shots and play aggressive football. However, they are facing problems this season at defending against long shots and counter-attacks.
Bayern Munich this season is playing as a Dortmund club chaser. They now stand in the second position and have only 5 points difference. Munich after a match against Augsburg will play in Champions League away against Liverpool, so they need to prepare very seriously. This club is facing trouble this season as they need to fight for the Bundesliga title and everything is not so easy as they expected.
Some of the main squad players will miss the next match due to injuries. A. Robben, R. Sanches, C. Tolisso and M. Neuer will miss this match. Some of the young talents left the club by loan to gain more experience.
This season club is showing great skill at attacking and defending set pieces, finishing scoring chances and creating chances through individual skills. Very likely that they will play possessional football with short passes, control the game in the opposition’s half and attack down the left. They are showing weaknesses at avoiding offside and protecting the lead.
In the first round of the Bundesliga, these teams have already met and ended the match in a draw. Prior to that, since the year 2015, Bayern won all matches against Augsburg.
