Following a 2-1 defeat to Hoffenheim, Bayern Munich will be traveling to Augsburg to write their wrongs. The match will take place at the Augsburg Arena slated for Saturday with kickoff at 14:30 GTM.
Bayern Munich has suffered a slow start to their Bundesliga campaign, currently at third place with two points clear off title contenders M’gladbach. They will be taking on a poor in form Augsburg who come off a 5-1 thrashing at the hands of Borrusia Monchengladbach.
Bayern slipped off an important win by letting poor in form Hoffenheim take off a 2-1 win. The team sits a point below unbeaten Wolfsburg who has shown consistency from the start of the season. However, Bayern was the talk of the town following the 7-2 hammering of Tottenham Hotspurs in the Champions League.
Augsburg is yet to keep a clean sheet in any of their games in the Bundesliga this season. However, they have managed to concede at least three in their four of the seven Bundesliga games in this season. They have only won one game and are a point clear of the relegation zone ahead of Fortuna Dusseldorf.
