Time : 10:30 EDT (15:30 GMT)
Spread : Bayern Munich -2.25
Total : 3.75 Goals
German powerhouse Bayern Munich were in dominant form right before the international break, and they will now look to pick up where they left off, when they will play host to Augsburg on Saturday, November 18th. Augsburg are one of the most unpredictable teams in the Bundesliga so far in the season, and they are coming into this match having won just one of their last 6 matches.
Bayern Munich Preview :
Bayern Munich (8-2-1) might have been missing some key players the past couple of months, but that hasn’t stopped them from doing well in all competitions.
In their most recent match they easily overcame arch-rivals Dortmund by a massive 1-3 on the road, in a match where they had already scored all 3 goals before their opponents scored at the 88th minute.
That was their 3rd consecutive win in all competitions, while prior to that they had overcame Celtic by 1-2 on the road for the Champions League. That win saw them through to the next round of the competition.
As far as the Bundesliga is concerned, Bayern Munich are still riding at the top of the league table with 26 points, 4 points ahead of RB Leipzig, and 6 points ahead of Dortmund and Schalke.
Needless to say they have been dominat at home as well (4-1-0), where they only failed to defeat Wolfsburg after a 2-2 draw. However, they have have kept 6 clean sheets in their 7 home matches in all competitions.
Augsburg Preview :
Augsburg (4-4-3) are coming into this match after a hard-fought 1-1 draw at home against Bayer Leverkusen. Both goals were scored in a two minute span in the second half, as Augsburg came back from one goal behind to take the draw.
Prior to that they had recorded a really nice road win against Werder Bremen by 0-3, but that was their only win in their last 6 matches (1-3-2).
Augsburg are now sitting at the 10th spot of the Bundesliga with 16 points so far, having scored 16 goals so far, against 11 conceded.
They have been quite competitive on the road so far in the season (2-2-1), where they have scored 7 goals against 4 conceded.
Moreover, they are undefeated in each of their last 4 road matches, while all matches were against some really good teams.
Bayern Munich vs Augsburg Head-to-Head Stats :
Bayern Munich won both matches against Augsburg last season, as they defeated them by 1-3 on the road, before a massive 6-0 triumph at home.
They have won each of the last 5 matches between the two teams in all competitions, and they have overall had the upper hand in this match-up over the years (13-0-3).
Moreover, Bayern Munich have also been great as hosts against Augsburg (6-0-2), having won each of the last 3 matches here.
Bayern Munich vs Augsburg Prediction :
Bayern Munich might be missing their starting goalkeeper, Neuer, along with Ribery and Muller, but the team has so many star players, that their absence almost goes unnoticed. They should be able to overcome a much lesser Augsburg side here, but the visitors have been really unpredictable, and could cause some problems here.
Bayern Munich vs Augsburg Betting Tips :
While the home team by -2 @ 1.63 might be something to consider, I will alternatively take the Over 3.25 Goals here. Bayern Munich are capable of covering that by themselves, while Augsburg have been really competitive on the road, and might contribute towards that.
