Bayern eager to bounce back after a shocking defeat before the international break

<div><h2>Augsburg vs Bayern Munich</h2><p><a href=""><strong>Saturday, October 19, at WWK Arena (Augsburg)</strong></a></p><p>Before the international break, Bayern Munich shockingly lost their 1st Bundesliga match of the season. They “managed” to make that happened on their turf against Hoffenheim, one of the most disappointing teams this season, a team who lost many important players in the summer transfers window. It was very strange because Bayern were coming after that 7-2 win in Champions League against Tottenham on the road. But this is football, that’s why we love it, because it’s unscripted and beautiful for the neutral fans. On the other side, Augsburg are just 1 point above the red zone, they have the worst defence in the league with 19 goals conceded in 7 matches and they enter this match on the back of 2 heavy defeats (5-1 to Gladbach and 3-0 to Leverkusen). This match is the perfect opportunity for Lewandowski and Co. to bounce back and climb the standings. Leaders Gladbach are traveling to play Dortmund so they might lose points.</p><p><a href=";a=0d6ed5cd-99a2-41c2-abf3-f12f9f951422&amp;f=2" target="_blank"><img alt src="" style="width:100%" /></a></p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Despite losing at home to Hoffenheim, Robert Lewandowski delivered once again scoring his 11th goal of the Bundesliga season. Not just that but he extended his brilliant goal-scoring form netting 3 goals on the road against Latvia to book their Euro 2020 tickets with 2 rounds before the end of the qualifying tournament. Bayern Munich is one of the best clubs in the world. They were active on the summer transfer window bringing some high-quality players to add some extra value to their squad. Their main objective is to lift the Champions League trophy but that doesn’t mean they will neglect their domestic league. Augsburg’ defender Jeffrey Gouweleeuw returned from an injury in a friendly last week, so we expect him play against Bayern. Florian Niederlechner scored 4 goals for Augsburg this season and the fans expect him to find the back of the net also against the Bavarian giants.</p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>Bayern’s red-hot form came to end last round, but we think it was just a mistake. We always expect 3-4 surprise results during a season. Serge Gnabry and Philippe Coutinho are 2 of the most important players for Bayern and we expect them to deliver once again. They will take advantage of Augsburg’s huge defensive struggles as they have the necessary skills to find spaces and to create many scoring opportunities. Bayern average 2.47 points per game against Augsburg in the league, which is higher than against any other current top-flight club. With that said we expect another high-scoring affair combined with an away win.</p><p><a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Bundesliga Betting Odds"><em><strong>Best tip for the match: Bayern Munich to win and over 3.5 goals at 1.87 with Coral</strong></em></a></p></div>
