Bayern Munich – Augsburg SOCCER PICKS
The Bavarian derby between Bayern Munich and FC Augsburg will be played in Munich on Tuesday-evening. Bayern currently has little to fear from domestic competition. Will there be a regular victory?
After four matches in the new season, FC Bayern has not yet made a sting. On Saturday-evening, the team was sovereign in the paper-outing match against Schalke 04. However, the FCB had no problems at all. With a team in which coach Niko Kovac, in comparison with the game against Benfica had changed the necessary, Bayern was much too strong for the team from Gelsenkirchen. The home team walked behind the ball for ninety minutes. Bayern easily won 0-2.
These are busy weeks for Bayern, with matches on Friday (Hertha BSC) and next Tuesday (Ajax) in the offing. Kovac will continue for this match against Augsburg with the rotation in his basic eleven. Players who stayed on the bench in Gelsenkirchen, such as Jerome Boateng and Arjen Robben, will probably be able to count on a starting place again on Tuesday. When Kovac Robert Lewandowski, who played almost everything up to now, also wants to give some rest, Sandro Wagner is eligible for a starting place.
The Fuggerstädter started the season changeable. After a win on the opening game day, only a point was caught in the next three games. On Saturday, the club from West Bavaria lost on its own field with 2-3 from Werder Bremen. Just like in a match previously, goalkeeper Fabian Giefer played a role that you would rather not play as a goalkeeper. He was guilty of two goals and thus the defeat. It has the relative luck that the bank is not really a class keeper who can replace him.
Coach Manuel Baum considered the game against Bayen on Monday-afternoon. “It’s always difficult to choose the right tactics in the match against Bayern,” Baum said. “You should not be too anxious, but not too arrogant,” Baum said, who was optimistic about the chances of his team in the rest of the season. ‘The way we play, I am positive that we are going to take our points.’
