Augsburg vs Bayern Munich Betting Preview – 15/02/2019

Augsburg vs Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich looks to continue their chase on Borussia Dortmund this Friday when they take on Augsburg. The Bundesliga season is now 21 matches deep and the hosts find themselves in 15th place desperately trying to steer clear of the relegation zone. Bayern, on the other hand, sits up in second place and are attempting to catch up with league leaders Borussia Dortmund who sit just five points ahead of them. The hosts will have a tough time leaving their ground with anything to show for their efforts, but after holding their opponents to a draw in their first meeting this season will be confident they can do so again.

Augsburg have little room for error with them sitting just four points clear of the relegation zone, but with Bayern Munich as their upcoming opponents, they look set to pick up a defeat. The hosts head into this match having won just two of their last five games and have lost the other three. Their latest fixture saw them go up against Werder Bremen, who made light work of them and eased to a 4-0 win. As mentioned above, when these sides first met the hosts managed to secure a 1-1 draw and SkyBet has a repeat result to happen priced at 10/1. Or, if you fancy Augsburg’s chance then 9/1 with SkyBet says they will win.

If Augsburg are going to see any success against Bayern Munich on Friday then they will need a big performance from their top goalscorer, Alfred Finnbogason who has racked up ten goals this season, seven more than their next highest scoring player. You can back the forward to score anytime with Betway at a price of 5/2. Bayern have been liable to conceding goals this season and with the hosts scoring in three of their last five, you may want to back BTTS with Bet365 for a price of 4/5.

Niko Kovač needs his side to secure three points from this upcoming fixture if he wants to keep Borussia Dortmund within catching distance. Bayern Munich arrives in good form to pick up a fairly straightforward win on Friday with them losing just one of their last 13 games. Since their defeat, they have picked up back-to-back wins against Hertha BSC and most recently against Schalke who they beat 3-1. As expected, Munich are clear favourites and can be backed with SkyBet at a price of 1/4. Munich to win with a -1 handicap sit at 8/11 with SkyBet.

Munich have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last five matches, but their prolific scoring has helped them secure wins. Over the last five games, Kovac’s men have scored 14 goals compared to the eight they have conceded. In all of those games, they have scored three or more goals and Bet365 has them to score 3+ goals priced at 5/6. Serge Gnabry has bagged three goals in his last two games and can be backed with Betway to add to his tally for a price of 5/4.
