Goals at both ends are usually on the agenda when this Bundesliga pair square off and we’re expecting this clash at the WWK Arena to be no different
Borussia Dortmund’s stunning 3-3 draw with Hoffenheim last weekend means second place Bayern Munich can move within two points of the league leaders on Friday.
888Sport expect Niko Kovac’s men to have few problems in picking up a victory against Augsburg, pricing an away win at just 27/100 (1.27) albeit they lost their last away league game 3-1 against Bayer Leverkusen.
The home side have picked up only 10 points in as many games at the WWK Arena this term and sit just outside the relegation places.
With Bayern made such heavy favourites, some punters might be turning to the handicap market with an away win by two clear goals priced at 7/10 (1.70).
Instead, it’s the 57/50 (2.14) quote about four or more goals being scored in the game that looks worthy of support.
Bayern have already conceded 24 times this season and while Augsburg are seemingly unlikely to take anything from the game in terms of points according to the odds, the home side could contribute to the goals tally.
Manuel Baum’s team have netted 29 goals, ranking them 11th in the Bundesliga in that metric and they found the net in the reverse fixture, taking a share of the spoils in a 1-1 draw at the Allianz Arena in September.
Both teams to score is 3/4 (1.75) this time around but considering these sides have been involved in plenty of action-packed matches of late, the extra pay-out potential of over 3.5 goals at 57/50 (2.14) makes more appeal.
This selection has paid out in Bayern’s last four league matches and in five of the last seven head-to-head meetings between the teams in all competitions.
It’s also paid out in five of Augsburg’s 10 home league games so far but it’s worth noting that they’re yet to host either of the leading two contenders in the division, who have racked up 101 goals between them this term.
Bayern’s defence is far from watertight but their attack has looked in fine form since returning from the winter break, it could be a profitable move to back this game to contain at least four goals at 57/50 (2.14) with 888Sport.
