Picks & Preview: Bayern vs Augsburg 8/27/2023

Game Preview


The new Bundesliga season got off to a good start for Bayern Munich, and they’ll be looking to keep the momentum going. On Sunday, September 2nd, 2023, Augsburg will be the first team to visit the Allianz Arena.


Bayern Munich’s Super Cup loss to RB Leipzig cast doubt on their title defense heading into the season’s first weekend. On the first day of the season, Bayern put to rest any lingering questions about whether they were still a formidable force this year by cruising to a 3-0 victory away at Werder Bremen.


After being acquired from Tottenham Hotspur, Harry Kane was given his debut start and promptly delivered for the English national team. With 15 minutes left, he created a scoring chance for Leroy Sane before scoring the opening goal for the German giants. In the game’s final five minutes, Sane added another assist, and Mathys Tel scored the game-winning goal. This weekend, Bayern will play in front of their home crowd and will likely try to impress them.


Last weekend, Augsburg and Borussia Monchengladbach played in one of the most exciting opening day meetings in Bundesliga history, with both teams scoring eight goals. Sven Michel scored right before halftime to bring Augsburg even, and then Ruben Vargan put them ahead with 14 minutes to play.



But they couldn’t hold on for the dramatic victory; in the seventh minute of stoppage time, Gladbach was given a penalty. Tomas Cvancara scored after he successfully converted the penalty kick. There were plenty of defensive miscues from Augsburg in that tie, but there were also encouraging hints of the offensive quality that had been lacking in the whole 2022-23 campaign.


Recent history shows that Bayern Munich is the superior team, as they have won 22 of the last 29 meetings. The team from Augsburg has only won five games so far. Interestingly, the home team has won each of the last five meetings between these two teams, with Bayern taking three of the triumphs and Augsburg taking two.


On Sunday, Bayern will play in front of their home fans for the first time this season, and they will be expected to put on a show. The Bavarian giants should win all three points, and in his debut for his new team, Kane should score at least once.
