Bayern Munich welcome Augsburg to the Allianz Arena in this midweek round of Bundesliga fixtures. Considering their recent record against Tuesday’s visitors, Bayern will fully expect to maintain their 100% start to the new campaign.
Where and when: Allianz Arena – 25 September, kick-off 19:30

Last time: A Niklas Sule own goal put Augsburg into the lead when the teams last met in April, but Corentin Tolisso, James Rodriguez, Arjen Robben and Sandro Wagner all struck to give Bayern a convincing 4-1 victory.
Bayern Munich v Augsburg Predictions and Preview
It’s rare that Bayern start a Bundesliga game not as the huge favourites – especially at the Allianz Arena – and this fixture is no exception. Die Roten have won four out of four at the beginning of the new campaign, and they should make that five without too many problems on Tuesday night.
Bayern have won each of the last seven meetings between the sides, scoring 24 goals to Augsburg’s five. Der FCB have scored nine without reply in winning the last two games at the Allianz Arena, and they start as massive favourites in the betting at 1/8.
If you want to back the hosts, you’ll have to look to markets other than the outright result for some value. With that in mind, Niko Kovac’s side are 31/40 to win this game to nil, bringing the odds a lot closer to even money.
Augsburg are a huge price for the win, available at 30/1. Manuel Baum’s team started the new season with a win and a draw, but have since lost their last two games to lose all momentum. They may take heart from the absence of Corentin Tolisso, Kingsley Coman and Rafinha, while Augsburg could welcome back Alfred Finnbogason and Kilian Jakob.

Die Fuggerstadter could also take hope from their last victory over Bayern, which came at the Allianz Arena in May 2015. They won that game to nil, and are 60/1 to do so again, with another 1-0 triumph priced at 80/1.
However, there’s no denying that Bayern are the strong favourites for the win. It could merely be a question of how many goals Die Roten fire past their visitors, and there’s certainly some value in predicting the correct score. Bayern are 13/2 to win this game 3-0, which could be a solid bet.
One to watch for Bayern: Robert Lewandowski already has eight goals in seven appearances this season, and the Polish hitman will be on the goal trail here. He’ll be the favourite to open the scoring on Tuesday.
One to watch for Augsburg: Andre Hahn scored the winner in Augsburg’s only victory of the season at Fortuna Dusseldorf, and he could be a threat when the visitors get the ball in the final third.
Long shot: This Bayern side has the potential to smash the goals in against any other side in the Bundesliga. Die Roten are 22/1 to record another 6-0 victory against Augsburg at the Allianz Arena.
