. BAYERN MUNICH vs FC AUGSBURG Allianz Arena, Munich Saturday 11th September, 2015, 19:00 IST ***   The return of Bundesliga action following the international break is marked by the Bavarian Derby on Saturday when Bayern Munich host FC Augsburg at the Allianz Arena. Both sides have started the season in contrasting styles with Bayern winning all three of their games and Augsburg managing to just grab onto a solitary point, leaving them near the bottom of the table. However, recent history suggests that the game will be anything but one-sided as Augsburg managed to win 2 of their last 3 games versus Bayern.

Thirteen of Bayerna s players were involved in International action the last week and fatigue may mean that Pep Guardiola could […]

Bayern Munich Bayern come into the fixture on the back of a comfortable 2-0 win at Hoffenheim, but have a depleted squad at the moment.
