Bayern Munich face Augsburg at Allianz Arena on Tuesday, Sept. 25. Here’s all the info you need to watch online.
The Bundesliga returns with midweek games in one of the busiest stretches of the season. For teams like Bayern Munich, who played in Champions League on Wednesday, Tuesday’s game against Augsburg will be their third game in a week.
Bayern continued their perfect start on Saturday against Schalke, winning 2-0. The win moved Bayern two points clear of second place Hertha Berlin, who they play on Friday. With four games in a week and a half stretch, Niko Kovac will have to rotate his squad against Augsburg. Players who have seen limited minutes this season like Sandro Wagner, Renato Sanches, and Serge Gnabry will likely start against Augsburg. While Bayern have the depth to rotate their squad at most positions, they do not have full-back depth with Rafinha injured. Kovac could give Joshua Kimmich and David Alaba a break by moving to a back three. Kovac preferred to use a back three with Frankfurt and could do the same with Bayern.
The Fuggerstadter started the season with four points in their first two games of the season but have lost their past two games. Injuries have caught up to Augsburg but will be without seven players. Alfred Finnbogason has been dealing with a patella injury and could miss Tuesday’s game. When healthy, Finnbogason has the ability to score consistently. The problem is, Finnbogason has struggled to stay healthy. Since joining Augsburg in 2015, Finnbogason has only played in 49 games, scoring 22 goals. Michael Gregoritsch formed a strong partnership with Finnbogason last season, scoring 13 goals, giving Augsburg a strong attack. However, when one of Finnbogason and Gregoritsch are out, the Augsburg attack struggles to generate chances against the top clubs.
The Bundesliga match between Bayern Munich and Augsburg will be broadcast on FS1. Live streaming is available on Fox Sports Go, which you can access with your cable or satellite subscription, either online or through their app.
Bayern have defeated Augsburg in seven straight games by a combined score of 24-5. The last time Augsburg was May 9, 2015, when they won 1-0 after Bayern keeper Pepe Reina was sent off in the 11th minute.
