Our football match prediction:
Bayern Munich recorded a routine 2-0 win over Borussia M’gladbach at the weekend, but the mighty Bavarians have been playing below expectations under Carlo Ancelotti this season. The reigning champions aim to retain top position in the standings and, as before, they will go all guns blazing at their next rivals. Augsburg are on a three-game winless run in the national championship and they are unlikely to upset the title holders in Saturday’s football match. In previous two meetings between the two teams Bayern Munich emerged triumphant and Carlo Ancelotti’s men are likely to extend their winning run. Douglas Costa scored for Bayern on his return to the starting line-up against Borussia M’gladbach and the Brazilian winger is likely to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders. Taking everything into account, we predict that the Bavarians are going to record their third away win of the season.

Highlighted Team (Bayern Munich):
Over the years Bayern Munich have established themselves as one of the most successful European clubs. The Stern des Sudens (Star of the South) are the dominant force in German football and it has to be noted that the Bavarians clinched their 26th Bundesliga title in 2016. Bayern Munich have won 18 German Cup trophies, while winning the Champions League (European Cup) five times. The German giants clinched the Intercontinental Cup in 1976 and 2001, while lifting the FIFA Club World Cup trophy in 2013. Bayern Munich was founded in 1900 by eleven football players and their leader was Franz John. The Bavarians host their rivals at Allianz Arena (75,000), the stadium that was built in 2005. Fellow Bavarian sides TSV 1860 Munchen 1860 and Nurnberg are regarded as Bayern Munich’s fiercest rivals, but the rivalry between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern is big as well. The likes of Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Franz Beckenbauer, Lothar Matthaus, Oliver Kahn, Gerd Muller and Giovane Elber are famous footballers who played for Bayern Munich in the past.
