Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
The ground at WWK Arena will shake when Augsburg and Bayern Munich face each other in a highly-anticipated Bavarian derby on Saturday. Augsburg desperately needed a win against Werder Bremen, and they managed to get one, with the team putting an end to their three-game losing run, but they will have a mountain to climb in the local derby. The home team’s injury list is almost full, including the likes of Uduokhai, Winther, Oxford, Dorsch, Salifou, Sarenren-Bazee, and Strobl.
The reigning champions, on the other hand, have been dropping points week by week, meaning that they need to take Saturday’s derby seriously. Since Augsburg are seen as one of the main candidates for relegation, anything but a routine away win would be a major surprise. Both Kingsley Coman and Bouna Sarr are sidelined with injuries, while Leroy Sane is pushing for a start.
Highlighted Player (Fredrik Jensen):
Fredrik Jensen is a Norwegian footballer who plays for Belgian side Zulte Waregem as a midfielder. Jensen started his senior career at Odd and he made no less than 129 appearances for the Norwegian club (league) from 2012 to 2017. The 185-cm tall player then decided to take a step forward in his career and he joined Zulte Waregem in the summer of 2017.
Fredrik Jensen signed a four-year deal with the Belgian outfit and his contract should expire on June 30, 2021. Jensen’s main position is defensive midfield, but he is used as a central midfielder as well. The Zulte Waregem footballer, whose preferred foot is right, has yet to make his debut for Norway at senior level.
Fredrik Jensen made his Zulte Waregem debut in a thrilling 5-0 win over Eupen, with the Norwegian midfielder coming as a substitute for Onur Kaya in the dying minutes of the match. Jensen was born in Skien, Norway on May 18, 1993.
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.
