BAYERN MARCH ON

Bayern move a step closer to a record-extending 10th successive Bundesliga title thanks to Lewandowski's 32nd Bundesliga goal of the season. Credit to Augsburg - they're desperately unlucky not to take a point from the Allianz Arena.

MÜLLER MILESTONE

Thomas Müller makes way, with his 300th Bundesliga win almost over the line. He'll be the first outfield player in history to reach the tally.

OFF THE LINE!

Davies tears away. Lewandowski is poised to add his second, but former Bayern man Dorsch makes a heroic clearance, with Gikiewicz beaten.

Goal probability
Goal probability determines the likelihood that the ball will land in the goal from every position on the pitch. The value is based on large amounts of data from previous years; factors such as shot angle, distance to goal and opponent pressure - as well as mathematical models.

OFF TARGET AGAIN

Musiala with the shot now, the Germany international dragging wide from 18 yards. Bayern have scored in their last 75 Bundesliga games in a row, dating back to 9 February 2020. They're turning the screw...
75'

COMAN!

Coman scored in Freiburg, but drags wide this time after a typical jinking run in off the right-hand side.

OVER FROM PAVARD

Pavard gets on the end of a Müller cross, but heads over. The Bayern right-back has been getting forward more and more in this second half.

RIGHT IDEA

Iago gets into the Bayern box and squares to Pepi. The American controls well and tries to turn and face goal, but is swamped by four red shirts and the chance is gone.

The xGoals value of a club is calculated from the sum of all goal probabilities (goals and shots on goal) of that team. During a match, it’s easy to see whether the club is performing better than expected (goals > xGoals) - or maybe even higher (xGoals > goals).
Those second-half saves aside, we still haven't seen a golden scoring opportunity at either end.

CHANCES!

Pavard gifts possession to Zeqiri, who makes Neuer work for the first time. Bayern go up the other hand with Kimmich, but his fierce long-range strike is met by a strong left hand from Gikiewicz.
59'

ROADRUNNER

Davies is on the attack immediately, but his cross is picked off before it can reach Lewandowski. Bayern are a completely different side when the Roadrunner is on the pitch.
58'

DAVIES ON

Davies, who made his comeback in midweek, makes his first Bundesliga appearance since December. Sabitzer's also on. Goretzka will surely start against Villarreal on Tuesday, so that's an understandable change from Nagelsmann. Richards hasn't really threatened like Davies can.

NOT CLICKING

Kimmich finds Nianzou with an in-swinging free-kick, but the Frenchman can only head it upwards rather than towards goal, and Gikiewicz is able to punch clear. That sums up Bayern's performance so far.

LEWANDOWSKI HEADER!

Lewandowski powers a header towards the bottom corner, but Gikiewicz springs to his right to swat it clear. Superb goalkeeping.

MUSIALA ON

Jamal Musiala replaces Serge Gnabry at the start of the second half. Nagelsmann perhaps has an eye on the Villarreal return leg with that change.

GOALLESS IN MUNICH

Iago lands awkwardly after contesting an aerial ball with Pavard. The physios are on, before the whistle sounds for half-time. Bayern haven't really got going - they haven't been allowed to by a very dogged Augsburg side.

TIME ADDED ON

Sixty seconds remaining at the Allianz Arena. Augsburg will be very happy with their display.

TELEGRAPHED

Kimmich shows quick feet and splits the Augsburg defence with a piercing through-ball. Lewandowski's on to it, but so too is countryman Gikiewicz. He takes an accidental knee to the temple for his efforts, but is OK to continue.
37'

NOTHING DOING

Oxford is a touch too physical on Lewandowski, but the ensuing set-piece routine between the Bayern No.9 and Müller doesn't deliver. Bayern are the second best team in the Bundesliga from free-kicks, according to Match Facts.

BAYERN PRESSURE

Great play from Bayern. Richards slips a pass through to Gnabry, who fizzes a ball across the edge of the area. Pavard takes aim, but his shot is blocked. The leaders come again as Müller feeds Kimmich, who fires wide from range.

THOU SHALL NOT PASS

Augsburg are giving Upamecano plenty to do. It's Gnabry, out on the left for Bayern, who has been keeping Gumny busy.

BLUSHES SPARED

Calamitous stuff at the back from Bayern. Nianzou is played into trouble by Upamecano. His attempted back pass is then picked off by Hahn, but Upamecano recovers to nick the ball clear, just as the Augsburg forward was about to let rip.
11'

LEWANDOWSKI ON THE PROWL

Goretzka gets the ball into the feet of Lewandowski in the Augsburg box. He twists and turns, but is eventually crowded out.
6'

DENIED

Gikiewicz looks long for Vargas. He controls on the edge of area, but Pavard chases back to toe the ball behind for a corner that comes to nothing.
3'

FIGHTING FIRE WITH FIRE

Vargas gets in behind Pavard, but Goretzka's on hand to sweep clear his cut-back before Caligiuri can pounce. Augsburg have scored at least once in all 15 of their away games so far this season.

HALF CHANCE

Gnabry takes on Gumny, but his dinked cross is just out of Lewandowski's reach at the far post. The Pole applauds the idea. That was close!

WE'RE OFF!

The ball's rolling at a capacity Allianz Arena. There are 75,000 in attendance for the Bavarian derby - what a sight, what a sound!
Kick-off!

INTO THE RECORD BOOKS

Joshua Kimmich, meanwhile, can make it 150 wins in 196 Bundesliga appearances, which would equal a Bundesliga record. Only ex-Bayern man Arjen Robben posted 150 top-flight victories at the same rate.

CLUB 300

If Bayern take all three points, Thomas Müller will be the third player at the club to reach 300 Bundesliga wins, after Oliver Kahn (310) and Manuel Neuer (currently on 312). However, he'd be the first in Bundesliga history to reach the milestone for one club.

LEWANGOALSKI

Lewandowski has scored 22 goals in 18 meetings with Augsburg, and has only failed to score in two of his 12 games against them as a Bayern player. He's on 31 goals for the current Bundesliga campaign. Forty-one is the record he set last term, remember...

WATCH: AUGSBURG 2-1 MAINZ

Augsburg picked up a huge win in their fight for survival in their rearranged Matchday 26 fixture with Mainz

WEINZIERL: WHO DARES WINS

"Games against Bayern are always special, of course, and we'll be up against a top side," commented Augsburg boss Markus Weinzierl. "We're the big underdogs, but we'll give absolutely everything and, as a unit, run ourselves into the ground to get a result. We'll have to make life tough for them, defend compactly and be alert. Anything is possible."

APPROACH THE KEY FOR NAGELSMANN

"It won't be an easy game," admitted Nagelsmann at his pre-match press conference. "We want to win and can't afford any slip-ups. Augsburg are on a good run. They play with different basic formations and are doing well. They have good team spirit and a good mentality. We'll be well motivated. The all-important thing is how we go about it."

WATCH: AUGSBURG 2-1 BAYERN

And why shouldn't we talk ponder a positive result for Augsburg? They beat Bayern 2-1 earlier this season.

THE STANDINGS

Bayern can restore their nine-point lead over Dortmund - who beat Stuttgart yesterday - with a win. Augsburg begin the day four points clear of the bottom three, in 13th place, with the potential to climb as high as 11th. Five rounds of fixtures remain after this weekend.

MORE ON THOSE TEAMS

Julian Nagelsmann makes four changes to the side beaten 1-0 by Villarreal in the UEFA Champions League in midweek. Lucas Hernandez is rested, so Tanguy Nianzou returns in central defence. Left-back Omar Richards replaces Alphonso Davies, whose return after 110 days out is being carefully managed, while Leon Goretzka and Leroy Sane are reinstated to the side. Jamal Musiala and Kingsley Coman make way. As for Augsburg, Ruben Vargas for the unavailable Mads Pedersen is the only change to the team that beat Mainz on Wednesday.
