Bayern Munich 1-0 Augsburg: Player ratings


Bayern Munich had to rely on a late penalty from Robert Lewandowski to inch past Bavarian rivals Augsburg on Saturday.

The hosts began brightly but Augsburg were clearly not afraid of Bayern, pressing with a high line and trying to get in behind their backline. Andre Hahn profited from a sloppy back-pass from Tanguy Nianzou but just couldn’t get a shot off.

Bayern had their own chances early on as well. Lewandowski was inches away from connecting with a header, before Joshua Kimmich dragged wide from a nice position.

However, while the league leaders dominated possession, they failed to test Rafal Gikiewicz in the Augsburg goal in the first half – neither side had a shot on target – and Julian Nagelsmann will have been hugely disappointed with his side at the break.

It took Bayern under a minute to have their first effort on goal. Lewandowski’s excellent header looked destined for the net but Gikiewicz pulled out a beautiful save to keep things level.
