Bayern Munich edged past FC Augsburg 2-0 at Allianz Arena in Matchday 25 of the Bundesliga.

Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich got past FC Augsburg in what was a sluggish performance by the hosts. The score finished at 2-0 in favor of the hosts and could have been more. After a very slow start in the first half, Bayern Munich made some halftime adjustments and looked more dangerous after the break. The away side also had some dangerous chances, but our sweeper-keeper Manuel Neuer made sure didn’t end up in the back of the net.

Thomas Muller was the first Bavarian to get on the scoresheet in the 53rd minute, latching on to a pinpoint long ball from Jerome Boateng. The ball fell right to Muller’s feet, who then slotted it past the keeper. The second goal came in the 90th minute after Leon Goretzka and Serge Gnabry linked up in the box, before Goretzka poked it past the keeper.

Next up for Bayern Munich is Union Berlin before their home fixture against Chelsea in the second leg of the Round of 16 in the Champions League. After a couple of weeks of midweek matches, Bayern will have a week off before this match and will use this time to get players rested before next week’s crucial games.
