The national team break has not sat well with Bayern Munich. Barça’s rival in the Champions League, who will visit Dinamo Kiev on Tuesday, was far from their overwhelming level and lost the Bavarian derby (2-1) to the surprising Augsburg, who came out of the third-to-last place they occupied.

Two arrivals, two goals

Bayern had a fictitious control of the game in the first half as they moved the ball without speed and did not disturb an Augsburg focused on defense, aggressive in pressure and tremendously effective in attack in their only two shots between the three sticks in the entire match.

Two arrivals from the left of Iago, Augsburg’s best, ended in a goal. In the 23rd minute, a center from the Brazilian full-back at the near post was cleared in the first instance by Lucas Hernandez, but the ball was free for Danish full-back Mads Pedersen, who nailed it into the net with a left-footed shot from outside.

Sabitzer, portrayed at 2-0

Polish goal 63 in 2021

The best news for Bayern in this first half was Robert Lewandowski’s goal, his 63rd in 2021 and 14th in the current edition of the Bundesliga. Benjamin Pavard crossed from the right, Thomas Müller (in his 600th game with the Bavarian team) played without spur control and the ball fell to the Pole, who released a powerful volley that, despite being centered, was not completely covered by Rafal Gikiewicz (38 ‘).

After the break, Lewandowski received a gift from Robert Gumny on clearance, but this time he forgave as he again got a centered volley that went over the crossbar (50 ‘).

Nagelsmann, at home, reacts

Julian Nagelsmann, born 40 kilometers from Augsburg and today against the team where he played as a youth and began his coaching career as head of his second squad, immediately ordered two changes in the 52nd minute: Alphonso Davies for Omar Richards on the left-handed side and Jamal Musiala for a Sabitzer portrayed for his loss at 2-0.

Bayern won in depth with Davies in the field and was locking up Augsburg by playing closer and closer to the area but without managing to finish off their plays.

Davies, an insufficient resource

Davies was his best resource with the rises on his wing and the Canadian made it 2-2 in the 74th minute, cutting an opponent and lavishing a cross shot that went very close to the post.
