Augsburg will host Bayern Munich in the second round of the DFB-Pokal at the WWK Arena on Wednesday night. The Bavarians have won this competition a record 20 times during their illustrious history, while Augsburg have never reached the final. Meanwhile, Fuggerstadter’s best ever effort in the cup competition remains reaching the semi-final during the 2009-10 season. The hosts are heading into the match on the back of a 3-2 defeat to FC Koln in a Bundesliga fixture on Sunday, while Bayern thrashed SC Freiburg 5-0 on the same day.

Arne Maier, Frederick Jensen, Florian Niederlechner and Maurice Malone netted for Fuggerstadter at Heinz-Dettmer-Stadion. Meanwhile, Enrico Maaseen’s side have made a decent start to the 2022-23 Bundesliga campaign, having recorded four wins and one draw from 10 games, to be sitting at the 12th position in the standings. Augsburg have already recorded a victory against the Bavarians this season at the WWK Arena through Mergim Berisha’s winner last month. 

Bayern, on the other hand, have recorded four wins and one draw since their defeat to Augsburg on September 17. Julian Naglesmann’s side have managed to score a whopping 20 goals in their last five games across all competitions, while conceding just four times. Last time out against Freiburg, the Bavarians netted five times without reply courtesy of strikes from Serge Gnabry, Eric Maxim-Choupo-Moting, Leroy Sane, Sadio Mane and Marcel Sabitzer. It was Bayern’s fifth league-win of the campaign, taking their tally to 19 points from 10 games, just four points adrift of leaders United Berlin.
