Augsburg beat Bayern Munich with a 1-0 victory on Saturday at the WWK Arena. Augsburg were keen to hang onto their position at the top of the table and extend their winning run, following a 1-0 victory against Werder Bremen. Bayern had secured a point against Stuttgart in their previous match. Augsburg and Bayern currently occupy 11th and 3rd spots in the table, with 9 points and 12 points respectively after 7 matches.

After an uneventful first half, Augsburg piled on the pressure in the second and were rewarded, when Mergim Berisha found the net, at 59 minutes, which sealed the victory for Augsburg.

Substitutions for Augsburg included Mads Pedersen, Fredrik Jensen, Ruben Vargas and Lukas Petkov for Ermedin Demirovic, Florian Niederlechner, Iago and Mergim Berisha, respectively. Bayern brought on Serge Gnabry, Marcel Sabitzer, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Josip Stanisic, to replace Noussair Mazraoui, Leon Goretzka, Sadio Mane and Jamal Musiala.

There were bookings for Mergim Berisha, Andre Hahn and Jeffrey Gouweleeuw from Augsburg. For Bayern, Sadio Mane saw yellow.

Augsburg will next play Schalke away, with Bayern facing Bayer Leverkusen at home.
