5 facts and figures on the season finale against FC Augsburg
Before FC Bayern are presented with the Meisterschale to bring down the curtain on the 2020/21 Bundesliga season this Saturday, things will get a little heated once again at the Allianz Arena. On Matchday 34, the old and new German champions will take on their Bavarian neighbours FC Augsburg (15:30 CEST). Here are the most important facts and figures on FCB vs. FCA:
1. FCB's clear dominance
FC Bayern have won 79% of their Bundesliga matches against FC Augsburg (15 out of 19) - the only club the German record champions have a better win rate against is Energie Cottbus (83%), on the basis of having contested at least ten clashes in the German top flight. In addition, the men from Munich have on average conceded fewer goals against FCA than against any other current Bundesliga team (0.68 per game).
2. Warm-up for the trophy presentation
The old and new German champions from Munich have won 13 of their most recent 14 Bundesliga matches on the final matchday - the only defeat was against VfB Stuttgart (4-1) in 2018, when FCB had long been crowned champions.
3. No matchday without a Bayern goal celebration?
With a goal against Augsburg, Hansi Flick's team could become only the third team in Bundesliga history to score in all 34 games of the season. Only 1. FC Köln have previously managed this in 1963/64 (30 games in those days) and Bayern themselves in the 2012/13 treble-winning season. FCB have the form to do it: the record champions scored in their 70th straight competitive match in the 2-2 draw at Freiburg, further extending the record in German professional football.
4. Lewandowski wants the outright record...
With his opener at Freiburg, Robert Lewandowski equalled Gerd Müller's record of 40 goals from the 1971/72 season - and against Augsburg, he could now become the outright record holder. The Pole has needed only 59 minutes per goal this season and now faces one of his favourite opponents: the Best FIFA Men's Player has been directly involved in 25 goals against FC Augsburg in his Bundesliga career. The only club he's had more goal contributions against is VfL Wolfsburg (27). In his last two home games against FCA alone, he was directly involved in seven of Bayern's nine goals (five goals, two assists).
5. ...and will celebrate a milestone
Lewandowski is also set to make his 350th Bundesliga appearance against Augsburg. If he does, the Poland captain could also celebrate his 250th win.
