After progressing to the Champions League quarter-finals with a 2-0 win over PSG, FC Bayern are at home again on Saturday, when they host FC Augsburg on Matchday 24 of the Bundesliga (kick-off 15:30 CET). Read in the facts and figures on the fixture why the Reds should be fancied to come out on top in the Bavarian derby. 

1. Bayern clear favourites at home

FC Bayern, FC Augsburg
Bayern and Jamal Musiala enjoyed a 1-0 win in their last home meeting with Augsburg almost a year ago.

There have been 11 Bavarian derbies at the Allianz Arena since Augsburg were promoted to the Bundesliga in 2011. The Munich men have triumphed an impressive nine times, while the points have been shared once. The German record champions' only home defeat against the Fuggerstädter came on Matchday 32 of the 2014/15 season, when they were already confirmed as champions. Moreover, FCB have conceded just six goals in those 11 encounters.

2. Nagelsmann's supposed favourite opponents

Julian Nagelsmann has racked up an impressive 12 wins against Augsburg to date. The Bayern head coach hasn't had more successes against any other club at professional level. The 35-year-old is also unbeaten in all of his seven home matches against the Swabians (W5 D2).

3. Jekyll and Hyde Augsburg in 2023

While Augsburg have won all four of their home games so far in 2023, Enrico Maaßen's side are still waiting for their first point on the road. No other Bundesliga team has such a wide discrepancy as FCA in this statistic. The last time they avoided defeat away from home was in November of last year, when they drew 2-2 at Union Berlin.

Bayern claimed a 5-2 victory in the DFB Cup second round in Augsburg the last time the sides met.

4. Meeting of opposites

Augsburg have been shown no fewer than 64 yellow cards this season, the most in the league. Bayern, in contrast, have received the fewest cautions (31). There's a similarly contradictory picture when it comes to the two teams' passing stats. The German record champions have played the most passes per game (624) after 23 matchdays, FCA the fewest (332).
