Bayern eyes another record against Augsburg
Munich, Germany (SportsNetwork.com) - Bayern Munich will hope to continue its run of dominance on Saturday against Augsburg at the Allianz Arena as the club attempts to set a new Bundesliga record for longest unbeaten streak in league play.
Bayern's 2-1 comeback win at Hoffenheim last weekend allowed the club to stretch its unbeaten run in the Bundesliga to 36 games, equaling Hamburg's record set from January 1982 to January 1983.
The last loss in the league for Pep Guardiola's men came in October 2012 against Bayer Leverkusen, and they will be facing an Augsburg side that has lost three of its last four games.
With five straight wins in all competitions, including a 1-0 triumph at Viktoria Plzen on Tuesday to secure a place in the knockout round of the Champions League, Bayern will be plenty confident.
In three meetings with Augsburg last season in all competitions, Bayern outscored the club 7-0 en route to winning all three meetings.
Borussia Dortmund is just one point back of Bayern in the league table and the club hopes to keep pressure on the leaders with another win at Wolfsburg.
The match features two of the league's in-form sides as both teams enter the contest on three-game winning streaks in the Bundesliga.
Dortmund's last league match saw Robert Lewandowski net a hat trick in a 6-1 victory over Stuttgart, but Jurgen Klopp's men are coming off of a 1-0 home defeat to Arsenal in the Champions League on Wednesday.
Third-place Bayer Leverkusen attempts to bounce back from a surprising defeat against last-place Braunschweig in its last match as the club welcomes Hamburg to the BayArena on Saturday.
Werder Bremen can move past Schalke with a win at the Veltins Arena, Hertha Berlin and Hoffenheim square off at the Rhein Neckar Arena in a battle of mid- table sides, Monchengladbach entertains Nurnberg, which is the only team in the league without a win, Eintracht is just two points above the bottom three and travels to Mainz, while Freiburg owns one win from 11 games and hosts Stuttgart.
On Friday, Hannover and Braunschweig played out a 0-0 draw.
