Augsburg-Bayern Munich Betting Preview: Why the visitors will score less than three goals

Phil Kitromilides explains why he is not expecting Pep Guardiola's side to be prolific in front of goal this evening
Bayern Munich continue their relentless march towards the defence of last season's historic treble with a trip to Augsburg in the DFB-Pokal this evening.

These two sides met in the league a month ago with Bayern triumphing 3-0 at the Allianz Arena and it is extremely difficult to see anything other than a win for Pep Guardiola's team this evening.

Coral price a victory for the visitors at 1/4 (1.25) while Augsburg can be backed at 17/2 (8.50) and the draw offered at 9/2 (5.50).

Yet, while Bayern managed three goals against Augsburg back at the beginning of November, there is no guarantee that they will be equally as prolific tonight.

Saturday's trip to Werder Bremen will have a higher priority for the champions and we could well see some squad rotation for tonight's encounter.

Bearing this in mind, then the price of 10/11 (1.91) for Bayern to score under 2.5 goals looks interesting. While FCB have been winning games this season, they have been less prolific than last season.

This bet has paid out in the majority of their Bundesliga games so far, as well as in each of their last three visits to Augsburg.

It might feel wrong backing against a team like Bayern scoring goals, but in fact, there is every chance that they will score less than three goals tonight.
