Friday night’s action sees Augsburg host Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga. Bayern have won nine of their 11 league games this season and boast a four point lead at the top of the table. They’ve also scored 40 goals in those 11 games. Augsburg, meanwhile, are one point above the relegation zone having won just two league games this season. It looks set to be a routine win for Bayern but we’ve dug out three best bets after finding some value in the markets.

NEW TO PADDY POWER?

Thomas Muller Anytime Assist

There was a spell a couple of seasons ago when it looked like Thomas Muller would leave Bayern after being frozen out by his former manager Niko Kovac. However, the German found a new lease of life after sticking around and has been sensational this season. The 32-year-old, who has also forced his way back into the national team, has five goals and 10 assists in just 15 appearances this campaign.

Muller has played as a No. 10 and I’m sure we’d all fancy our chances of setting up a goal if we had the likes of Robert Lewandowski, Serge Gnabry, Leroy Sane and Kingsley Coman around us. He’s set up a goal in 66 per cent of his games for Bayern this season so Thomas Muller Anytime Assist is a solid bet.

Bayern Munich -2

Bayern have been blowing teams away in recent years and this season is no different. The German champions have won 13 of their 15 games in the Bundesliga and the Champions League and have netted 57 goals in the process, conceding 13.

Despite their brilliant form, Bayern are just four points clear of Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga so Julian Nagelsmann will be on his side to put in a statement performance after the international break. Their opponents Augsburg have won two games all season and concede just under two goals a game. We’re going Bayern Munich -2 on the Handicap betting but if you’re feeling brave you could get on -3.

Correct Score 1-4

We’ve mentioned how Bayern can blow any team away but Both Teams to Score has landed in three of their last four games in all competitions. Bayern often get a healthy lead but a lack of concentration sees them concede a sloppy goal. Some of Bayern’s wins this season include 5-2, 5-1 and 4-1 scorelines. Expect Bayern to put this game to bed early on and then potentially concede a goal from a corner late on. We’re backing Bayern to Win 4-1.

Augsburg v Bayern Munich betting tips:

Thomas Muller Anytime Assist

Correct Score 1-4
