FC Bayern loses at FC Augsburg

Derby bankruptcy at the Oktoberfest start: Bayern Munich continued its earnings crisis in the Bundesliga and had to accept the first defeat of the season. In the Bavarian duel with FC Augsburg, the team of coach Julian Nagelsmann surprisingly lost 0:1 (0:0) after another poor conversion of chances and goes into the international break with a lot of frustration.

Mergim Berisha (59th) scored the golden goal for the outsider. Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer could have scored the equalizer with a header (90+5), but just missed out on his opponent Rafal Gikiewicz, who reacted extremely well.

The Munich team, who went without a goal for the first time in 87 games in the Bundesliga, spoiled their mood for their traditional team outing Oktoberfest On Sunday. Four days after the 2-0 win in the Champions League against FC Barcelona, ​​Bayern couldn't get through against a strong Augsburg team.

"A little worried"

Bayern Munich's sporting director Hasan Salihamidžić criticized the team after the game. "We haven't won in four games in the Bundesliga, we got three out of twelve possible points, so I'm a little concerned," said the 45-year-old on "Sky" on Saturday. "You can't win in the Bundesliga the way we played today." You have "brutal problems against teams who play against us physically, who knock our socks off, so to speak," said Salihamidžić.

National player Thomas Müller also seemed concerned. "After four games without a win we are of course stunned and devastated, the weather suits that a bit, it was getting darker and darker," said the 33-year-old. The visibly disappointed trainer Julian Nagelsmann also found it "not so easy to find words". With a view to the upcoming international break, he said: "I'll think about it and then we'll see how it goes."

Nagelsmann didn't want to hear about possible celebrations on Sunday before the game, after all, "football quality is more important than any visit to the Wiesn". For that, compared to the Barca game, the 35-year-old brought Noussair Mazraoui, Leon Goretzka and Matthijs de Ligt for Benjamin Pavard, Marcel Sabitzer and the injured Lucas Hernandez. Maassen, on the other hand, left his team unchanged after the 1-0 win in Bremen.
