BAY vs AUG Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Bayern Munich can move within two points of eternal rivals Borrusia Dortmund when they play Augsburg in Bundesliga at WWK ARENA (Augsburg Arena), in Augsburg, Bavaria, Germany, on Friday night (IST).
Borussia Dortmund are showing the signs of crumbling under the title pressure, and are starting to drop points. Their 3-0 surrender at Wembley gave more indication that Lucien Favre's team is not as dominant as it was earlier in the season.
For that reason, Bayern Munich can sense a good opportunity to suffocate the pace setters even further. This match is a chance for the Bavarian giants to close down the gap to just two points.
But the Yellow and the Black will have a game in hand which they could exercise to extend the lead back to five on Monday, it's a chance nonetheless as the leaders at stuttering and Bayern can't afford to let it go.
Augsburg meanwhile are running bereft of consistency, though back to back to wins buck that trend to some extent before 4-0 thumping at Werder Bremen brought the reality picture.
As things stand, Augsburg are just three points away from the relegation zone, which in all retrospect look set to become zero considering the profile of their opponent.

BAY vs AUG Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Bayern Munich will be looking to put more pressure on the league leaders Borussia Dortmund who must be reeling after suffering their worst defeat of the season.

A win for Bayern is our call.
