The manager of Bayern Munich, Julian Nagelsmann said he was left frustrated for the first time as the head coach of the club while watching lowly rated Augsburg defeat Bayern 2-1.

Bayern Munich traveled to WWK Arena to play a Bundesliga game against struggling Augsburg on Friday night, November 19, 2021. All bookmakers predicted that Bayern would win over the struggling German side. The chance that Augsburg would get a draw was so slim but the hosts were able to do the unthinkable against the league leaders.

Before the league game, Augsburg were rooted in the relegation zone after recording 6 defeats, 3 draws, and 2 wins. But the stunning 2-1 win over Bayern Munich has lifted the club from the relegation zone to the 15th spot with 12 points in 12 games, 2 points above the danger zone.

Julian Nagelsmann and his boys struggled so much during the game that before the 36th minute, Augsburg had already scored 2 goals.

Augsburg’s Mads Pedersen scored the first goal of the match in the 23rd minute. In the 36th minute, André Hahn doubled Augsburg’s lead.

Bayern Munich attempted to prevent the upset but the best they could do was to get a goal back in the 38th minute thanks to Robert Lewandowski’s strike.

After that, coach Julian Nagelsmann tried all he could to make his team break through the defense of Augsburg but his players could not do much.

During the game, Bayern Munich recorded 18 shots four of which were on target. They enjoyed 80 percent of the ball possession which could not change the outcome of the match.

After the 2-1 defeat, Bayern’s coach, Julian Nagelsmann said he felt disappointed and admitted that his team made mistakes with possessions.

“It was not an undeserved win for Augsburg,” Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann said. “I am disappointed and for the first time as Bayern coach really frustrated.

“We did not use the large spaces we had in the first half. We made mistakes with possession. We had a numerical advantage in midfield but did not use it. We did not go over the wings when we also could.”

The 2-1 defeat did not affect Bayern Munich’s current rank on the Bundesliga table. They are still occupying the top spot with 28 points in 12 games, four points above second-placed Borussia Dortmund that still have a game in hand.
