Augsburg 0-1 Bayern: Berisha goal stun Bundesliga Champions as awful form continues

Mergim Berisha scored the only goal of the game as Augsburg upset Bayern Munich 1-0 to win the Bavarian derby.

Coming into the match with three successive Bundesliga draws, Bayern were under pressure and this was intensified by the intensity applied by the home side who refused to allow the six-time European champions to get into their stride.

Florian Niederlechner threatened early on as the visitors defence looked shaky and Rafal Giekiewicz was in fine form at the other end, brilliantly denying Leroy Sane with his feet in either half.

The decisive moment came midway through the second half when a long free-kick was deflected by the thigh of Iago into the path of Berisha and he calmly slid home the game’s only goal.

This is Augsburg’s second straight victory over Bayern after a 2-1 victory last year.
