Bayern’s victory over Augsburg advances them to the Q’final



With a 5-2 comeback victory over Bavarian neighbors Augsburg, Bayern Munich reached the last 16 of the German Cup for the first time in three seasons.
After suffering a 1-0 defeat at Augsburg in the Bundesliga in mid-September, Bayern returned to the site of their only defeat in all competitions thus far this season.
After nine minutes, Danish left back Mads Pedersen gave Augsburg a 1-0 lead, giving the impression that Bayern, the 20-time winners of the German Cup, might be eliminated in the second round for the third year in a row.
After 27 minutes, former Paris Saint-Germain striker Eric Maxim Chupo-Moting scored an equalizer to calm Bayern’s nerves and keep the score at 1-1 going into the break.
A minute after the break, Sadio Mane had a chance to give Bayern the lead, but he dragged the ball wide of the goal.
Joshua Kimmich, a midfielder, finally gave Bayern the lead early in the second half with the home crowd in full voice and the pressure building.
Chupo-Moting scored again just a few minutes later, and Bayern’s teen sensation Jamal Musiala scored a fourth with 10 minutes left, despite Munich’s French defender Dayot Upamecano scoring an own goal late on.
Bayern advanced to the next round thanks to a fifth goal from Canadian defender Alphonso Davies in extra time.
