Bayern Munich, the leaders of the German Football League, suffered a surprise 2-1 defeat at the Augsburg Stadium, scoring two goals in the first half to seal an unforgettable victory at the Bavarian summit on Friday.
Mass Bersen and Andre Hahn scored twice in the 23rd and 36th minutes respectively to highlight the hosts, while Robert Lewandowski reduced the deficit in the 38th minute, with Oxburg reaching their third victory in 21 league games against Bayern.
Bayern retained the lead despite losing by 28 points, but second-placed Borussia Moenchengladbach, with 24 points, could narrow the gap to four points when they host Stuttgart on Saturday.
Thomas Mல்லller played his 600th match against Bayern in all competitions, and Joshua Kimmich did not return for a week to enter isolation due to the Covit-19 after mixing with the victim, Bayern initially had the ball over 75 percent.
But Augsburg surprised its guests when Persson threw a low shot to score his first goal of the league.
Bayern, who will travel to Ukraine to face Dynamo Kiev in the Champions League next Tuesday, were unable to create chances as Oxburg scored their second goal.
Bayern lost the ball in their own half and Hahn rose above the defense, turning a superb cross from Igo into the back of the net.
Local fans’ celebrations eased two minutes after Lewandowski, the tournament’s top scorer, scored his 14th goal after Mல்லller’s pass to reduce the deficit.
But Augsburg maintained his defensive discipline after the break and seemed relaxed as he absorbed the pressure of the guests.
Bayern did not have much of a chance, but a low shot from Alfonso Davis in the 73rd minute saved Auxberg goalkeeper Rafael Zhekevich Lewandowski’s effort from very close range.
