Bayern Munich stretched their lead atop the Bundesliga table to 11 points with a 2-0 victory over Augsburg in the Bavarian Derby.
Augsburg pushed into the Bayern half in the first half showing no fear, but it allowed the visitors more space in the attack. Mario Mandzukic had the first real opportunity of the match, but Mohamed Amsif made a great save to keep him out. Bayern took the lead on a penalty just before halftime after Gibril Sankoh was judged to have handled the ball in the area. Thomas Müller stepped up and converted the penalty for the 1-0 lead.
Mario Gomez came on at the hour mark and scored within minutes. Franck Ribery played a through ball to Gomez, and the forward shot past Amsif and sealed the victory. The two sides will meet again in 10 days in the DFB Pokal.
The victory moves Bayern to 41 points and 11 points clear at the top of the table ahead of Bayer Leverkusen who play tomorrow. Augsburg remain in 17th place on 8 points.
