Bayern Munich fall to the fourth position after a shock defeat to Mainz 05
The defeat means the Bavarians are on a win-less run in their last four games and drop to fourth place.
Prior to the game, the six-time European champions were under severe pressure and this was escalated by the ferocity applied by an Augsburg team who refused to allow Julian Nagelsmann's team to get into their stride.
