The home side started very brightly and several of their players were finding space in behind the makeshift Bayern backline, but there were no chances early on.
Then with the best piece of football of the half, Augsburg created a glorious opening. Paul Verhaegh spread the ball to Alexander Esswein, who in turn picked out the open Halil Altintop, but his free header was tipped over by Manuel Neuer.
Five minutes later the hosts were deservedly ahead. Daniel Baier won the ball in midfield, drove forward and found Molders, who finished really well into the top corner beyond Neuer.
