Bayern Munich

after three straight draw in the

Bundesliga

suffered their first defeat of the season on Saturday against

Augsburg

.

Mergim Berisha scored the only goal of the match in the 59th minute. This is the longest period that Bayern has gone without a win in the league since the 2001-02 season.

Nagelsmann after the game said they were the better team and should still have won the game.

"Congratulations to Augsburg and Enrico for their victory against us,"

he said.

"If I look at the statistics I think we should win that game, if we properly defend that free-kick [that led to the goal].

"It was difficult to break them down after it went to 1-0.”

Sadio Mane had only had one shot at goal in this match while even Manuel Neuer had two shots but Naggelsman refused to criticize his new signing.

"I won't be talking about individual players here, I will speak to them directly,"

Nagelsmann said.

"There's always a difference between what I tell you and what I tell the team.”

Bayern's record streak of 87 Bundesliga games with at least one goal came to end in this match against Augsburg and Nagelsmann was asked in the post-match press conference whether Bayern is missing Robert Lewandowski.

Nagelsmann quipped:

"What will you do if I say 'yes' or if I say 'no'? We have the classic nine with [Eric Maxim] Choupo [Moting] and we subbed him in today.

"It doesn't matter what I say now. If I say 'no' you’ll say I don't see the problem, if I say 'yes' you’ll say we're missing Lewandowski.

"I'm thinking about all things. About the situation, about myself, about everything.”

Augsburg manager Enrico Maassen told reporters that his team won this match because they taking risks.

"Thanks to Julian [for his congratulations],"

Maassen said.

"I'm very pleased with how my team played.

"We were willing to take risks, I told the team we could defend and maybe lose 1-0 or 2-0, or we could play high-risk. We could concede more goals, but we'd also have a chance to win, and you have to attack if you want to try and beat them, so we ran after plenty of balls.

"We gave away a lot of chances, but [goalkeeper Rafal] Gikiewicz was tremendous."
