BERLIN — Injury-riddled Augsburg ended Bayern Munich’s record 53-game unbeaten run in the Bundesliga with a 1-0 victory on Saturday.

Sascha Moelders scored in the 31st minute for Augsburg to hand Bayern its first league loss since a 2-1 defeat at home to Bayer Leverkusen on Oct. 28, 2012.

It was Augsburg’s first victory over its larger Bavarian rival after five league and three German Cup defeats, and Bayern’s third successive game without a win in all competitions since it won the Bundesliga title with seven games to spare.
