Augsburg – Bayer Leverkusen : Preview & Prediction
Augsburg, 13th, is close to the relegation zone, only 4 points ahead at the dawn of this 22nd Bundesliga matchday. The teammates of Vargas (3 goals) must take points in front of a team from Bayer Leverkusen which has not had a big influence for a month. Augsburg has just won a friendly against Wurzburger Kickers (3-1) this February 15 and ends a black series of 3 defeats in a row in the league in Dortmund (3-1), against Wolfsburg (0-2) and in Leipzig (2-1). Bayer Leverkusen, 5th, continues the matches and its last outing ended in a defeat in Switzerland against the Young Boys of Bern (4-3) in the Europa League. A result which confirms the difficulties of the men of Bosz who had been hung at home by Mainz (2-2) on the last day of the championship. Leverkusen will move to the WWK Arena without Arias, Baumgartlinger, Bellarabi, Bender, Hradecky, Paulinho and Weiser, all injured.
Bayer Leverkusen have won only once in their last 6 outings.
Bayer Leverkusen are on 5 straight away defeats, Bundesliga, German Cup and Europa League included.
Bayer Leverkusen played this Thursday night and could draw physically.
Bayer Leverkusen wins 1 out of 2 away games (5 wins in 10 trips).
Augsburg, 13th, want to breathe new life into the relegation zone (4 points ahead).
Not at all successful away from home in their last outings, Bayer Leverkusen could once again suffer away from BayArena, especially since Thursday’s European match could weigh on visitors’ legs. Augsburg can hope to make a positive result.
