RB Leipzig – Augsburg : Preview & Prediction
Leipzig are more in the race for the title than ever, but Nagelsmann’s team must achieve a clear round at the Red Bull Arena to make up the 7 point gap on the Bavarian leader. Nkunku’s partners (3 goals) come out of 3 successes in a row at home against Union Berlin (1-0), against Bayer Leverkusen (1-0) and in front of Bochum (4-0) on February 3. The last victory in the Bundesliga, on the field of Schalke 04 (3-0) on February 6, places Leipzig on a good dynamic and the current 2nd must confirm his good pass against Augsburg which occupies the depths of the standings. The team coached by Herrlich is only 13th just 5 points from the relegation zone and this second part of the season promises to be complicated. Hahn’s partners (4 goals) scored only 3 points against Union Berlin (2-1) on January 23 at the end of the last 6 days of the championship. A very low ratio which brings Augsburg closer to the red zone !. Augsburg remains on 2 heavy defeats in Dortmund (3-1) and in front of Wolfsburg (0-2) at home last weekend and could suffer a 3rd consecutive setback against Leipzig, a favorite in places for the Champions League.
Leipzig is runner-up to Bayern Munich.
Augsburg is 13th in the Bundesliga.
Augsburg have lost 5 of their last 6 league games.
Leipzig is on an ongoing streak of 3 straight wins.
Leipzig has won the last 4 direct confrontations (3-1, 2-1, 2-0, 3-0).
Leipzig have already won Augsburg twice this season, both away, in the Bundesliga (2-0) and the German Cup (3-0). This 3rd meeting should again turn very largely in favor of the current 2nd in the championship.
