Augsburg vs RB Leipzig Prediction, Betting Tips and Match Preview for German Bundesliga clash on Saturday, 27 June 2020. Kick off 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET at the WWK Arena.
The Red Bulls have an opportunity to finish in the podium, but they will surely have to target the three points this weekend in order to do that.
The reason being, the fourth-placed Monchengladbach, and the fifth-placed Leverkusen are still fighting it out for the final CL spot. And Gladbach are trailing by just one point behind the Red Bulls, and it could be said with certainty that the former will be considering this match-day as a virtual final.
Meanwhile, Heiko Herrlich’s men have made it to the next edition of the Bundesliga as the final safe team. This development will allow them the luxury to be pretty relaxed this Saturday. Even if they lose, there won’t be any repercussions, and after a tiring relegation battle, they certainly deserve some rest.
As such, expect a win for Leipzig this game week.

Augsburg vs RB Leipzig Prediction
Herrlich’s men were held to a 1-1 draw on the road the last match-day, by Dusseldorf. The home team had scored the first goal of the game, only for VAR to disallow it. Later Herrlich’s men slotted in the opener, and the hosts equalized it minutes later.
In the meantime, the Bulls lost 0-2 at home against Dortmund. In what was a must-win game for the hosts, the team completely failed to perform against Der BVB. Both goals were scored by Erling Haaland.
As things stand, the Bulls are easily the favorites. They are placed third in the table, and in order to confirm this as their final position, they will have to post a win this weekend. On the other hand, Herrlich’s men have nothing else to achieve, and they surely will be relaxed.
Moreover, they managed to just hang above the relegation line by a thread. In addition, the Bulls had also won the reverse fixture, and they were unbeaten in 14 of their previous 15 overall games. On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in 11 of their preceding 13 match-ups.
Taking into account these observations, it’s deduced that Leipzig are on course to deliver a win.
