Augsburg vs RB Leipzig
Date: Saturday, 17 October 2020
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: WWK Arena.
After their inspirational campaign the last season, which saw them make a deep run into the Champions League, the Red Bulls and their young manager seem to have picked up things from exactly where they left off.
They have raced to the top of the table with a 100% unbeaten record, and have been scoring goals for fun in the process.
They now have an opportunity to extend their lead at the top, as they are pitted against the second-placed Fuggetstadter.
Heiko Herrlich’s men also have had an unbeaten run so far, and they even defeated Dortmund in their second game in the campaign.
However, they are the underdog here, considering how they have been dominated in the recent past in h2h clashes, by this opponent. In fact, in the past seven years, they have recorded a total of one h2h win against this opponent.
Likely, expect Leipzig to be the better team on the pitch this weekend.
Augsburg vs Leipzig: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last time these two locked horns was three months back, and then Julien Nagelsmann’s men recorded a 1-2 win on the road.
- They had also registered a 3-1 victory at home in the clash before that.
- It’s been three years since they have lost against this opponent.
- The hosts have secured a total of one win this whole decade at this stadium.
Augsburg vs Leipzig: Prediction
Fuggerstadter were held to a 0-0 draw on the road the last match-day, by Wolfsburg. In the meantime, the Red Bulls recorded a 4-0 win at home the past game week, against Schalke.
Going on, Nagelsmann’s men have been on a roll for over the past several months. They were simply superb in the recently-concluded UCL, and now they have continued that form in the Bundesliga as well.
As of now, they are the toppers of the competition, and they also had remained unbeaten in 21 of their preceding 23 overall fixtures. These two losses had come against Dormund and PSG – two of the best teams in the world.
Furthermore, they are also on a ten-match unbeaten run on the road, and they even had won five of the former six away trips. In the process, they had also scored a total of 22 goals from their previous nine fixtures away from home.
On top of all that, they have also been dominant in h2h meetings over the past decade. They even had defeated this same opponent with a 1-2 scorecard just three months back.
As such, expect Leipzig to be the victor this Saturday.
