Augsburg vs RB Leipzig Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The visitor has been unbeaten for the past seven clashes.
  • Their previous encounter gave a 0-2 away win for Leipzig.
  • Both teams have scored in three of the recent four fixtures.
  • The visitor has recorded four of the last five overall wins.

  • The host has been winless for the past four matches at home.

Augsburg vs RB Leipzig Prediction

Augsburg has had a mixed form in Bundesliga, this term falling behind the visitor in their league table. The host enjoys the ground advantage but has been winless for the past four home matches in their overall schedule.

This helps the traveling side to push for a win despite playing away from home. Besides, Leipzig is in stellar form, entering the UEFA Champions League yet again this season. The visitor has a decent form on the road.

Having lost only one of their last five outings across all major competitions, the guest will create problems for the home team’s defense in the encounter. So, the away win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters.

Furthermore, expect nothing less of a high-scoring affair when the visitor comes in hot. Since they had a clean sheet win in the last DFB Pokal outing, they will look for some early goals in the clash. The tip for over 2.5 goals will probably come in handy from the goals department.

Augsburg vs RB Leipzig Betting tips
