Augsburg vs RB Leipzig
German DFB Pokal
Date: Tuesday, 2 April 2019
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: WWK Arena (Augsburg).
RB Leipzig were stopped in the DFB Pokal’s second round in the previous term due to the toughest of early draws which gave them Bayern Munich as rivals. They had quite a complicated journey to make it to the quarter-final this time around as well since they had to battle it out past top flight opponents Hoffenheim and Wolfsburg en route to this tie with Augsburg.
Nonetheless, the team led by Ralf Rangnick did not concede a single goal in wins over mentioned teams and we have to see them as clear favourites to continue their cup adventures here past Augsburg. The Bulls will enter the match in the highest of spirits after a demolishing 5-0 vict0ory over Hertha BSC on Saturday. The drubbing of the Old Lady helped Rangnick’s side go three points clear off Borussia Monchengladbach in third place of the Bundesliga standings.
Augsburg vs RB Leipzig: Head-to-head
The visitors will, however, play against head to head tradition here.
Augsburg have a positive record in games against the Bulls as the hosts won three, drew three and last only two of eight ties with RB Leipzig.
Interestingly, just three goals were seen in last four H2H affairs, while there were none scored in past two encounters.
RB Leipzig have never claimed spoils at WWK Arena (1 loss and 2 draws in 3 games).
Augsburg vs RB Leipzig: Prediction
This quarter-final tie should really provide a great chance for the visitors to bring a dismal head to head trend in matches at WWK Arena to an end. They head into this as heavy form favourites, particularly if we know Fuggerstadter lost 3-0 away at penultimate-placed Nurnberg at the weekend.
The home form is Augsburg’s only hope as they can build on some strong displays in front of their fans of late. Fuggerstadter bagged at least two goals in all of past four home outings even though they’ve played the likes of Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund (a 2-1 win) in the process.
The value is strong in backing three or more goals at 1.65 odds, while braver tipsters can back RB Leipzig to win & BTTS at 3.25.
