Augsburg vs RB Leipzig
Date: Saturday, 20 October 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: WWK Arena (Augsburg).
Augsburg were so unlucky to drop out the lead they had on two occasion against Borussia Dortmund two weeks ago at Signal-Iduna-Park. They eventually conceded the last-gasp goal from Paco Alcacer free kick (the Spaniard completed a hat-trick after coming on from bench in the second half) to lose 4-3 in a magnificent seven-goal thriller in the previous round.
Fuggerstadter’s defensive line will once again be on a massive test on Saturday afternoon when they play host to RB Leipzig at WWK Arena. The visitors began the season in a slower fashion, but they’ve caught the momentum of late to pick up four straight wins across competitions. Ralf Rangnick’s men were particularly brutal in the final third bagging as many as nine goals in last two victories against Rosenborg (1-3 in Europa League) and Nurnberg (6-0 in Bundesliga).
Augsburg vs RB Leipzig: Head-to-head
- Augsburg were a tricky opposition to RB Leipzig in their short head to head history.
- Fuggerstadter lead the head to head tie by a single win coming into seventh encounter with RB Leipzig.
- The Bulls are yet to pick up the victory at WWK Arena where they lost one and drew one of two games so far.
- Just two of six head to head affairs saw goals scored at both ends.
Augsburg vs RB Leipzig: Prediction
Both teams’ form promises a spectacular high-scoring thriller in this eighth round tie at WWK Arena. Augsburg bagged an impressive seven-goal tally in last two league ties against Freiburg and Borussia Dortmund. Their attacking-minded football will certainly leave plenty of space for the Bulls’ talented attacking line to strike at the other end.
We’ll go with both teams to score as a banker bet at 1.50 odds. Value-seekers will fancy the Over 3.5 goals FT bet at the odds of 2.50. All of eight official games Augsburg played so far in the season saw goals scored at both ends and there is just no reason for such trend to be stopped here against attacking-minded RB Leipzig.
