Augsburg vs RB Leipzig
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Wednesday, 15 December 2021
Kick-off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: WWK Arena.

RB Leipzig are heavy favorites here, but we will remind you that they are still winless on the road this season. Leipzig drew three and lost four of seven Bundesliga outings away from home this term. This is why we just can’t see any value in backing the away win pick at the odds of 1.45.

Augsburg vs RB Leipzig Head-to-head

  • The head to head tradition is fully on RB Leipzig’s side.
  • The visitors will go into this on the back of five subsequent wins over Augsburg.
  • RB Leipzig have scored two or more goals in each of the last five meetings with Augsburg.

Augsburg vs RB Leipzig Predictions & Analysis

New head coach Domenico Tedesco got off to a phenomenal start to his reign at RB Leipzig. The Italian manager celebrated a comprehensive 4-1 victory over Borussia Monchengladbach in his first fixture in charge on RB Leipzig on Saturday afternoon at Red Bull Arena.

RB Leipzig still have a long way to go to return to contention for the top-three positions in the elite class of German football, though.

They currently sit seventh in the league table. The next opposition comes in the likes of Augsburg in a match scheduled for Wednesday evening at WWK Arena.

The hosts sit third from bottom in the league standings despite a 0-2 victory at Koln on Friday.

It was a massive result for Markus Weinzierl and his troops who are now six points above penultimate-placed Arminia Bielefeld.

Nevertheless, Augsburg still head into this tie as heavy underdogs according to the bookmakers.

Leipzig’s display against Monchengladbach at the weekend certainly has a lot to do with it, but can they repeat it here at WWK Arena?

  • They won two, drew one, and lost one of the last four league games.
  • The run includes a 2-1 victory over leaders Bayern Munich in mid-November.
  • RB Leipzig collected only three points from seven away fixtures in this term of Bundesliga.
