Bayer Leverkusen vs Augsburg
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 31 March 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: BayArena (Leverkusen).

Die Werkself have shockingly dropped the ball away at the rock-bottomed Koln to drop out of the top four in the Bundesliga standings. To make things worse, the team will be without an important first team forward Lucas Alario who was sent off just after the half hour mark in the clash at RheinEnergieStadion.

Heiko Herrlich will thus be desperate to see his men clinch a three-pointer here against Augsburg to break back into the top four in the Bundesliga ladder. Bayer have already had some unexpected slip-ups in front of their fans at BayArena and they just can’t afford one this Saturday. The good news for Herrlich is that his top scorer Kevin Volland (10 goals so far in the season) could be back in the squad after skipping the trip to Koln.

Additionally, Augsburg will once again be without their talisman Alfred Finnbogason who is still sidelined due to injury. The team led by Manuel Baum has been in the contest for European spots just weeks ago, but the streak of three losses, a draw and a win in last five games have significantly halted their push for continental competitions. Fuggerstadter have revealed plenty of holes at the back in the round before the international break when they have shipped as many as three goals in the home loss to Werder Bremen.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Augsburg: Head-to-head

The head to head stats entirely favour Bayer Leverkusen who have won 9 and lost only 1 of 15 meetings with Augsburg.

Interestingly, five of last six H2H clashes between the two teams saw no winner (including the 1-1 draw from early November last year at WWK Arena).

Both teams have scored in five of last six H2H games.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Augsburg: Prediction

The host just can’t allow a mistake here and we’ll back them to see off the struggling opposition as a banker pick at the odds of 1.44.

We do expect Leverkusen to exploit Augsburg’s defensive holes to the max and net there or more goals without too many problems.
