RB Leipzig vs Augsburg Prediction
The winning streak of Leipzig in the league was brought to an end the last match-day by Dortmund. The former had taken a trip to the Signal Iduna Park, and took part in a six-goal thriller, with either team chipping in with three goals apiece.
Meanwhile, Augsburg put their home status to good use, as they romped to a 3-0 win over Dusseldorf the previous game week. The home advantage, coupled with the fact that Dusseldorf are comparatively new members of the league, probably contributed to Augsburg’s win.
Home advantage has a huge potential role to play this weekend as well, considering it’s the current toppers of the Bundesliga in front of their home crowd. Leipzig, and Monchengaldbach are giving some serious competition to the Bavarians for the league title this season.
Both challengers are four points above the Munich outfit, but Leipzig arises as even more of a threat due to their incredible offensive talent. They have scored the most number of goals in the competition, and have conceded the second-fewest of all the squads in the table.
Moreover, along with Bayern, and Dortmund, they remain the only team to have touched the 40-goal mark, and are one of only three teams to limit the number of conceded goals below 20.
In addition, they have lost just twice this whole league season, and just once in front of the home crowd. The team is also on an eleven-game unbeaten run in all competitions, and had recorded eight wins in the process.
At home, they have won four of their prior five appearances, and even scored a total of 17 goals from the previous four home fixtures.
Moreover, Leipzig have lost just once against this opponent since 2013, and have conceded just once against them from the preceding four such battles. Importantly, at this venue, they hold a 100% unbeaten record in Bundesliga h2h games, and a 100% winning record disregarding a single goalless draw.
Taking into account these observations, count on the toppers Leipzig to do their best on the pitch to secure another win.
However, do note that Augsburg are in form as well. They are on an unbeaten run of seven match-ups, of which six were wins, and have lost just once in their preceding eleven games. On the road, they are on another impressive run of six invincible match-ups, and won four of these as well.
In addition, Augsburg have scored a total of 18 goals from their last six overall matches, and scored four or more goals in three of their last six trips on the road.
Considering this stupendous form, it would be illogical to think that Leipzig would be keeping a clean sheet despite being the favorite to post the three points.
