RB Leipzig vs Augsburg
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Friday, 12 February 2021
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Red Bull Arena.
After a period of lull, the Red Bulls appear to be back on track. They are once against winning games handsomely, and in the process are scoring goals in plenty.
They are currently placed second in the table, and it seems they have put a lock on that position till the end of the season. If only the unbeatable Bayern were not in the league, they easily could have gone after the Bundesliga crown.
Anyhow, Julian Nagelsmann’s men are determined to establish themselves as the second best team in Germany at the moment, raising a huge challenge to Borussia Dortmund.
This weekend, they are at home, and are pitted against the struggling Fuggerstadter, who are conceding goals in alarming numbers lately.
Moreover, they have also been a disaster on the road in the past several weeks, and most importantly, they have an inferior h2h record against this foe over the years.
Likely, expect Leipzig to deliver another commendable performance this Friday at their home.
Leipzig vs Augsburg: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse fixture had taken place just one month back, and then the Red Bulls won 0-3 on the road.
- They are on a four-fixture winning run.
- They are on an eight-game unbeaten streak.
- The combined scorecard for the last five encounters is 12-3, in favor of them.
- At this venue, the hosts have won all but one match-up since 2016.
Leipzig vs Augsburg Prediction
Nagelsmann’s men had recorded a 0-3 win on the road the last match-day, against Schalke. In the meantime, Heiko Herrlich’s men lost 0-2 at home against Wolfsburg.
Going on, the Red Bulls are on a three-fixture winning run, and had recorded a combined scorecard of 8-0 in the process.
They had also won nine of their former thirteen overall games, and had recorded wins in 12 of their last 14 appearances at home.
On the other hand, their counterparts had lost five of their preceding six match-ups, and they had also conceded two or more goals in four of these fixtures. Do also note that they have won just twice in their past nine road trips as well.
And most importantly, Nagelsmann’s men have a stupendous h2h record against this rival over the years, and have scored in frightening numbers during the while.
As such, expect Leipzig to post the three points on the board this Friday.
