FC Augsburg vs RB Leipzig Prediction & Betting tips
The Saturday afternoon in the Bundesliga has a real top match with the match between FC Augsburg and RB Leipzig. Both teams are on seven points after three duels.
The fact that FC Augsburg is in the top of the rankings after three games is of course a bigger surprise than RB Leipzig’s high ranking. For Augsburg, the first season goal for many years has been: not to be relegated. Everything that comes on top of that is a bonus. In that respect, the seven points are a good basis for achieving enforcement. Two weeks ago, coach Heiko Herrlich’s team lost points for the first time this season. On a visit to VfL Wolfsburg, Die Fuggerstädter left the field with a 0-0 draw.
The draw at Wolfsburg was also the maximum achievable for Augsburg in this match. The new keeper – Rafal Giekiwicz – kept his team going several times with a few strong saves. His donning has so far been a direct hit. The goalkeeper can probably start again on Saturday against a top opponent. “We know we have a tough game ahead,” midfielder Andre Hahn said this week about Saturday’s game. “But we’re working on a plan, and we hope that plan works on Saturday.”
RB Leipzig also has seven points after three matches, but based on the better goal difference compared to Augsburg, the team from Saxony is currently the leader in the Bundesliga. Two weeks ago, Leipzig delivered a particularly strong match. Julian Nagelsmann’s club faced Schalke 04 in a home game. From the start, Leipzig made it clear how the relations were. RBL was far too strong for the visitors from Gelsenkirchen and created a chance for chance. Of these, four were eventually cashed in, allowing Leipzig to add a simple, large 4-0 win.
For Nagelsmann it was exciting again this week how all his internationals would return to the club after the international period. Not much damage appears to have been taken by the Leipzig players. In fact, Nagelsmann has a wider selection on Saturday than in the first weeks of the season. The infirmary is much less crowded, and Justin Kluivert is also present for the first time. Nagelsmann indicated that he had high expectations for the winger, although the AS Roma mercenary will probably not yet be in the starting eleven.
