Bayer Leverkusen vs Augsburg Prediction & Betting tips
In football, you have to get the points when it’s running. Bad phases come back then by themselves. What sounds like an old proverb is true. This has to be experienced by FC Augsburg in the Bundesliga. The Swabians have at the beginning of the season despite several good performances points down. 2: 3 against Bremen, 3: 4 in Dortmund, 2: 2 against Nuremberg, 1: 2 in Mainz – alone in these four games there would have been a good and like ten points. These lost counters are now mourned afterwards. At the latest after the 0-1 defeat last weekend, the relegation battle broke out in the Fuggerstadt and a sense of achievement on the coming match day would be incredibly important. However, the opponent Leverkusen needs the victory urgently. The Werkself are lagging behind their own expectations and want to bring back the lost points from the Monday match in Nürnberg (1-1). There is therefore plenty of suspense in the run-up to this game and we have a special tip for the duel between Leverkusen and Augsburg. We are convinced that both teams will score at least one goal, so the BTS selection is our favorite for betting. The match will kick off on Saturday afternoon at 14:30.
Bayer Leverkusen started the new season with great expectations for the Champions League after their narrowly missed qualification. However, the team of Heiko Herrlich simply does not manage to bring consistency into their own performance. Glittering appearances like the 6: 2 in Bremen or the 5: 0 in Gladbach alternate with weak performances like last in Nuremberg in regularity. Above all, the prominent offensive with Leon Bailey, Karim Bellarabi, Kai Havertz, Kevin Volland and Julian Brandt is actually one of the best that the league has to offer. But Bayer just does not manage to get the horsepower on the road or the lawn. So coach Heiko Herrlich is also under pressure for weeks and his coaching post could wobble, if there is not one or the other sense of achievement until the winter break. The next chance will be on Saturday against the FCA. Between Leverkusen and Augsburg, the odds imply a favorite role for the home side.
Since assuming office two years ago, Manuel Baum has done a great job at FC Augsburg and not only kept the Swabians in the Bundesliga, but also saved them from more serious relegation worries. Currently, the coach is in one of his hardest phases and for weeks the football god seems to be no longer on the side of the Fugger city. The achievements of the FCA are not even the problem. However, the good performances are not reflected in the points account. The 0: 1 on last matchday in Stuttgart was another prime example of this. Defensively you concede too easily goals, in attack it is difficult to use your own chances. Scorer Alfred Finnbogason is missing in every nook and corner. His comeback is eagerly awaited by all fans. An advantage for the guests could be to play in Leverkusen as an underdog. The pressure on the shoulders of Leverkusen and Augsburg can act more liberated. In these games, the FCA has always been the strongest.
