Augsburg vs RasenBallsport Leipzig Match Prediction

By William Hall

Augsbury host RB Leipzig at the WWK Arena this week in a game which sees two of the leagues inform teams go head to head in the Bundesliga. Augsburg come into this one having had back to back victories beating Koln at home 3-0 before edging past Eintracht Frankfurt away from home on Saturday. RB Leipzig haven't lost a game in their last four in all competitions, most recently drawing at home to Borussia M'gladbach which would have been frustrating after leading twice in the match. Read on for a full match preview complete with all our best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

When two sides are in such good form, it is sometimes difficult to be able to tell who is going to come out on top. Whenever these two teams have met, it has always been tight with both sides getting their share of wins. The two met twice last season with this exact fixture ending 2-2 and the reverse finishing 2-1 to Leipzig. I can see it being a very close again this week, and with both teams firing in the goals, it looks a real likelihood that we will see over 2.5 goals in this one. In fact, Augsburg have seen over 2.5 goals in all of their last three and Leipzig have seen it happen in two of their three Bundesliga games, in my eyes making it a cert.

RB Leipzig always make it hard for sides to beat them, closing up the back when they need to. I can see them doing a very similar job to what they have for the last couple of weeks and possibly looking at a point as a good result in the fixture. With both sides in form and looking evenly matched at this point, a draw looks a likely prospect.

Augsburg Preview

Augsburg will be pleased with how the start of the season has gone, picking up seven points from four games, sitting 7th in the league. It has been the last three games which has put them there, drawing to Borussia M'gladback before beating both Koln and Eintracht Frankfurt. It was quite an easy win in their last game, even though the scoreline makes it seem it was a close match. Augsburg got a goal in the 20th minute away to Frankfurt which settled them down. It stayed that way until the 76th minute when Caiuby made it 2-0 to the good. A goal three minutes later from the home team made it a nervy last 10 minutes, but they managed to hold on to pick up all three points. Augsbury centre-forward Alfred Finnbogason is a man to watch this season, already scoring four goals in the same number of games.

Augsburg Team News

Augsburg have a number of injuries, but the lot of them are very close to returning to action. Here is the list; Georg Teigl (back injury), Marvin Friedrich (muscle injury), Moritz Leitner (ankle injury), Raphael Framberger (knee injury), Tim Rieder (knee injury).

RasenBallsport Leipzig Preview

RB Leipzig have also had a good start to the season, sitting one place above this week's opponents on the same number of points. Leipzig have now played four games without defeat in the Bundesliga and Champions League, meaning they will be full of confidence coming into this one. Although they managed to gain a point at home to M'glabach, they will be frustrated at the fact they threw away the lead twice in the match. Red Bull Leipzig have a striker of their own who is attracting a lot of attention with Timo Wener scoring four goals in four games for the club. The small German forward makes it very hard for defences to deal with him through his raw pace and power. If he can turn it around this weekend, there is no reason why he can't be a big part of his side breaking down an inform Augsburg side.

RasenBallsport Leipzig Team News

RB Leipzig will have just two players missing for this one with Fabio Coltorti recovering from a muscle injury and Naby Keita out with a red card suspention.
