Augsburg vs. Bayer Leverkusen Betting Tips
Bayer Leverkusen travel to Augsburg for their Matchday 21 clash building towards the top of the table on a convincing win over Eintracht Frankfurt (3-0) last week. While they have been struggling for consistency on the road, which has kept them from challenging the top 6 so far, with the confidence taken from it, we do feel they can bag the points here, backing them to win at 13/10 with BetVictor
Bayer will be well-aware points at WWK Arena could take them well within reach of the European qualifying spots, and they want to lift their spirits further ahead of the Champions League home clash against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday. While Augsburg will by no means be a sitting duck, proving to be a difficult rival for many in front of the home fans, we do feel Roger Schmidt’s men have what it takes to outclass them this time around.
Fuggerstadter have indeed picked up their home form since mid-November, and they’ve suffered just one loss there since! They’ve earned wins over Borussia M’gladbach (1-0) and Werder Bremen (3-2), also holding Hertha (0-0) and Eintracht Frankfurt (1-1) to draws in the process. Nonetheless, they’ve suffered a disappointing loss to Mainz 05 in their last outing (2-0) and seeing them struggle in the final third will not do wonders for the side morale.
The visitors, on the other hand, will come into the match strong and motivated to make the away day count. However, they haven’t been in a perfect goalscoring form on the road themselves (bagging just four goals in their last five away games across competitions). This thus looks a low-scoring contest in the making and we’ll go for Under 2.5 goals FT comes at 4/6 with William Hill.
Augsburg vs. Bayer Leverkusen Stats
The teams have met once this season and we’ve seen them share the spoils in a goalless draw at BayArena back in September! While we have seen some thrillers, they have earned just a point each in all of their last four head-to-head encounters.
We do believe Bayer will now be able to snatch the points and we’ll back a narrow 1-0 away win, which can be backed at a good-looking 6/1 with bet365
