Augsburg vs Bayer Leverkusen Match Preview
Augsburg have escaped the immediate danger zone in Bundesliga with an upset in Frankfurt (1-3) and a more convincing win over Stuttgart (6-0) in their last two outings, now hosting Bayer Leverkusen in hope they can show off once again and build towards the mid-table.
Fuggerstadter will be without Alfred Finnbogason in the final third, as their star man suffered a calf injury at Eintracht, but they’ve seen goals coming from all directions and Marco Richter leading the line to nine goals on those two occasions. We should now see them just as motivated to deny the visitors a ticket to the top 6.
Bayer Leverkusen sit just outside and lag two points behind 6th placed Hoffenheim after 30 games played, having beat Stuttgart (0-1) and Nurnberg (0-2) in two narrow occasions midway through April. However, they’ve only bounced back from a very troubled spell and Peter Bosz’ men have a lot yet to prove.
Die Werkself have seen thriller losses to Bremen (1-3), Hoffenheim (4-1), and Leipzig (2-4) beforehand and the fans will now hope they’ve put such inconsistencies at the back behind them. Still, this promises another exciting clash at WWK Arena on Friday evening.
We will now stick our necks out for Bayer Leverkusen to turn such a clash their way and we’ll go for an Away win and a Yes on Both teams to score, which comes at 15/8 with bet365 and looks like more than just a lively longshot.
With that in mind, it’s easy to make a case for a high-scoring clash and we’ll also back it with Over 2.5 Goals FT at 8/15 with bet365, having seen numbers of goals between the sides lately and simply hoping for more of the same from the in-form attacking lines on both ends.
