RB Leipzig vs Augsburg Match Preview
RB Leipzig host Augsburg for their Matchday 17 clash on Saturday afternoon, just days after seeing a thriller 3-3 draw at Borussia Dortmund, where they fell behind in the first half but bounced in the second with a brace from Timo Werner as well as a 77’ equalizer from Patrick Schick.
Red Bulls thus capitalized on defensive slip-ups on the rivals’ end and snatched an important point at Signal Iduna Park, extending an 11-match unbeaten streak and keeping hold of the top spot. They have bagged four wins and a draw in five home outings along the way and we’ll now surely see them in a great mood once again.
Augsburg have a lot to be happy about lately too and we’ve seen them outclass Fortuna Dusseldorf (3-0) in front of the home fans on Tuesday, catching up with the top 6 and sitting 10th after 16 games played – as they earned 16 of their 23 points total in the last six Bundesliga outings.
Fuggerstadter beat Mainz (2-1) and Hoffenheim (2-4) in December too and enjoy a great spell in the final third, led by Florian Niederlechner who scored in three consecutive appearances before failing to find the net in comfortable wins over Hoffenheim (2-4) and Fortuna (3-0) where Philipp Max stepped up with four goals.
They will now hope to build on such performances and while we don’t see them snatching the points, we feel the visitors will be a very tough side to outgun. We’ll thus back RB Leipzig to turn a thriller their way and go for a Home win and a Yes on Both teams to score, which combines to an enticing 7/5 with BetVictor.
We have seen numbers of goals from both sides lately and we thus hope for more of the same. With that in mind, we’re going for Over 3.5 Goals FT at 10/11 with bet365 and hoping for an exciting occasion at Red Bull Arena once again.
