In the Bundesliga, Augsburg will play Bayer Leverkusen at the WWK ARENA on Friday, February 3. The hosts have had a tough season, finishing in the bottom half of the standings with half of the season left. In their most recent league match, Augsburg lost 3-1 to Freiburg, and they may feel that they deserved more from this one after creating real chances.
With 18 points from as many games, Augsburg is 14th in the standings. Leverkusen, on the other hand, have steadily risen up the points table under Xabi Alonso and are enjoying a revival. They, on the other hand, ended their winning streak last weekend when they lost to Borussia Dortmund 2-0 at home, allowing a goal in each half.
This season, the visitors are ninth in the league standings with 24 points from 18 games.
Augsburg has only won one of their last ten Bundesliga games, losing three of their last four. They may struggle here, as they have only won two league games at home this season. In the meantime, Leverkusen’s most recent result ended their five-game winning streak, so Augsburg should be won by the visitors.
Prediction: Augsburg 1-2 Bayer Leverkusen
Leverkusen has a 16-2 advantage over Augsburg in the last 25 meetings. The hosts ended a 23-game losing streak against Leverkusen with a 2-1 victory in their most recent meeting. In their last five games in this matchup, the visitors have not kept a clean sheet.
This season, Augsburg has the second-worst home record in the Bundesliga, with just eight points. Die Werkself has won only three of its seven league games this season away from home. Leverkusen has conceded the most goals in the top half of the Bundesliga this season, 30.
Ermedin Demirovic, who received his fifth caution of the season against Freiburg last time out, is out for Augsburg. Mads Pedersen could move further forward, with David Colina starting at left back, with wingers Ruben Vargas and Andre Hahn still out with injuries to their ankles and knees, respectively.
Since Irvin Cardona, Reece Oxford, Iago, and Tobias Strobl are all expected to stay on the treatment table, Maassen is unlikely to alter his starting XI in any other way. Leverkusen, on the other hand, will be without Charles Aranguiz and Andrey Lunev because of injuries to their calfs and backs, respectively.
Callum Hudson-Odoi and Patrik Schick, on the other hand, are unlikely to be put in danger because of their recent muscle injuries. After seeing his team appear a little too open defensively during moments of transition against Dortmund, Alonso may be thinking about changing the system. Mitchel Bakker could start at left wingback.
