Augsburg – Fuggerstadt firing blanks?

In Bundesliga history, no team has played a specific opponent more often without registering a single victory than Augsburg against Bayer Leverkusen, with the former winless across all twenty meetings in the competition (D7 L13). This includes losing three of the past five to be held at their WWK Arena, where Saturday’s hosts are coming off their biggest home defeat in the league for more than two years.

Having begun in ignominious fashion, thrashed 4-0 on their own patch by Hoffenheim, Augsburg would at least improve from a defensive standpoint in their very next outing after holding Eintracht Frankfurt to their first goalless home draw since April 2019. Yet there has been no such improvement offensively, with no team from Germany’s top tier getting off fewer shots (11) through the first two matchdays.

This apparent lack of creativity has led to Markus Weinzierl overseeing successive blanks, in this his second stint at the club as manager. They are the only Bundesliga outfit still to find the back of the opposing net. Last week saw them attempt a measly four shots – three fewer than any side has managed in a single game this season – to claim an extremely fortuitous point (xG: FRA 1.48- 0.19 AUG).


Leverkusen Win To Nil



Bayer Leverkusen – Still with plenty to prove on their travels?

Across the past five seasons, only in 2019-20 has Die Werkself had more points after the first two matchdays than they do now (4). After trading early goals to earn a 1-1 draw against Union Berlin in the capital, Leverkusen would put on a scoring clinic in a 4-0 win at BayArena over Monchengladbach – a last 16 participant in last season’s Champions League – to record their biggest Bundesliga victory of 2021.

With only two sides enjoying a stronger start to the new campaign, and with neither in action until the Sunday, it is opportunity knocks for new Leverkusen head coach Gerardo Seoane and his charges. Three points inside the WWK Arena, a ground which has served them well over the years having won on six of ten prior visits in the league (D4), would see Leverkusen climb provisionally into first place.

This is far easier said than done, however. For this is a team which has tended to do its best work on home turf. If that 4-0 thrashing of Gladbach was impressive, it is worth noting Die Werkself is currently on an 11-game streak (W1 D4 L6) since last notching more than one goal in an away league game. Moreover, they head to struggling Augsburg having failed to win any of their last six on the road (D3 L3).

FC Augsburg Vs Bayer Leverkusen Betting Advice

With one point from a possible six accrued so far and not a single goal scored, FC Augsburg have done nothing to dispel theories they could be in for a long season battling the threat of relegation. The club finished three points clear of danger last time around but won only once across the final seven rounds – a 2-0 success at home to a Werder Bremen side that were subsequently demoted to Bundesliga 2.


FC Augsburg Vs Bayer Leverkusen – Key Facts:

  • This will be the 21st staging of this fixture in the Bundesliga. FC Augsburg are still seeking their first ever win, accruing just seven of a possible 60 points (D7 L13).
  • Both league encounters between the sides last season produced both teams scoring, however only one of the preceding five league meetings saw both teams find the net.
  • Augsburg are the only Bundesliga team yet to score in 2021-22, with their total of 11 shots the lowest in the division. Leverkusen have only conceded one goal so far.


It has been a much more encouraging start from Leverkusen (W1 D1), conceding only one goal thus far. However, their poor travelling tendencies has to be of major concern. It is one win from the last eleven with just the five scored. So with Augsburg goalless so far but boasting a commendable record at home, losing just two of the last seven at WWK Arena, it may not be the Leverkusen whitewash some are anticipating.
