Leverkusen – Die Werkself can consolidate third place with three points?

Despite seemingly their best efforts to throw away two points, Leverkusen did ultimately emerge from last week’s Rhine derby as the victors with a 2-1 scoreline away to Monchengladbach. It was a scoreline which only scratched the surface of the story inside Borussia-Park. The visitors racking up a hatful of scoring chances – the best of them two penalties that were saved – but somehow only scraping a win.

That marked the end of a four-game drought for Gerardo Seoane’s men, who return to BayArena seeking their first win as hosts since the 7-1 annihilation of Greuther Furth in early December. Third place Die Werkself have only collected maximum points from two of their past six Bundesliga home games though (D2 L2), something that clearly has to change if they are to reduce the arrears on the top two.

Key Stat: Bayer Leverkusen are in a rich vein of scoring form, banging in 19 across their last seven league games (2.71 per game) having netted multiple times in all but one of these contests.


Both Teams to Score 2 or More Goals



Augsburg – Edging towards trouble after one win in seven?

For a third time this Bundesliga season, Augsburg approach a fixture having not won any of their previous four (D3 L1). This after a spirited performance on Matchday 19 saw them frustrate a Frankfurt team in contention for European football next term, holding Die Adler to a 1-1 draw. It continued their outstanding form at the WWK Arena, which remains in sharp contrast to that of when they are asked to travel.

Only three teams have accrued less away points at this stage than Augsburg, who are now only a point clear of the relegation places. With one win from ten attempts (D4 L5) and a 0.7 points-per-game ratio ranking them among the poorest visiting teams in Germany’s top tier. None of which is conducive for a successful outcome on Saturday, facing opponents they have not beaten in their past 21 attempts (D7 L14).

Key Stat: Although a return of six goals from ten away league games this season is a very poor return, it is only two blanks in their last seven away outings. Finding the net at both Dortmund and Hoffenheim, sides which sandwich Leverkusen in second and fourth respectively.

Bayer Leverkusen Vs Augsburg Betting Advice

It is sometimes said that some teams are beaten well before they even step foot on to the pitch, and this could well be true of Augsburg who are still searching for their maiden Bundesliga victory over Leverkusen. It is a rotten sequence spanning 21 renewals of a fixture Leverkusen have won six of the last seven times. Romping to a 4-1 victory when these sides met on Matchday 3 of this campaign.


Bayer Leverkusen Vs Augsburg – Key Facts:

  • This will be the 22nd Bundesliga meeting staged between the clubs, with Augsburg going all 21 previous encounters without registering a single victory (D7 L14).
  • There have been three or more goals in all of Leverkusen’s last seven Bundesliga matches, but just one of Augsburg’s past five.
  • However, there has been three occasions at the BayArena this season where both teams scored at least twice, including the past two encounters at this ground (2-2 vs Hoffenheim and Union Berlin).


Rarely in football is anything a formality though. Leverkusen aren’t in the best of form, with one win in five and only two in six as hosts, while only five teams are leaking more goals this term than their 31 in 19 matches. They are a real handful in attack, however, which spells trouble for an Augsburg side which has already conceded 30 times. So there should be goals, with Leverkusen expected to plunder most of them.
