Both Augsburg and Bayer Leverkusen come into this Friday night fixture in the Bundesliga looking to get back to winning ways. Leverkusen will be favoured to achieve that target, and they will be searching for a fifth win in six games at Augsburg Arena.
There will be a fascinating clash in the Bundesliga on Friday evening, as Bayer Leverkusen and Augsburg both look to get back to winning ways. Leverkusen has been in solid form since the arrival of Xabi Alonso, and that is evident in the fact that they have won four of their last five. Still, they remain outside of the European places by a wide margin, as they are seven points adrift of sixth spot.
Alonso will be hoping for a response from his team on Friday, as they were beaten 2-0 by Borussia Dortmund in their most recent fixture. Goals at key parts of the game took the contest away from Leverkusen, but they did attempt a late comeback as they registered six shots on target. That was four more than Dortmund managed in 90 minutes.
There is likely to be tension at the Augsburg Arena this weekend, as the hosts will be nervously looking over their shoulders. They are just two points clear of the relegation spots coming into this fixture, and they have lost three of their previous four games in the Bundesliga.
Their most recent loss was on the road against Freiburg last weekend. They eventually fell to a 3-1 loss in that fixture. Mergim Berisha scored an equaliser from the spot after 29 minutes, but they allowed Freiburg to restore their lead just under a minute later.
Augsburg vs Bayer Leverkusen Head to Head
Augsburg claimed victory in the previous meeting between the sides, scoring a 2-1 success at BayArena. However, that was just their first victory in 23 attempts against Leverkusen. Leverkusen has also won seven of the previous eleven games between the sides in Augsburg.
Augsburg vs Bayer Leverkusen Prediction
Leverkusen boasts an excellent record in the recent meetings between these sides. That bodes well for their chances this weekend. We expect the traveling side to win the points, and we could see them doing that by a 2-1 scoreline.
