RB Leipzig is welcoming FC Augsburg to Red Bull Arena in round 21 in the German Bundesliga.
Leipzig is on a 3-game winning streak during which they scored 8 goals while conceding 0 goals. With 41 points, Leipzig is in second place in the Bundesliga standings, and they are big 7 points away from the top, but If they can keep winning, nothing is impossible. Leipzig is the best defensive team in Germany with 17 conceded goals, while they have been solid with 35 scored goals so far. In their last Bundesliga game, Leipzig was playing against Schalke on the road, and they were the dominant team with 64% of ball possession, 10 shots on goal, 7 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and a decent 83% of the correct passes. With one scored goal in the first half and 2 more scored goals in the second half, Leipzig has won this match 0-3. Sabitzer, Poulsen, Forsberg, and Angelino have each scored 4 goals so far, while Angelino also added 6 assists. Leipzig is getting ready for their Champions League game against Liverpool next week, and they have a good chance of getting on top in this matchup, but Leipzig desperately needs a striker that can score 20+ goals per season.
Augsburg occasionally wins a game, but they have lost their last 2 while winning only 1 of their last 6 games while losing 5 games. During this stretch, Augsburg has scored only 4 goals while conceding 13 goals. Only thanks to their good start of the season are Augsburg outside the relegation zone right now, in 13th place with 22 points, but they don’t have a lot of wiggle room, and Augsburg must win some points soon. Augsburg is not an overly offensive team, and they have scored only 20 goals so far while conceding 32 goals, which isn’t that bad, to be honest. In their last Bundesliga game, Augsburg was playing against Wolfsburg at home, and they have had 45% of ball possession, 1 shot on goal, 7 corner kicks, 0 big chances created, and 74% of the correct passes. It wasn’t a particularly good game for Augsburg, and they ended up losing this match 0-2. Hahn and Caligiuri have each scored 4 goals for Augsburg, while Vargas added 3 goals. Moravek is the only injured player for Augsburg right now, while Iago is still questionable. Augsburg’s main focus this season is to secure their Bundesliga spot, and I have to say, Augsburg is not doing a good job with that.
Augsburg hasn’t won any of their last 5 games against Leipzig, while Leipzig has lost only 1 home game so far this season. Leipzig is in much better form, and they are a much better team despite needing a world-class striker. I know that Leipzig is playing in the Champions League next week, but I will still take them here because they are hunting for Bayern in Bundesliga.
