Augsburg - Bayer Leverkusen Prediction and Analysis

Augsburg hosts Bayer Leverkusen in the first match of the new Bundesliga round.

The match is important for each of the rivals in it as they will be chasing a must win in fulfillment of their goals.

The hosts are 2 points closer to the relegation zone and are starting to feel the need for points.

While the Aspirins are 8 points behind the Europa zone after losing to Borussia Dortmund last time out.

In this regard, they should not let go of winning in matches like today.

Puck and Leverkusen are playing very successfully away to Augsburg (9-4-0 in 13 official visits here).

Given that fact, I trust them to win today.

But I came across a very interesting football statistic .

Namely – 7 of Augsburg's 10 defeats in the Bundesliga this season have followed a draw in the first half .

So my prediction is: X/2 for First Half/Final Score.

Augsburg - statistics and info

The Augsburg team recorded 7 consecutive finishes in the bottom half of the Bundesliga before the current campaign.

But he was always lucky to avoid relegation.

This year, however, fans have legitimate concerns about their favorite team's elite status.

As a 1-3 loss away to Freiburg last round left them dangerously close to the bottom three in the table.

Although they did not play badly in the match and even scored a goal before the break.

But despite this, they remained with the same asset they had at this stage of the season (18 rounds played) and in the 2021/22 season.

The return of 'WWK Arena' could raise hopes of pushing back the bottom three for another week.

After Augsburg won their first home game of 2023 and only their second of the season against Gladbach in the last game here.

But the team has not won back-to-back home games since April 2022.

Repeating that feat here would make history.

Because Bayer Leverkusen is the team Augsburg has faced most often at home without ever winning a single official match (4 draws and 9 losses).

Bayer Leverkusen - stats and info

The Bayer Leverkusen team has started with a bang since the resumption of the Bundesliga season.

Recording 2 straight wins in their first 2 games in 2023:

  • 3-2 against Borussia M'gladbach
  • 2-0 against Bochum

But in the next round played last week, the Aspirini suffered a 0-2 defeat at home to Dortmund.

And so they ended the successful series of 5 championship victories in a row .

While this was disappointing, manager Xabi Alonso's success so far cannot be questioned.

After he took Leverkusen out of the relegation zone and into the top half following his appointment in October.
