Leipzig – Augsburg
The leader in the Bundesliga RB Leipzig hosts Augsburg at the Red Bull Arena in a game from the 17th round of the German league.
Despite of their draw during the visit to Borussia Dortmund in the previous round, RB Leipzig remain leaders in the Bundesliga with 34 points. Borussia M’gladbach are second with the same amount of points, but having a worse goal difference than the leader.
Few days ago RB Leipzig made their 4th draw for the season. The Red Bulls didn’t have it easy, because they had to visit Borussia Dortmund at the Signal Iduna Park. The two teams made a spectacle which ended with a 3-3 draw. Timo Werner scored twice for Leipzig, while the substitute Patrick Schick saved the point for the visitors with a third goal in the 77th minute.
Alongside Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig are the team with the fewest amount of losses since the start of the season – just two. Since his arrival from Hoffenheim the manager Julian Nagelsmann is doing a great work in Leipzig.
Augsburg are another team in form. They are 10th in the standings with 23 points, but just look at their current shape – four wins and one draw in the last five games. This is not a team which RB Leipzig will have it easy to beat.
In the previous round Augsburg hosted Fortuna Dusseldorf at home and without much problems beat them with 3-0. Philipp Max scored a brace, while Tin Jedvaj also scored for the hosts.
Against RB Leipzig Augsburg’s manager Martin Schmidt will be without the services of the injured Felix Gotze, Raphael Framberger and Alfredh Finnbogason.
Because of both teams’ great shape we expect a really intriguing match between RB Leipzig and Augsburg on Saturday. The Red Bulls will try to keep their position as leaders, but the visitors are really prepared to fight right now.
