Bayer Leverkusen vs Augsburg Tips and Prediction
Leverkusen has not had the finest start to the season after easily securing a top-four berth the previous year.
In the first round of the DFB-Pokal, Gerardo Seoane’s team was trounced by third-tier team SV Elversberg. Last weekend, they were narrowly defeated away at Borussia Dortmund.
To be fair to Die Werkself, they were really unlucky to lose a game in which they arguably had more promising scoring opportunities. After Karim Adeyemi’s attempt in the 10th minute, Marco Reus scrambled the ball over the goal, but Patrik Schick would have left the field cursing himself after being twice denied by Gregor Kobel from close range.
To make matters worse for Seoane and his club, starting goalkeeper Lukas Hradecky was sent off in stoppage time for handling the ball outside of his penalty area and obstructing a clear chance to score.
In conclusion, it was a poor day at the office for Dortmund’s result, but Leverkusen’s performance provided plenty of motivation for their upcoming, highly winnable home encounter against Augsburg.
After flirting with relegation in each of the previous four seasons, Augsburg’s 4-0 hammering at the hands of Freiburg last weekend will not have allayed fans’ concerns that this season could be another difficult, protracted one.
Leverkusen can only be expected to win easily at home, especially with a few attacking adjustments that are sure to give them a lift.
