In recent years, Bayer Leverkusen has been less visible when it comes to good start to the season. For this reason, the wonder that the Werkself has made the best start in five years on the first five matchdays is limited.
Soccer Betting Tips Augsburg vs Leverkusen
Anyone familiar with coach Peter Bosz and, above all, sporting director Rudi Völler, knows that the Rhinelanders are not completely satisfied with what has been shown so far. In particular, the 0: 4 in Dortmund from two weeks ago and the home defeat in the Champions League group stage against Lokomotiv Moscow prevent a (still) pleasing interim conclusion.
As part of the sixth game day, it comes now to the clash between Augsburg and Leverkusen. According to the odds of the bookmakers are the chances of a threesome from the point of view of the “Pillendreher” pretty good. 60% implicit chances of victory underline this. In the calendar year 2019, with the exception of RB Leipzig, after all, no other Bundesliga club could win as many matches abroad as Bayer 04 did.
Of course, the endeavor in Fuggerstadt will not be easy anyway, because even the protected of coach Martin Schmidt showed last ascending form. For the first time this season, the FCA remained unbeaten in two competitive games and even defeated Eintracht Frankfurt before home crowd with 2: 1.
Nevertheless, the defensive is still the problem child of southern Swabia, which is why in our eyes between Augsburg and Leverkusen a prediction in favor of a sovereign success of the qualitatively more heavily occupied Rhinelander quite close.
Augsburg – Statistics & Current Form
In fast-paced professional business, small steps are often dismissed with far too little media attention. For the Bundesliga kicker of FC Augsburg, however, the two appearances after the international break were exactly the small steps in the right direction, which wanted to go Martin Schmidt and his coaching staff.
Only at home against Eintracht Frankfurt the first win of the season was retracted (2: 1), before a week later at the so far strongly started SC Freiburg also the first point win in the foreign jumped out (1: 1). It should be noted, however, that the Fugger City had in both matches continue to have major problems with their own defensive behavior and profited from a lack of opportunity exploitation of Eintracht or the sports club.
With eleven goals conceded after five games of FCA behind Werder Bremen, the FSV Mainz 05 and the SC Paderborn is still the fourth worst defense of the highest German league.
“With mentality, will and courage, everything is included in such a game. We want to continue our upward trend. Coming here has to be uncomfortable. We want to show that from game to game. We want to start a golden October. ” – Martin Schmidt
On all five matchdays, the Czech keeper Koubek had to grab at least once behind. It is interesting to note, however, that only four of the eleven goals scored in the first 45 minutes of a game.
In addition, the defensive of southern Swabia presented at least after hostile standard situations very secure. Similar to Bayer Leverkusen, the Schmidt-Elf conceded no goal after a dormant ball. Nonetheless, it hooks on the vote in the back four, which is currently changed to three out of four positions compared to the preseason.
Hope for a positive result on Saturday afternoon, the fact that the twelfth of the table in front of their own fans in the WWK Arena is usually combative good against it. However, if you take the second round against Frankfurt as a benchmark, you will understand why we are aiming for a clear score between Augsburg and Leverkusen.
Only Mainz 05 allowed more shots on their own housing on the first five matchdays than the team that twice unbeaten twice in the past two weekends for the first time this season. The obvious deficits in terms of speed and build-up are enough to argue our Augsburg vs. Frankfurt prediction to justify.
The loss of defense chief Jeffrey Gouweleeuw, who has returned to training during the week but still needs more units to find his strength, is particularly severe. Felix Götze, Carlos Gruezo, Marek Suchy and Noah Sarenren Bazee are also missing. Behind the use of ailing U21 Vice European Champion Marco Richter, however, is a question mark.
Expected formation of Augsburg:
↪ Koubek – Lichtsteiner, Jedvaj, Uduokhai, Max – Khedira, Baier – Hahn, Vargas – Finnbogason, Niederlechner
Last matches from Augsburg:

Leverkusen – Statistics & Current Form
After three winless games in a row, including two defeats in Dortmund (0: 4) and at home in the Champions League against Lokomotiv Moscow (1: 2), Bayer Leverkusen was in the home game against Union Berlin already under pressure this past week.
However, the team of coach Peter Bosz was able to withstand this pressure impressively and earned a completely deserved as well as sovereign 2-0 victory. With ten points after five match days and the resulting best season start in five years, the current table can be quite satisfied.
But the fact is that the Werkself are far from being all that glitters with gold. For example, the Rhinelanders are among the most ineffective teams in the Bundesliga. Just every eleventh shot on goal leads to a goal. For comparison: When coming opponent from Augsburg, there is already every seventh shot, which finds the way across the opposing goal line.
In addition, the defensive developed under the Dutch head coach, who once failed in Dortmund, to a “never-ending story”. The seven conceded goals match (together with the BVB) the worst value from the upper half of the table.
Fortunately you have to hold Bayer 04, however, that equal to four of the above-mentioned goals against those Dortmund came about. Twice (both times at home) Lukas Hradecky kept the “white vest”.
However, those who respond to negative things should not neglect the reciprocal value of the medal, because in the Rhineland, too, Peter Bosz has obviously managed to create an offensive game system that can be dangerous for any team, both nationally and internationally.
“It makes no sense to think about the games afterwards. The focus is only on Augsburg. It is an extremely important away game for us. The start of the season was right up to here. Now it’s time to move on. And everyone knows how difficult it is to play in Augsburg. ” – Sven Bender
Among other things, we think between Augsburg and Leverkusen a tip in favor of the guests for a good option.
Another pro-argument is the away strength of Leverkusen. Interestingly enough, the “Pillendreher” in the current calendar year behind RB Leipzig (ten wins) won most of the Bundesliga games in the distance (seven). In the current season designed Havertz and Co. already the encounter with a comparable opponent in Dusseldorf with 3: 1 successfully.
The experiences against the Fuggerstädter also speak for the ambitious Werkself, who actually never lost in the own Erstliga history against the FCA. In particular, Kevin Volland was last relegated to the Südschwaben. In his last four guest appearances at the WWK Arena, the former international has scored four goals.
Coach Bosz is fortunate to have a match in the Champions League at Juventus and the subsequent home game against RB Leipzig, with the only hope that Leon Bailey will be unavailable at the moment due to injury. The coach has many options and could make some changes in the starting lineup.
Expected formation of Leverkusen:
↪ Hradecky – Dragovic, Tah, Wendell – Aranguiz, Demirbay – L. Bender, Havertz, Amiri, Volland – Alario
Last matches from Leverkusen:
⚽️ 21.09.2019 – Leverkusen Vs. Union Berlin 2: 0 (Bundesliga)
⚽️ 18.09.2019 – Leverkusen Vs. Lokomotiv Moscow 1: 2 (Champions League)
⚽️ 14.09.2019 – Dortmund vs Leverkusen 4: 0 (Bundesliga)
⚽️ 31.08.2019 – Leverkusen Vs. TSG Hoffenheim 0: 0 (Bundesliga)
⚽️ 24.08.2019 – Dusseldorf vs Leverkusen 1: 3 (Bundesliga)
