Augsburg vs Bayer: prediction for the Bundesliga match
Augsburg are set to host Bayer for the Bundesliga Week 19 clash. Will the Pharmacists launch a new winning streak on February 3? The answer is in our prediction.
Augsburg are going through an unsuccessful season and things didn't improve after the World Cup pause. Enrico Maassen's team suffered two defeats in three latest matches, losing to Borussia Dortmund (3:4) and Freiburg (1:3). A narrow victory over Borussia Monchengladbach (1:0) keeps the team away from the relegation zone, but only by two points.
Fuggers have many players on injuried list, that problem surely affects team's performance. Team is unconvincing even at home, so it will be hard for the hosts to avoid relegation.
Bayer's winning streak, which reached five games, ended in the previous match. Xabi Alonso's men hosted Borussia Dortmund and created many goal opportunities in that goal. But ball refused to go into opponent's net, while the Pharmacists conceded two goals (0:2).
That defeat should increase Leverkusen's motivation for the upcoming match, because team is just seven points behind the European places. Patrick Schick returned to fitness, now he is ready to help his teammates, who played well even without him.
Ставка Correct score 1:2
Bayer secured two of five latest away victories by that score
Ставка Bayer to score in the first half
This bet played in three of four latest away matches of Bayer
Ставка Second half: total over 1.5 goals
This bet played in four of five latest head-to-head matches in Augsburg
Augsburg looked bleak in recent matches, they struggle to score even at home. The Fuggers will probably turn their attention to defense, counting on counter-attacks. But they are unlikely to succeed against Bayer.
Leverkusen side is always active on flanks and gets past the middle quite quickly, sending many players on the offense even on away fixtures. Augsburg's defense seems vulnerable, so it might crumble at some point of the game. Pharmacists are looking solid, so we offer to place a bet on them.
Our prediction - Bayer to win
However, the Fuggers will be exptremely motivated for the upcoming game, because a bad result might get the team into a danger zone. Hosts probably won't lose by more than one goal, but we also don't think that they will pick up any points here.
Our second bet is on Bayer to win by one goal
