Bayer Leverkusen vs FC Augsburg Total Goals 2.5 (Over/Under)
Last Saturday, Leverkusen put up an impressive attacking performance at Rhein neighbors Borussia despite lacking a sharp shooting edge.
Gerardo Seoane’s team had an astonishing 32 shots on the opponent’s goal, 14 of which were successful. Still, Yann Sommer’s outstanding goalkeeping performance and lackluster finishing prevented them from earning a score more comfortable than the final 2-1 victory.
Early in the second half, Patrik Schick was denied the chance to start the scoring as Robert Andrich converted the rebound of his saved penalty.
Only Robert Lewandowski has scored more goals in the Bundesliga this season, but the Czech Republic striker made no mistakes when he increased his team’s lead to 2-0 later in half. It was only his 16th appearance of the season.
Despite the onslaught from Die Werkself, Nico Elvedi pulled one back for their opponents to set up a tense finish. However, Leverkusen secured the three points despite Kerem Demirbay missing their second penalty of the game in the dying moments.
The win, as previously indicated, was Leverkusen’s first in six games played in all competitions following the winter break. It moved Seoane’s team to third in the standings heading into matchday 20 at the weekend.
In the meantime, Augsburg, who has already played at Hoffenheim and at home against Eintracht Frankfurt to start the New Year, travels to Leverkusen for their third straight game of 2022 against a team vying for European football next season.
Markus Weinzierl’s team rallied after losing 3-1 to Hoffenheim to play well and draw 1-1 with Die Adler last Sunday. Michael Gregoritsch scored for the second match in a row to give his team a point.
As was already said, it does leave Fuggerstadter with just one victory overall and a losing streak of four games.
Only with one point difference from Arminia Bielefeld and Stuttgart in the relegation playoff berth and drop zone, respectively. Augsburg start matchday 20 in 15th place in the Bundesliga.
For the relegation-threatened visitors, three points would therefore be crucial on Saturday. However, that remains a difficult ask for a team that has had such a difficult time traveling this season, only with seven of their 19 points and six of their 19 goals scored coming away from the WWK Arena.
In addition, Augsburg has lost all 22 previous encounters with their opponents. Thus, Weinzierl’s team will have to overcome all odds if they want to escape danger this weekend.
Bayer Leverkusen vs FC Augsburg Team News
Demirbay will face a one-match suspension for Bayer Leverkusen on the weekend after missing a penalty last weekend and receiving his fifth caution of the year.
For a few more weeks, fellow central midfielders Julian Baumgartlinger, Exequiel Palacios, and Charles Aranguiz will be out with injuries. With Nadiem Amiri potentially leaving the club, the influential Florian Wirtz may need to move into a deeper position alongside Andrich.
As a result of the absence of Paulinho and Niklas Lomb due to COVID-19, the continued international commitments of Odilon Kossounou and Edmond Tapsoba, as well as the injuries to Andrey Lunev and Daley Sinkgraven, Seoane’s squad lacks depth.
For the visitors, Mads Pedersen is anticipated to fill in for full-back Iago who is projected to miss a few weeks due to the muscle injury that pulled him off at halftime last weekend.
Tobias Strobl, who will likely miss the rest of the regular season due to a serious knee injury, is the only other absentee. 2nd choice goalkeeper Tomas Koubek is absent due to COVID-19.
new signings Gregoritsch and Ricardo Pepi will be looking to lead the line once more, although Alfred Finnbogason and Andre Hahn will be competing for the starting position.
