Match Preview
This match pairs two teams with opposing financial situations. While RB Leipzig enjoy the support and sponsorship of principle owner Red Bull, FC Augsburg do not have the spending power of the home team.
Nevertheless, the two sides are only divided by four points in the Bundesliga (BL) with Leipzig third on 35 points, and Augsburg seventh on 31 points.
A surprise to many, the reverse fixture ended in a 1-0 home win for Augsburg. In three league games between these sides, the results are balanced with both teams having one win, one loss and one draw each.
Even though Augsburg have fared fairly well away from home (W3, D3, L4), they have not been successful against the top teams when playing away and have lost games to Bayern Munich, Schalke 04 and Borussia Mönchengladbach. Can they reverse this trend and make a statement to their fans?
Players to watch: In the absence of Augsburg’s top scorer Alfred Finnbogason through injury (11 goals, two assists), Michael Gregoritsch is their main threat with nine goals and two assists. He has however, only scored once in his last four games.
Leipzig’s top scorer Timo Werner has scored ten goals and has three assists. He has hit the back of the net twice in his last four games.
Stat attack: Augsburg have won just one point from their last three BL away games and their last win on the road was two months ago in a 3-1 win at Mainz. However, Leipzig themselves have won only once in their last four home games (W1, D2, L1).
Leipzig are the most successful team of all BL teams when playing on a Friday. They have a record of four wins, a draw and no defeats. On the other hand, Augsburg are without a win in twelve consecutive Friday BL fixtures, waiting for their first win in four years!
