Augsburg vs Bayer Leverkusen predictions and betting tips on February 3, 2023
On February 3, WWK Arena (Augsburg) will host the match of the 19th round of the German Bundesliga, in which Augsburg will compete with Bayer Leverkusen. The battle will start at 20:30 CET.
The club is quite predictable, and it does not particularly surprise either in a positive or negative sense. In the summer, Enrico Maassen became its new coach. Nevertheless, being under his rule, the team stays more or less at the usual level: below the “equator” of the standings, at a small but safe distance from the relegation zone. It can only be noted that for their level, “the Fuggerstädter” are quite pretty in winter, after a long pause. They made a “shoot-out” in Dortmund: the team scored three times, however, lost to local Borussia in the very end of the game. Then “the namesakes”, which are from Monchengladbach, were beaten by means of Berisha’s late goal. On the other hand, that success was immediately followed by a 1-3 defeat against Freiburg.
The team played very well in the previous season, and returned to the Champions League in a pretty calm way, moreover, it took the 3rd place in the Bundesliga in 2021/2022. Speaking about the new draw, the triumphant coach, Seoane, paid his position for a series of quick and serious failures. His successor, Xabi Alonso, took his time to get used to the new club, and being under his rule, “the Pharmacists” were able to reach 3 victories in a row in November. After the resumption of the draw, it turned out to extend this streak. First, the club took the victory in Monchengladbach, winning the shoot-out against Borussia with a 3-2 score. And then, playing in native Leverkusen, the team had a grandmaster 2-0 success in the battle with Bochum. However, after that Dortmund came to Leverkusen and beat the hosts with the same score, bringing them back “to life”.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
The clubs had their first head-to-head matches in 2008, and after that they actively played with each other. Bayer has never lost until this season. Augsburg was able to get a 2-1 victory in Leverkusen in August.
Bookmakers believe that this time the guests will be able to take the maximum again. We believe that Bayer will succeed – thus, we are waiting for its victory (odd: 1.78).
