Bayer Leverkusen vs Augsburg Match Analysis and Prediction

The race for top four in the Bundesliga heats up with each passing day for Bayer Leverkusen looking to extend their lead this week. The side plays host to Augsburg at the BayArena on Monday with kickoff at 10:30 pm.

Leverkusen recorded their first win of the Bundesliga last weekend with their 1-0 win over Mainz 05. Augsburg’s unbeaten record came to a halt following their unceremonious 2-0 loss to RB Leipzig.

Despite their win over Mainz, it was a hard-fought battle that could have ended in a goalless draw. Lucas Alario’s headed passed through goalkeeper Robin Zentner proving to be the decisive goal of the match.

Being the first win of the Bundesliga, Peter Boss took the win quite satisfied. The side holds an unbeaten record in the league even after drawing in three of their opening matches. Leverkusen will be sure of their defence after conceding only six shots on target in their last four league matches.

A major blow for the side has been the departures of Kevin Volland to Monaco and Havertz to Chelsea. The side recorded a triumphant 6-2 win over Nice in their last Europa fixture midweek.

Heiko Herrlich will not be bothered with their first defeat of the season against RB Leipzig. The side finished last season 15th on the table with only one place above relegation playoff position.
