Leverkusen will be looking to secure its first win in the Bundesliga 2022-23 season when it hosts Augsburg this Saturday.
The odds were pretty evenly matched on most football betting sites when Leverkusen visited Dortmund last weekend to play its first match of the season. However, the visitors were unable to find an answer for Marco Reus’ 10th-minute goal for the hosts and went down by 1-0 in a closely fought match. After losing Lucas Alario, Gerardo Seoane is faced with the prospect of losing his star striker, Moussa Diaby, to Arsenal, further denting his attacking abilities. Only time will tell if his new signings are capable of filling these huge voids.
After narrowly missing a relegation in the last season, Augsburg hosted Freiburg for its season opener and was completely thrashed. The Breisgau Brasilianer ran riot at the WWK Arena, beating the hosts 4-0. Enrico Maaßen, who was coaching the Dortmund reserve team till now, will have to quickly adapt to the demands of facing a top-flight opponent if he wants his team to secure a better finish this time around. The new entrants in the club, Elvis Rexhbecaj, Arne Maier, Maximilian Bauer, and Ermedin Demirovic all got a chance in the playing eleven but failed to show a significant impact.
