Leipzig will be looking to move into the top 4, as it hosts Augsburg in what will be its second last match of the ongoing season in the Bundesliga.
Just until a couple of weeks ago, things were sailing smoothly for Leipzig, as it advanced to the DGB Pokal finals, beat Glasgow Rangers in the home leg of the Europa League semifinals, and was within the top 4 in the domestic league. However, two back-to-back defeats in the top flight meant the Leipzig suddenly find themselves in the 5th place, unsure even of a European finish, and a crushing 3-1 defeat in the second leg at the hand of Rangers mean they are out of the Europa League too.
Nevertheless, all is not lost, as they still have the chance of winning a silverware at the DFB Pokal finals against Freiburg later this month, and relatively easy fixtures against Augsburg and Arminia mean they are still in the race for making it into next year’s Champions League.
Playing its 10th consecutive season in the top flight, Augsburg seems to have done just enough to keep itself safe from relegation, as it sits 6 points clear of the bottom 3, with just 2 games to go before the season ends. The visitors have won 3 of their last 6 matches, but come into this game on the back of a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Cologne in their latest outing, with Niederlechner being the lone scorer for them.
However, with the pressure of relegation off their shoulders, Augsburg is expected to play fearlessly, and most football betting sites are predicting them to put up a good fight.
Match prediction and football betting tips for RB Leipzig vs F. C. Augsburg Bundesliga 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Red Bull Arena, Leipzig, on 8th May 2022.
While Augsburg has nothing much to lose in this game, for the hosts, it will be an important match, which will decide their European fate. Being the first time that Tedesco has lost 2 consecutive games with Leipzig, he will be looking to make amends in the last 2 matches. To his advantage, Tedesco has an almost full-strength squad to choose from, with the only absentees being Amadou Haidara, who is injured, and Mohamed Simakan, who is suspended.
As for the visitors, they are likely to miss out on Tobias Strobl and Sarenren Bazee due to injuries.
We expect the hosts to win this one with relative ease.
Bet on RB Leipzig to win.
4 of the last 5 games played by Leipzig across competitions have seen more than 2.5 goals being scored in them. 5 of the last 7 games played between the 2 clubs across competitions too have seen a score higher than 2.5 goals, adding weight to our recommendation
Leipzig has conceded just 36 goals this season, the second least among all the clubs, and has kept a clean sheet in 2 out of their last 3 home games. On the other hand, Augsburg has failed to score in 2 of their last 4 games, and we reckon they will struggle to breach the strong defenses of the hosts.
