The achievement of the season goals moves on 31 Matchday for many clubs in the Bundesliga within reach. For example, FC Augsburg could seal the league. This would hardly have been expected a few weeks ago, when the team under Manuel Baum did not really succeed.
But under Martin Schmidt the Fuggers are back and thus could already be a catch behind the season on Friday. The prerequisite for this is a victory against Bayer Leverkusen.
Augsburg vs Leverkusen Football Betting Tips
At the moment the FCA is in position 14. Meanwhile, however, the Augsburg have worked out a cushion of eleven points on the relegation place. All that is missing is a victory against the Werkself. But if Stuttgart also lose this weekend, then it does not matter what the FCA does. Nevertheless, the team of Martin Schmidt will be hot, and in the duel between Augsburg and Leverkusen a tip on a home win should already be considered. The Werkself is still fighting for participation in an international competition. After Bayern and Leipzig are in the final of the DFB Cup, now the seventh place for the Europa League would be enough. The Leverkusen are currently up to the rank. Bremen and Wolfsburg are the Werkself but still on the neck. So completely out of sight is also fourth not yet. Up to the Champions League are currently missing five points. Maybe even something is going in that direction. But would have to match in the duel between Augsburg and Leverkusen but a prediction on an away win. For Bayer is true that a victory must be retracted necessarily, while it would be nice for Augsburg to celebrate in its own stadium under floodlights the league. The fact that the FCA still plays in the next year in the upper house, is now beyond doubt. The kick-off for the 31st matchday in the Bundesliga between FC Augsburg and Bayer Leverkusen in the WWK-Arena takes place on 26.04.2019 at 20:30.
Augsburg – Statistics & Current Form
The FC Augsburg was in great descent. However, sometimes it can go very fast and you have got rid of the biggest worries. So it was now the case with the puppeteers. Obviously, it was a golden decision to replace Manuel Baum with Martin Schmidt. The Swiss is the first coach to win his first two Bundesliga games with the FCA. With six points from the last two games, FC Augsburg was able to clearly set off from the vulnerable zone. Meanwhile, you can approach the last four game days very relaxed. It is to be assumed that you will hold the class even without your own point gain from the last matches. This is also because the Augsburg are absolute specialists to standards. 15 goals have scored the Fuggerstädter this season after a dormant ball. The FCA has never been better in this respect in the Bundesliga. Perhaps it might make sense to check the odds on a standard goal of Augsburg in the match between Augsburg and Leverkusen.
What the team of Martin Schmidt has delivered on the last weekend, may without any if and will be called Big Point. In the relegation duel of VfB Stuttgart was equal to 6: 0 shot from the stadium. This makes it clear who currently has supremacy in Swabia. Rani Khedira, Andre Hahn and Philipp Max got their preliminary goals in the first stage. Marco Richter with a double and again Philipp Max made half the dozen full in the second half.
“Bayer Leverkusen have unbelievable individual quality and they play incredibly fast on the offensive, especially in the last third. But there will be opportunities for us and we will use them. ” – Martin Schmidt
With such a victory in the back you can also compete against the opponent of fear with a broad chest. Although Martin Schmidt has respect for the Werkself, but also makes it clear that he trusts his team a victory. Personally, there is no reason to make changes to the starting eleven. Raphael Framberger, Felix Götze, Alfred Finnbogason and Sergio Cordova will continue to be unavailable due to injury. A question mark is also behind Dong-Won Ji. But all these players were not used in the last week when they defeated Stuttgart. Only Jeffrey Gouweleeuw has Martin Schmidt to worry about.
Expected formation of Augsburg:
↳ Luthe – Stafylidis, Danso, Gouweleeuw, Schmid – Baier, Khedira, Gregory – Max, cock, judge
↳ Trainer: Schmidt
Last matches from Augsburg:
⚽️ 20.04.2019 – Augsburg Vs. VfB Stuttgart 6: 0 (Bundesliga)
⚽️ 14.04.2019 – Frankfurt vs Augsburg 1: 3 (Bundesliga)
⚽️ 07.04.2019 – Augsburg Vs. TSG Hoffenheim 0: 4 (Bundesliga)
⚽️ 02.04.2019 – Augsburg Vs. RB Leipzig 1: 2 (DFB Cup)
⚽️ 30.03.2019 – Nuremberg vs Augsburg 3: 0 (Bundesliga)
Leverkusen – Statistics & Current Form
Despite the enormous quality that Bayer Leverkusen has in the team, it looked a long time afterwards as if the goal of qualifying for an international competition would be missed. By blunders of the competition and the Cup final between Bayern and Leipzig, the odds have already improved significantly. The Werkself has it completely in his own hands again, although you probably can not afford any mistakes. Maybe then even the participation in the premier class is in it. Augsburg should be at least a predestined opponent on Friday, because not only that the Werkself has never lost to the FCA, Bayer Leverkusen has not lost this season nor a game against a team to find the clash in the lower third of the table was. Therefore, a lot speaks in favor of placing a bet on a victory of the guests in the match between Augsburg and Leverkusen, if the Fugger City would not be in a good mood.
Last Leverkusen took two wins in a row, but these were also absolute duty. Overall, however, the Rhinelander did both in the 1-0 win in Stuttgart as well as in the 2-0 at home against 1. FC Nuremberg very difficult. Bayer 04 was superior to the club but needed to see it through to the 60th minute before Lucas Alario scored the 1-0.
“With the performance of the last two games we have a chance to reach the goal of the season. That would be great to be in Europe. ” – Peter Bosz
Only in the final phase made Kevin Volland with the 2: 0 the lid on this game. All in all, however, Peter Bosz was very satisfied with his team’s last two appearances and hopes to gain some momentum in the final spurt of the Bundesliga. For the participation in the international competition, there are still some points to be taken. Personnel will have to give at least a change, because Leon Bailey will fail because of muscular complaints. With Karim Bellarabi also missing the second part of the wing tongs injured. We can therefore imagine that on Friday, Peter Bosz will unpack a tactic that is designed very central.
Expected formation of Leverkusen:
↳ Hradecky – Tah, S. Bender, Wendell – Aranguiz, Baumgartlinger – Weiser, Havertz, Brandt, Volland – Alario
↳ Coach: Bosz
Last matches from Leverkusen:
⚽️ 20.04.2019 – Leverkusen Vs. Nuremberg 2: 0 (Bundesliga)
⚽️ 13.04.2019 – VfB Stuttgart vs Leverkusen 0: 1 (Bundesliga)
⚽️ 06.04.2019 – Leverkusen Vs. RB Leipzig 2: 4 (Bundesliga)
⚽️ 29.03.2019 – TSG Hoffenheim vs. Leverkusen 4: 1 (Bundesliga)
⚽️ 17.03.2019 – Leverkusen Vs. Werder Bremen 1: 3 (Bundesliga)
