RB Leipzig vs FC Augsburg Preview

RB Leipzig vs FC Augsburg

Competition – German Bundesliga

Stadium – Red Bull Arena Leipzig

Date: 9th February 2018

Kick-off time – 19:30 GMT

RB Leipzig have failed to reach the standards their performances last season set for them but Ralph Hasenhüttl’s men have nevertheless been impressive this season as they look to secure a win over another tough opponent here.

They needed a late goal from Everton’s Lookman Ademola to win their last game against Gladbach and their fans will be hoping they perform better on home turf this time.

Leipzig seem to find it hard to stop opponents from scoring as they have conceded at least one goal in 3 of their last 4 matches and in 4 of their last 5 home games.

Augsburg have not enjoyed some of the best results recently but they stormed to a 3-0 home win against a strong Frankfurt side last weekend and that should have boosted their confidence ahead of this game.

They had won just once in six attempts prior to that win although in truth they have not really being playing badly; they just find it hard to win games convincingly.

Players like Gregoritsch, Cordova and Haller have made them one of the most exciting attacking teams to watch and they will be looking to get the better of Leipzig in this game.
