AH Bayer Leverkusen ()  @


Bayer Leverkusen will welcome Augsburg at the Bay Arena on Saturday.

Bayer Leverkusen
Bayer Leverkusen defeated Borussia Monchengladbach with 2-1 in last away game, ending a five-game winless streak and improving their morale a lot. The good news is that their offensive side has finally returned to normal levels recently, with goals scored in last 9 league games. In the six rounds since December, a total of 20 goals have been scored. However, there are still injuries in their lineups. The absence of Aranguiz has weakened their midfielders offensive and defensive conversion ability. It was evident that their opponents of the past 5 games have created 15 shoot opportunities.

For Augsburg, after a 1-1 draw with Eintracht Frankfurt in last home game, the team hassuffered four consecutive winless rounds. At present, they have once again slipped to 15th position of the standings, only 1 point away from the relegation zone. Moreover, Augsburgs away form has not been improved at all as they only won 1 out of past 10 away matches.

Bayer Leverkusen can be regarded as the nemesis of Augsburg in terms of head to head record. They have a strong psychological advantage with keeping unbeaten in 19 consecutive h2h matches. The Asian Handicap first odd of this game is Bayer Leverkusen -1/1.5, which supports the home team enough. So Bayer Leverkusen will be expected to get a big win.

Pick: Bayer Leverkusen -1/1.5
