Buoyed by a 2-1 win at Borussia M’gladbach, Bayer Leverkusen will look to stay in the Champions League berth when they host Augsburg to their BayArena on Saturday afternoon.
Bayer did remarkably well to put an end to their four-match winless run, meaning that they are high on spirits ahead of the visit of Augsburg.
Midfielder Karem Demirbay is banned for the match, while both Edmond Tapsoba and Odilon Kossounou are on international duty.
Paulinho has been tested positive for coronavirus. The Bavarians, on the other hand, head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Eintracht Frankfurt.
Considering that Augsburg have been struggling on the travels this season, anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise. Goalkeeper Tomas Koubek is quarantined, while both Iago and Tobias Strobl remain in the recovery room for the visiting side.
This match will be played on 22/01/2022 at 15:30
Score Prediction: 2-0
Recommended pick: Home Win
