Leverkusen are looking to preserve a 13-game unbeaten run against Augsburg, who have a lot of momentum on their hands after the back-to-back big victories. Leverkusen are not exactly outstanding when it comes to away matches, but the team has sufficient quality in order to force a stalemate at the least. Since February, there have been just two away wins for Leverkusen and both have been against teams in the bottom three. Our preview would pick a stalemate.

Augsburg win odds: 4.50
Bayer Leverkusen win odds: 1.66
Correct Score odds
Leverkusen are up against an Augsburg outfit that has scored nine goals in the last two matches. It is a remarkable streak for Martin Schmidt’s team, as Augsburg had scored just eight goals in the previous eight games. The momentum provided by the big wins over Frankfurt and Stuttgart will be left within the home team, but Leverkusen’s fight to finish in the top six will see a tight game. Our correct score prediction would pick a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There have been over 2.5 goals in the last five league matches involving Augsburg. Leverkusen have not been defensively outstanding with the team conceding eight goals in the last four matches, but there has been an improvement on this front with Leverkusen registering back-to-back clean sheets – albeit against weaker opponents. Our total goals prediction would back a game with under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Marco Richter has come up with four goals in his last two matches. This incredible form will make sure that the 21-year-old starts a match against Leverkusen for the first time in his career. The absence of players like Alfred Finnbogason due to injury makes our first goalscorer prediction go with Marco Richter.
