Correct Score odds
RB Leipzig have kept an incredible 11 clean sheets in the 24 Bundesliga matches and they have been the best team defensively this season. Augsburg have conceded more goals (46) than the goals scored (43) by RB Leipzig. Such has been the story of their struggling defence and the likes of Timo Werner would be rejoicing the possibility of scoring a couple of goals this weekend. Still, our correct score prediction expects this game to be competitive with a 2-0 home win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
This game is likely to witness yet another clean sheet, which has been the case in four out of the last six head-to-head meetings. RB Leipzig’s strong defence may not give Augsburg much of a shot at goal. RB Leipzig have also not been outstanding going forward. Our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Yussuf Poulsen had a strong performance against Nuremberg during the weekend. The 24-year-old has come up with a string of good performances in away matches but he has not been so great in home games. Still, the Danish forward is the top scorer at RB Leipzig with 12 goals and two assists from 24 appearances. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Yussuf Poulsen.
