THE TEAM NEWS

AUGSBURG

  • Augsburg were able to breathe a huge sigh of relief after their spot in next season’s Bundesliga was confirmed as they played out a draw with relegation rivals Fortuna Dusseldorf.
  • Had Fortuna won that contest, it would have given them a slight chance of overhauling Augsburg in the final round of matches but the gap still stands at six points with just three to play for thanks to last week’s draw.
  • Florian Niederlechner had given Augsburg an early lead before they were pegged back but that proved to be the end of the scoring and with plenty of players doubtful for this contest, Augsburg may look to rotate their side to give some younger players a chance to impress.

RB LEIPZIG

  • RB Leipzig never really settled into life after the enforced break in play as their title hopes were swiftly ended and their bid to finish second came to a halt last week as they were beaten by rivals Borussia Dortmund.
  • Leipzig fell behind with 30 minutes on the clock and failed to get back into the game before Dortmund sealed the win deep into injury time to make it five home games without a win for Julian Nagelsmann’s side.
  • They have won all three games on the road following the resumption of the league and will hope that continues as they attempt to bounce back and seal fourth but they have several doubts heading into this game with Konrad Laimer and Patrik Shick among those in what will be Timo Werner’s final game for the club before he departs for Chelsea.

THE PREDICTION

RB Leipzig will have to respond to yet another disappointing home display as they attempt to make it four successive away wins in the Bundesliga. They now cannot finish second after last week’s defeat to Borussia Dortmund but head to struggling Augsburg in what presents a great chance for the visitors to end their league campaign on a high. Augsburg have narrowly avoided the drop but were disappointing again last week and Leipzig should be able to lead at both half-time and full-time.
