Our football match prediction:
Following back-to-back defeats to the likes of Borussia M’gladbach and Hamburger, Bayer Leverkusen defeated Eintracht Frankfurt in their last league game. The BayArena outfit produced a terrific display in the 3-0 win over die Adler, but they need to keep on improving their game if they are to book their place in the Champions League. Roger Schmidt’s troops are seven points behind top four in the Bundesliga standings and we predict that the visitors will go all guns blazing at Augsburg in Friday’s football match at WWK Arena. Manuel Baum’s men failed to spoil Mainz’s party at OPEL ARENA at the weekend, but their Bundesliga status is not in danger and nothing else matters. Anyhow, Bayer Leverkusen want this win more than their rivals and we are tempted to put our money on Javier Hernandez and his teammates this time out. You should bear in mind that Augsburg are after their first ever win over Bayer in the German top flight.
