Our football match prediction:
Following back-to-back defeats to the likes Borussia Dortmund and Hamburger, Leipzig returned to winning ways on Matchday 21, with the team beating Borussia M’gladbach at Stadion im Borussia Park. To make things even better for the fans, the newcomers outplayed Koln (3-1) at the weekend and they are on the right track to secure their place in the Champions League group stages. Leipzig are eyeing their seventh away win of the season, but it has to be noted that they suffered three defeats in previous four away fixtures in the national championship. Augsburg, on the other hand, did well to beat rock-bottom Darmstadt in their last league match and, as a result, their Bundesliga status is no longer in danger. Manuel Baum should be happy with one point from Friday’s football match and seeing that the Red Bulls have been struggling on the travels in 2017, we predict that the two teams will share the spoils at WWK Arena.
