Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Saturday’s football game at WWK Arena pits together Augsburg and Leipzig, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the 2022/2023 Bundesliga season. The Bavarians aim to make amends for a 3-2 loss to Koln, but they will have a mountain to climb in round 11. Since Augsburg’s injury list is almost full, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the home side.
The Red Bulls, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-2 win over Hertha Berlin. Considering that Leipzig attackers have found their goal-scoring touch of late, we predict that the visitors are going to emerge triumphant in Saturday’s showdown. Timo Werner should recover in time to face the Bavarian outfit. It has to be noted that Leipzig rolled over Augsburg 4-0 in their last encounter in the German top flight.
