Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Leipzig will be looking to extend their winning run in the Bundesliga to three games when they take on Augsburg at Red Bull Arena. The Red Bulls recorded a routine 3-0 win over Schalke 04 at the weekend, with the team keeping their title hopes alive. Leipzig are eager to melt Bayern Munchen’s advantage in the Bundesliga standings, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Augsburg.
The Bavarians suffered yet another dip in form, with the team losing to both Borussia Dortmund and Wolfsburg in the previous two league fixtures. Since Leipzig have turned their Red Bull Arena into a real fortress, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. When the two teams met in the DFB Pokal in December Leipzig rolled over Augsburg 3-0, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the hosts.
Highlighted Player (Robert Lewandowski):
After scoring 36 goals in 59 league games for Znicz Pruskow, Robert Lewandowski joined Lech Poznan in June, 2008. The 184-cm-tall attacker scored 18 goals in 28 appearances for the club in the 2009/2010 Ekstraklasa campaign and during the season he was on Borussia Dortmund’s radar.
The Polish forward signed a four-year deal with the Bundesliga side in June, 2010 and he quickly established himself as the team’s key attacker. Lewandowski was producing excellent performances with the Millionaires between 2010 and 2014 and it has to be noted that he won two Bundesliga trophies with the club (2010/2011, 2011/2012). He participated in the 2012/2013 Champions League final with Borussia Dortmund, but the Millionaires were beaten by fellow Bundesliga side Bayern Munich in the title game.
However, he betrayed Borussia Dortmund fans in 2014 as he signed a four-year deal with the Bundesliga giants. Lewandowski impressed in the 2016/2017 Bundesliga campaign as he scored 30 goals in 32 league games for Pep Guardiola’s troops. The Polish footballer represented his homeland at Euro 2016 in France and he scored one goal at the showpiece tournament in France.
