Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Following a heart-breaking loss to Borussia M’gladbach, Leipzig will look to climb to the Champions League berth when they take on Augsburg on Sunday evening. The Red Bulls have been in a fine form in 2022, and they are surely capable of matching the Bavarians on home soil. Both Klostermann and Poulsen are pushing for a start, while Guardiol is a major doubt after limping off with injury in the last league match. Defender Mohamed Sikaman serves a one-game ban.
Augsburg, on the other hand, will almost surely secure the Bundesliga survival as they are six points clear of the relegation zone. Since Leipzig want this win more than Augsburg, we predict that the hosts are going to pick up vital three points from Sunday’s showdown. Mads Pedersen is back from suspension, while all Iago, Sarenren-Bazee, and Strobl miss out with injuries.

Willi Orban was born on 3 November, 1992 in Kaiserslautern, Germany. Orban plays as a centre back, but he can operate as a defensive midfielder as well.

Orban made his debut for the first team in 2011, against Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich. The Kaiserslautern footballer made 68 league appearances for Kaiserslautern, scoring 7 goals for the German outfit between 2011 and 2015, but in May 2015 he signed a contract with Leipzig. Kaislerslautern fans were very angry with the defender when he decided to join die Bullen.
Willi Orban has two caps for Germany U21, but he has yet to make his debut for the senior team. He has a contract with Leipzig, which expires on 30 June, 2019. Willi Orban has a dual citizenship (Germany, Hungary).
Highlighted Team (Augsburg):
Augsburg are a German football club founded in Augsburg, Bavaria back in 1907. Die Fuggerstadter play in German Bundesliga and with 12,200 members they are regarded as the largest football club in Bavaria. Augsburg wear white shirts and they host their rivals at WWK ARENA.
The capacity of the stadium is 30,660 and it has been the home of Augsburg since 2009. Augsburg won the Schwaben Cup 13 times and it has to be noted that they were promoted to the Bundesliga for the first time in 2011.
The club qualified for the Europa League 2015/2016 group stages and thanks to a 3-1 win over Partizan in Belgrade they booked their place in the last 32. However, Liverpool proved to be a big catch for the German outfit in the Europa League knockout stages.
Die Fuggerstadter’s main rivals are TSV 1860 Munich and there have always been fireworks when the two teams take on each other.
