Our football match prediction:
Leipzig did remarkably well to beat Borussia Dortmund earlier in September and, to make things even better for the fans, the Red Bulls outplayed Hamburger on the road on Matchday 3. Ralph Hasenhuttl’s troops head into Friday’s football match against Augburg following back-to-back draws against the likes of Borussia M’gladbach and Koln and it has to be noted that the newcomers have yet to suffer a loss in the German top flight. Augsburg, on the other hand, have been having their ups and downs in the new Bundesliga campaign, but the team’s recent form is pretty good. After playing out a goalless draw with Bayer Leverkusen on Matchday 4, Dirk Schuster’s team recorded a hard-fought win over Darmstadt (1-0) at the weekend, with Finnbogason scoring the winning goal in the second half of the game. However, Leipzig are more of a team than Augsburg and we predict that the hosts will pick up all three points from Friday’s football match.

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.
