When Augsburg visits Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday afternoon, they will be looking to avenge their 1-0 setback to Borussia Dortmund.
At Signal-Iduna Park, Gerardo Seoane’s team did lose, but it must be remembered that pivotal attacker Patrik Schick wasted two excellent chances to score the equalizer.
When fellow midfielder Charles Aranguiz went off the field due to injury on Matchday 1, Robert Andrich was expected to fill his spot.
Floarin Wirtz is also out due to an injury. On the other side, the Bavarians are one of the top contenders to be demoted to the 2. Bundesliga.
Anything other than a simple home victory would be a significant surprise, given that Augsburg had numerous defensive issues in a 4-0 loss to Freiburg.
Ruben Vargas and Reece Oxford are both huge doubts, while all of Lukas Petkov, Niklas Dorsch, Lasse Gunther, Dikeni Salifou, and Tobias Strobl are still in the recovery room.
The game will take place on August 13, 2022, at 14:30.
Prediction: Home Win.
