Team News: Augsburg
There’s just a single fitness concern for the Augsburg boss Heiko Herrlich to be concerned with from a near full-strength squad. Jan Morávek (Muscle Injury) is sidelined.
Team News: RB Leipzig
RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann has multiple availability issues to deal with. Fabrice Hartmann (Ruptured knee ligament), Marcel Sabitzer (Torn Muscle Fibre) and Ibrahima Konaté (Fitness) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
In our view, Augsburg have the ability to score a goal against this RB Leipzig outfit, but one goal possibly won’t be as many as they’ll concede.
Therefore, we’re predicting a 1-2 win for RB Leipzig at the end of the match. Should be a good one.
