After two back to back wins in the Bundesliga, Augsburg have lost their last game away from home. They will be looking to bounce back when they host Bayer 04 Leverkusen at the WWK Arena in the 21st round of the German Bundesliga.
Augsburg To Bounce Back
The hosts have been struggling in the bottom half of the table for quite some time now. The team have collected a total of 7 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in the Bundesliga. Their last league match was against Mainz away from home where they lost 2-1.
Augsburg are currently sitting in the 13th place in the league table. They have 24 points from 6 wins, 6 draws and 8 losses. The team scored 18 goals and conceded 24 since the start of the season.
Philipp Max should switch back to right-back, with Konstantinos Stafylidis a major doubt to recover from an infection in time. Ja-Cheol Koo returns from injury to start in central midfield, while Dominik Kohr returns from suspension as well.
Bayer Leverkusen To Grab A European Spot
The visitors are in an inconsistent form at the moment. The team have won only two of their last five games in the Bundesliga. Bayer 04 Leverkusen have collected a total of 7 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games in the Bundesliga. Their last league match was against Eintracht Frankfurt at home where they won 3-0.
Bayer 04 Leverkusen are currently sitting in the 9th place in the league table. They have 27 points from 8 wins, 3 draws and 9 losses. They have scored 31 goals and conceded 29 since the start of the season.
Aleksandar Dragovic is fully fit again and will replace the suspended Ömer Toprak at centre-back. Lars Bender, Julian Baumgartlinger and Charles Aránguiz compete for a spot in central midfield.
Head To Head
Bayer 04 Leverkusen have won 1 of the last 5 meetings between the two teams. The last clash between the two teams was in September 2016 when the final score was 0-0 in the reverse fixture earlier this season.
