  • Competition: Bundesliga

  • Venue: BayArena (Leverkusen)

Bayer Leverkusen is having the best season in the club's history. They had already won their first Bundesliga, but Xabi Alonso's team could lift two more trophies (Europa League and DFB Pokal) until the end. The Europa League final against Atalanta is next Wednesday in Dublin, so we could expect Alonso to rotate the squad.

The fate of Augsburg's bid for the eighth position in the Bundesliga remains uncertain amid the question of whether it will secure qualifications for the Conference League next season. With Freiburg currently holding the coveted spot, Augsburg, trailing by three points, is determined to clinch it in the final round. However, Augsburg are in terrible form with four defeats in a row. In the last match, they lost 1-0 at home against Stuttgart. The home side had xG of only 0.71, while guests had 2.37, so it is no wonder Augsburg suffered another defeat. 

Bayer Leverkusen vs Augsburg pick: Over 3.5 goals

Bayer Leverkusen scored 16 goals in the last five matches. Also four of those four games went over 3.5 goals. On the other hand, Augsburg allowed 11 goals in the previous three road games. We should expect at least four goals on Saturday in the game between Bayer Leverkusen and Augsburg.

Bayer Leverkusen team news

Bayer Leverkusen's head coach Xabi Alonso admitted that his team is thinking more about Europa League and DFB Pokal than the game against Augsburg. A few days ago, he said, "The feeling is very good, we're looking forward to playing two finals. It's a great opportunity for us. We have time to prepare. There's still the Bundesliga game, but of course, we're already focussing on the two finals."

Odilon Kossounou and Florian Wirtz are injured and will not play on Saturday against Augsburg.
