  • Kickoff: 19:45 UTC +1 / 20:45 CEST
  • Venue: Red Bull Arena Leipzig

Augsburg will be looking to record what will be their first win in the new Bundesliga campaign when they make the trip to the Red Bull Arena Leipzig this weekend to face the Red Bulls.

RB Leipzig finished last season in good form, winning all their final five games, and that form is continuing in the 2023-24 season. The ''Red Bulls'' may have started the season badly with a 3-2 defeat to Leverkusen but they have shown no weaknesses since. Marco Rose's side beat Stuttgart 5-1 on Matchday 2, and there was another fantastic win against Union Berlin before the international break.

Augsburg narrowly escaped relegation in four of their last five league seasons in the German top flight and it looks like the same will happen this season. Die Fuggerstädter started their season with a 2-0 defeat to Unterhaching in the first round of the DFB Cup and have been winless since.

RB Leipzig vs Augsburg Betting Tips: RB Leipzig win & Over 2.5 goals

RB Leipzig boast seven wins from their last eight Bundesliga matches. That run includes a 3-1 win over champions FC Bayern, so picking up three points from this weekend's game won't be much of a challenge.

Augsburg's major weakness in recent months has been their defence (without a clean sheet in their last eight competitive games). All their three least games this season have ended with over 3.5 goals.

Another reason to expect many goals this weekend is the fact that recent encounters between RB Leipzig and Augsburg have been very entertaining. Each of the last four matches ended with at least three goals.

  • Best Tip: Over 2.5 goals
  • RB Leipzig vs Augsburg prediction: 2-1
