Betting tips RB Leipzig vs Augsburg

As the Bundesliga reaches its penultimate weekend, RB Leipzig faces a huge fixture at the Red Bull Arena when they take on Augsburg on Sunday. 

Following a shock 3:1 loss at Gladbach, RB have now dropped out of the Champions League positions and they come into this fixture now 5th in the division, 1 point behind Freiburg in 4th and 4 points short of Leverkusen in 3rd spot.

Indeed, with both Koln and Union Berlin within touching distance, anything less than 3 points here could prove disastrous for RB´s chances of even finishing in a European qualifying position.

Of course, RB returns to league action following a devastating semi-final defeat against Rangers on Thursday and it remains to be seen if head coach Tedesco will be able to galvanise his physically fatigued and mentally demoralised side.

Visiting Augsburg arrives in Leipzig all but sure of their safety with a 6 point gap between themselves and Stuttgart in the relegation play-off position. 4 wins from their last 8 fixtures has helped the away side to climb the table and with a home match against bottom of the table Greuther to come next weekend, Augsburg should find themselves safe for another season.

On the road, Augsburg have lost 5 and won 2 of their last 7 with those victories coming at Bochum and Arminia Bielefeld. 

Recent meetings between these sides have been dominated by RB with the hosts winning 5 and drawing 1 of the last 6 and they should be expected to pick up the 3 points here, even if they are feeling drained from having endured a particularly challenging run of fixtures which has seen them play 9 matches over the past month.

As such, we expect a tight, low-scoring affair with RB probably just doing enough to claim a much needed 3 points.
