Leverkusen on 50 Game Unbeaten Run

Bayer Leverkusen’s rise to the top of German football is as unbelievable as it is entertaining. Xabi Alonso has taken a team that was in the relegation zone in October 2022 to the brink of the first-ever invincible Bundesliga campaign. Bayer Leverkusen clinched their first Bundesliga title last month and they’ve remained motivated to not lose a match.

Last Thursday, Leverkusen came back from 2-0 down in the Europa League to break the European record for most games unbeaten, in all competitions. An own goal and a 97th minute Josip Stanisic goal leveled the score at two vs. Roma and Leverkusen advanced with a 4-2 aggregate win. Five different players also got on the scoresheet in an impressive 5-0 win over Bochum on Sunday.

However, Florian Wirtz missed the match due to an injury and it doesn’t seem like Bayer Leverkusen’s talisman will be fully fit for this one. Still, Leverkusen have done just fine without him in the seven games he hasn’t started this season. Left back Alex Grimaldo leads the Bundesliga stats, with 13 assists, and he has a goal contribution in each of his last two Bundesliga appearances.

Augsburg’s Late Season Implosion

Augsburg dropped their fourth straight game last Friday as they fell 1-0 to Stuttgart. In the second half, Stuttgart’s Serhou Guirassy scored his 26th goal of the season. Augsburg’s losing streak has come at the most inopportune time imaginable. If they had won just one or two of those matches, they’d be right in the hunt for a Europa League spot.

However, Augsburg are now in tenth place in the Bundesliga table and their European hopes are hanging by a thread. Augsburg would need to win this match and hope Leverkusen defeat Kaiserslautern in next weekend’s DFB-Pokal Final just to have a chance to qualify for the Conference League.

On their losing streak, Augsburg have been outscored 12-2 and they’ve won just one of their last seven Bundesliga fixtures. To be fair, some key Augsburg players have been out lately, including goalkeeper Finn Dahmen and midfielders Elvis Rexhbecaj and Fredrik Jensen. Ruben Vargas also went off injured vs. Stuttgart and Kevin Mbabu is suspended for this one.

Leverkusen vs Augsburg Match Analysis & Odds

Bayer Leverkusen have scored five goals in each of their last two Bundesliga fixtures and Augsburg could be on the wrong end of a beating if they’re not careful here. With a bunch of players out and already low on morale, it’s going to be difficult for Augsburg to compete here. Still, Bayer Leverkusen need to be aware of Ermedin Demirovic, who has scored 15 goals and provided nine assists this season.

The Leverkusen vs Augsburg lines currently price hosts Bayer Leverkusen as -330 favorites. Leverkusen -1.5, -2 shows -110 odds and so does Augsburg +1.5, +2. Still, three of Augsburg’s last four games have finished in losses by a two goal margin or more. Augsburg are +710 underdogs but all will be awaiting Bayer potentially making history.

A draw comes in at +535 and Bayer Leverkusen wouldn’t complain about one in the slightest. This has the potential to be a wide open match tactically and over 3.5, 4 goals are priced at -120 odds. After all, Leverkusen have averaged 3.6 goals in their last five games. This historic squad can break more records in front of their home fans on Saturday.
