📰 Team News: Bayer Leverkusen

The Bayer Leverkusen boss Xabi Alonso will be happy not to have any fitness concerns at all coming into this game owing to a fully injury-free group available to choose from.

In all likelihood, Leverkusen look set to line up in a 3-4-2-1 system, utilising Lukas Hradecky, Odilon Kossounou, Jonathan Tah, Piero Hincapie, Arthur, Alejandro Grimaldo, Robert Andrich, Granit Xhaka, Jonas Hofmann, Amine Adli and Victor Okoh Boniface.

📋 Team News: Augsburg

Augsburg manager Jess Thorup has to contend with a number of unavailable players. Robert Gumny (Cruciate ligament tear), Reece Oxford (muscular problems), Raphael Framberger (Cruciate ligament tear), Rubén Vargas (muscular problems), Fredrik Jensen (Calf injury), Finn Dahmen (Ligament injury) and Elvis Rexhbecaj (Metatarsal fracture) won’t be making appearances. Kevin Mbabu will not be able to play in this game through being suspended.

From our viewpoint, Augsburg will likely play in a 4-3-1-2 formation by sending out Tomas Koubek, Maximilian Bauer, Jeffrey Gouweleeuw, Felix Uduokhai, Iago, Kristijan Jakic, Arne Maier, Arne Engels, Ruben Vargas, Phillip Tietz and Ermedin Demirovic.

🔮 Prediction

We’ve got the feeling that Bayer Leverkusen should get a lot of shots on goal and make them count.

At the same time, Augsburg will be up against it to score a goal of their own - but, we do see them hitting back at some stage here, too.

Our selection here is for a comfortable 3-1 margin for Bayer Leverkusen at full-time.
