Bayer Leverkusen vs Augsburg – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Bayer Leverkusen are hoping to kick start their campaign with a victory over Augsburg in their first home game of the new Bundesliga season. Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Bayer Leverkusen -1.0 Goal

Bayer Leverkusen slipped to a slender 1-0 loss at Dortmund in their first assignment of the campaign, though Die Werkself look ready to bounce back against Augsburg on Saturday. The visitors’ confidence took a battering when they lost 4-0 at home to Freiburg last week and their recent record against Bayer makes for equally grim reading. Leverkusen scored nine times over two Bundesliga encounters with Die Fuggerstädter in 2021/22 and they are strong enough to cover the -1.0 goal handicap again this weekend.

Moussa Diaby to Score Anytime

Moussa Diaby ran riot for Bayer Leverkusen when they demolished Augsburg 5-1 in the teams’ most recent encounter in January. The French forward helped himself to three goals and his dynamic style was too much for Augsburg to handle. While another hattrick is probably unlikely on Saturday, Diaby should be armed with enough self-belief to cause Die Fuggerstädter major headaches in defence again. With that considered, he could be worth backing in the anytime goalscorer stakes.
