Leverkusen -1 AH

Leverkusen just had a 6-2 big victory against Nice on Thursday and will face Augsburg at home on Sunday without fans. They are clearly the better team and are picking up their best form.

 The Leverkusen has always been a top-4 contender in Bundesliga. This season they had lost their key player Havertz, which significantly affect their attacking game. Their xG had fallen from around 1.8 per game last season, to about 1.3 this season (inc. all competitive games). However, it is their improvement in the defensive end that makes them able to maintain similar competitiveness to last season. They have conceded just 4 goals in 6 matches and remain unbeaten so far. The youngster defender Tapsoba developed into a solid rock at the back, which is the main reason for this improvement. This game will play on Monday so they have 3 days to rest after midweek, which should be enough for them to restore their best level.

The Augsburg surprised everyone with 2 victories at the start of the league season, including the 2-0 over Dortmund. However, it seems that other teams had caught up with their sharpness, so they had 2 mediocre games recently, which matched quite well with the level they performed last season as a relegation battling team. This season they lost their important left-back Philipp Max, while acquired Caligiuri from Schalke, which is a fair trade in quality. Personally, I would expect Augsburg in the bottom half of the table, and playing a defensive game there.  For team news, first-choice forward Patrick Schick will be still out for Leverkusen, but substitute Alario is doing similarly well so far.

I believe the Augsburg is unlikely to score, so, I predict there is a good chance Leverkusen will win the game by 1 goal or more, so it is valuable to back Leverkusen -1 AH with odds at 2.03.
