Match Date: 24 September 2014 (local time)

Venue: BayArena

 

Augsburg just secured its 2nd consecutive win in a classy fashion after overturning Werder Bremen’s lead into their own success last weekend. Needless to say, they can readily use this as a motivation to continue its winning streak. But since they will be travelling to BayArena, they cannot expect an easy victory in the said area since Bayer is determined to seek redemption after a thrashing that they received from Wolfsburg.

 

The contenders

Bayer Leverkusen

If not for Josip Drmic, Wolfsburg could have easily kept a clean sheet against Bayer. Nevertheless, this does not erase the fact that their opponent readily thrashed and humiliated them.  The premonitions of getting a not so favorable result, were already evident during the early minutes of the match. Giulio Donati conceded a penalty and received a red card on the 7th minute. This probably triggered the lackluster performance, which eventually, ended in a bitter loss.

 

Augsburg

Unlike, Bayer, Augsburg had a superb performance. Though Werder Bremen took the lead on the 3rd minute, they were able to equalize and when the 2nd half came, they were already in control.

 

Augsburg ended the match with a score of 4-2 in their favor.

 

Possible head turners

Expect the key players of the online betting favorite, Bayer to step up in the upcoming match. Stefan Kiesling and Heung-Min Son were silent in the club’s previous match and definitely, these two will use every chance they get to display their scoring prowess.

 

Prediction

Bayer Leverkusen 2-0 Augsburg
