The experts feel it's worth backing Augsburg to avoid defeat in this one.
RB Leipzig v Augsburg - Friday 19:30, BT Sport Europe
Promoted Leipzig have had an impressive start to the season as they remain unbeaten with nine points from their five games, despite the fact that they’ve already hosted Dortmund and Monchengladbach. Augsburg have seven points to leave them in 11th, one place better than they managed last term, as Dirk Schuster settles in at the club having joined from Darmstadt.
Leipzig won 21 of their 34 games at the Red Bull Arena in their last two seasons in the 2.Bundesliga making it profitable to back them there, and in beating Dortmund and holding Monchengladbach to a draw this term, they look set to continue that impressive home record in the top division.
However, Augsburg won at Bremen and managed a goalless draw at Leverkusen in their two away games so far as they continue to be solid on the road. Indeed, if we exclude trips to the top four, Augsburg were W6-D4-L3 on the road last term and as a result it certainly looks worth taking on Leipzig at odds-on, for all that they’ve impressed at home so far, by backing Augsburg or Draw Double Chance.
