Match Preview

  • Early Bundesliga pacesetters Augsburg and RB Leipzig take identical records (W2, D1) into this clash, but recent history is against the hosts as they’ve won just one previous Bundesliga H2H (D3, L4). Augsburg’s league matches are yet to witness a goal before the 40th minute this term and they’ve received an average of just 1.33 yellow cards per league game this season (Leipzig: 1.67).
  • It’s been four home league matches since Augsburg last failed to score (W1, D1, L2), although victory over Borussia Dortmund (September 26) was their first Bundesliga home win in eight attempts (D3, L4). They’ve also opened the scoring just twice in nine such fixtures.
  • Leipzig have scored 3+ goals in three of their last four competitive matches (W3, D1), helping them top the table at this early stage thanks to goal difference. Scoring first in all three league games this term, they were unbeaten when doing so in the Bundesliga last season (W14, D3). Six of their eight Bundesliga strikes this campaign have also arrived before the 50th minute.
  • Now eight away league games unbeaten (W5, D3), the ‘Red Bulls’ netted before the 30th minute in all six matches that didn’t end goalless during that sequence. With five clean sheets therein, it’s notable that no team prevented their opponents from scoring on the road more times than Leipzig did last Bundesliga campaign (eight).
  • Players to watch: Augsburg’s Daniel Caligiuri has registered one league goal and one assist this term, and hasn’t lost any of his last seven competitive goalscoring outings (W4, D3 – outcomes at 90 minutes).
  • Emil Forsberg has netted twice for Leipzig this season. His last six competitive strikes for the club arrived either before the 20th minute or after the 85th.
  • Hot streak: Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann has never lost a managerial H2H against Augsburg (W7, D2). Five of the last six produced over 2.5 goals.
