after a long busy time I'm trying to get back to my hobby. If my job allows me to I'll be writing my tips in here more often.
In german Bundesliga we saw intersting matches so far this year and I think it'll continue just like that. Not necessarily in terms of who will be the number one in the end, but very certainly the rest will be extraordinary interesting.
Augsburg is a team with a good balance. Well composed and a good spirit. Coach Weinzierl has a plan and his team is following him. But normally they don't belong in this region of the table. In this season, like before, they just understand to capitlise on the weaknesses of their opponents.
As seen in the last two matches they're also struggling, in particular with the lack of a second defense row. At the beginning of the season they bought 4 or 5 offensive players. And I think the time is coming to regret that the focus was laid there.
Only adequate player on the bench against Leverkusen to back up the defense will be Dominik Kohr. Who's a player with talent but still in a learning process. Captain Verhaegh will be missing because of his fifth yelloy card. Available attckers will be Ji, Djurdjic, Caiuby and Parker. First three still will have to prove that their skill suffices for Bundesliga and Parker is a young one which I like but who's like a counterpart of Kohr. He'll need time to come up.
In addition they will get problems in the midfield. Hφjbjerg and Altintop are a little tattered, but because lack of alternatives they will play. Only players from the U23 will be on the bench for this match.
Of course Leverkusen can't be called 'in good shape'. They lost against upcoming Werder Bremen (1:2) and fought a good fight against Wolfsburg (4:5). But now's the time to get something out of their efforts.
This game is essential to get back in touch with the Champion League places as well as stay away from hunting teams like Hoffenheim, Bremen and Frnakfurt.
Only important player missing this match is Bender who can be replaced without loss of strength (Rolfes, Castro).
So I'm pretty sure Leverkusen will take this opportunity seriously and will have the courage to pull it through.
Besides the stats for Augsburg vs. Leverkusen: 0-0-4 and 3:12 goals
Same goes for Augsburg in Leverkusen: 4 losses with 3:9 goals
Only victory was a friendly in 2012 (2:0 at home).
My bet for this weekend: Leverkusen wins in Augsburg
