In a last effort, Leipzig will try to bounce back from their 2 recent losses and achieve a top-4 finish, guaranteeing themselves a spot in the Champions League. On the other side, Augsburg will try to secure a win to stay as far away as possible from the relegation play-offs zone.
Augsburg is exactly 6 points away from relegation zone, which means that if Stuttgart manages to win their next two games, doesn’t matter how unlikely it is, they still can get out of the relegation zone. This match that carries implications for the standings will be held at Red Bull Arena on May 8.
Leipzig recently had 2 important matches against M’gladbach and Union Berlin, and they couldn’t secure a victory in either. Tedesco’s men can’t find their footing during the later stages of their matches. They have managed to get an early lead but end up dropping it after the break. This might put some pressure on them when facing teams placed at the bottom of the standings.
And that is very strange coming from Leipzig because, in their last win against Leverkusen, Tedesco’s men played in a very controlled way, didn’t give early leads, and managed to score a goal around the 70-minute mark. After that, Leverkusen wasn’t able to penetrate Leipzig’s defense, giving Tedesco his last win before losing two matches in a row.
Augsburg comes into this match after a heavy loss against Köln, where they couldn’t come back from a deficit of 3 goals. Weinzierl’s men are on a very inconsistent form, sometimes they manage to take down top-10 teams but in the next week they’ll be taken down by the likes of Hertha.
If Augsburg wants to be 100% out of the relegation zone, then they have to at least get a draw in this upcoming match against Leipzig.
