There's plenty on the line at the RB Arena on Match Day 25 as RB Leipzig play host to Augsburg.


Currently third in the standings RB Leipzig have opened up a gap of five points back to fifth placed Eintracht Frankfurt in the race for the Champion's League. They will be looking to ensure they at least maintain that gap by posting what fans will expect to be a routine home win here.


It is matters at the other end of the table which concern Augsburg. Currently fourth bottom, they are only two points clear of the drop zone at present, but do arrive on the back of their biggest result of the season having beaten leaders Borussia Dortmund last time out.


RB Leipzig picked up the points with a 2-0 win in this game last season. There was nothing to split the sides earlier in the current campaign though, with the game in Augsburg ending in a goalless draw.


Amadou Haidara and Dayot Upamecano are out for Leipzig. Augsburg's injury situation is somewhat more bothersome. Jefrey Gouweleeuw, Raphael Framberger, Alfred Finnbogason, Andreas Luthe, Fabian Giefer, Julian Schieber and Konstantinos Stafylidis are all crocked, whilst Reece Oxford and André Hahn are suspended.


RB Leipzig have won seven of twelve overall at home, but none of their last three, scoring just once across those three games.


Augsburg have won just twice on the road, losing six of their last seven and failing to score in four of those games.


RB Leipzig aren't ultra-reliable at home, but are taken to come out on top against poor travellers and injury ravaged Augsburg.





Prediction: RasenBallsport Leipzig 2 - 0 Augsburg
