Best Tip: Leverkusen to win

There looks like a strong favourite for this fixture, and it's Leverkusen. Their latest form stats show their ability in front of their own fans, and historical head-to-head (H2H) data proves they know how to beat Augsburg too. The odds point towards Xabi Alonso's side claiming victory in the win / draw / win market, and that's definitely our prediction for Saturday afternoon too.
