The game between Augsburg and Bayer Leverkusen opens today the day 21 of German Bundesliga. The hosts want to recover from the 2-0 away defeat to Mainz, while the visitors have the wish to build on the important home win against Eintracht Frankfurt (3-0). Augsburg sit at the moment at the 13th place of the table, while Leverkusen are four places and three points above them. Both opponents count two wins and two draws at their four league games in 2017. Augsburg run a 2-2-1 record at their last five home league games, while Leverkusen have won just two of their last five league games on the road (2-1-2).
Left back Stafylidis is rated as doubtful for the hosts, while the trio of Finnbogason, Caiuby and Callsen-Bracker remains out injured. Leverkusen will definitely be without the injured defender Tah and the suspended Toprak and Calhanoglu. Have in mind that the two opponents stuck at the 0-0 draw at “Bay Arena”, when they met for the first round of the current league.
