Germany – Bundesliga | Augsburg VS Bayer Leverkusen; Saturday, 13 January at 22:30 GMT +8

Augsburg, previously predicted to be relegated from the Bundesliga, has significantly improved before the Christmas break, with only one defeat in ten games, putting them eight points clear of the red zone.

Bayer Leverkusen has a strong campaign, with Xabi Alonso’s team leading the German top flight with four points, while Die Werkself have a strong European season, finishing top of their Europa League group with six wins out of six matches.

Ermedin Demirović, Mads Pedersen, Reece Oxford, Raphael Framberger, and Tomas Koubek are all unavailable for Augsburg’s Jess Thorup due to suspensions, muscle injuries, cruciate ligament ruptures, and elbow injuries, with Demirović serving a one-match ban.

Bayer Leverkusen will miss Victor Boniface due to an injury sustained during the AFCON match with Nigeria’s Super Eagles. Boniface, who has ten goals and seven assists this season, will be joined by Arthur and Timothy Fosu-Mensah, while Amine Adli, Edmond Tapsoba, and Odilon Kossounou are on international duty.

Goalkeeper: Finn Dahmen
