Previews: Bayer Leverkusen vs Augsburg

The 34th round of the Bundesliga will conclude with a match between Bayer Leverkusen and Augsburg on Saturday, May 18, in Leverkusen.

Bayer Leverkusen

No team in the history of the Bundesliga has ever been able to finish the season unbeaten. Throughout its amazing 50-match unbeaten streak across all competitions, Bayer has only drawn six times in 33 games while winning 27 of them. The team captained by Xabi Alonso obviously wants to continue winning—in the 29th round, they secured the German championship for the first time ever.

Against Bochum, Bayer won 5-0 on the road in the previous round of the Bundesliga, controlling the majority of the contest. Bayer had previously defeated Eintracht 5-1 with five goals in a single game.

This matchup with Augsburg will be Bayer’s last practice before two finals. Leverkusen will play Atalanta for the Europa League trophy on May 22, and Kaiserslautern in the German Cup final on May 25.


Augsburg is in a respectable tenth place as the season draws to a close. Originally anticipated to struggle for survival, Augsburg was in the relegation zone early in the season. However, they turned things around and were even considered a few rounds back as potential candidates for European qualification.
Over the past four games, Augsburg has only managed three goals while giving up twelve, failing to earn a single point. But the teams they faced, Stuttgart (0-1), Werder (0-3), Borussia Dortmund (1-5), and Eintracht (1-3), were formidable.
