In-form Bayer Leverkusen would host Augsburg in this league game with hopes of continuing the fine run of form that has seen them win their last four consecutive games in all competition.
Augsburg is currently 11th on the Bundesliga table and they have remained inconsistent for much of this season.
The visitors have lost three of their last five league games and they come here 10 points off the relegation playoff zone, they would be keen to avoid another loss in this game.
Leverkusen has been in fine form this season even though they have been inconsistent at some point.
They have won four and lost one of their last five league games ahead of this game. They are 9 points off the top of the league and two points off the top three and this should be a chance they cannot pass up.
Moussa Diaby and Karim Bellarabi would miss this game for the hosts, while Sergio Cordova is the major injury absentee for the visitors.
