Augsburg’s injury list continues to grow, with Tobias Strobl, Fredrik Winther, Fredrik Jensen, Andre Hahn, Rafal Gikiewicz, Felix Uduokhai, Reece Oxford, Niklas Dorsch, Noah Sarenren Bazee and Felix Uduokhai all in doubt on Saturday.
Maassen must therefore continue to use the dynamic line-up that has given him some success in the previous weeks.
Peter Gulasci, Leipzig’s starting goalkeeper, tore his cruciate ligament against Celtic earlier this month, rendering him ineligible for the foreseeable future.
The trip to Augsburg is also off the table for Lukas Klostermann, Konrad Laimer and Dani Olmo. At the same time, Christopher Nkunku and Timo Werner are in doubt due to wrist ailments and illness, respectively.

Augsburg 2-1 RB Leipzig
Augsburg is currently ranked 12th in the league. Despite losing their last two games, they have won three of their previous five league games. Enrico Maassen, the coach, has a lot of work ahead of him, as RB Leipzig will not be an easy opponent.
On the other hand, RB Leipzig are two points ahead of Augsburg and are now in 10th place in the league. In their last five league games they have won three.
This season, RB Leipzig did not have the best start and Domenico Tedesco was fired as coach due to his team’s poor play. It should be a close match, and Augsburg could beat it with a goal.
