Bundesliga Matchday 2 Betting Tips – Bayer 04 Leverkusen
Bayer Leverkusen will be looking to get its first win of the season after a somewhat lacklustre display on the opening weekend.
Gerardo Seoane will have to do some tinkering with the team for its first home-game after losing a couple of his key personnel. Skipper Lukás Hrádecky will be missing the next 3 games after picking up a straight red so Andrey Lunev is expected to take his place in goal. Jonathan Tah and Edmond Tapsoba will be the centre-back pairing with Jeremie Frimpong and Piero Hincapié in the full-back positions.
Robin Andrich is also ruled out for the next couple of weeks after picking up an injury in the previous game therefore Charles Aránguiz and Exequiel Palacios are going to be the two holding-midfielders of the side. Moussa Diaby started the last match on the left-wing while Karim Bellerabi operated down the right-flank. Meanwhile, Kerem Demirbay was deployed in the no.10 position with Patrik Schick as the lone striker.

Bundesliga Matchday 2 Betting Tips – FC Augsburg
Following a heavy defeat to start off the new season, Augsburg looks destined for a long relegation-battle especially with its lack of cutting-edge up front.
Enrico Maaßen has to lift his side quickly after a disappointing beginning at his new club but it will be a stiff challenge to get anything from this game. Rafal Gikiewicz will be the goalkeeper with Jeffrey Gouweeleuw, Maximilian Bauer, Felix Uduokhai forming the 3-man central-defensive partnership. Daniel Caligiuri will take the wing-back spot on the right while Iago will be taking the left-flank.
Niklas Dorsch will be absent until November due to a broken ankle therefore Elvis Rexhbecaj will continue as the anchorman of the team with Carlos Gruezo and Arne Maier as the other two central-midfielders of the side. Augsburg lost its top-scorer from last season and has not found a fitting replacement as yet, therefore Ermedin Demirovic and Florian Niederlechner could be used as the centre-forward pair in this match.
