FCA will welcome RB Leipzig to the WWK ARENA on Tuesday night to kick off a very busy week of football. The game between the sixth and seventh placed teams in the Bundesliga will kick off at 20:30 CEST. Here are the most important facts ahead of the game.
Best ever start to a season: This is the first time in their history that FCA have got seven points after the first four Bundesliga matchdays.
In form full back: Philipp Max was involved in both of Augsburg’s goals in their 2-1 win over Frankfurt (goal and an assist), and has now been part of three of FCA’s past five goals that they have scored.
Brief history: Tonight’s fixture will only be the fifth time that these two sides have met in both of the club’s histories. FCA have won two cup ties against Leipzig away from home, while last season’s league fixtures ended in a draw and an away loss for Augsburg.
Big loss for Leipzig: After his red card against Gladbach in which he was sent off for a high footed challenge on Christoph Kramer, Naby Keita will miss tonight’s game in Augsburg.
Reunion: Rani Khedira arrived at FCA in the summer after his successful transfer from RB Leipzig. He represented the Sachsen club 57 times.
