The list of injured players for Augsburg keeps growing, with Tobias Strobl, Fredrik Winther, Fredrik Jensen, Andre Hahn, Rafal Gikiewicz, Felix Uduokhai, Reece Oxford, Niklas Dorsch, Noah Sarenren Bazee, and Felix Uduokhai all doubtful on Saturday.
Maassen must thus continue using the dynamic lineup that has given him some success in previous weeks.
Peter Gulasci, the first-choice goalkeeper for Leipzig, ruptured his cruciate ligament against Celtic earlier this month, rendering him ineligible for the foreseeable future.
The journey 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 doubtful owing to a wrist ailment and a sickness, respectively.

Augsburg 2-1 RB Leipzig
Augsburg are currently 12th in the league. Despite losing their last two games, they have won three of their previous five league games. Enrico Maassen, the manager, has his work cut out for him, as RB Leipzig won’t be an easy opponent.
On the other side, RB Leipzig are two points in front of Augsburg and are now ranked 10th in the league. In their last five league contests, they have won three.
This season, RB Leipzig did not get off to the best of starts, and Domenico Tedesco was fired as manager due to his team’s poor play. It should be a close game, and Augsburg could knick this by a goal.
