Leverkusen is still trying to settle into the season but claimed its first league win against bottom club Mainz last weekend. Peter Bosz' team followed up with a 6-2 win over Nice in the Europa League on Thursday, so will hope to keep the momentum going. Augsburg, which is coached by former Leverkusen coach Heiko Herrlich, started the season strongly and had its first defeat to league leader Leipzig last weekend. Leverkusen hasn't lost in 18 games against Augsburg and has won the last four meetings between the sides. In Group C, Bayer Leverkusen produced the biggest win of the early games by beating Nice 6-2. Nadiem Amiri and Lucas Alario scored early first-half goals five minutes apart for Leverkusen, while substitute Karim Bellarabi netted two and 17-year-old forward Florian Wirtz came off the bench to complete the rout. In a game between teams from two countries whose domestic leagues have been interrupted due to high levels of coronavirus infections, Israel's Hapoel Beer-Sheva beat Czech Republic's Slavia Prague 3-1.
