Augsburg vs Freiburg
Date: Sunday, 30 September 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK 18:00 CET
Venue: WWK Arena (Augsburg).
Augsburg gained a massive confidence-boost by holding the defending champions Bayern Munich to a 1-1 draw away at Allianz Arena on Tuesday evening. Such result came literally out of nowhere as Fuggerstadter have previously lost back-to-back fixtures against Mainz and Werder Bremen conceding five goals along.
Can the hosts capitalize on a massive point from Munich and pick up their second win of the season on Sunday afternoon when they are set to drop the curtain on the Matchday No 6 against Freiburg?
The visitors will, however, also enter the outing in high spirits following back-to-back wins over Wolfsburg and Schalke 04. They broke into the top half with such victories which also came suddenly after the team took just one point in three opening games of the new campaign.
Augsburg vs Freiburg: Head-to-head
Freiburg are undefeated in last four head to head games against Fuggerstadter.
They bagged five goals in two H2H matches from last season (3-3 and 2-0).
As many as 5 of 10 H2 clashes at WWK Arena ended without a winner.
Freiburg only managed to see off Fuggerstadter once in ten away games over the course of history.
Augsburg vs Freiburg: Prediction
Manuel Baum is still without the main striker Alfredh Finbogasson who is yet to make his maiden appearance in the new season. The attacking line produced just one goal in his absence, but goals came frequently from behind as Augsburg still managed to find the back of the net on seven occasions in five games so far.
Baum’s problems are connected to the lack of stability at the back given the hosts shipped eight goals. Freiburg also play attacking-minded football and we’d really not be surprised to witness a goal fest here. The visitors shipped nine goals in four games before beating Schalke 1-0 on Tuesday evening at Schwarzwald-Stadion.
You can back goals at both ends at the sky-high 1.95 odds here. Since the visitors have been struggling for results on travels last season, we will also back the home win at the same 1.95 as an alternative betting option.
