Augsburg vs Hannover
Germany – 1. Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 16th March 2019
Kick-off at 14.30 UK/ 15.30 CET
Venue: WWK Arena (Augsburg).
Hannover seems to have accepted their fate of getting relegated to the second division at the end of the season.
With just nine rounds remaining, they are eight points off safety and lost the last four league games in a row.
Also, they are on the road against the 15th placed team in the league table, the last safe side in the competition as of now.
Augsburg will seldom get opportunities like this, and to secure their future in the league, they will go all in against these visitors.
Considering the 16th placed Stuttgart is pitted against Hoffenheim (a tough game for the former), Augsburg can go a long way in building a safe buffer to avoid a boot to 2.Bundesliga, with a win in this tie, which they will be surely targeting.

Augsburg vs Hannover 96 Prediction
Augsburg was unbeaten in their last two matches, and in six of their last ten home ties. Also, they are a considerable distance above Hannover in the league table, in terms of points, and has the additional home advantage to rely upon.
Moreover, Hannover lost their last four fixtures in succession, and seven of the last eight. On the road, the team is winless in their last 11 ties on the trot. The squad also tasted losses in eight of these.
Augsburg, considering they are going against a direct rival in terms of avoiding relegation, will take into account the advantage of obtaining the three points in this tie. Count on them to dominate this game from early on, and with the visitors low on morale, the job should be easy.
Hannover has conceded the most goals in the competition and is yet to record a win on the road. They are extremely on the back-foot, and Augsburg, who have scored two or more goals in four of their last five home ties, will easily record the first goal of this tie.
