Augsburg vs Hertha Berlin
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 7 November 2020
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: WWK Arena.
Fuggerstadter have been one of the most consistent teams in the competition, and they have carved themselves a spot in the top-most tier. They have lost just twice all through this league campaign, and the defeats had come against Leipzig, and Leverkusen – two of the best teams in the competition.
On the other hand, Die Alte Dame have been on a cliff-dive ever since their opening game. After that win against Werder Bremen, they have remained winless, and have conceded goals in plenty.
In fact, such has been their struggles that they conceded five goals in a single DFB Pokal fixture against a team from the lower division.
On top of that, Heiko Herrlich’s men have also consistently scored goals against this opponent, and even registered a huge win the last time these two clashed horns at this ground.
Likely, expect Augsburg to have the upper hand this Saturday.
