Augsburg vs Paderborn
Germany – 1. Bundesliga
Date: Wednesday, 27 May 2020
Kick-off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: WWK Arena (Augsburg).
Steffen Baumgart’s men are placed dead last in the table, and they also are new entrants to this competition – after having been promoted from the 2.Bundesliga the last summer. On the contrary, Heiko Herrlich’s men are at home and are experienced in this top flight, and they also have a good h2h record in recent years. As such, expect an Augsburg win this match-day.

Augsburg vs Paderborn Prediction
Herrlich’s men recorded a 0-3 win on the road the last match-day, against Schalke. The hosts, despite being one of the better teams in the league, had no answer to the incredible performance by Herrlich’s men. The visitors scored their first goal in the opening five minutes itself, and added two more later in the closing stages of the match-up.
Meanwhile, Baumgart’s men registered a 1-1 draw at home the prior game week, against Hoffenheim. Both goals had come in the first ten minutes of the fixture, and thereafter proceedings were a bit silent.
As things stand this Wednesday, Baumgart’s men are too much of an underdog. Not only are they new into this league, but they are struggling to cope up with the intense demands of the competition as well. As of now, they are placed bottom-most in the table, and rightfully so.
They have seven matches remaining till the end of the season, and need to make up a deficit of nine points to avoid relegation. Note that all through their campaign, they had managed a total of 18 points. On the other hand, Herrlich’s men had won their latest match-up 3-0, and have lost just five times at home all this season.
Going on, Herrlich’s men had recorded four of the last five h2h wins, and at this venue, they have a 100% winning record against this foe this past decade, and during this period have not conceded a single goal as well.
Taking into account these stats, it’s estimated that Augsburg are about to deliver a winning performance this Wednesday.
