Augsburg registered a 2-3 win on the road in the reverse fixture, and they also have a winning record in h2h clashes in the past two years. They also have a perfect winning record at home in 2023 so far.

How many goals can be expected?

The reverse fixture was a five-goal affair. Also, four of the past six h2h meetings at this venue had three or more goals.

Besides, the desperate Schalke will give absolutely everything on the pitch to climb over the relegation cut-off, and this looks like a good recipe for a high-scoring affair.

Will Both Teams Score in the match?

They might have the edge this weekend, but a clean sheet is not really expected of them.

Augsburg vs Schalke 04 Prediction

Schalke are placed second to last in the table, and are a contender to get relegated at the end of the campaign. They are also one of the worst teams on the road, with a single win so far in the campaign. And this sole victory came against the relegation-threatened Bochum.

On the other hand, Augsburg have a 100% winning streak at home in 2023, in all competitions.

Likely, Augsburg to Win would be a good pick at 2.20.

However, do note that Schalke are desperate to climb over the relegation cut-off. They also failed to score just once at this venue in h2h clashes since 2013. Moreover, Augsburg let in five goals in their latest league game alone.

As such, the Both Teams to Score bet looks appealing at 1.75.
