Augsburg vs Schalke Prediction & Match Preview

Augsburg vs Schalke
German Bundesliga
Date: Sunday, 13 December 2020
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: WWK Arena.

The Royal Blues are easily the worst team in the whole competition, and are placed dead last in the table at the moment – deservedly so. They have scored the least number of goals of all the teams in the contest – just six so far, and embarrassingly they have let in the most as well.

They have conceded the most number of goals – 31, while not a single team has let in even 25 till now. Moreover, they also remain the only squad yet to post a win on the board.

Meanwhile, Fuggerstadter are a moderately good team in the German top flight, and are currently trying to break into the top-six of the table. They need a surplus of four points to get into that space.

However, the three teams above them have tough match-ups this weekend, and this opens a huge opportunity for Heiko Herrlich’s men.

Going on, Fuggerstadter also had recorded a compelling win in the latest h2h encounter – which had taken place just six months back.

Likely, expect Augsburg to have a huge upper hand this Sunday at the WWK Arena.

Augsburg vs Schalke: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The last time these two locked horns was back in May, and then Herrlich’s men registered a 0-3 victory on the road.
  • Seven of the former ten clashes had goals from both teams.
  • Five of the preceding seven encounters had three or more goals.
  • Not once have the hosts failed to score at this stadium since 2015.

Augsburg vs Schalke: Prediction

Fuggerstadter lost 3-1 on the road the last match-day, against Hoffenheim. In the meantime, Manuel Baum’s men lost 0-3 at home against Leverkusen.

Going on, the Royal Blues have a single win in all competitions since January of 2020, and this sole victory had come against a team from the lower division, in the DFB Pokal.

Do also note that they have a total of just two wins in the whole of this year.

On the other hand, their counterparts were unbeaten in 13 of their preceding 18 match-ups, and at home, they were invincible in four of their last six appearances. They had also scored two or more goals in three of their last six home matches.

Moving on, they also have a shot at improving their standing in the table considerably with a win this weekend.

As such, count on Augsburg to do their best on the pitch, and secure a victory.
