Augsburg vs Schalke 04
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 5 May 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: WWK Arena (Augsburg).
Schalke 04 made it three games without a win on Saturday when they had to save a point at home against Borussia Monchengladbach. Die Konigsblauen still sit second in the league standings beings ix points above Bayer Leverkusen in fifth, meaning the Champions League anthem is almost guaranteed next year at VELTINS-Arena.
Nevertheless, Domenico Tedesco and his men will be hoping to save the second place in the remaining two games, and to do so they need to return on the winning ways on Saturday when they play Augsburg away at WWK Arena.
Fuggerstadter have been playing hot and cold throughout the season, but they will generally come into this high on confidence after claiming four points in last two league games. The team led by Manuel Baum bagged two goals past Mainz 05 and Hertha BSC each and they could get a nice chance to keep the fine attacking form going here against the struggling defensive line of Schalke 04’s.
Augsburg vs Schalke: Head-to-head
The head to head stats entirely favour Schalke who won eight, drew five and lost just one of 14 matches against Augsburg.
Die Konigsblauen bagged three goals in each of last two wins over Fuggerstadter.
Both teams scored in four of last five head to head matches.
Augsburg vs Schalke : Prediction
The high-scoring trend in H2H games could likely be continued here as Schalke have been fairly easy to break down lately. They shipped five goals in last two league games on the road even though the opposition included the bottom two sides of Hamburger SV and Koln. You can back goals at both ends at the sky-high 1.80 odds.
Additionally, the value is huge in the 3.00 odds offered for Augsburg to score two or more goals in the match and extend Schalke’s defensive crisis. They notched twice in each of last two league games and we just can’t resist such high price offered for them to make it three in a row.
