Augsburg vs Union Berlin
Germany – 1. Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 24 August 2019
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: WWK Arena (Augsburg).
Augsburg were in for a humiliating 5-1 defeat in their opener on the road against the runners up of last season Borussia Dortmund. Despite taking the initial lead with a goal in the opening minutes, Augsburg crumbled soon after, as their foes managed to grab a level within two minutes and then four more by the end of the ninety minutes.
The Bundesliga debutants took on the second runners up of the previous edition RB Leipzig in their first-ever match in the top flight and unsurprisingly lost the clash with four unanswered goals in the back of their net.
Although neither side showed any signs of promise to speak of last week, Augsburg are likely to walk away with the bragging rights in this one, especially with home advantage favoring them.

Augsburg vs Union Berlin Prediction
Union Berlin made it out of the second division for the first time this season and were not exposed to top-flight football on a regular basis all these years. It certainly showed in their opening game as well which saw them admit defeat by a heavily one-sided scoreline.
On the other hand, even though Augsburg were one of the worst teams in the Bundesliga last time out, it needs saying that they did just enough to avoid relegation. Additionally, five of the eight wins that they did secure last time out came from their clashes on home soil.
Considering that Union berlin have not got the better of hosts in their previous visits here either, expect Augsburg to be the ones to come away with all the three points in the bag.
Neither side have kept a clean sheet in their last two matches here. Taking into account that Augsburg have conceded in their previous two games here as well, it looks certain that Berlin will be finding the back of the net along with Augsburg in this one.
