Werder Bremen vs Augsburg Prediction & Match Preview

Werder Bremen vs Augsburg
German Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 16 January 2021
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Weserstadion.

Fuggerstadter are placed 11th in the table, and are going through a struggling stretch at the moment.

They are conceding goals in plenty, and on the road, barring few fixtures against some of the worst teams in the league, they have not been impressive at all.

Meanwhile, the River Islanders are on a similar path as well. Disregarding friendlies, and DFB Pokal fixtures (against teams from lower divisions), their only wins in the league have come against squads placed in the relegation zone.

Going on, previous h2h encounters have also had goals in plenty over the years, and with either team being desperate to post the three points on the board, the expectation is that a high-scoring affair is on the cards.

Werder Bremen vs Augsburg: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The previous 14 overall wins were evenly split into seven each for each team.
  • 11 of the preceding 13 clashes had goals from both teams.
  • The former 13 straight match-ups had three or more goals.
  • The latest encounter had ended in a 2-1 win for Heiko Herrlich’s men at home.
  • At this venue, the hosts had registered a 3-2 win in the latest meeting.

Werder Bremen vs Augsburg Prediction

Florian Kohfeldt’s men were held to a 1-1 draw the last match-day on the road, by Leverkusen. In the meantime, Fuggerstadter lost 1-4 at home against Stuttgart.

The River Islanders have won just twice in their preceding 14 overall games, and one of the two wins had come against a team from the lower division in the DFB Pokal, while the other had come in a friendly match.

Note that they have also kept a total of just three clean sheets from their preceding 18 fixtures, and at home, they are on a four-match losing run.

They have also conceded two or more goals in their former four appearances at home, and their latest clean sheet here had come in the first week of October.

On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in 12 of their last 16 overall match-ups, and they had conceded two or more goals in five of their previous eight fixtures.

On the road, they have posted a total of just three league wins this whole season, and two of these had come against teams in the relegation zone.

Suffice it to say that, defense is not the strong suit for either of these squads. On top of that, preceding h2h encounters over the years have also had goals in plenty.

Taking into account these observations, expect a goal-fest this weekend.
