Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Augsburg Prediction, Betting Tips and Match Preview for German Bundesliga clash on Saturday, 20 June 2020. Kick off 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET at the Merkur Spiel-Arena.
Flingeraner need to win both their remaining games if they are to extend their stay in the top flight for one more season. They do have an opportunity to qualify for the relegation play-offs, but that would be just playing with fire.
They need to secure their safety at the end of the regular schedule itself. This desperation of Flingeraner could be smartly exploited by Heiko Herrlich’s men. They need one more point to confirm their status as a safe team.
On top of that, Herrlich’s men have a good h2h record in recent years as well. Considering these factors, it’s thought that Augsburg will deliver the better performance this weekend. And due to the desperation of their counterparts, there’s a big possibility that the match-up will be a goal-fest.
Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Augsburg: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last time these two clashed on the pitch, Herrlich’s men won 3-0 at home.
- Three of the former four games saw Herrlich’s men posting wins.
- Four of the former six encounters saw Flingeraner conceding two or more goals.
- The guests are on a two-fixture winning run at this stadium.
- At this ground, the visitors have scored two or more goals in all clashes since 2010.
Fortuna Dusseldorf vs Augsburg: Prediction
Flingeraner recorded a 2-2 draw on the road the last match-day, against the Red Bulls. Despite having to settle with a single point, it was a moral win for the guests. After trailing for 2-0 till late into the second half, they slotted in two goals in the dying three minutes of the fixture.
Meanwhile, Herrlich’s men lost 1-3 at home against Hoffenheim the past game week. The hosts could have made their position safe with a victory. However, the visitors were just too strong.
As things stand, Herrlich’s men have the upper hand this weekend. They need just a single point from the remaining two fixtures, while their counterparts need to win both of their two games. This will surely force them to go on the offensive, leaving their half of the pitch vulnerable.
Herrlich’s men just need to defend properly, and wait till Flingeraner make any mistakes (which they surely will due to the pressure they are under). Moreover, Herrlich’s men had won the reverse fixture with a 3-0 scoreline, and they have a 100% winning record in h2h clashes at this venue since 2010.
Considering these stats, it’s more than evident that Augsburg are about to deliver a dominating performance, and they do have favorable conditions to turn this into a high-scoring match as well.
