Freiburg vs Augsburg Prediction & Match Preview

Freiburg vs Augsburg
Germany – 1. Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 21 September 2019
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Schwarzwald-Stadion (Freiburg).

Freiburg has made a great start to their campaign and rightfully have been rewarded with a podium spot at the moment. They won three of the total four fixtures so far and managed to score three goals in each of them. The only demerit in an otherwise great run has been their loss against Koln.

The loss must have really hurt as not only was the team a new entrant into the competition, but it also happens to be the sole victory for the squad so far.

As of now, Christian Streich’s men are placed above the defending champions Bayern, but taking into account an easier match-up for the Bavarians this match-day, the hosts will have to put forth a great performance to not lose their place.

Visitors Augsburg could make things worse, as they just have put an end to their winless run with an impressive 2-1 win over Frankfurt. But Martin Schmidt’s men do have the away handicap to deal with, and so far they have been not satisfactory on the road.

Freiburg vs Augsburg Prediction

Augsburg is on an embarrassing four-game losing run on the road. Not just that, but the team was winless in nine of the former ten road trips and was so in 17 of their prior 21 attempts away from home.

The squad also conceded a huge 18 goals from their last four road games alone and was winless in six of their previous seven overall fixtures as well.

On the other hand, the hosts of the day won four of their total five official encounters this season and lost just twice at home since February too. One of these losses were against Dortmund.

Moreover, h2h clashes too pick the hosts as favorites. 14 of the prior 17 overall h2h wins went to the sides that hosted the tie, and the last three straight meetings had home wins. In addition, disregarding a lone 2014 battle, the hosts have won every single h2h league encounter at this venue and scored twice or more in the last six straight meetings.

Taking into account these observations, the probable outcome is a convincing win for the hosts.
