Freiburg vs Augsburg: Preview and Predictions

Freiburg vs Augsburg
German Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 12 May 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Schwarzwald-Stadion, Freiburg im Breisgau.

A win over the rock-bottomed Koln in the previous home tie moved Freiburg three points above the drop zone, but they quickly returned to the old habits falling 3-1 away at Borussia Monchengladbach last weekend to fear for their Bundesliga destiny coming into the final day. Streich’s side still have it all in their own hands being three points above Wolfsburg at the relegation playoffs spot, but they can’t afford da loss here with a much weaker goal difference than the Wolves.

Augsburg have been playing hot and cold throughout the season which is good enough only for the mid-table finish. They can go nowhere in the league ladder regardless of the outcome of this tie, but they will be dangerous in the final third with the star man Alfredh Finnbogason back in the quad after a lengthy injury.

Freiburg vs Augsburg: Head-to-head

  • Freiburg will rely on the impressive H2H record they have against Augsburg in matches at Schwarzwald-Stadion.
  • The hosts won seven and lost just two of nine home matches against Fuggerstadter.
  • Both teams scored in each of last three H2H meetings between the two teams.
  • This term’s clash offered a six-goal thriller, ending up with teams sharing spoils in a 3-3 draw.

Freiburg vs Augsburg: Prediction

The H2H trend and Freiburg’s imperative to get at least a point from this match might suggest a success for the home outfit, but getting the result against Augsburg will by no means be an easy task for the locals here. Fuggerstadter are undefeated in last five league games on the road and their attacking line once again looks to be lethal with Finnbogason back in the squad. The visitors not to lose is a bet worth trying at the odds of 1.85.

Freiburg lost six of last seven league matches, failing to score in four of these, meaning that braver punters could even try with Augsburg to win at the sky-high 4.00 odds.

  • Augsburg or Draw Double Chance @ 1.85
