Hamburger vs Augsburg: Predictions from LeagueLane
Kicking off the new season with three points would mend the wounds from the recent DFB Pokal failures, so both teams are in the same position. HSV had one of the leakiest defenses in the previous season and they are likely to concede. However, their attack is sharp and Both teams to score could be a valuable choice here.
