Hannover 96 vs Augsburg
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 10 March 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: HDI-Arena (Hannover).
Hannover 96 have lost two on the bounce without scoring a goal against the likes of Borussia Monchengladbach and Eintracht Frankfurt and they will be hoping to get their campaign back on track on Saturday against Augsburg at HDI-Arena. Fuggerstadter won’t come into the match in much higher spirits either after falling 0-2 at home to Hoffenheim seven days ago.
This loss has destroyed Augsburg’s hopes of the European football next term and it has certainly affected the atmosphere in the dressing room ahead if the trip to Hannover. Much like their counterparts, Manuel Baum’s men have been struggling for goals recently as they’ve only netted a single in last four league matches.
Furthermore, Fuggerstadter have a poor record on the road where they’ve only picked up two points from last five Bundesliga matches. Given that the Reds have only lost two of last eight home outings in the division, we can find the value in backing Hannover 96 to clinch the victory at 2.30 odds here.
The main reason for Augsburg’s drop in form lies in the injury of their top scorer Alfred Finnbogason who holds the fourth place in the league’s top goalscorers list with 11 to his name so far in the campaign. The Icelandic forward will skip the trip to Hannover as well and we can hardly see Augsburg on the scoresheet on Saturday.
