Hertha BSC vs Augsburg
Germany – Bundesliga
Date: Saturday, 28 April 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK
Venue: Olympiastadion Berlin (Berlin).
Davie Selke’s impressive form inspired Hertha’s back-to-back wins over Koln and Eintracht Frankfurt. Can the Old Lady make it three on the bounce on Saturday when they host Augsburg in the capital? A win here could further increase their chances of potentially breaking into the top six in the league ladder and earning the right to play Europa League football next year.
Such spots are five points away at the moment, but Hertha’s form promises a decent challenge in the final three games of the campaign. As for the visitors, they also showed improvements in their game in recent weeks, particularly when it comes to their defensive line. Fuggerstadter held their net untouched in three of last four Bundesliga matches and they will come into this in high spirits after beating Mainz 05 2-0 last Sunday at WWK Arena.

Interestingly, none of last nine head to head games between these two sides offered three or more goals.
Hertha BSC vs Augsburg: Prediction
Both teams will come into the match high on confidence after clinching clean sheet wins last weekend. Knowing that goals are not quite common for their head to head matches, we’d not be surprised to see another low-scoring contest with defensive lines dominating on Saturday. You can back the Under 2.50 goals bet at the odds of 1.66 here.
Four of last six games Hertha played at home ended without a winner and none of these ties produced three or more goals. We thus see a huge value in backing the draw at 3.30, while braver punters can even try with the goalless draw at the sky-high 8.50 odds.
