Hoffenheim vs Augsburg Prediction

Hoffenheim had to take on a tough customer the last match-day, and it expectedly ended in a loss. On the road against Leipzig, the team had no answer to some Timo-Werner-brilliance, and bowed down to a 3-1 scoreline.

In the meantime, Augsburg were at home the previous game week, and narrowly edged out Mainz with a 2-1 scorecard.

At present, form dictates that Augsburg hold the upper hand. The reason being, the team is on an unbeaten run of five games, of which four were wins, and remained invincible in eight of their last nine overall games as well.

On the road, they were unbeaten in their last five trips, and the only loss they suffered in the past seven trips was against Monchengladbach.

On the other hand, their opposite number are on a winless run of three games in overall fixtures, and were so in ten of their last fourteen home games.

Taking these factors into consideration, expect the in-form Augsburg to put forth a good performance, and avoid the loss at the least.

Coming to goals though, the home advantage will probably play a role in giving Hoffenheim some edge. Take note that Hoffenheim are on a scoring streak of nine straight games, and found the back of the net twice or more in six of their preceding nine match-ups.

At home, the team scored two or more goals in two of their last four match-ups, and most importantly, Hoffenheim have netted goals twice or more in nine of their previous eleven overall fixtures, and in nine of their last eleven h2h clashes in front of the home crowd.

Also, do note that, Hoffenheim recorded the previous six wins in face-to-face games, and have been unbeaten against this opponent since 2005 at this stadium.

Considering these observations, the scope for BTTS is very high this weekend in the Bundesliga.
