Hoffenheim vs Augsburg
England- Premier League
Date: Monday 7th December 2020
Kick off at 19:30 UK/ 20:30 CET
Venue: Rhein-Neckar-Arena (Sinsheim).
It hasn’t been the best of starts for Hoffenheim who have only won 2 of their 9 games played so far but a win could lift the club on the edges of a top 10 place depending on other results as they take on Augsburg at home on Monday night.
Hoffenheim have no victories from their last 5 games and have only picked up 3 points from their last 15 available. Last weekend they managed a 1-1 draw away to Mainz but Mainz are having a worse season than Hoffenheim presently.
Hoffenheim are in 13th place and at home they have won just 25% of their games. Their last home match ended in an exciting 3-3 draw against Stuttgart.
Augsburg are having a better season in 8th place but there are fine margins and in fact the club are only three points ahead of their hosts.
Augsburg have drawn their last two games coming into this one and overall recent form is not good with just 5 points earned from five games. On the road the clubs games have seen 50% of them end in draws.
Hoffenheim vs Augsburg: Head to Head
Last season this fixture saw six goals and ended 4-2 to Augsburg.
Hoffenheim have scored 9 goals past Augsburg in the last three league meetings.
There is a 70% chance to see over 2.5 goals.
Hoffenheim vs Augsburg: Prediction
We have two clubs both equal and the problem here is that both are lacking confidence. It will be interesting if we get to see many goals, as history says we might with both clubs needing the points it could be cautious.
We will back the home side to get the win because looking at Augsburg’s away games they simply have not been consistent enough and could really struggle on the road this season. It doesn’t matter if they are above Hoffenheim in the league there is nothing between the two teams on the pitch.
We will also back Christoph Baumgartner to score for the home side. He has tasted goals lately and is always a danger especially at home and will have a few good chances in this match.
Hoffenheim vs Augsburg: Bet Tips:
Hoffenheim to beat Augsburg at 1.80 (4/5)
Anytime goalscorer: Christoph Baumgartner of Hoffenheim at 2.75 (7/4).
