Hoffenheim vs Augsburg
Date: Saturday, 10 November 2018
Kick-Off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar-Arena (Sinsheim).
Hoffenheim continued to shine seven days ago when they bagged for goals in second consecutive Bundesliga affair. They stormed past in-form Bayer Leverkusen 1-4 at BayArena to make it three subsequent wins in the competition. The thread climbed them up to 7th in the ladder and they will no doubts head into Saturday’s home clash with Augsburg in the highest of spirits.
Joelinton notched three goals in last two league games for Die Kraichgauer and he could be a big factor here against Fuggerstadter as well. Apart from strong domestic displays, Julian Nagelsmann’s men showed a fantastic fighting spirit to come back from a two-goal deficit away at Lyon in mid-week’s Champions League action. The achievement is greater if we know they earned a point with a ten-man squad as Nuhu Kasim got sent off six minutes after the break.

Hoffenheim vs Augsburg: Prediction
The visitors had a chance to make it three wins on the trot in all competitions last weekend when they hosted recently-promoted Nurnberg at WWK Arena. However, Manuel Baum’s men were unlucky to concede n equalizer two minutes from time as it ended in a 2-2 draw.
Augsburg are still unbeaten in last four matches in all competitions though. They play attractive attacking football just as Hoffenheim (each of last three outings they played saw goals at both ends) which is why the Over 2.5 goals FT has to be a stand-out pick for us here.
Braver tipsters can try with Hoffenheim to win & BTTS at the odds of 2.62, while you can also back the hosts to net two or more goals as a banker pick at 1.44.
