Hoffenheim vs Augsburg
Date: 20th May 2017
Kick off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar-Arena.
Hoffenheim and Augsbrug will come in the last round’s game with completely different ambitions.
The hosts will want to complete a fabulous campaign with a victory which might secure them the third position and the direct qualification to the group stage of Champions League, while the visitors hope for points which would save them from playing the relegation playoffs.
It is not hard to conclude that the hosts will be heavy favourites to snatch points on the home pitch.
WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar-Arena has been a fortress as nobody managed to claim three points from the visit to Sinsheim in this term of Bundesliga.
Julian Nagelsmann’s side has been on a tremendous run of nine consecutive wins on the home patch and they will come in the game after netting as many s five goals past Werder Bremen last weekend at Weserstadion.
Manuel Baum’s side actually helped Hoffenheim to keep their chances of reaching the third position at the end of the season by holding Borussia Dortmund to a 1-1 draw last weekend on the home court.
Augsburg are undefeated in last three outings, but they have a horrendous record on the road having lost four on the trot by two goals or more before a 1-1 draw with Gladbach away from WWK Arena.
Hoffenheim vs Augsburg: Head to head
It was very hard to separate the two sides historically, but Hoffenheim have been the dominant team in the most recent period.
The hosts have three wins on the bounce in H2H clashes with Augsburg.
The encounter from the first part of the season has seen a 0-2 win for Julian Nagelsmann’s men at WWK Arena. Team’s best players Andrej Kramaric and Sandro Wagner were on target.
Hoffenheim vs Augsburg: Prediction
Even though the visitors are desperate to avoid a defeat and the relegation playoffs, the gulf in quality is just huge at the moment and we can’t see any other scenario but a convincing home win this Saturday at WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar-Arena.
You can also back the red-hot Croatian striker Andrej Kramaric to score anytime at 4/5.
