TSG Hoffenheim vs FC Augsburg
Date: Saturday, 14th October 2017
Kick-off at 14:30 UK / 15:30 CET
Venue: Wirsol Rhein-Neckar Arena, Sinsheim.
The two sides that suffered a defeat prior to the international break will square off as Hoffenheim welcome FC Augsburg. The visitors are outperforming themselves recently, while Hoffenheim enter this duel with the upcoming UEFA Europa League match on their mind.
Julian Nagelsmann has a difficult task ahead of the meeting with Augsburg – keeping him team focused on Bundesliga instead of Europa League. The unanticipated defeat they suffered from SC Freiburg certainly disrupted the atmosphere in the changing room but the victory against FC Augsburg could significantly improve the mood. Hoffenheim haven’t had any trouble in the attack as they tallied at least one goal in each of their last 7 games. They are also unbeaten on the home turf in the current season.
The visitors had an impressive run that was recently ended by Borussia Dortmund who defeated them with 1-2. Since BVB conceded only one goal until they collided with Augsburg, it is safe to say that Augsburg’s performance was quite solid. Finnbogasson netted four crucial goals for the visitors and he will be the main mark of Hoffenheim’s defense.
Hoffenheim vs Augsburg: Head-to-head
Hoffenheim are unbeaten against Augsburg in the last four outings. The latest ended without any goals scored but the hosts clinched the victory in the remaining three.
Hoffenheim vs Augsburg: Predictions
Hoffenheim’s defense is looking unexpectedly leaky, while Augsburg’s attack is surprisingly quite sharp. Therefore, we might see a high-scoring affair with both sides adding at least one goal. An early goal would open the game up which is probably taking the current circumstances when it comes to form of both teams.
