Date: Saturday, 19 September 2020
Kick-off at 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET
Venue: Stadion An der Alten Försterei (Berlin).
Union Berlin picked up 41 points from their 34 league appearances last season in the Bundesliga to finish as the 11th side in the mix. Die Eisernen capped that season with a 3-0 home win against the likes of Fortuna Dusseldorf in the schedule. However, they will play after a goalless draw in the DFB Pokal Cup, which they later won in the penalty shootout.
Augsburg was caught behind the host in the league table last term. With just 9 wins out of 34 games, they were at the 15th spot in the table. The visitor had just escaped relegation play-off in the campaign and ended the season with a 1-2 loss at home against RB Leipzig. They will visit on the back of a 0-7 win on the road against Eintracht Celle last time out in the DFB Pokal tournament.

Union Berlin vs Augsburg Prediction
The match is sizing to be a home win in full-time since the host is the favorite to win in the clash. Even so, the visitor cannot be taken for granted and is also capable of at least denying two points to the home team. So, a double chance favoring Union Berlin will probably be the best bet in the fixture.
The reason to back the home team for a win is because of their home ground advantage in the game, which will help them create more opportunities in ninety minutes. Along with that, the host had a better position in the Bundesliga table last term with a five-point lead over the visiting side.
Besides, Die Eisernen is on a two-game winning streak at home in their records. Also, the host has been unbeaten in their h2h meetings with Augsburg since 2011. With that advantage in the game, Urs Fischer and his men will probably win either of the halves at Berlin.
Augsburg is on a winless trail in their league records from the last season. They finished their last term form with three winless games in a row comprising two losses in it. With their poor away form, they will hardly trouble the host’s defense, which is why backing the home team seems like an ideal choice in the encounter.
