As Augsburg and Hoffenheim kick off the weekend’s action on Friday night, two of the Bundesliga’s relegation candidates will be in action. With just two points separating the two teams in the table going into the match at the WWK Arena, they are neck and neck.
After the World Cup, Augsburg’s results have been incredibly polarized: two victories in two home matches, three losses in three away matches. It was important for them to get those two victories at home, though, as they had gone eight games without a league victory before the long break.
Even though they had only won once at home before the World Cup, they have improved at the WWK Arena since both of their recent victories. That contrasts sharply with their road performance, when Augsburg has conceded 10 goals in their last three losses.
This is an early relegation six-pointer since Mainz, who are a position above them, have a five-point lead over them and the bottom six have nearly totally split themselves off from the rest of the league.
Between 2003 and 2006, when the teams competed in the fourth division, Augsburg won all four of their encounters. Nevertheless, since their respective stratospheric ascent, Augsburg has dropped six of its last seven home Bundesliga games against Hoffenheim, all by a score of two goals or more.
Let’s check the latest picks, Bundesliga news, stats and Bundesliga expert picks for Augsburg vs Hoffenheim. We’ve plenty of Bundesliga predictions for you to consider.
The Fuggerstadter have given up 19 goals at home to Hoffenheim in seven encounters, but the visitors are in a very different position currently after a 4-0 loss here last season. Andre Breitenreiter was fired as Hoffenheim’s manager after they went on a nine-game losing streak that yielded only two points.
Upon his appointment, Pellegrino Matarazzo oversaw last week’s loss to Bayer Leverkusen. Yet given that he assisted Stuttgart in staying up last season, it is possible to be optimistic about the selection of their former assistant. To prevent Hoffenheim from sleepwalking into their first-ever relegation from the Bundesliga, he has a formidable challenge.
