In the following round of matches for the 2023–24 Bundesliga season, Augsburg will face Hoffenheim inside the WWK Arena on Saturday.
The home team is off to a great start under new manager Jess Thorup following a generally disappointing season. In their most recent match, they drew 1-1 with bottom-place Koln, earning just one point thanks to goals from Phillip Tietz in the opening half and heroics from goalie Finn Gilbert Dahmen in the latter part of the game. Augsburg has 12 points from 10 matches, good for mid-table position in 10th place. When they compete this coming weekend, they’ll be hoping to maintain their improved form and continue moving up the table. Their biggest letdown might have been their 2-0 loss to Unterhaching, a lower division team, in the DFB-Pokal first round, a competition in which Augsburg has never advanced past the semifinals in their entire existence. But for a team of their caliber, merely surviving is the primary goal, so when they face Hoffenheim on Saturday, the Dane and his team will see a chance to put even more separation between themselves from the bottom 3.
Hoffenheim, on the other hand, has had inconsistent performances recently in the league, but they still have optimism of finishing the season with continental football. In their most recent game, they overcame a two-goal deficit to defeat high-flying Bayer Leverkusen 3-2, only for their opponents to get the third and decisive goal 20 minutes from the end. After spending most of the previous season fighting to avoid relegation, Matarizzo was appointed manager in February to keep Die Kraichgauer afloat, they will be happy to have secured a Europa League qualifying berth after 10 games. They have won 3 and lost 3 of their previous 6 games, which is understandable given how young they are as a team under the previous Stuttgart manager. Nevertheless, they are obviously still inconsistent.
