Reason For Hoffenheim vs Augsburg Betting Tips

  • Augsburg have lost just one of their last seven Bundesliga fixtures. 
  • Hoffenheim have failed to win each of their last three Bundesliga games, losing two and drawing one. 
  • Only RB Leipzig, Borussia Monchengladbach and Union Berlin have accumulated more points than Augsburg over the last six games. 

In-form Augsburg vs out-of-form Hoffenheim 

Hoffenheim are set to host Augsburg in the German Bundesliga’s Friday evening fixture this week. Hoffenheim will be hoping to end a run of poor form at home, having earned just one point in their last three Bundesliga games.

We expect Augsburg to present a formidable challenge for struggling Hoffenheim. In contrast to Hoffenheim, Augsburg are enjoying an impressive run of form at present. They have lost just one of their last seven Bundesliga games. They are also undefeated in their last four Bundesliga fixtures. 

Hoffenheim are currently four points ahead of Augsburg in the Bundesliga table. However, Augsburg are ahead of Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga’s form table for the last six games. Only RB Leipzig, Borussia Monchengladbach and Union Berlin have earned more points than Augsburg over the last six games. We don’t believe any team will be looking forward to playing Augsburg given their current form.

This game is likely to be low scoring

We believe there are likely to be a low amount of goals scored in this contest. Both these teams have seen low-scoring games in recent weeks. Firstly, there have been under 2.5 goals scored in Augsburg’s last three Bundesliga away games. 

Furthermore, Augsburg have scored over 1.5 goals in just one of their seven Bundesliga away games. Only Cologne and Union Berlin have scored fewer away goals than Augsburg this season. 

Meanwhile, there have also been under 2.5 goals scored in two of Hoffenheim’s last three Bundesliga home games. As well as that, Hoffenheim have scored under 1.5 goals in each of their last three Bundesliga games. They have also scored under 1.5 goals in four of their last six home Bundesliga fixtures. 

Poor defending all round

We don’t expect either of these teams to score freely in this game. However, we also feel neither team are particularly likely to keep a clean sheet. Hoffenheim have conceded 14 goals over their seven home games this season. Only Paderborn have a worse home defensive record than Die Kraichgauer. Meanwhile, Augsburg have conceded 15 goals in their seven Bundesliga away games. Only Mainz, Fortuna Dusseldorf, and Cologne have conceded more away goals than them this season. 

Both teams have scored in 10 of Augsburg’s 14 Bundesliga games. Similarly, both teams have also scored in eight of Hoffenheim’s 14 Bundesliga games this season, including five of their last six fixtures. Augsburg’s recent form has been impressive. They will also be facing Hoffenheim at an opportune time, given their recent lack of form. We feel  Augsburg stand a good chance of taking a result from this Friday’s game, so Augsburg double chance is worth taking a look at for this fixture. 

We also feel a 1-1 draw is a likely result here. We expect this fixture to be low scoring; however, we also feel we are unlikely to see either of these two sides keep a clean sheet in this game, given Hoffenheim’s recent home defensive record and Augsburg’s recent away defensive record.
