Match Preview and Predictions

  • Hoffenheim bravely recovered a point against Mainz last weekend, after becoming the first Bundesliga side this season to reach an overall tally of two red cards. However, they are still winless in seven league fixtures (D3, L4), and with no Bundesliga clean sheet this term (W2, D3, L4), this is their worst nine-game start to a top-flight campaign since 2015/16.
  • The hosts’ average of two goals per home league game is a positive, but they’ve only led one such fixture at the break (HT: W1, D2, L1), stunting their momentum. Late action is certainly possible though, as seven (70%) of ten second-half goals their Bundesliga matches produced here this campaign have come after the 75th minute.
  • Augsburg have scored six league goals out of 11 (54.55%) in that same late period, including an 80th minute equaliser against Freiburg last time out (Nov 28). Inconsistent thus far (W3, D3, L3), their matches won/lost have all been decided by two or three-goal margins either way.
  • Winning a paltry average of 1.75 corners per away league game so far, Augsburg are yet to score a league goal before the 40th minute on the road this term. They did so en route to a 4-2 Bundesliga win here last season, but that was their first competitive away win against Hoffenheim in 12 attempts.
  • Players to watch: Andrej Kramarić has netted ten competitive goals for Hoffenheim this term. Eight of those strikes came after the 40th minute, including five penalties.
  • Daniel Caligiuri has netted in each of Augsburg’s last two league away games, scoring the second goal of the game on both occasions.
  • Hot stat: Augsburg’s last ten Bundesliga matches have each produced under 1.5 first-half goals.
