Augsburg vs Hoffenheim Prediction & Match Preview

FC Augsburg

Hoffenheim

03 April 2021 14:30 UK/ 15:30 CET Bundesliga WWK ARENA

Augsburg and Hoffenheim go head to head at WWK Arena in what is expected to be a close Bundesliga encounter. 

The Bavarians aim to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Freiburg, and three points from Saturday’s clash will see them escape the relegation zone. 

Keep in mind, though, that all Niederlechner, Civeja, Jensen, Finnbogason, and Iago are sidelined through injuries.

Hoffenheim, on the other hand, suffered yet another dip in form, with the team losing to both Stuttgart and Mainz in the previous two league fixtures, and, no doubt, they are eager to grab something from the WWK Arena clash. 

Anyhow, a close encounter is on the cards, and we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw. 

All Stafylidis, Nordtveit, Geiger, Bicakcic, and Hubner are likely to miss the game through injuries for the visiting team.

Team News:

Hoeness is expected to make just one change to the Augsburg team, with Mads Pedersen likely to replace Robert Gumny at left-back, with the Dane back to full fitness after a muscle injury.

It means that there will once again be no place for Reece Oxford, who has played in all but one of Augsburg's eight wins this season, but has been sacrificed since Hoeness switched to a back four.

Tobias Strobl spent five years at Hoffenheim before departing in 2016 and has missed just one game for Augsburg this season; he will partner Rani Khedira, brother of Sami, in holding midfield.

Only four players have scored more Bundesliga goals than Andrej Kramaric this season so Hoffenheim will be hopeful that the Croatian is available after he picked up an ankle injury on international duty.

After failing to help England Under-21s get out of their group at the European Championships, Ryan Sessegnon will be keen to win his spot back in the side after dropping to the bench against Mainz.

Augsburg possible starting lineup:
Gikiewicz; Framberger, Gouweleeuw, Uduokhai, Pedersen; Strobl, Khedira, Caligiuri, Benes, Richter; Hahn

Hoffenheim possible starting lineup:
Baumann; Vogt, Grillitsch, Richards; Kaderabek, Rudy, Samassekou, John; Baumgartner; Bebou, Kramaric
