Hoffenheim Prediction – Can Hoffenheim bounce back?

After three matches without a win in the Bundesliga, which includes two defeats, Friday night’s hosts, Hoffenheim will be desperate to return to winning ways when they entertain Augsburg at their PreZero Arena.

Recent heavy defeats to Mainz 5-1 and a 3-1 loss to RB Leipzig were either side of a disappointing 1-1 draw with lowly Fortuna Dusseldorf, but Hoffenheim have another chance to rectify things when they hold home advantage on Friday night.

8th placed Hoffenheim have produced mixed results at home though so far this season which is reflected in their overall home record which stands at 3-1-3 10/14 and includes recent wins over Schalke 2-0 and a 3-0 win over second from bottom Paderborn, but also includes defeats to Borussia Moenchengladbach and Mainz.

The hosts have held the upper hand in previous exchanges against Augsburg though as Hoffenheim have won 6 of the last 8 encounters overall.

Augsburg Prediction – Can Augsburg extend unbeaten run?

The visitors bring a 4-match unbeaten run into this Friday night clash against Hoffenheim which they’ll be hoping can bring them some good fortune when they make their way to the PreZero Arena, and in turn halt Hoffenheim’s previous dominance.

Augsburg have won 3 of their last 4 matches overall in the Bundesliga which were victories over Paderborn, Hertha Berlin and Mainz, along with a draw against Cologne, but while results at home have been reasonable so far this season, their form away from home still requires further attention.

An away record of 1-3-3 7/15 includes just the one win on the road which came in the shape of a 1-0 win away at second from bottom outfit, Paderborn, while the bigger picture shows that Augsburg have registered just 2 away wins out of their last 19 matches on the road in the Bundesliga.

It’s this poor run of results on the road which could be the difference here.

 

Key-Facts – Hoffenheim vs Augsburg

  • Hoffenheim have won the last 3 meetings on the trot against Augsburg
  • Augsburg have registered just 2 away wins out of their last 19 matches
  • Hoffenheim have won 6 of the last 8 encounters overall against Augsburg

 

Betting Tips Verdict

Hoffenheim should therefore edge this one but use the handicap on the hosts.
