This match has finished. To watch current games go to the sections Today's Football Predictions, Football Betting Prediction for Tomorrow or Football Predictions for the Weekend.

Two of last season's bottom-half Bundesliga sides clash during Saturday's curtain-raiser for the new campaign, as Union Berlin entertain Augsburg. Having finished five points and four places above their visitors this weekend, Union fancy their chances as a dark horse for European qualification in 2020-21.

It's important they remain consistent and perform against winnable opposition, especially given their early fixture schedule. How will they fare against an Augsburg side who slid towards relegation trouble last season but have drawn four of their six H2H meetings? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Union Berlin vs Augsburg Betting Tips

Second-half goals from Neven Subotic and Marcus Ingvartsen proved pivotal as Union were 2-0 winners against Augsburg back in January. It was their first win in six matches, though the bulk of those were played in the 2. Bundesliga a decade ago now.

With upcoming league fixtures against Borussia Monchengladbach, Mainz, Schalke and Freiburg, Urs Fischer has a winnable set of matches that his side must respond accordingly to.

They lost just one of their last five top-flight games post-lockdown in June (three wins, one draw). It's important they don't leave it too late to establish that kind of form during this season, with everyone improving too.

Having made a number of tidy signings, including Wolfsburg's Robin Knoche and Schalke forward Cedric Teuchert in recent months, they're going in the right direction. Augsburg by contrast, sold their best player over the last three seasons as Philipp Max departed for £7.2m to PSV.

They've added Wolfsburg's Felix Uduokhai (£8.1m) and Schalke winger Daniel Caligiuri (free) among others, but is that enough to avoid deja vu this season? Only time will tell. An early litmus test against Union awaits.

Union Berlin vs Augsburg Correct Score Predictions

This is a tricky fixture to predict, as their H2H meetings suggest a competitive, evenly-matched encounter where neither wants to lose.

There have been more draws (4) than outright victories after six meetings but who knows how either side will start the campaign? I'm going for BTTS as both conceded goals for fun last term and need to start better this season.
