Hamburger vs Augsburg Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview
Match between HSV and Augsburg will be interesting-one and is great choice to watch and to bet on. In their last six matches, both teams recorded three wins. Their last match won Hamburger SV 1:0. Average number of goals is two but four of their last six matches had only one goal.
HSV had season that they would like to forget as soon as possible. After five rounds they changed manager because they were underachieving only to find themselves nailed to the bottom for next seven rounds. In last round they were in relegation zone and only because they managed to win against Wolfsburg in eighty-eight minute of the match, they finished in safe fourteenth place. Friendlies they played in this month do not bring hope that they learned anything. Three losses and three draws is their achievement. HSV is already eliminated from German football cup by Osnabruck which play in third tier. We will give them time to find their play because Borussia Monchengladbach’s Andre Hahn, Leverkusen’s Kyriakos Papadopoulos and Kaiserslautern’s Julian Pollersbeck joined the club and all eyes are on them to see if they are able to make Hamburger SV start playing some serious football.
Augsburg finished last season in thirteenth place, only one point ahead of Wolfsburg which had to play relegation play-off match. Manuel Baum is current manager who came in December 2016 to replace Dirk Schuster. However, he managed to put the team in even lower position. Four rounds before the end of the season, Augsburg were in sixteenth place and only because they drew three matches and won one game, they survived. Let us be honest, those draws were quite something because it is not the easiest task to remain undefeated against Dortmund and Hoffenheim. The biggest name to sign for Augsburg is HSV’s Michael Gregoritsch who joined them for 5 M €. Rani Khedira left RB Leipzig as free agent to strengthen Augsburg’s defense. Some four months ago, Augsburg destroyed Hamburger SV 4:0 and we are sure that HSV will try to strike back.
