Augsburg vs Paderborn Prediction & Betting tips
Augsburg will play Paderborn at home on Wednesday evening and can go into the game with a good feeling after their 3-0 win at Schalke. In the relegation battle, the victory provided a relief after a long phase in which little was achieved.
Before the game Augsburg vs. Paderborn indicate the odds that the hosts are favored by the bookmakers. And indeed, Augsburg does not only seem to have an advantage over the guests when looking at the Bundesliga table, the shape also speaks for the Fuggerstadt residents.
But back to the table. The host from Augsburg is six points ahead of the relegation place, Paderborn six points behind 16th place. While Augsburg is not yet saved, Paderborn does not have to bury his head completely in the sand. However, it will be very difficult to keep the class.
Above all, the swing from the Schalke game, which was characterized by an enormous tactical discipline, speaks for Augsburg. For this reason, before the game Augsburg vs. Paderborn our forecast that the host will win the game and take an important step towards relegation.
It was like a liberation, shortly after the bitter 1: 2 defeat against VfL Wolfsburg. On Sunday afternoon Augsburg beat FC Schalke 04 3-0 – and they deserved it. The Schalke mistakes were used ice cold, Augsburg pressed well and put pressure on the opponent in the decisive moments.
But a swallow doesn’t make summer. The Augsburg season’s previous second half results are anything but good. The three on Schalke still provides the much-cited “air to breathe”, was the first win after four defeats in a row and was only the first game in 2020 that ended without conceding a goal.
Another interesting fact about the game at Schalke was that none of the three goals were scored by Florian Niederlechner. This is relevant because Niederlechner has so far been the Fuggerstädter’s best scorer with eleven goals.
So there are many factors that speak for the host, so before the duel Augsburg vs. Paderborn our forecast that there will be a home win. You can use the Livescore betting base to see whether this really works.
Augsburg should generally encourage the remaining program in the struggle for relegation. Paderborn, Cologne, Mainz, Hoffenheim, Dusseldorf, Leipzig – apart from the last game day, all games are feasible. However, this can also be a hurdle, because if there is no clarity until the direct duels against Mainz and Düsseldorf, the pressure factor increases.
That means: The game against Paderborn is extremely important for Augsburg. Against an opponent who is known to play very aggressively, Augsburg should concentrate on a good and precise game structure, so as not to fall into pressing traps. However, this did not happen too often, as evidenced by the poor record of 54 goals conceded in 27 games.
There is little news in terms of personnel at Augsburg. Heiko Herrlich can draw on a plentiful supply, his personnel decisions against Schalke – for example putting Baier on the bench – have proven their worth. Now it’s all about finding the right mix against Paderborn, who plays differently than Schalke. Sarenren Bazee, who scored as a joker against the Royal Blues, has a very good chance of playing in the first eleven.
If Paderborn is characterized by something this season, it is by a mentality of not giving up. The team of coach Steffen Baumgart started the season as a gross outsider, as a team of the “nameless”. However, it did quite well to annoy one or the other favorite.
You can buy little for these laurels, the reality is the relegation battle and there the guest is in a precarious situation. Before the game Augsburg vs. The odds do not indicate to Paderborn that the chances of the guests winning are very high.
The two games after the Corona break were solid, in the 0-0 win against Düsseldorf Paderborn was lucky several times, against Hoffenheim there was somehow more than 1-1. But this is exactly the problem: Paderborn often keeps up, often has some good chances, but wins too rarely. Four wins of the season in 27 games are not enough.
In many phases of the season, Paderborn was characterized by the same pattern: high pressing, many ball wins, quick attacks. But the balance was missing. The result was that many games were clearly lost in the end, because the team was unable to bring their game to rest and take a breath in between.
Paderborn has been without a win for eight games, and in 2020 only a “triple” was successful. That is too little, especially since last weekend the competition also scored again, for example opponents Augsburg, but also Werder Bremen. Paderborn is already lacking in efficiency throughout the season, but at the moment there is also a certain lack of dynamism, so that the offensive is idle at times.
This is another factor why before the game Augsburg vs. Our tip from Paderborn is that the hosts will decide the game for themselves. A defeat in a table would mean that the gap to the possibly saving 16th place for Paderborn is still at six points – at least.
At least coach Steffen Baumgart can fall back on a large part of his squad. Sven Michel, who was still missing, is again an option for the offensive.
