Hamburger SV vs FC Augsburg Prediction & Betting tips
On the 1. Matchday of the 1. Bundesliga, FC Augsburg is a guest at Hamburger SV. Last season, both teams have been able to keep up the line and this season, both teams will be primarily concerned with stabilizing themselves and keeping away from the relegation areas. We believe in a success of the Norddeutschen and have therefore decided us for a corresponding tip to ordinary odds.
Hamburger SV :
The last years were a regular roller coaster of the HSV’s supporters, because positive results always followed negative series. The people in charge have therefore taken a lot of money this summer and have strengthened the team with André Hahn (Gladbach), Julian Pollersbeck (Kaiserslautern), Rick van Drongelen (Sparta Rotterdam) and Bjarne Thoelke (Karlsruhe). The Kyriakos Papadopoulos, who had been most recently loaned, were also able to commit themselves firmly. With Matthias Ostrzolek and René Adler, only two regular members left the club. For Michael Gregoritsch the responsible persons even received € 5.50 million. On the first day, there will be a good chance of seeing the Austrian again, as he will be able to get the shoes for FC Augsburg in the future. The season starts from zero – nevertheless, positive mood can be talked, because the season preparation failed. In addition to two draws against Sparta Rotterdam (1: 1) and Espanyol Barcelona (1: 1), there were also defeats against Holstein Kiel (3: 5) and Antalyaspor (0: 2). In the first round of the DFB Cup, there was also an embarrassing 1: 3 at VfL Osnabrück – who had to play even a half-time. Coach Markus Gisdol will be without Aaron Hunt, Bjarne Thoelke and Mergim Mavraj on Saturday.
The preparations for the Fuggerstädter were a little better, as they were able to score victories over the SSV Ulm (3: 2) and Southampton (4-0) in the last few weeks. In addition, there was a defeat against Middlesbrough (1: 2) and a draw against Eindhoven (0-0). Just like the Hamburger SV, FC Augsburg also had to sail the first round of the trophy, because the FCA lost to the third-league Magdeburg with 0: 2. A number of important players have left the club with Raul Bobadilla (Gladbach), Dominik Kohr (Bayer Leverkusen), Paul Verhaegh (VfL Wolfsburg) and Halil Altintop (Slavia Prag). With Rani Khedira (RB Leipzig), Marcel Heller (Darmstadt), Sergio Cordova (Caracas FC) and Michael Gregoritsch (Hamburger SV) were good players, but their squad does not appear enough at the moment. Here the responsible persons will certainly be active again on the transfer market. The defeat in Magdeburg has also shown that Augsburg still has problems in the offensive, because they lack a creative player for the center. At the FCA, Dong-Won Ji, Caiuby, Gojko Kacar and Konstantinos Stafylidis will be missing.
