Hertha Berlin vs Augsburg Prediction & Betting tips
Hertha BSC can breathe a sigh of relief. Bruno Labbadia rekindled the fire of the “old lady” and made a sensational start as a coach for the blue and whites. The capital club remained unbeaten in the three competitive games under Labbadia. After two wins in a row, there was a considerable point win against the third place in the table from Leipzig on the previous day.
Now after the pleasing results against RB Leipzig (2: 2), Hoffenheim (3: 0) and Union Berlin (4: 0) with Augsburg, a comparatively easier task for the “old lady” from Berlin is pending. For both clubs, relegation in the Bundesliga is currently a top priority. While Hertha BSC has a pleasant cushion of points, FC Augsburg is already in a tight spot.
In the rest of the Bundesliga program, the Augsburg team will face some direct duels in the relegation battle. With the latest home draw against the bottom of the table from Paderborn, the Fuggerstädter wasted important points in the fight for relegation. Surprisingly at all times, because only a week earlier the Augsburgers won 3-0 in Gelsenkirchen.
If it is up to last week’s performance, Hertha vs. Augsburg is probably the best choice for the home side. Further tips and analyzes for the 29th matchday in the German House of Lords can be found in the Betting Tips section of the Bundesliga.
The resumption of the current Bundesliga season could not have gone better for Hertha BSC. Under the new trainer Bruno Labbadia, the “old lady” from the capital remained unbeaten three times in a row. The blue-whites even won two of the three competitive games under Labbadia before the first draw last weekend.
As with the games against Hoffenheim (3: 0) and Union Berlin (4: 0), Hertha BSC also made an offensive start in Leipzig. The capital kickers rewarded themselves with a leading goal in the early stages, but had to accept the equalizer in the first half.
Then there were gaps in the Leipzig game. Due to the relegation of the third in the table, the match became more and more open, but RB Leipzig was more determined in the important game phase and deservedly took the lead. The blue-whites fought their way back in the spotlight with a penalty from winter newcomer Krzysztof Piatek.
With the next points about FC Augsburg Hertha BSC wants to take another step towards relegation. The magical 40-point mark is currently five points away. Hertha has won 15 points in the 14 home games of the current season. Before the derby victory over Union Berlin, the “old lady” stayed at home without a win five times in a row.
So that the momentum under Labbadia is used further, three points should wave against the FCA. The 54-year-old blue and white trainer is unlikely to make any major changes compared to the previous weeks. In addition to the two injured Karim Rekik and Thomas Kraft, Santiago Ascacibar will also no longer be available.
The Argentine midfielder will be out with a foot injury until the end of the season.
The Fuggerstadt residents are unlikely to be satisfied with the latest result. After the grandiose appearance in Gelsenkirchen, FC Augsburg left important points in the relegation battle at home against the bottom of the table from Paderborn. In the goalless draw, the FCA had to struggle with poor chances.
For Heiko Herrlich, the new Augsburg coach, there was nothing to talk about either. His team could not build on the strong performance against FC Schalke 04 and remained too harmless in the game forward. Nevertheless, the red-green-whites trainer likes to take the points with him, especially since at least the starting position in the Bundesliga table is preserved.
Heiko Herrlich’s team now faces a difficult task in Berlin. The defensive of the Fuggerstädter in particular will be in demand at the weekend. Most recently, FC Augsburg remained without conceding twice in a row. It is quite possible that the series will tear up against the form-strong and attacking Berliners at the weekend.
In the away games of the current season, things have not always been so smooth for FC Augsburg. Before the away win against FC Schalke 04, there were five away defeats in series, where a total of 14 goals were conceded. Including the away game at Union Berlin, the city rival of Hertha BSC.
Heiko Herrlich will have three failures this weekend. Simon Asta, Fabian Giefer and Julianieber will not be available to the new Fuggerstadt trainer. It cannot be ruled out that Herrlich will make some changes in the starting eleven after his team’s weak offensive performance. The defensive, however, should remain unchanged after the sovereign appearances.
