Magdeburg vs FC Augsburg Prediction & Betting tips
In the first round of the DFB Cup, there will be a duel between 1. FC Magdeburg and FC Augsburg in the MDCC Arena. Three years ago these teams were already in the first round and then the third league made it to shoot the Bundesliga with a 1-0 out of the competition.
The 1. FC Magdeburg has already made a name for itself in the trophy. In the 2000/2001 season, for example, 1. FC Köln, Bayern München and the Karlsruher SC failed at the Bördeländer. In the season 14/15 and 16/17, the Bundesliga clubs Bayer Leverkusen and Eintracht Frankfurt only came in the next round by the penalty shoot-out, so the Augsburgers are certainly warned. “We want to go one round,” says Mario Kallnik, clearly. After the Magdeburger just missed the relegation last season, they have started this season neatly into the 3rd league. After their opening defeat in Grossaspach, three victories in succession were against RW Erfurt (3-0), SV Meppen (2: 1) and Würzburg (2: 1). Striking: In every game they have scored at least one hit. Here, Philip Türpitz and Michel Niemeyer have been able to play a particularly prominent role. Coach Jens Härtel usually plays with a 3-4-3 – but it would be possible to switch to the Bundesliga.
For the guests it becomes the first mandatory game of the season. The preparation went well. Apart from their defeats against Regensburg (1: 2) and Middlesbrough (1: 2), they won against Ulm (3: 2) and Southampton (4-0) as well as a draw against Eindhoven (0-0). Amongst others, they have joined forces with Michael Gregoritsch (HSV), Sergio Cordova (Caracas FC), Fabian Giefer (Schalke 04), Rani Khedira (RB Leipzig) and Marcel Heller (Darmstadt 98). Coach Manuel Baum can therefore largely rely on his squad of pre-season. It is clear, however, that this season will again be mainly about keeping the class. Annoying: With Dominik Kohr (Leverkusen) and Paul Verhaegh (Wolfsburg) two important players left the club.
