Schalke vs Augsburg Prediction & Betting tips
There has been a lot of discussion in the past few days about who would get the rights for Friday and Monday games in the Bundesliga after Eurosport’s exit. It is now clear that both DAZN and Amazon Prime can show the corresponding matches. The irregular Sunday noon games are also affected by this rule.
As part of the 27th matchday, Schalke and Augsburg, for example, face each other at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday. According to the odds of the reputable bookmakers in Germany, the home side is favored, although both teams are currently in a tangible crisis and absolutely need points in order to achieve the intended goals.
Last weekend it became clear just how bad things are for the two long-standing Bundesliga teams. The royal blues received an embarrassing 0: 4 swatter in the district derby and were sometimes shown by the great Ruhrpott rival. The FCA put a decent home game on the pitch, but ultimately went away empty-handed due to a last-minute goal from Wolfsburg’s Daniel Ginczek (1: 2).
In the direct duel, however, one of the teams will probably end their negative series. Is it the squire after eight games in a row without a win or the Fuggerstädter who have not won six times in a row and could not score a goal away in 2020? We tend to a Schalke against Augsburg forecast on the Gelsenkirchener and refer to the higher quality in the squad and the fact that the table is even worse for the guests.
In the first half of the season David Wagner was celebrated as a lucky break for FC Schalke 04. However, if you look at the results of the second half of the season, the German-American must be careful that he does not experience a similar crash to his predecessor Domenico Tedesco, who was also praised early on and then almost led the miners into league two.
However, the current situation in Gelsenkirchen is not as dramatic as in the previous season. The Royal Blues are in eighth place and are “only” two points behind the European Cup ranks. However, since S04 was still in fifth place after the first half series and was even tied with Borussia Dortmund, it quickly becomes clear that nothing has converged so far after the winter break with the ambitious Ruhrpottlers.
In numbers, this means that only three teams in the nine games in calendar year 2020 scored fewer points than the Wagner team. The catastrophically harmless offensive, which only marked four goals (lowest in the Bundesliga), is also worrying. In comparison, only the coming opponent from Augsburg (23) conceded more goals (19) than the unsettled miners.
Statistically, there are therefore few plausible reasons for a Schalke vs. Augsburg would justify tip on the host. Nevertheless, we are in good spirits that the Ruhrpottler, who can be assessed as being of higher quality, will end their negative series of eight winless Bundesliga games in a row on Sunday and at the same time make amends for the embarrassing bankruptcy at Borussia Dortmund (0: 4) the previous week.
The fact that there will be no spectators in the Veltins Arena is not necessarily to be seen as a disadvantage, since the Wagner team usually struggled at home when the pressure and expectations of their own supporters became too great and quickly went into it Negatives flipped. It is quite possible that due to the elimination of the stumbling block and the existing individual class on the S04 side between Schalke and Augsburg, the odds for a home win include value.
David Wagner, who came under criticism, will be without Harit, Todibo, Mascarell and Stambouli on Sunday. The probably most interesting question remains unanswered until shortly before the game begins: Will Schubert get a new chance between the posts or will the Gelsenkirchener again make the outgoing Nübel number one?
Involuntarily, FC Augsburg became the laughing stock of the country in the run-up to the restart in the Bundesliga. Heiko Herrlich, of all people, was responsible for this, who was introduced as the new coach of the Fuggerstadt team immediately before the break. At the press conference, the ex-professional confessed that he had violated the quarantine requirements and had left his club’s imaginatively sealed hotel because of the purchase of toothpaste and hand cream.
After all, Herrlich took the consequences on his own initiative and refrained from entering the interior on matchday 26, when the South Swabians made a decent appearance at home against VfL Wolfsburg and ultimately ended up without points after a particularly good second half. The goal to 1: 2 fell in the 90th minute and thus led to a continuation of the FCA descent in the highest German division.
The Augsburgers have not won in the Bundesliga for six matches. During this period there were a total of five losses and only one point in addition to the change of coach mentioned. If you take the entire second half of the season as a reference, there is no first division club that has fewer counts on the credit side than the red-green-whites.
Four points from nine games, seven defeats and a whopping 23 goals (maximum) are the main reason why the FCA is the weakest team in the second half of the season and, at just four points ahead of the relegation place, even has to seriously fear for relegation.
It is relatively unlikely that the ban will be broken on Sunday afternoon in the Veltins Arena, because in addition to the weak back series to date, the disappointing record abroad as part of our Schalke vs. Augsburg forecast to be taken into account. Only Eintracht Frankfurt scored fewer points away (seven) than the Fuggerstadt team (nine). The most recent five guest appearances have all been lost; In 2020 Finnbogason and Co. are still waiting for the first away goal in four games.
Personally, it looks at table 14. meanwhile good. Before Heiko Herrlich’s official debut on the coaching bench, only Simon Asta and Andre Hahn are not available. Changes in the starting eleven are still conceivable. Uduokhai and Lichtensteiner are serious alternatives. However, there are small question marks behind the stakes of the key players Gouweleeuw and Finnbogason.
