Augsburg hosts Hertha BSC
Augsburg is doing well since the start of the new season. They are currently 8th in the Bundesliga standings with 22 points and a record of six wins, four draws and four losses. They are currently enjoying a run of two consecutive wins in the league after beating Wolfsburg and Mainz 05. We can say that this is a good moment for Augsburg – they are in a good position in the Bundesliga standings and they are enjoying positive results lately.
Hertha, on the other hand, are not doing so well this season. Last season they qualified for Europa League, but right now Hertha is 12th in the Bundesliga standings with just 17 points won so far. The Old Lady’s record in the league right now is 4 wins, 5 draws and 5 losses – certainly, it’s showing inconsistency, which is the main reason why Hertha are in a much of a bad position right now.
Let’s have a look at the team news before the clash.
Augsburg can’t use the suspended Kilian Jakob and Daniel Opare, while Erik Thommy is injured. Meanwhile, Gojko Kacar, Rani Khedira, Georg Teigl and Moritz Leitner are all doubtful for the home team.
Hertha will be without the injured Vladimir Darida, while Thomas Kraft, Salomon Kalou, Sebastian Langkamp, Davie Selke and Valentin Stocker are all doubtful for the away team. It’s still not clear if they would be able to participate in the match.
Augsburg is clearly the team in a better form right now. They also have the home ground advantage, which makes them a favourite against Hertha. But despite their problems, Hertha remain a decent team filled with good players. They shall not be underrestimated, so be careful with them. Good luck!
