Match Date: 03 May 2014 (local time)

Venue: Eintracht-Stadion

 

Unfortunately for Braunschweig, its last 2 matches, including the upcoming one against Augsburg cannot save them from the relegation. The squad will soon return to 2 Bundesliga after failing to feature in Germany’s top-flight league.

 

After showing signs of improvement, the newly promoted Braunschweig was unable to sustain the tournament’s intense competition and plunged into 3 consecutive defeats. The defeats also witnessed them having difficulty in scoring and defending. They were unable to score a single goal in the said matches, but conceded at least 2 goals.

 

Despite the lackluster performance, it was nonetheless a great opportunity for the club. It may be a short stint, but they can gain tons of experience from their stay.

 

Meanwhile, Augsburg will end the season with a smile. After struggling in the 15th spot last season, they are now one of the league’s 10 elite clubs. Indeed, it was a giant leap for them as they are currently occupying the 8th spot of the Bundesliga table.

 

Should they win against Braunschweig, they have the opportunity to further improve their rank.

 

From a struggling squad to one of Bundesliga’s finest—this has been Augsburg’s story throughout the season. As a matter of fact, if there are more matches left, Augsburg could have easily qualified for a Europa League appearance next season.

 

Prediction:  Augsburg

Augsburg is expected to win at a profitable value of 2.41 in the sports betting site, 12BET.
