Match Date: 19 April 2014 (local time)

Venue: Impuls Arena

 

Augsburg takes the spotlight after inflicting Bayern Munchen’s first Bundesliga defeat this season. Unfortunately, the momentum failed to continue as they fell short during the match against Hoffenheim. The said defeat has also ended their ambitions of making it to the Europa League.

 

Due to the disappointing event, many are waiting on how Augsburg will react to the said scenario. It has several matches left, but its qualification in the European Arena no longer depends on its performances. Borussia Monchengladbach, which currently holds the last spot for the Europa League appearance is less likely to wave the white flag in their remaining encounters.

 

Augsburg currently occupies the 8th spot of the Bundesliga table. In terms of its team form, it has only won once in its last 6 matches. It may not be the best form, but certainly, it is much better than its upcoming opponent, Hertha Berlin.

 

After an impressive start, Hertha Berlin was unable to keep pace with Bundesliga’s intensity and pressure. Nevertheless, theirs was still a good performance considering the fact that they are a newly promoted squad.

 

However, it seems that its chances of winning against Augsburg are slim. They are winless in its last 6 matches and have conceded an average of 2 goals in 5 of them.

 

In addition, Hertha Berlin was not very successful during its last 3 away matches, which further lower its chances of securing a victory.

 

Prediction: Augsburg

The win against Bayern Munchen was simply too fantastic to be ignored. Definitely, Augsburg is the match’s online betting favorite.
