Augsburg will be hoping for a better result after the 1-0 Bundesliga 1 defeat last time out to Schalke. In that match, Augsburg managed 56% possession and 12 attempts at goal with 4 of them on target. FC Schalke 04 got 7 shots at goal with 2 of them on target. Suat Serdar (4') was the scorer for Schalke. It has been seldom in recent games that Augsburg have shown defensive steel.

The facts show that Augsburg have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 games, shipping 7 goals on the way. Historical results aside, we must now wait to see if that pattern shall be replicated in this upcoming match. Coming into this clash, Augsburg are undefeated in their last 3 league matches at home.

Arminia Bielefeld come into this game following a 1-0 Bundesliga 1 win with the eclipse of Freiburg in their previous fixture. In that game, Arminia Bielefeld had 44% possession and 13 attempts on goal with 4 of them on target. For their opponents, SC Freiburg had 10 attempts at goal with 1 of them on target. Baptiste Santamaria (68' Own goal) was the scorer for Freiburg.

The attacking players from Arminia Bielefeld have suffered from a lack of goals over their previous 6 clashes, contributing the disappointing return of just 4. In those fixtures, Bielefeld have also seen the collective goal aggregate of opposing teams equal 5. Heading into this contest, Arminia Bielefeld have not been beaten in their last 2 league matches away from home.

Head to head

The previous league meeting featuring these sides was Bundesliga 1 match day 12 on 16/12/2020 and the score finished Arminia Bielefeld 0-1 Augsburg. On that occasion, Arminia Bielefeld had 48% possession and 12 attempts at goal with 2 on target. Augsburg had 9 shots on goal with 2 on target. Jeffrey Gouweleeuw (85') was the scorer.

Team News:

Augsburg Tim Civeja (Pubis bone irritation), Fredrik Jensen (Thigh Problems) and Iago (Ankle Injury) aren’t available for Augsburg boss Heiko Herrlich.

Team News:

Arminia Bielefeld Bielefeld boss Frank Kramer has not got a full squad to pick from. Reinhold Yabo (Quarantine) and Sergio Córdova (Corona virus) are names that won’t be on the team sheet. Prediction

Our thinking is that Arminia Bielefeld are dangerous enough to breach the defence of this Augsburg lineup, although that might not quite be enough to avoid defeat. I am expecting a narrow 2-1 advantage for Augsburg by the conclusion of the game. It’s a very tough call.
