The Billy Goats are one of the worst teams in the whole competition. In fact, since the start of the campaign they were expected to be relegated, and now with just four matches remaining in the league, they are placed 17th in a table of 18.
They have been a failure on the road all through this campaign, and they have been conceding goals in plenty since day one. To quote a stat, they have let in the most number of goals in the German top flight, barring the dead-last placed Schalke.
Meanwhile, Fuggerstadter are one of the mid-table teams. They have been going through an inconsistent run all through 2020-21, but still they have managed to post a considerable number of good performances. Importantly, at home they have been a far more impressive team, and have scored goals at a far better rate.
Going on, they also have a good h2h record against this rival over the years, and have consistently found the back of the net against them. For these reasons, expect Augsburg to emerge victorious this Friday.
