Augsburg Betting News

Augsburg is pretty unpredictable at the beginning of the season. They had some solid matches, such as an away draw against Bayer Leverkusen and a victory against Werder in Bremen, but they also had poor displays, such as home defeats against Wolfsburg and Mainz. Before the international break RB Leipzig defeated them by 2:1. Augsburg hasn’t played a friendly match during the break.

Injuries and suspensions: Jan Moravek, Raul Bobadilla, Dominik Kohr, Caiuby, Tim Rieder, Joannis Gelios, Raphael Framberger, Jan Ingwer Callsen Bracker, Marvin Friedrich and Marco Schuster are injured for the forthcoming match.

Schalke Betting News

Schalke had a disastrous start of Bundesliga season – they were defeated in the first five rounds! They finally recorded the first victory of the season before the international break, against Borussia Moenchengladbach. And what a victory that was, against a very strong opponent. The result was 4:0 and the performance Schalke put in against Moenchengladbach re-ignited the hope of a solid season for their fans. It is interesting that Schalke plays very good in Europa League. So far they recorded victories in both matches they played, against Nice and Salzburg and they will almost certainly qualify for the knockout phase of the competition.

Injuries and suspensions: Fabian Reese, Sidney Sam, Bernard Tekpetey, Joshua Bitter, Donis Avdijaj, Fabian Giefer, Coke, Atsuto Uchida, Christian Sivodedov and Timon Wellenreuther are injured for the forthcoming match.

Augsburg vs Schalke Match Betting Prediction

In their previous ten meetings, Schalke recorded five victories, Augsburg recorded only one victory, while four matches ended as a draw. Augsburg is currently in a series of three matches without a defeat against Schalke and they celebrated a victory on WWK Arena in the previous season. However, Schalke finally found their form and we expect they will win in this match.
