Team News: Union Berlin
The Union Berlin boss Urs Fischer will be thankful to have no fitness concerns at all before this clash owing to a fully injury-free group available to choose from.
Team News: Augsburg
Augsburg manager Markus Weinzierl has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Jeffrey Gouweleeuw (Tear in the abductor muscle), Jan Morávek (Tear in the abductor muscle), Alfred Finnbogason (Achilles tendon problems) and Tobias Strobl (Ankle Injury) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
Our assessment is that Union Berlin should fashion enough chances to find the net more than once while possibly not conceding when they line up against Augsburg, who could well find it tough getting on the scoresheet.
We’re therefore anticipating a controlled 2-0 margin for Union Berlin when all’s said and done.
