Full predictions, stats & game poll for the Augsburg v Greuther Furth match are shown here (inc. the best betting odds).
Augsburg will be looking for an improved result here following a 4-0 Bundesliga 1 losing effort in their last game against RB Leipzig.
In that match, Augsburg managed 36% possession and 6 attempts on goal with 1 on target. RB Leipzig got 14 attempts at goal with 8 of them on target. André Silva (40'), Christopher Nkunku (48', 57') and Emil Forsberg (64') scored for RB Leipzig.
It has been seldom in recent games where Augsburg haven’t conceded. The reality is that Augsburg have been scored against in 5 of their previous 6 games, letting in 11 goals on the way. Even so, we’ll just have to find out whether the trend might be replicated in this next match or not.
Looking at the pre-match facts, Augsburg:
- haven't lost in the league to Greuther Furth in their previous 7 games.
- haven’t won at home in the past 2 league matches.
Following on from a loss in their previous game against Borussia Dortmund in Bundesliga 1 competition, Greuther Furth and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
In that game, Greuther Furth had 42% possession and 8 shots on goal with 3 on target. The scorer for Greuther Furth was Jessic Ngankam (70'). Borussia Dortmund had 8 attempts at goal with 4 of them on target. Julian Brandt (26', 72') and Felix Passlack (77') scored for Borussia Dortmund.
It has become apparent that Greuther Furth have had real problems scoring goals in their past six games, contributing the poor return of just 3. In those matches, Greuther Fürth have also seen the overall goal tally of opposing teams equal 10.
Looking at the pre-match facts, Greuther Furth:
- are unbeaten in their last 3 away league matches.
- haven’t won away from home in the past 16 league games. They must be getting so desperate.

Team News: Augsburg
Noah Joel Sarenren Bazee (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Rubén Vargas (Ligament Injury) and Tobias Strobl (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) aren’t available for Augsburg boss Markus Weinzierl.
We think that Augsburg may well use a 4-4-2 system for the game featuring Rafal Gikiewicz, Robert Gumny, Jeffrey Gouweleeuw, Reece Oxford, Iago, Daniel Caligiuri, Arne Maier, Niklas Dorsch, M. Valentin Pedersen, Andre Hahn and Michael Gregoritsch.
Team News: Greuther Furth
Owing to a completely healthy squad ready to go, the Greuther Furth boss Stefan Leitl has no fitness worries whatsoever coming into this match.
We are inclined to think that Greuther Fürth could decide to begin the game with a 4-3-2-1 formation, settling for Sascha Burchert, Simon Asta, Sebastian Griesbeck, Nick Viergever, Gian-Luca Itter, Tobias Raschl, Max Christiansen, Timothy Tillman, Jamie Leweling, Jessic Ngankam and Branimir Hrgota.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Greuther Furth have the ability to score against this Augsburg team, although that realistically won’t prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.
We’re going for a very close game with a 2-1 winning margin for Augsburg after the 90. It really should be an interesting one.
