We are already in the second round of the German Bundesliga after the league’s suspension. Schalke 04 and Augsburg are yet to show their worth after both teams were defeated in the last round.
Schalke has been struggling to get positive results even before the halt of the league and the problem still persists; drawing 2 and losing 3 in the last 5 Bundesliga rounds. They are currently occupying the 8th position with 37 points after 9 wins, 10 draws and, 7 defeats. Much work must be done to overcome the goal crises. So far Schalke managed to score only 33 goals and conceded 40 goals. Dortmund rampaged Schalke 4-0 in the last round. What calls much attention in this match is that Dormund only had 4 shots on target and all of them found the net. And Schalke has had considerable dangerous attacks and good ball possession in most games.
On the other hand, Augsburg occupies the 14th place with a record of 7 wins, 6 draws, and 13 defeats, summing up 27 points. They have scored a total of 37 goals and suffered 54 goals. This numbers sets them as one of the worst teams in defense in this league. In their last 5 Bundesliga rounds, they haven’t registered any win (1D – 4L). In fact, their last victory was back in January against the second to last Paderborn. The team is weak both in defense and attack, with poor ball possession and creating few goal opportunities.
Schalke has a positive record in the H2H encounters, with Augsburg winning only once (back in 2015). Moreover, Augsburg has lost all of the last 5 away league games and only managed to score once; whereas Schalke has a record of 1W – 3D – 1L playing at home. Based on the stats, my bet is a victory for Schalke 04. Register for the best betting software to enjoy the best odds and highest limits on the market.
