Augsburg faces Paderborn
Inspired by their win against Schalke 04 in Gelsenkirchen, Augsburg faces Paderborn at the WWK Arena in a match from the 28th round of the Bundesliga. Let’s preview it in our soccer predictions for this week.
Augsburg really showed some muscle during the weekend when they traveled to Gelsenkirchen and beat Schalke 04 with 3-0 at the Veltins Arena. This was a first win for the club’s new manager Heiko Herrlich, who showed a glimpse of his work with the team. Eduard Lowen opened the score for Augsburg, while Noah Joel Sarenren-Bazee and Sergio Cordova made it 0-3 for the visitors.
Augsburg’s fans really waited for this win after four consecutive losses in the league. At this moment the club is 12th in the league standings with 30 points, being 6 points above the 16th Fortuna Dusseldorf. This is not bad gap between these two teams, but you can be sure that Augsburg will want this gap to be increased even more.
Paderborn remain at the last 18th place in the Bundesliga. The newcomers won one point against Hoffenheim during the weekend, but this is hardly enough. Right now Paderborn are at the bottom of the league with just 18 points won. They remain the strongest candidate for relegation this season. If they want to change this, they must start winning games as soon as possible. But it’s not as easy as it sounds, of course.
During the weekend Padeborn recorded their 6th draw for the season and second consecutive since the quarantine break. Dennis Srbeny’s goal against Hoffe was enough for Paderborn to get the point.
These are our soccer predictions for this week for the Bundesliga fixture between Augsburg and Paderborn from the 28th round. Based on these two teams’ latest performances, Augsburg are favourites to take the win here.
