Football forecast today for Augsburg vs Werder
Augsburg are 12th in the league at the moment with 23 points won. What really hurt them lately is their current form, because Augsburg suffered three consecutive losses in the last three rounds. The club is just one point behind 9th Eintracht Frankfurt though, so improvement wouldn’t be that difficult after all.
Last week Augsburg travelled to the capital, where they faced Union Berlin. It didn’t end well for Martin Schmidt’s team, because Union played better and enjoyed a 2-0 win.
It’s always difficult to make a struggling team improve, so that’s what the manager Martin Schmidt has to do now. For the next game he can’t use some players, because Julian Schieber and Sergio Cordova are sidelined with injuries.
Werder Bremen are in a worse position at the moment, because they are 16th in the league with 17 points – the relegation playoff spot in the league. The club’s shape is far from good, because Werder won just three points in the last five rounds. They must react quickly to this, because otherwise they can find themselves not where they would like to be.
Last week Werder hosted Hoffenheim at the Weserstadion, but the visitors dominated and won with 3-0. In the second half Werder’s manager Florian Kohfeldt put Bartels, Osako and Pizarro on the pitch, but it didn’t help.
In our football forecast today we believe that Augsburg can really use Werder’s weaknesses on Saturday. The visitors are in a very poor form and they will enter this game on Saturday as underdogs. Of course, Werder will try their best to improve, but Augsburg have the advantage here.
