It would be wise for Hertha to play intricately and avoid taking too many shooting chances at range, as Augsburg have an excellent record of defending those chances. Hertha will need to be creative when attacking, as Augsburg have shown great instinct at defending counter attacks. Augsburg should be able to continue their recent form, which has seen them give away very few chances in errors. Augsburg's defence have been tactically astute recently, and are on a good run of avoiding defensive errors. Augsburg may be able to get some extra possession in this game with their ability to dispossess opponents.

Hertha Vs Augsburg Prediction

Hertha are the better team on paper, and will be looking to dominate the game. This should result in a win for Hertha. Don’t rule out Augsburg though, as they will be keen to upset the home crowd. A bet of £10 would return £21.65 for a home win, £36.00 for a draw, and £40.75 for an away win.

This is set to be an eventful match in which we are expecting Hertha to create more chances than Augsburg. Both teams will be looking for the win but Hertha have the stronger attack. We are expecting them to edge a victory in this match with both teams to score. Our prediction for this match is: Hertha 2-1 Augsburg.
