Augsburg look to extend their new confidence when they host Hannover at the WWK Arena this weekend. Augsburg remain just outside the bottom three places but that has been a sizeable improvement in terms of recent form from Manuel Baum’s men. Meanwhile, Hannover are looking likely for relegation after now falling eight points away from 15th place, while they are five points away from Stuttgart in the 16th place.

Betting Tips for the game
Augsburg were able to come up with a strong tactical display and claim a goalless draw against RB Leipzig at the Red Bull Arena. This was the second-consecutive impressive result for the team after beating Borussia Dortmund with a 2-1 score.
Hannover lost for a fourth consecutive Bundesliga match after being beaten 3-2 by Bayer Leverkusen at home. The last victory for Hannover was at the start of February when they beat Nuremberg at home.
Augsburg were able to manage a 2-1 victory over Hannover in the reverse fixture at the HDI Arena. Augsburg, though, lost by the same score at the WWK Arena when they last hosted Hannover – in a much impressive state – last season. Our betting tips and predictions for this match expect a victory for Augsburg.

Hannover have not lost more than four successive Bundesliga matches this season, but they are in danger of breaking this streak with the team on a very poor run of form. Augsburg, meanwhile, have been able to come up with back-to-back brilliant performances. It will certainly be difficult for Baum to motivate the players for an opponent who is in the relegation zone, but a victory for Augsburg in this match could put them on the verge of safety without a doubt. Our preview would go with a victory for Augsburg.

Augsburg vs Hannover draw odds: 4.33
Hannover win odds: 5.00
Correct Score odds
Augsburg have been more focused on defence in the last few matches as Baum has had to deal with injuries to key players like Finnbogason. Even though the forward is back in training for this match, he has spent almost a month on the sidelines and may show signs of rustiness. Even then, Hannover’s poor performance at both ends of the pitch is likely to result in a 2-1 victory for Augsburg, according to our correct score prediction.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There have been more than 2.5 goals in all of the last three meetings between Augsburg and Hannover. Even though this is a match between two teams at the bottom end of the table, Hannover’s defensive mistakes is likely to present opportunities at both ends. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Finnbogason has been able to get 10 goals and become the only Augsburg player to enter into double figures for the campaign. The 30-year-old has not played for more than a month after going off in the loss against Werder Bremen. Michael Gregoritsch has been a thorn for Hannover with three goals in as many appearances against the club in recent times. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Michael Gregoritsch.
