Fortuna Düsseldorf begin only their second season in the top flight when they take on Augsburg at the ESPIRIT Arena. Düsseldorf were able to claim a victory in the 2. Bundesliga last season but they are expected to be in and among the relegation places towards the end of the season. Augsburg had to finish just a couple of points above the drop zone last season and the current season does not promise to change the situation. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Düsseldorf have been rated as huge favourites to go down – despite a strong set of results in pre-season and in the first round of the DFP Pokal. Rouwen Hennings’ form will be crucial for the newly-promoted team.
Augsburg were able to secure a 2-1 win over TSV Steinbach in the first round of the DFB Pokal. The club have been able to bring in Andre Hahn and Fredrik Jensen as the major signings in the window.
The last game between Augsburg and Düsseldorf was more than five years ago and the former were able to come away with a 3-2 win. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Augsburg.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Prediction and betting tip:”]Augsburg win at 2.80[/bet_tip_now]
Düsseldorf may be at a price of 2.45 to win the match, but Augsburg will be keen on starting this new season in a positive fashion. Last season, Augsburg had a decent away record with just six defeats in 17 trips. Düsseldorf have been able to bring in plenty of top European experience with the signings of players like Marvin Ducksch and Kenan Karaman, but the established names at Augsburg may have profound impact. Augsburg have also been able to register three wins in the last five meetings with Düsseldorf. Our preview would choose a win for Augsburg.

Correct Score odds
The game will witness decent chances for both clubs. Both have displayed sufficient form in pre-season and past head-to-head meetings between the two clubs also point to entertaining matches. The flurry of goals may be absent but our total goals prediction expects a 2-1 win for Augsburg.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Since this match should see goals at both ends of the pitch, there is a chance of the game ending up with more than 2.5 goals – just as it has done in two out of the last three meetings between the two clubs.

First Goalscorer odds
Alfred Finnbogason was able to finish just one goal behind Michael Gregoritsch in the Augsburg squad last season. However, there is a danger of the forward missing out on this game due to a knee injury. Gregoritsch played in a slightly withdrawn role in the recent DFB Pokal match, but our first goalscorer prediction would go with Gregoritsch.
