Augsburg were quite disappointing in the recent match against Schalke, but Hertha Berlin would be the more disappointed of the teams from the weekend results. Despite taking the lead against Stuttgart, Pal Dardai’s men ended up losing a significant opportunity to strengthen their position for a top six finish. Hertha Berlin and Augsburg have largely played out stalemates when they have met each other and it is reflective of the recent head-to-head meetings producing four draws in the last six. Yet, Hertha Berlin’s home advantage and their recent form in front of goal that make our preview go with a home win.

Correct Score odds
Hertha Berlin have struggled when it comes to scoring on the road but it is a different case with regard to matches at the Olympiastadion Berlin, where Dardai’s men have averaged close to two goals per match. Augsburg find themselves slipping closer towards the drop owing to a struggle in front of goal. The goal by Gregoritsch in the game against Schalke is Augsburg’s only goal in the last three league matches. Our correct score prediction would pick a 2-1 win for Hertha Berlin.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The games for Hertha Berlin have been entertaining on more than one occasion. The victories over Hannover and Frankfurt are the two examples of Hertha Berlin being involved in games with less than 2.5 goals over the last seven matches. Since Augsburg have decent offensive potential, our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Vedad Ibisevic has been unable to score in his last two games for Hertha Berlin and he has also been quite disappointing during this period. However, there is a great amount of pressure on the 36-year-old with the likes of Solomon Kalou unavailable due to an injury. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Ibisevic.
