Our football match prediction:
Augsburg suffered a heavy 6-0 loss to Bayern Munich at Allianz Arena at the weekend, but the outcome of the match is anything but unexpected. Manuel Baum remained in the danger zone in the Bundesliga standings and they face a must-win situation in the relegation six-pointer against Augsburg. The hosts are desperate to pick up all three points from Wednesday’s football match and we predict that they will leave their heart on the field this time out. You should bear in mind that Augsburg are after their fourth home win of the season after they defeated the likes of Borussia M’gladbach, Werder Bremen and Darmstadt at their WWK Arena earlier in the process. Ingolstadt have slim chances of securing the Bundesliga survival and despite the fact that they defeated Mainz in their last league match, away win should not be considered in this one as Maik Walpurgis’ men suffered four defeats in last five games on the road.

Born in Grindavik in 1989, Alfred Finnbogason is one of the most prolific strikers in the history of Icelandic football, as the well-travelled forward has been scoring goals for fun throughout his career. His talent was first spotted at Breidablik, where two very successful campaign helped him move to Lokeren, where he did not spent a lot of time and soon signed for Helsingborgs. The return of 12 goals in 17 league outings for the Swedish giants soon secured him a move to Heerenveen, where he would go on to play the best football of his career, scoring remarkable 53 goals in 65 Eredivisie matches. Finnbogason somewhat struggled during spells with Real Sociedad and Olympiakos, but managed to kick-start his career at Augsburg, just in time to help Iceland on their first ever European Championship appearance. The prolific striker has been a member of the country’s national team since 2010, making over 30 appearances and scoring quite a few goals despite the fact that he was not always considered a first team regular.
