Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Despite suffering a heavy 4-0 loss to Leipzig at Red Bull Arena, Augsburg will compete in Bundesliga for yet another term. The Bavarians managed to secure the elite division survival, meaning that head coach Markus Weinzierl can breathe easier ahead of the last day of the season. Augsburg aim to finish the season in style, and they are surely capable of beating the rock-bottom side in front of home fans.
All Vargas, Sarenren-Bazee and Strobl have been struggling with injuries of late. Greuther Furth, on the other hand, have not been competitive at this level, with the team dropping to the German second tier. Since the visitors are low on spirits following a 3-1 loss to Borussia Dortmund, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home side. All Nielsen, Meyerhofer, and Kehr should miss out through injuries for the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Alfred Finnbogason):
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.
