Our football match prediction:
Hoffenheim will be aiming to bounce back from a 3-2 loss to Freiburg when they welcome Augsburg at their WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar-Arena on Saturday afternoon. Julian Nagelsmann’s men aim to retain their spot in top four and we predict that they will go all guns blazing at Augsburg on Matchday 8. Sandro Wanger helped Germany record back-to-back wins over Northern Ireland and Azerbaijan at the weekend and the 30-year-old attacker is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. Augsburg failed to upset Borussia Dortmund (1-2) in their last league match and seeing that they failed to score in two of their last three away games in the German top flight, the visitors are unlikely to spoil Hoffenheim’s party in Sinsheim. Mark Uth has netted four goals in the Bundesliga so far this term and he will be yet another man to watch in the home team.
