Our match prediction:
Relegation threatened Hoffenheim find themselves deep in the relegation zone with 11 games to go, sitting five points adrift of safety and three behind the play-off berth. TSG ended the barren run of results as they surprisingly beat top 4 contenders Mainz, but they could do little to avoid a loss to Borussia Dortmund despite taking the lead through Sebastian Rudy, who later got sent off and is now banned. Nevertheless, Hoffenheim will be able to take some positives from the trip to Signal-Iduna Park ahead of the clash with Augsburg, a team that is coming off a very difficult fixture list. Having faced the likes of Bayern Munich, Liverpool (twice) and Borussia M’gladbach, Marcus Weinzerl’s side will be happy to test their skills against relegation strugglers and after enjoying a 1-0 triumph over Hannover on the road, we predict the history to repeat itself when Augsburg face another side destined for the drop.
