Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Ingolstadt have been struggling in Bundesliga this season. Coach Markus Kauczinski’s is under big pressure ahead of Matchday 10 as his men have yet to record a win in the German top flight this season. Ingolstadt suffered a 2-0 loss to Mainz at the weekend, but many people believe that Saturday’s football match against Augsburg could be the turning point for the relegation-threatened side. Last season Ingolstadt were producing fine performances at home ground and that is giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Augsburg. Dirk Schuster’s charges are on a three-game losing run in all competitions at the moment and that is yet another reason why we predict Markus Kauczinski’s team will emerge triumphant in Saturday’s Bundesliga clash. Augsburg have been struggling at the back of late and you should have in mind that they conceded six goals in previous two league fixtures.

Highlighted Team (Augsburg):
Augsburg are a German football club founded in Augsburg, Bavaria back in 1907. Die Fuggerstadter play in German Bundesliga and with 12,200 members they are regarded as the largest football club in Bavaria. Augsburg wear white shirts and they host their rivals at WWK ARENA.
The capacity of the stadium is 30,660 and it has been the home of Augsburg since 2009. Augsburg won the Schwaben Cup 13 times and it has to be noted that they were promoted to the Bundesliga for the first time in 2011.
The club qualified for the Europa League 2015/2016 group stages and thanks to a 3-1 win over Partizan in Belgrade they booked their place in the last 32. However, Liverpool proved to be a big catch for the German outfit in the Europa League knockout stages.
Die Fuggerstadter’s main rivals are TSV 1860 Munich and there have always been fireworks when the two teams take on each other.
