Our Prediction:

Werder Bremen will win

Werder Bremen – Augsburg Match Prediction | 02-09-2019 09:30

Coach Florian Kohfeldt had even more bad luck last week when forward Milot Rashica, who has scored four goals over his last five appearances for club and country, was ruled out for the foreseeable future with an injury. Fortunately, his record against Augsburg reads three games played and three won, with an average of 3.3 goals scored per game. Hence, it wasnt good timing for striker Johannes Eggestein to get himself sent off last game either.

Augsburgs defense has been strengthened by new signings Tin Jedvaj on-loan fromBayer Leverkusen and former Arsenal man Stephan Lichtsteiner over the past week or so the transfer window is still open in Germany, but this might not be enough only six teams have seen more shots on target against them than Augsburg. At the other end of the pitch, last seasons top scorer Alfred Finnbogason has resumed full training, so should at least be a part of the squad on Sunday.

They will want to prove their worth at wohninvest WESERSTADION but we feel theyre in for another tough challenge. Fuggerstadter conceded a late goal last week and failed to snatch all three points despite rivals finishing the game with ten men, which will be just as much of a disappointment for the fans who had high hopes ahead of the new campaign.

Over / Under Prediction: Total goals over 3.50 goals in ordinary time at odds 2.47

Notably, only Borussia Dortmund and Bayer Leverkusen have seen more goals in their Bundesliga games so far than Werder Bremen or Augsburg, and this fixturehas been one worth tuning in for over the years. There hasnt been a draw in any of the last 14 meetings between Werder Bremen and Augsburg since 2012, with over 2.5 goals scored in 12 of these (85%).

In terms of a result, Bremen might have lost their first two games, but their 43 shots on goal so far is a league-high, 5 more than leaders Dortmund have managed, so we feel they should have plenty of opportunities to convert against their opponents vulnerable back-line. Augsburg have conceded three goals or more in five of their last eight away games too, which also shows theyre not a good travelling side, so were backing Werder Bremen to win 3-1 on Sunday.

Following a thoroughly impressive loan stint with Feyenoord, Sahin returned to Dortmund, where he enjoyed two more very successful years before signing for Real Madrid. However, it was at that time that his career started taking the wrong turn as he was never able to rediscover his form, and he eventually returned to Borussia following a somewhat disappointing stint at Liverpool.

Werder Bremen is ranked on the 8th place in the standings with 45 points, 61 goals scored and 64 goals received in the last 34 leagueevents. Werder Bremen lost 3 of their last 5 matches before this game with Augsburg.The attacking skills of Werder Bremen are moderate, they won 2events from the last 5 played. They have failed to win 15 of their last 34 matches in Bundesliga.In their last match they lost against Dortmund.

A promising start in Dortmund, where Florian Niederlechner put them 1-0 up within the opening minute, ultimately became a day to forget, as Martin Schmidts men were beaten 5-1.And if last weekends performance at home to Union Berlin was anything to go by, his side could be looking at another season battling down the bottom. Augsburgs start to the season hasnt been much better.

The Vitesse footballer has six caps for Albania U21 team, but he represents Kosovo at senior level.
