FC Augsburg and SC Paderborn 07 will meet at WWK Arena for a match of round 28 in the 2019-20 German Bundesliga on Wednesday. Augsburg are right now sitting on the twelfth place in the standings with 30 points, while Paderborn are rock bottom on 18 points, with a 9 point gap to the first safe place.
Steffen Baumgart’s men are placed dead toward the end in the table, and they likewise are new participants to this competition – in the wake of having been promoted from the 2.Bundesliga the previous summer. In actuality, Heiko Herrlich’s men are at home and are knowledgeable about this top flight, and they likewise have a decent h2h record as of late. Accordingly, expect an Augsburg dominate this match-day.
After 6 games without a success, Augsburg has at long last defeated somebody, and they did it in great fashion. Augsburg was playing against Schalke this previous end of the week on the road and has had just 29% of ball possession, 7 shots on goal, 2 corner kicks, and low 60% of the right passes. Augsburg had to defend all through the match, yet they were somehow ready to score 3 goals and to dominate this game 0-3. Right now, Augsburg is in twelfth place with 30 points, 40 scored goals, and 54 yielded goals.
Augsburg was known to amaze this season, yet for its majority, Augsburg wasn’t playing that well. Niederlechner has scored 11 objectives and included 6 assists for Augsburg so far this season, while Max included 7 goals and 5 assists.
Asta and Hahn are both harmed and will miss this game. Augsburg is entirely far away from the transfer zone, and they will remain in Bundesliga next season too, however, this 12th place is their most extreme as they need consistency and more offensive firepower. Overall, Augsburg is a fair team, yet below average in Bundesliga, interestingly, they are by all account not the only bellow average team.
Paderborn is the least skilled team in Bundesliga and tragically for them, Paderborn will get consigned this season. Paderborn hasn’t won any of their last 8 games, while they won just 1 of their last 10 games. Paderborn is in the last place in the standings with just 18 points, 31 scored goals, and 55 surrendered goals. For Paderborn to escape the relegation zone, a miracle ought to occur, and not just one.
Srbeny and Mamba are Paderborn’s leading goal scorers with 5 goals each, while Proger included 6 assists. Kilian is the only injured player for Paderborn, and he will miss this match. Defensively, Paderborn has not been playing great and they have conceded at least 1 goal in 9 of their last 10 games. In their most recent match in Bundesliga against Hoffenheim at home, Paderborn has had 38% of ball possession, 2 shots on goal, 80% of the right passes, and 2 corner kicks.
Paderborn got behind early in the first half, yet only 5 minutes after yielding a goal, Paderborn has tied the game. The outcome didn’t change until the finish of the game, and this match finished in 1-1 draw. Paderborn is 9 points away from the safe zone however thinking that they are the weakest team of the considerable number of teams that are battling to remain in Bundesliga.
The hosts are returning off the of a thumping triumph away to Schalke, running out 3-0 champs to end a run of six games without a triumph. Five of those six games were defeats yet Schalke, injured and delicate, were ready and waiting. Not that it was as far-reaching as the scoreline may propose.
Augsburg proceeded through a great free-kick by Eduard Löwen in the opening ten minutes, setting off an eventually unsuccessful fightback from their adversaries. The enormously named Noah Joel Sarenren Bazee scored his first goal for Augsburg to double the lead late on before Sergio Córdova rounded the goalkeeper in stoppage time. This match denoted the first time when that Heiko Herrlich coached the side from the touchline, 75 days after his arrangement. He missed a week ago’s defeat to Wolfsburg in the wake of serving a boycott for disrupting quarantine guidelines. Augsburg fans will trust he acts and keeps up this series of wins.
Rock bottom of the German top flight, Paderborn expected to make a prompt improvement after the rest if they somehow managed to get an opportunity of keeping awake. While they haven’t tasted triumph in their two return fixtures, they have maintained a strategic distance from defeat. However Saturday’s 1-1 draw at home to Hoffenheim implied that they had failed to win any of their last eight games.
With Augsburg surrendering at least one goal in their last six home matches, we envision that Paderborn will be urged to go for success here. It could drag their adversaries, who are three points away from 16th, deeper into a relegation battle. Back over 2.5 goals in what ought to be a nearby game.

FC Augsburg vs SC Paderborn 07 Prediction
Herrlich’s men recorded a 0-3 win on the road the last match-day, against Schalke. The hosts, regardless of being one of the better teams in the league, had no response to the unfathomable performance by Herrlich’s men. The guests scored their first goal in the initial five minutes itself and included two all the more later in the end phases of the match-up.
In the interim, Baumgart’s men registered a 1-1 draw at home the earlier game week, against Hoffenheim. The two goals had come in the initial ten minutes of the fixture, and from that point procedures were somewhat quiet.
As things stand this Wednesday, Baumgart’s men are a lot of an underdog. In addition to the fact that they are new into this league, however, they are battling to adapt up to the serious demands of the competition too. Starting at now, they are placed bottom-most in the table, and as it should be.
They have seven matches staying till the finish of the period, and need to make up a shortage of nine points to keep away from relegation. Note that all through their campaign, they had dealt with a total of 18 points. Then again, Herrlich’s men had got their most recent match-up 3-0, and have lost only five times at home this season.
Going on, Herrlich’s men had recorded four of the last five h2h wins, and at this venue, they have a 100% winning record against this enemy this previous decade, and during this period have not surrendered a single goal also.
Paderborn don’t have gained notoriety for setting games alight with goals. Be that as it may, time is running out for them to save themselves from relegation. They have to begin taking risks and consequently we predict an open game at the Augsburg Arena.
Augsburg finished their poor run of form at the end of the week and look great incentive to make it consecutive successes against the division’s basement boys. Paderborn have kept away from defeat in progressive games for simply the second time this term, yet they just need to start picking up wins.
