Union Berlin v Augsburg
- Augsburg +0,5 @1,81 Pinnacle
Short preview: We have already been there, backing Augbusrg away from home and I suggest doing it once again. In the last round of Bundesliga, Augsburg had Borussia Dortmund on the knees, but then “Halland happened” and BVB ended winning 3-5. One round earlier they were defeated in Leipzig, but that just shows us that they had two very difficult opponents to play against. Before those two matches, they were unbeaten for 5 rounds and against Union they can, in my opinion, re-start the unbeaten period once again. While Iago is away with Brazil, the coach Martin Schmidt will be able to count on midfielder Löwen who joined from Hertha, and striker Finnbogasson and defender Lichtsteiner who are fit after being out due to injuries. Union Berlin is coming in this match after three losses in a row. First, they lost again Hoffenheim at home (0-2), and then against poor Dusseldorf away (2-1) and Leipzig with the same result as Augsburg. Anyways, I can not see why are bookies favorizing the home side that much and it seems much more like 50/50 clash to me. Therefore I see value on the away side.
