      Augsburg vs Athletic Bilbao Predictions

      After a very impressive campaign last season, Augsburg started the new season is dreadful form. They lost four of their opening five games in all competitions, with only a draw against Eintracht Frankfurt saving their blushes slightly.

      They only won one of their opening 11 matches, drawing twice and losing a horribly disappointing eight times. Two of these losses were in the Europa League, leaving them bottom of the group after two matches.

      But an away win against AZ Alkmaar got them off the mark in Europe, and including that result they have only lost two of their last seven games in all competitions.

      Four of these outings have ended in victory for the resurgent Augsburg, and a home win against AZ saw their points tally in the Europa League increase to six points.

      It’s very tight in Group L though. Athletic Bilbao lead the way with nine points from their opening four games, with Augsburg and Partizan Belgrade sitting in 2nd and 3rd respectively with six points apiece. AZ prop up the group with three points.

      This means that, should Augsburg and Partizan win on Thursday, there could be three teams equal on points heading in to the final group game.

      Athletic Bilbao saw their impressive unbeaten streak come to an end at the weekend as Granada picked up a surprising 2-0 win against the Basque side.

      This was Bilbao’s first loss in eight matches, seven of which they won. This run includes an impressive win over Valencia and a double over Partizan Belgrade, where they scored seven and conceded just once.

      But Bilbao have only won twice in their ten away games this season, with five losses and three draws making up the remainder of the results. This includes a loss to bottom of the group AZ.

      Augsburg have seen three or more goals scored in all of their last six outings, with Bilbao seeing goalfests in four of their last five and seven of their last nine games. This makes odds of 7/10 for Over 2.5 Goals look really good value to me, and I’m also going for a 2-2 correct score prediction at 11/1.
