Reason For Schalke vs Augsburg Predictions

  • Schalke have lost only one of their previous 12 home league matches.
  • Augsburg have lost eight of their 13 away matches in the Bundesliga this season.
  • Five of Schalke’s nine league wins this term have been by a single-goal margin.

Disappointment reigns for both clubs on resumption

Schalke were blown apart 4-0 by rivals Borussia Dortmund in the Ruhr Derby upon their return to Bundesliga action but their home results have been steady this term and we predict they can edge lowly Augsburg.

Their Bavarian opponents did not fare much better last weekend, losing 2-1 at home to Wolfsburg by virtue of an injury-time strike from striker Daniel Ginczek, extending their winless run in the league to six matches.

Augsburg have, in fairness, played many of the Bundesliga big boys of late, losing to Eintracht Frankfurt, Bayer Leverkusen, Borussia Monchengladbach and Bayern Munich before the break.

But they have not looked convincing on their travels against anyone, collecting only nine points from their 13 road matches, eight of which they have lost this season.

They have, in fact, not won away from home in the league since their 4-2 defeat of Hoffenheim back in mid-December and even on that occasion they lost the shot count 16-5 and saw only 30 per cent of the ball.

Schalke aim for return to scoring form

Schalke looked toothless in the final third against Dortmund, with neither starting forward Benito Raman nor substitute Guido Burgstaller capable of causing their opponents any problems, but the club’s games have featured goals this season.

The Royal Blues have failed to net in only three of their 13 home matches and have scored in seven of their last eight matches in their own backyard. 

As for Augsburg, their matches have featured an average of 3.5 goals this season and six of their 13 away fixtures have featured over 3.5 goals.

Both teams have scored in 17 of Augsburg’s 26 matches this term and that points to goals in this clash, as there was in November’s reverse fixture when Schalke prevailed 3-2 in Bavaria.

Schalke expected to improve on home soil

Schalke should take the spoils given 21 of their 37 points this term have come at their Veltins-Arena home but punters should not ignore the fact David Wagner’s men have shipped 13 goals in their last four matches.

That included a 5-0 demolition by Leipzig and the chopping and changing between a back three and a back four does not seem to be helping so they are likely to concede a consolation goal. That renders a 2-1 win for Schalke a solid selection for our correct score prediction.
