Reason For Hertha Berlin vs Augsburg Betting Tips

Hertha Berlin boss Pal Dardai will be hoping that last weekend’s 2-1 defeat in Stuttgart is just a bump in the road after their prior three-game unbeaten prior. Seven points from their last four outings (W2 D1 L1) has still seen them climb back into top-six contention though, below 5th place Frankfurt and 6th place Hoffenheim on goal difference alone. Hertha’s upturn in fortunes did tie in with Marko Grujic’s return so it came as a huge blow to them when he withdrew from training last week with another injury. Given Hertha’s form in the matches he has missed (W1 D3 L3), there’s more reason than ever to believe this might be a closer affair than it first appears.

Luckily for them Augsburg have been struggling for results recently, taking just one point from their last five (D1 L4). Manuel Baum’s men were a formidable side earlier in the season, being the first Bundesliga team to take points away from the Allianz Arena with a 1-1 draw against Bayern, while also testing league leaders Dortmund in a 4-3 thrilling defeat, but their drop in form has also correlated to an absent player – top goalscorer Alfred Finnbogason. He scored seven league goals in six outings before being sidelined with a groin injury, and though he’s back playing again, he’s yet to get on the score-sheet since returning two games back.

Going off that, we feel the most obvious angle for this game is in the under 2.5 goals market, if not only for the fact that nine of the last ten meetings between them have seen two goals or fewer. Hertha’s Olympiastadion has been a tough venue for visiting teams this season, and a struggling Finnbogason will have a hard time getting back to his best there. Hertha have kept a clean sheet in a massive 43% of their home outings this season, and despite a number of defensive injuries (see team news), the Berliners’ makeshift defense has also kept a clean sheet in two of their last three Bundesliga matches as well, which includes a 1-0 home win over Eintracht Frankfurt – the joint-fourth best offense in the Bundesliga.

Whether Hertha can take advantage of Augsburg’s poor defensive form is the next question, and while they look a good bet, it might not be as easy without midfielder Grujic. Hertha are doing much better than predicted in their home matches this season based on expected goals – i.e. the Berliners have been getting “lucky” – which will no doubt even out over time, but fortunately for them, Augsburg are one of the worst travelling sides in the Bundesliga too, losing in four of their last five on the road (W1 L4). Notably, each of those defeats has been by exactly one goal, so we’re going for a small home win. Our prediction: 1-0 Hertha.

Head to Head

Hertha Berlin drew 2-2 at home to Augsburg when the two sides last met in April. Augsburg have never beaten Hertha in Berlin (D4 L3).
