Hoffenheim come into this encounter knowing that a victory for them and a slip from Dortmund will see them overtake Dortmund to the automatic spot of qualification for the Champions League next season. Hoffenheim have been in a team in great scoring form and are the 3rd highest scorers in the Bundesliga across the season and at home. They have relied on the likes of Wagner, Kramaric, Szalai and Uth who have scored 41 goals among them this season. Hoffenheim have won 7 straight games since the turn of the new year while conceding only 4 goals in that span showcasing their strong defensive showing. They had scored 19 goals in that span.
Augsburg have managed to some how survive the automatic relegation chances this season and will hope results go their way in order to survive incase they cannot battle this Hoffenheim onslaught which they will face tonight. Hoffenheim have a great motivation and great home form when they take on Augsburg. While Augburg have won only 2 games in their lat 11 encounters, some draws that they have stolen against Dortmund, Gladbach, Freiburg and Leipzig have given them 4 critical points against good top half teams to keep them with a chance of survival for the season.
Hoffenheim have been the better of the match up between the 2 sides beating them 2-0 already this season and winning 5 out of their last 6 games; so I am backing Hoffenheim to win this game by a 2 goal margin like they did in 4 out of their 5 wins. Hoffenheim win with an Asian Handicap of -1 .
