Hamburger SV vs Augsburg Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Two sides that narrowly avoided the relegation playoff last season will meet on the opening day of the 2017/18 season when Hamburg play host Augsburg in the Bundesliga. Both sides finished level on 38 points last season, with the hosts finishing a place behind Augsburg due to a much worse goal difference. Hamburg have already started the official season with a loss as they went out of the DFB Pokal on Sunday to Osnabruck away by a score of 3-1. Bobby Wood scored a penalty to give them a consolation goal in the 74th minute, but they had fallen too far behind. Much like Hamburg, the visitors also lost their cup match. Augsburg, though, failed to register a goal as they lost 2-0 away to Magdeburg on Sunday. Below we have our betting tips, predictions, team news and match stats all in our SBAT preview.

Betting Tips and Predictions

These sides have just one draw between them so far in 12 matches, so surely we can just about rule that out. Last season, they slip the points three and three. Augsburg won 4-0 at home, while Hamburg won 1-0 at home back in December before Baum took over. It's a tough one to call with neither side doing very well of late last season or in the summer, so the home side has to be favored. Hamburg to win is at 11/10. However, you can improve those odds by taking them to also keep a clean sheet at 5/2.

Hamburger SV Preview

Markus Gisdol has remained as manager at Hamburg, but it might only be a matter of time before that changes if results continue as they have gone of late. The German manager is approaching one year in charge, and must know his time is short if they continue to play as they have. One great hope that he's been able to hang on to is striker Bobby Wood, who helped them stay up last term. He's also brought in Andre Hahn to help up top. The other big signings they've made are goalkeeper Julian Pollersbeck and center back Kyriakos Papadopoulos, but it remains to be seen whether those will be enough for them.

Hamburger SV Team News

Hamburg will be without center back Bjarne Thoelke, center midfielder Albin Ekdal, and left winger Filip Kostic due to various injuries.

Augsburg Preview

Manuel Baum, another German, has also kept his job after taking over in December and doing a reasonable job. Under his watch, they gained 24 out of their 38 points, showing they did improve somewhat under him. This is a side that were in the Europa League playing Liverpool not too far back, so they do have the ability to surprise teams. A number of changes have been made, but the big ones include signing forward Michael Gregoritsch, right winger Marcel Heller, and right back Daniel Opare.

Augsburg Team News

Augsburg already have a fairly substantial problem up front as both Raul Bobadilla and Dong Won Ji are out with injuries. Left winger Caiuby, defensive midfielder Gojko Kacar, and left back Konstantinos Stafylidis are also likely to be out.
