Augsburg vs Hertha Berlin
German Bundesliga
Date: Saturday 19th November, 2016
Kick-off: 14:30 UK
Venue: WWK Arena, Augsburg.

Augsburg is currently at the 13th spot of the German top flight table after ten rounds of competitions.

The team has snapped a four-game winless spell after beating a 10-man FC Ingolstadt 04 side, 2-0, on the road at the Audi Sportpark on Nov. 5, as per the league's official website.

It was a scoreless count for most of the match until Paraguayan winger Raul Bobadilla broke the deadlock in the 85th minute from a free kick with a right-footed strike to the center of Ingolstadt keeper Martin Hansen's net.

Turkish winger Halil Altintop then sealed the win right at the stroke of full-time after Ingolstadt defender Tobias Levels was booked with a red card in the 89th and was sent off the field.

Meanwhile, capital city club Hertha Berlin demolished struggling contenders Borussia Monchengladbach, 3-0, at their home ground of Olympiastadion on Nov. 4 to bounce back from their loss in the previous round, BBC Sport reported.

Ivorian forward Salomon Kalou was the man of the match for head coach Pál Dárdai's squad as he unleashed a hat trick during the contest.

Kalou opened the scoring in the 18th minute with a header from the center of the box off an assist from defender Mitchell Weiser. He then doubled the lead in the 33rd with another goal, this time a right-footer towards the bottom right corner of the net.

A second yellow card was called on Monchengladbach midfielder Christoph Kramer in the 39th, sending him off the pitch and putting the visitors in a one-man disadvantage.

Kalou then sealed the win with his third goal of the game in the 84th minute off another assist by Weiser.

Augsburg vs Hertha Berlin: Head-to-Head Stats

If we are to judge by the head to head encounters, we can say that the fans will be super disappointed this Saturday. Amazingly, the last six matches between the two sides offered no more than three goals in total, as three of the games ended goalless! When you look at the match from this perspective, the 11/20 odds offered by the bookmakers on Under 2.5 goals in the match seem golden!

Augsburg vs Hertha Berlin: Prediction

We can’t resist but to try with Hertha BSC to win the match here at super attractive 19/10 odds since they have generally been much better team throughout the course of the season and we can’t say why they would not claim three points against the average Augsburg. Vedad Ibisevic to maintain his fine form and score any-time seems as a yet another decent betting alternative, given at the odds of 13/8!
