Augsburg – Schalke 26.01.2013
The hosts are sitting in a danger zone with just 12 points and a 15:31(goal difference) record not forgetting their two wins in their last five recent league games
. Their home matches reflect them 3rd from bottom though the general results are having them placed second from the bottom, so I am of a view that they are not that good in this match than having a home advantage. They will be missing Ottl, Petrzela, Sio and Bance both strikers and also defender Verhaegh will be questionable. Back to our visitors, they are two points away from a promising position which might give them hopes of Champions league ticket and are having 32:29 record with just one win in their last five league games. They have to improve on their performance if they are to maintain their hopes and I am seeing this match as an added advantage to their success though they are away.
Match: Augsburg – Schalke 15.30h
League: Germany 1
Our prediction: Away Win Odds: 2.00
Augsburg is not so good and the quality of the visitors has the potential to grab the three points regardless of their missings of Affelay, Papadopolous and suspended Jones but the good news is that Huntelaar is back to help his team and the missings will not be of much effect compared to the quality we are to experience between these two teams. The visitors have had three wins in the last five recent ties and I am expecting them to also add this one on their cv.
