Augsburg hosts Union Berlin in round 21 of the German Bundesliga. The match will be played on Saturday, February 5th at WWK Arena (Augsburg)
Augsburg is one of the fighters for survival. The team is in 16th place in the standings with 19 points scored. The lag behind the saving 15th line is only two points. In 2022, the Fuggers have not gained a single victory: two defeats and one draw. In general, the team has not won in the Bundesliga in five matches in a row (three draws and two losses). During this period, it scored only four goals and conceded ten times. In general, Augsburg has obvious problems with the attack and defense throughout the season. The Fuggers scored only 20 only and conceded 35 times. Only three teams conceded more! But as a fighter for survival, Augsburg shows quite good results at its native stadium: three victories, three draws, and three defeats. Seven games ended with an exchange of goals scored.

Union Berlin is the main sensation of the current German championship. The team is ranked only 15th in terms of the total value of the players! This is unbelievable, because without stars, the Iron Ones are on the 4th line in the standings and outrank such “financial monsters” as RB Leipzig, Borussia Monchengladbach, Wolfsburg, and other more status teams. At the moment, Union Berlin is in excellent form. In the last five matches, it gained three victories and two draws. As I’ve already noted, the metropolitan team shows great results at home (21 points scored in ten games). The Iron Ones have improved their away statistics recently, but in general, they are much more modest than at home (13 points in ten games: three wins, four draws, and three losses. In the last away game, Union Berlin dealt with Borussia Monchengladbach (1-2).
In the first half of the current season, Augsburg and Union Berlin failed to determine the winner. The referee’s final whistle recorded a goalless draw. In the last German championship, Augsburg beat the Iron Ones twice (1-3 and 2-1). Of course, it will not be the top game of this round. But given that both Augsburg and Union Berlin are now extremely motivated, it may turn out to be very interesting. The hosts need to get out of the relegation zone. The visitors should try to gain a foothold in the Champions League zone. Union Berlin has not yet won at WWK Arena. And in general, away matches are definitely not the strongest side of Urs Fischer’s men. I think the opponents will share points in the upcoming game.
