      « Reply #1 on: May 05 2016, 12:03 »

      Schalke 04 and Augsburg meet at Veltins‑Arena, in a match for the 33ª round of the Bundesliga. Augsburg got a home win by (2‑1), in the last league head‑to‑head, played in 13‑12‑2015. The head‑to‑head history at this stadium, favours the home team, since in the last 4 head‑to‑heads they won 4, tied 0 and lost 0. Accordingly, in the last head‑to‑head played at this stadium, for the Bundesliga, on 31‑10‑2014, Schalke 04 won by (1‑0). K. Huntelaar (37' ) scored the only goal of the match. The home/away factor is worth special atention, since although this is a match between 6º and 12º of the league table, it’s also a match between the 7º best team in home matches and the 5º best in away matches.

      Analysis of Schalke 04

      After 14 wins, 6 draws and 12 losses, the home team is in the 6ª position, havinf won 48 points so far. In the last match, they have won in an away match against Hannover 96 by (1‑3), after in the previous match they have lost (2‑3) at home, against Bayer Leverkusen. This is a team that maintains its competitive levels in home and away matches, since they have had similar results in both conditions. For the league, Schalke 04 won 17 points out of 30 possible points, after 5 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses in the last 10 home matches.

      They haven't been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition. There is a tendency for goals in their home matches, since 11 of the last 16 for this competition have ended with Over 2,5 goals. They have conceded the first goal in 14 of their 32 matches for this competition, and have only turned the score around in 1.

      Schalke 04 comes for this match after a win at Hannover’s home, returning to winning ways after four matches. In this match the coach André Breitenreiter should keep the usual 4-2-3-1, with Huntelaar being the forward player of the home team. It must be observed that the Netherlands is the best scorer of the team with 10 goals scored. Even so, it’s possible to watch a very interventionist Schalke in the left flank due to the technical quality of the Cameroon Maxim Choupo-Moting. To point out that the home team has some weaknesses in defensive transition and the defensive dead balls. For this match the coach won’t count on Sidney Sam, Uchida, Goretzka, Giefer, Nastasić and Hoger, injured.

      Analysis of Augsburg

      The away team is currently in the 12ª position of the league, with 37 points won, after 9 wins, 10 draws and 13 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in an away match against o Wolfsburg, by (0‑2). In the last match, they tied in a home match against o Köln, by (0‑0). This is a team that usually gets better results in away matches than at home, since they have won 22 points in away matches and 15 at their stadium, with 17 goals scored and 24 conceded at home, against 23 goals scored and 24 conceded in away matches. In the last 10 away league matches Augsburg has a record of 5 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses, so they have won 17 points out of 30 possible.

      Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 32 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 13 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

      Augsburg comes for this match after a home draw against Cologne, adding the fourth consecutive match without winning. The home team chooses to use a very defensive strategy, with a line of four defenders, five midfielders and only one forward. Finnbogason is the most offensive reference of the visiting team. However, it should be recalled that Ja-Cheol Koo is the best scorer with 8 goals. Even so, the visiting team has huge gaps in the defensive dead balls, attack-defense transition and maintaining ball possession. For this match the coach Markus Weinzierl won’t count on Verhaegh, Esswein, Trochowski, Framberger, Manninger, Klavan and Daniel Opare, injured.

      Betting suggestion:

      The most likely scenario for this match will be Schalke 04 to score on two occasions. In this match it’s expectable that Schalke 04 will dominate much of the match and enjoy more opportunities to score, not only by playing at home, but especially for the offensive quality that holds in their squad. Besides this, Augsburg has some defensive gaps that will make a difference in this match.
