In this article, we will give you the best fantasy combinations, probable lineups, team news, key stats and grand league tips for the Bundesliga match between Augsburg v Hoffenheim
Augsburg v Hoffenheim
WWK Augsburg Arena, Augsburg, Germany
18th February, 01:00 a.m.
Augsburg and Hoffenheim face off tonight in Bundesliga action at the WWK Augsburg Arena in Bavaria.
Both sides come into this fixture at the WWK Arena with just two points separating them in the table.
Irrespective of their away form since the World Cup, Augsburg’s home form has been pretty decent with two wins from two games, and they would be hoping to continue the same and pick up all three possible points against Hoffenheim and stay away from the relegation zone.
Hoffenheim, on the other hand, have sacked their manager, Andre Breitenreiter, after he led them on a run where they picked up only two points in nine competitive games. However, the appointment of new manager Pellegrino has not gone well, as he was defeated by Xabi Alonso’s Bayer Leverkusen last week.
He has a big task on his hands to prevent Hoffenheim from sleep-walking towards their first ever relegation from the German top flight.
