The last weekend of Bundesliga action will be covered in full here at Sportschatplace and one of the games of the round will be Hamburg against Augsburg. Both of these teams come into this game in terrific form and have both won three of their last five in all competitions. Hamburg had a terrific win over Borussia Dortmund here at the Volkparstadion four weeks ago and former Tottenham midfielder Lewis Holtby was terrific in that game scoring one setting one up and being involved in everything that Hamburg did well. With Lasogga finding some form in front of goals Hamburg have moved right up to mid table and are peeking up at the European places, a win here could bring them up to sixth.
With Augsburg struggling for most of the season they have come good in recent weeks and have won three of their last five and are in good form. Augsburg have won four of their last five away from home as well and really are playing very good football right now. Cauiby, Esswen and Bobadila are the key men going forward for Augsburg and while they havent been free scoring this season they have found the net in recent weeks and look like a dangerous team right now with a good win against Schalke two weeks ago they proved they can play with the big boys and win. Midweek against Borussia Dortmund Augsburg also played really well but got hit on the break twice.
I think that playing so many games has to catch up to Augsburg eventually and I am taking the fresher Hamburg here. Hamburg have been excellent of late and I think they get a win here that could bring them into the top six in the Bundesliga for the Christmas break. Hamburg have one of the best fanbases in football and I fully expect the atmosphere on Saturday to be epic in the last game for them before the Winter Break.
