With Hertha struggling at the moment and hosting an Augsburg side pushing for European football this game could be a cracker of an encounter. Hertha are deep in a relegation battle at the moment and have lost four of their last five in the league table which is obviously very poor form. With former Chelsea striker Saloman Kalou struggling to find the goals for his new club, Schreiber has been the main man fro Hertha up front although combined both have only managed twelve goals this season and this along with the second worst defence in the league are a couple of the main reasons Hertha are in a relegation battle.
Augsburg have been one of the surprise packages this season and a win here could take them into the top four and in position to claim a place in the Champions League next season. With Altintop leading the way through both his experience and his strong form along with the goals of Bobadilla this is an Augsburg team that while unheralded play good football and are exciting to watch. It is always tough to take an away favourite in the Bundesliga but I have to say Augsburg have impressed me and we cashed a good winner last week as they came from behind twice to draw with Bayer Leverkusen.
I am going to take the overs here as Hertha have one of the worst defences in the league and I think that Augsburg will get a couple here but Hertha have a couple of dangerous attackers and should cause Augsburg some defensive problems themselve. Take the overs and cash a winner.
