Augsburg finished thirteenth in the German Bundesliga last season, with Markus Weinzierl hoping to build on this successful platform and there certainly aren’t great expectations at the WWK Arena, with Niklas Dorsch having arrived for £6 million which is quite a big transfer fee by this club’s standards.

The former Gent midfielder will certainly add quality and has made appearances for the Germany Under-21 side, with Augsburg having looked pretty solid on home ground last term and they will welcome back some passionate supporters for this clash.

Hoffenheim are an attack-minded side who finished eleventh in the 2020-21 German Bundesliga table, with Sebastian Hoeneß tasked with leading this team into the new campaign and the arrival of Stiller from Bayern Munich could be a profitable one.

The visitors are not a team to generally be trusted from a defensive point-of-view and we are therefore going to go for a bet on both teams to find the net during this ninety minute encounter. This means we need both sides to score and you could alternatively bet on Over 2.5 Goals.
