Hertha Berlin has 35 points from 28 league appearances and have scored 41 goals so far this season.

Dodi has 6 goals and 5 assists for Hertha Berlin this season. Meanwhile, Vedad Ibisevic will be also feature in the attack at some point.

Meanwhile, Augsburg who are currently playing a goal less draw against SC Paderborn (at the time of filing this report) will be in for their 29th league appearances of the season. Augsburg are currently positioned 12th place on the league table. Augsburg are in poor form with only one victory in six games; DLLLLW. They have 8W, 6D and 13L in 27 league appearances.

Heiko Herrlich would be happy to escape a defeat once more on Saturday when his side takes on Hertha Berlin.A 4-2-3-1 formation is expected from the Augsburg’s coach. Star player, Florian Niederlechner who has failed to extend his tally of goals in recent times will be looking to do so on Saturday. He will remain a threat for Hertha Berlin with his 6 assists and 11 Bundesliga goals.

The first leg which took place in November, 2019 ended in a 4-0 victory for Augsburg. Previously, they played in May 2019. That match ended in Hertha Berlin’s favor, 4-3. Before those two meetings they played once again and it ended 2-2.

It will be an interesting mid-table contest as both sides enter the match knowing they need to pick up maximum points. It looks likely this will end in a draw.

A 2-2 draw is predicted at fulltime.
