Schalke 04 vs Augsburg – Bundesliga Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Match Prediction

This Sunday, Bundesliga action will continue as Match Day 27 gets underway with three matches lined up for the day.

Schalke 04 who lost to Dortmund in an embarrassing 4-0 defeat over the last weekend will be looking for nothing less than a draw this Sunday. Schalke have no victories in their last six league matches; DDLLDL. They moved two spots down the league table after that loss over the weekend — dropping from 6th to 8th place. They now have 9W, 10D and 7L and 37 points from 26 Bundesliga appearances. Schalke 04 has scored 33 goals and conceded 40 at their end. David Wagner, coach of Schalke will likely adopt a 4-4-2 formation with the duo of Benito Raman and Guido Burgstaller leading Schalke’s attack. Both have only four goals shared between them.

Meanwhile, Augsburg who will be away from home come off with a 1-2 defeat to Wolfsburg. This will be their 27th league appearances of the season. Augsburg remain in 14th position despite their loss over the weekend which was the fifth defeat in six matches; LDLLLL. Augsburg now has 7W, 6D and 13L in 26 league appearances. They have scored 37 times this season and have conceded 54 goals. Not much has improved since the arrival of Heiko Herrlich who took over from Martin Schmidt who was sacked on March 9, 2020 following a 2–0 defeat to Bayern Munich. A 4-2-3-1 formation against Schalke 04 is expected. Florian Niederlechner who was unable to score for Augsburg last weekend will now look to extend his 11-goal tally.

The reverse fixture took place in November, 2019. That match ended 2-3 in Schalke’s favor. Daniel Baier (38’) scored first for Augsburg. Later on, Stephen Lichtsteiner (45’) equalized for Schalke 04. Alfred Finnbogason put Augsburg back in the lead 60th minutes into the match before Ozan Kabak (71’) equalized. Amine Harit (82’) scored Schalke’s third goal to snatch a late victory for his team. Before then, they met in May 2019 and it ended in a goal-less draw. Schalke remains unbeaten by Augsburg in their last two meetings and might be able to get away with at least a draw.

A 2-0 victory for Schalke 04 is predicted at full-time.
