THE PREDICTION

Augsburg are riding the crest off a wave following their stunning 2-1 triumph over league leaders and reigning champions Bayern Munich last time out. The big challenge now is whether they can back that up away at a woefully out of form Hertha. The hosts suffered defeat last Saturday against bitter rivals Union and their fans will no doubt be demanding a strong response. Hertha have no choice but to push bodies forward at every opportunity here, with nothing less than an ultra-attacking playstyle likely to be accepted by the home crowd. However, whilst this may see them create more clear-cut opportunities, it is also likely to give Augsburg the chance to hit them on the counter-attack, taking advantage of any additional space inside the opposition half. With this in mind, seriously consider backing both teams to score in this one.
