Our prediction for this Bundesliga match:
Union Berlin and Augsburg, the two candidates for relegation, face each other at Stadion An der Alten Forsterei in what is expected to be a close encounter. Union Berlin aim to build on the hard-fought DFB Pokal win over Karlsruher, but this match will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. Augsburg, on the other hand, rolled over Eintracht Celle in their German Cup opener.
The Bavarians are high on confidence ahead of the trip to Berlin, and we are positive that they are going to grab something from the match. Summer signing Robert Gumny is widely expected to make his Bundesliga debut on Saturday. Anyhow, share of spoils is on the cards as the two teams seem to be evenly matched ahead of the opening match of the season. It has to be noted that under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of their last three meetings in all competitions.
