Augsburg will look to end a torrid run of results when they host Union Berlin at home in the Bundesliga on Saturday.

Both sides lost their previous game in the league. Augsburg lost 1-0 to Bayern Munich in the Bavarian derby while Union Berlin were beaten 1-0 by RB Leipzig.

After facing two of the top four sides in the last couple of games in the league, Union Berlin will perhaps be favorites for the game against Augsburg.

The Bavarians, on the other hand, will look to stay in the game and spring a surprise. They have managed just one goal in the last three games, which have all ended in defeats.


Augsburg vs Union Berlin Head-to-head

The two sides have faced off three times in the Bundesliga, and the head-to-head record is even. Augsburg have won once, and lost once, while the other encounter ended in a draw.

If you include results from the 2.Bundesliga, though, Augsburg have one more victory than Union Berlin. Augsburg lost their last home game against Union Berlin, and will look to avenge that come Saturday.

Augsburg vs Union Berlin Prediction

Augsburg put in a dogged display against Bayern Munich and were perhaps unlucky not to get something from the game.

They are likely to come up short against Union, who have been solid defensively and have often got the job done up front. We are expecting Union Berlin to come out on top in this fixture.

Score prediction: Augsburg 1-2 Union Berlin
