Both Teams to Score

Augsburg have rattled the net at least once in eight of their last nine Bundesliga home fixtures and they should be able to manufacture and convert a chance against Schalke on Saturday.

That opens up an avenue of approach for bettors in the both teams to score market this weekend.

Augsburg vs Schalke Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates, Augsburg vs Schalke lineups and team news for Saturday’s Bundesliga skirmish below.

Augsburg

Augsburg could be without the services of Fredrik Jensen, Felix Uduokhai, Reece Oxford, Niklas Dorsch, Andre Hahn and Tobias Strobl again this weekend. ADie Fuggerstädter were beaten 5-3 at Bayern Munich last weekend and the results continue to swing wildly from good to bad in the Bundesliga.

Predicted Lineup for Augsburg: Gikiewicz – Gumny, Gouweleeuw, Bauer, Pedersen – Baumgartlinger, Engels, Maier, Demirovic, Beljo – Berisha

Schalke

Schalke have a lengthy list of absentees which includes Sepp van den Berg, Dominick Drexler, Danny Latza, Ere Uronen and Tim Starke, while Sebastian Polter remains a long-term absentee alongside Justin Heekeren. Schalke took a confidence-building point from their Rivierderby clash with Dortmund last week.

Predicted Lineup for Schalke: Fahrmann – Brunner, Yoshida, Jentz, Matriciani – Kral, Krauß – Zalazar, Bulter, Aydin – Frey

Player to Watch – Marius Bülter

Marius Bülter grabbed a goal and an assist for Schalke in last weekend’s derby skirmish with Dortmund and the 29-year-old has now chipped in with four goal contributions in his last three appearances in the Bundesliga. If Bülter can maintain his form, Schalke could have a proper go at maintaining their top-flight status.
