17th and 13th will meet in the Bundesliga this weekend as Hertha Berlin welcomes Augsburg to the German capital with the home side aiming to get just their fifth win of the season and pull Augsburg closer to relegation in the process.
It’s been another terrible season for Hertha this campaign and they have now moved back into automatic relegation after a loss to Borussia Dortmund last weekend. Lucas Tousart would score for the club in the 4-1 loss, as Hertha had nine shots on target at Signal Iduna Park.
Sandro Schwarz’s men did manage to defeat Borussia Monchengladbach two weeks ago, however, as Jessic Ngankam, Marton Dardai, Derry Scherhant and Dodi Lukebakio all got in on the act.
As for Augsburg, they’ve managed to win twice in February from their three games so far, as only Mainz has defeated them within the past three weeks.
The club have gone on to defeat Bayer Leverkusen 1-0 and Hoffenheim 1-0, with both victories coming on home soil. Regardless of this decent run of form, the club sit in 13th and only above the drop zone by five points.
