After losing narrowly to Xavi Alonso’s high-flying Bayer Leverkusen last weekend, Union Berlin will be desperate to improve their form in Friday’s trip to Augsburg. Die Eisernen arrive for the 19.30 BST kickoff hoping to solidify a mid-table position and avoid flirting with relegation as the season comes to a close.

Ermedin Demirovic has been in fantastic form since the turn of the year for Augsburg, with 11 goal involvements in just 10 Bundesliga matches. Still six points off Frankfurt in sixth and hoping to snatch a European place for next season, Augsburg need a big finish to give themselves a chance. Unbeaten in four of their last five, our Augsburg vs Union Berlin predictions foresee another disappointing night for Union fans.

Augsburg v Union Berlin Betting Tips

  • Augsburg to win 3-0 @ 16/1
  • Ermedin Demirovic to score first @ 5/1

Team news

Augsburg attacking midfielder Fredrik Jensen suffered calf problems at the start of the month but could return after two weeks of recovery. They are still without long-term absentees Reece Oxford (muscular problems) and Raphael Framberger (cruciate ligament tear), who have yet to make an appearance since suffering season-long injuries during the club’s pre-season preparations.

Union Berlin striker Kevin Volland is doubtful with a knock sustained against Leverkusen and Robin Gosens’ red card last weekend keeps him locked out of this weekend’s contest. Alongside Gosens, Lucas Tousart's yellow card meant he breached his quota for the season and will serve a one-match ban for reaching five yellow cards.

Match odds

Augsburg are heavy favourites at 21/20, while Union Berlin sit at 5/2. You can get 13/5 for the draw and 8/11 for both teams to score.

Augsburg to win 3-0 @ 16/1

There have been more than 2.5 goals in five of the past seven games involving Augsburg. Although the hosts are without a clean sheet in their past three games, Union Berlin are without a goal in their past two matches. Having scored 20 more goals than Union Berlin and 14 in their last seven, Augsburg should recover from their 3-1 loss to Hoffenheim in emphatic fashion.

Augsburg to win 3-0 @ 16/1

Ermedin Demirovic to score first @ 5/1

Sitting fifth in the Bundesliga goal-scoring charts and with seven goals in 11 appearances in 2024, Demirovic is in fine form for Augsburg. Leading the team with the captain’s armband in the most prolific season of his career so far, the Bosnian will be keen to finish with a flourish to sneak into the European spots as the season comes to a close. He’s our firm favourite to gain the early advantage on Friday night.
