HOF Vs AUG Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Augsburg return to the pitch to address more serious matters after having belittled Arsenal previously.
For an Augsburg side fast waning in the Bundesliga, the recent exchange with Arsenal brought about with it much needed cheer for the club. Despondent after falling down in the points tally, the side took a swipe at Xhaka after a Twitter user claimed he was only meant for clubs like Augsburg.
Having successfully ripped Xhaka and Arsenal into shreds, the club now turns back to football as it gets ready to spar with Hoffenheim in the final tie of the ongoing gameweek. After a solid start to the season, the side has been left in angst with the last four out of five matches ending without a win in the side’s favour.
While their opponents of the day, Hoffenheim are in a worse position with the side going without a win in seven successive matches, Augsburg know they await a daunting challenge today. Hoffenheim have been electric in the Europe league, form which the side can easily carry forward into this affair.

This should finally be the outing where Hoffenheim’s mundane run of results comes to an end with their repertoire of attacking names managing to help the side to a one goal win.

Date And Time: 8th December, Tuesday- 1:00am IST

Top Goal Scorer

- Daniel: 3 Goals, 1 Assist
The visiting side’s Rafal Gikiewicz will be inducted into our side as the goal-keeper for today’s event. At a time when the side’s backline has given way to see the ground beneath its feet open up, Rafal has stood firm to withstand the onslaught directed his way.
Not scoring more than once in their last four winless results, Augsburg have had to pay a costly price for their dwindling attacking form. And with Hoffenheim gradually finding their feet as a defensive setup, the home side are clearly in with a better shout of pulling off a cleansheet today.
We begin with Kevin Vogt who has the one assist to his name with Kevin Akpoguma and Stefan Posch giving him company for the day’s encounter.
If there’s one player capable of sparking up Augsburg’s attack and imbuing fresh life into it, its Daniel Caligiuri. He’s scored three goals and assisted the one for his club, a player who has spearheaded the club’s attack this term.
Ruben Vargas who has the three goals as well partners up with him with the home side being represented by an akin partnership. Its one constituting of one goal man Sebastian Rudy and the enigmatic Florian Grillitsch.
Hoffenheim’s top scorer, Andrej Kramaric has been absolutely scrumptious this season for the club. He’s been well aided by Christoph Baumgartner off late who has proved to be an ideal partner to Kramaric with his layups and ability to work the defenders.
Augsburg on the other hand will see us opt for Florian Niederlechner who has the one assist.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Kramaric’s seven goals see him be our captain while Daniel is the vice-captain.
Rafal, Kevin, Vogt, Posch, Rudy, Daniel, Florian, Vargas, Kramaric, Christoph, Florian
