Soccer News – Augsburg-Paderborn
Augsburg hosts Paderborn at the WWK Arena in a game from the 28th round of the Bundesliga. Are you ready to preview this game with us? Let’s begin!
Sunday was a great day for Augsburg as the club recorded its 8th win for the season. It was a first win for the manager Heiko Herrlich as well. He and his team travelled to the Veltins Arena to face Schalke 04 and went home with an impressive 3-0 win.
Eduard Lowen opened the score for Augsburg after just six minutes of play in Gelsenkirchen, while Noah Sarenren-Bazee and Sergio Cordova finished the job with two more goals in Marcus Schubert’s net. It was one of Augsburg’s best games for the season. Is Heiko Herrlich the right manager for the club? This was a good statement made by him, that’s for sure.
Paderborn remain at the bottom of the Bundesliga with just 18 points won so far. The struggling club made two draws since the league was restarte two weeks ago. Yes – these are not losses, but Paderborn really need wins right now if they want to survive.
On Saturday Paderborn made their 6th draw for the season. Steffen Baumgart’s team hosted Hoffenheim and secured the point with a 1-1 draw at the Benteler-Arena. The target man Dennis Srbeny scored for Paderborn after just 9 minutes of playing.
Both managers have squad problems before the next game. Augsburg’s Heiko Herrlich can’t use Hahn, Giefer, Asta and Finnboason who are all injured. At the same time Paderborn must deal with the absence of the young defender Luca Jannis who is also not avaliable.
Augsburg and Paderborn are up for a serious battle on Wednesday. Augsburg made a great statement with their win over Schalke 04 during the weekend, while Paderborn remain unbeaten since the quarantine break.
