Date: Saturday, May 30
Kick-off: 14:30 pm
Venue: Olympiastadion Berlin
Having racked up two outstanding victories against Hoffenheim and Union Berlin, before the entertaining 2-2 draw with Leipzig last time, Hertha Berlin can be proud of their efforts and will now set their sights to edging into the top half of the Bundesliga standings starting from this one.
Augsburg on their part, put up their best display since the return of football on their last travel when they walloped Schalke 3-0 in one hell of a fantastic performance. They come into this one on the back of a goalless draw with Paderborn on Wednesday, and surely will be no pushovers.
Die Fuggerstädter ran out 4-0 winners in the reverse fixture in November 2019, but will they upset the favourites yet again?
Marvin Plattenhardt suffered a minor concussion in midweek and will be assessed nearer the weekend.
Maximilian Mittelstädt is also struggling with a thigh injury. Meanwhile, Salomon Kalou has been suspended after filming
himself flaunting COVID-19 rules.
Marius Wolf and Santiago Ascacibar are struggling with foot injuries and are doubts to feature here.
Jeffrey Gouweleeuw is suspended after racking up five yellow cards.
While Simon Asta will not play again this season after suffering an ACL tear, André Hahn and Alfred Finnbogason are both rated doubtful for the trip to Berlin.

Hertha Berlin last five matches in all competitions: DDWWD
Augsburg last five matches in all competitions: LLLWD
Though Hertha Berlin are very much the favourites here by virtue of home advantage and of course their sterling showings in recent games, one will expect the visitors to take the game to them, and pose some level of attacking threats when going up to the other end.
That surely will make for an open, eye-catching encounter which would see both sides go for the jugular. At odds of 4/6, Both Teams To Score looks promising to pay out on this game, and should be one market punters pay serious attention to here.
Over 2.5 at 3/4 is another interesting option to take, bearing in mind that the two sides will look to exchange some goals in their bid to keep up their recent good forms. Over 3.5 (2/1) is also tempting enough to pick from the goals market here.
