Hoffenheim are playing their last game of the season with so much pride after booking a place in next season’s UEFA Champions league while Augsburg need at least one point from this game to stay out of the relegation playoff zone.

Hoffenheim’s season couldn’t be better for a team from a small town coached by a 29 year old manager.

They have qualified for the Champions league for the first time in their history.

They are currently fourth in the league table with 61 points, 12 points more than 5th placed Hertha BSC.

They have six wins from their last 10 league games and 2 wins from their last 3.

Their recent home form is solid – they have won all 7 of their last 7 home games and have kept clean sheets in five of those matches.

Augsburg have had a bad season for a team that competed in the Europa League last season.

They are currently 14th in the league table with 37 points – just 2 points ahead of 16th placed Hamburg who are in the relegation playoff spot.

They recently picked up form and got two consecutive credible 1-1 draws against Borussia Monchenglabach and Borrussia Dortmund is their last 2 games.

They need at least a point in this game to be guaranteed safety.
