• Augsburg have lost three of their last four league games vs. Hamburg, including the last two (W1). However, they’ve only recorded more top-flight wins against SVW and VfB (both 7) than vs. HSV (6).
  • The game sees the second-worst home side (FCA: 17 points) face the second-worst away team (HSV: 9 points).
  • Since the introduction of the three-points-per-win rule in 1995/96, HSV have never collected so few points on their travels. They had also taken just nine points from 15 away games in both 2013/14 and 2014/15.
  • Augsburg have lost four of their last five games, only winning their most recent home fixture (2-1 vs. Köln). The Swabians have won just one of their last eight games since the beginning of March (D2, L5).
  • HSV have taken just one point and scored just one goal in their last four games on the road. They’ve lost six of their last eight away matches (W1, D1).
  • Augsburg have let in a league-high 30 goals in the second half of the season. 49 conceded after 30 matchdays is a new unwanted club record.
  • Only HSV (35) have had fewer clear-cut chances than FCA (36, same as Darmstadt).
  • Matthias Ostrzolek left FCA to join HSV in summer 2014. He made 70 Bundesliga appearances for the Bavarian club. Ostrzolek provided five assists for Augsburg in 2013/14 – bettered only by Tobias Werner and Andre Hahn (both 7).
  • Gojko Kacar played for Hamburger SV for six years, before moving to Augsburg in summer 2016. He scored seven goals and provided two assists in 79 top-flight games for HSV.
  • Markus Gisdol has won four of his six Bundesliga meetings with FCA – more than against any other current top-flight team. But he has lost the remaining two games, both of which took place in Augsburg.
  • The 1-0 defeat in the reverse fixture was Dirk Schuster’s last game in charge of Augsburg. He was then replaced by Manuel Baum.
