With just one loss in their last five league games before the winter break, FC Augsburg will be looking to continue their good form when they host Hoffenheim at the SGL Arena in the 17th round of the German Bundesliga.
The hosts have been in a pretty solid form before the winter break. Augsburg have lost only one game in their last five league games when they fell in the trap of Hamburg away from home. The team have been slowly climbing up the table in recent weeks. They have collected 6 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games. Their last game before the break was against Borussia Dortmund away from home where they drew 1-1.
Augsburg are currently sitting in the 12th place in the Bundesliga table with 18 points from 4 wins, 6 draws and 6 losses. They have scored 13 goals and conceded 17 since the start of the campaign.
Gojko Kacar or Dominik Kohr could get a chance in defensive midfield if Daniel Baier does not recover from a minor injury in time.
The visitors are the only team in the five major leagues in Europe who are still unbeaten in their local league. Hoffenheim are one of the most solid teams defensively in Europe this season. Despite all these amazing facts, the team have won only one game in their last five league games. They have dropped many points in the process. They have collected 7 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games. Their last game was against Werder Bremen at home where they drew 1-1.

Sebastian Rudy returns from suspension to replace Eugen Polanski in defensive midfield. Steven Zuber should replace the injured Pavel Kaderábek on the right wing.
