Did you know that…

…TSG tend to fare well on their travels to the WWK Arena?

TSG have won a total of six Bundesliga away games against FC Augsburg – more than they have managed against any other opponent in the division. In fact, FCA have won only one of their last six home games against Hoffenheim.

…Augsburg have never managed to win on home soil on the opening day of a Bundesliga season?

FC Augsburg have played at home on the opening day of a Bundesliga season five times since their promotion in 2011. The Bavarians have picked up only one point across those five matches, losing on four occasions. FCA have lost each of their last four home games on the opening day without scoring a goal.

…no Bundesliga club is on a longer unbeaten run than TSG?

TSG are unbeaten in their last seven Bundesliga games (three wins and four draws). Only Borussia Dortmund have matched that feat over the same period. The last time Hoffenheim put together such a long undefeated streak in the Bundesliga was at the end of 2018, when they went 10 games without a loss.

…the player with the most assists in the second division last term now plays for TSG?

TSG's new signing David Raum set up 13 goals during the 2020/21 season while playing for SpVgg Greuther Fürth – a joint league high shared with Robert Zulj, who managed the same feat for VfL Bochum. That means Raum has the third-most assists in a second-tier season since data collection began.

…Augsburg coach Markus Weinzierl has a bad record against Hoffenheim?

The 46-year-old's teams are winless in six matches against TSG (two draws and four defeats). His last victory against Hoffenheim came with FC Augsburg more than six years ago. Since then, he has taken a point against TSG on only two occasions – with Schalke and Stuttgart respectively.
