Bundesliga Matchday 1 Betting Tips – FC Augsburg
Augsburg parted ways with Markus Weinzierl at the end of his contract and appointed Enrico Maaßen as the new manager for his first job at the top-flight.
The club has added some interesting signings in the summer which should strengthen the team a bit this season. Rafal Gikiewicz is the goalkeeper of the side while Reece Oxford, Felix Uduokhai and skipper Jeffrey Gouweleeuw are going to be the 3-man central-defensive partnership. Iago will be the wing-back on the left-flank while Robert Gumny could be preferred over Daniel Caligiuri on the right.
Niklas Dorsch and Tobias Strobl are both injured so the new signing Elvis Rexhbecaj is certain to take the anchorman role with Carlos Gruezo and Arne Maier as the two central-midfielders alongside him. Michael Gregoritsch is the big absentee after leaving the club on a free-transfer therefore André Hahn could be deployed as the centre-forward partner for Florian Niederlechner.

Bundesliga Matchday 1 Betting Tips – SC Freiburg
Freiburg enjoyed an excellent campaign last season but Christian Streich will have a new challenge maintaining league-form alongside its European commitments.
Nico Schlotterbeck left the club during the summer for a hefty fee but the team has largely remained intact while the club made a few clever moves in the transfer-market without splurging a vast sum to fortify different areas of the pitch. Mark Flekken will be the goalkeeper of the side while Matthias Ginter has returned to his old club and is going to form the centre-back pairing with Philipp Lienhart.
Lukas Kübler will take up the right-back spot with skipper Christian Günter on the left-side of the defence. Maximilian Eggestein and Nicolas Höfler are the central-midfielders of the line-up with Jeong Woo-Yeong taking a free-roaming role. Michael Gregoritsch will face his former club after the centre-forward completed a move to Freiburg this summer. Vincenzo Grifo and Roland Sallai will be the two wingers of the side.

Bundesliga Matchday 1 Professional Betting Tips
Total Goals: Under 2. 5
Bundesliga Matchday 1 Betting Tip – Augsburg often struggled to score goals and barely managed to score more than 1 goal per game last season. Freiburg does not score many away from home and averaged less than 1.5 goals per game on the road.
Highest Scoring Half: 2nd half
Bundesliga Matchday 1 Betting Tip – There will probably not be any early goals as Augsburg and Freiburg are quite pragmatic sides. In the first game of the Bundesliga season, both teams will be quite conservative and the goals are more likely to come in the latter-half.
1st Half Result: Draw
Bundesliga Matchday 1 Betting Tip – This will be a pretty evenly-matched contest even though the two teams finished at different sides of the table last season. So the chances of the 1st half ending as a draw are quite high.
