TSG 1899 Hoffenheim will appear in the second game of the Bundesliga under new coach Pellegrino Matarazzo with a four-position change. After the 1: 3 in Matarazzo's unsuccessful debut against Bayer 04 Leverkusen, the experienced player Kevin Vogt, who is fit again, comes into the team on Friday evening against FC Augsburg as a stabilizer in the defense. "Kevin is a player who can lead. He knows what I want to see," said Coach Matarazzo at DAZN.
Winter signing Kasper Dolberg can play in attack for the Kraichgauers who have not won in ten games. The Croatian Andrej Kramaric has to go to the bench. "It has nothing to do with Andrej. Kasper made a good impression in the last game, so I really wanted him on the pitch," explained Matarazzo.
At Augsburg, coach Enrico Maaßen has new signing Kelvin Yeboah in the starting XI for the first time alongside striker Mergim Berisha. The 22-year-old Italian had played five times as a substitute. FCA won their first two home games this year 1-0.
