Augsburg – Wolfsburg
Augsburg hosts Wolfsburg at the WWK Arena in a match from the 20th round of the Bundesliga. Here is our preview for this fixture. Are you ready to go?
Augsburg find themselves at 13th place in the current Bundesliga standings. Heiko Herrlich’s team have won 22 points so far and have a record of 6 wins, 4 draws and 9 losses. At this moment Augsburg are five points ahead of the 16th Arminia Bielefeld and the relegation playoff spot. They could do a little bit better – that’s clear. And most probably they will try to.
Augsburg have problems with their current shape, though. They have lost four of their last five matches in the Bundesliga. In the previous round Herrlich’s team had a tough visit to Borussia Dortmund which ended with a 1-3 defeat. Andre Hahn opened the score for the visitors, but after this Die Borussen scored three times and turned it around.
Wolfsburg are doing much, much better than their next opponents. The Wolves are fighting for a return to the Champions League. At this moment they are third with 35 points won. They have also lost just two times this season which proves how good they are right now.
In their last game Wolfsburg scored a third consecutive win in the Bundesliga. Oliver Glasner’s team hosted Freiburg at the Volkswagen-Park and enjoyed a 3-0 win. John Brooks opened the score while Wout Weghorst doubled it. The third one was scored by Yannick Gerhardt just five minutes before the end of the game.
That’s the preview for the Bundesliga clash between Augsburg and Wolfsburg at the WWK Arena on Saturday. It’d be interesting to see if Augsburg can do something about their bad form lately. But don’t forget that Wolfsburg are third in the table and they have lost just two times so far.
