Wolfsburg vs Augsburg Predictions

Wolfsburg’s hopes of returning to the UEFA Champions League next season were all but extinguised last weekend as they lost 3-2 away to Werder Bremen, UEFA Europa League qualification however remains a viable possibility. The three teams directly above Wolfsburg (Borussia M’gladbach, Mainz 05 and Schalke 04) are all six points better off, but their are only two Europa League spots to go around. This match against relegation battling FC Augsburg, therefore, is a must win for Dieter Hecking’s men if they are to have any chance of Europea League qualification.

Visitors FC Augsburg have turned around a six game winless streak (D2 L4), in which they only earned two points, with back-to-back wins against Werder Bremen and VfB Stuttgart in their last two in the Bundesliga. Augsburg have climbed out of immediate danger and can take some comfort in the two-point cushion above the relegation zone, but they are by no means safe yet with some difficult fixtures to end their campaign.

Wolfsburg may currently be the joint weakest team in the Bundesliga over the last five matchdays (D2 L3), along with Stuttgart, but they are in decent current home  with three wins and two draws from their last five, including notable wins against Real Madrid in the Champions League and Borussia M’gladbach. Contrastingly, strugglers FC Augsburg have been weak away from home in recent weeks – their win against Werder Bremen was far from “deserved” and before that two losses and a draw. Augsburg may have won five matches away from home this season, but they have always been against teams in the bottom half of the table, a category Wolfsburg do not find themselves in. Wolfsburg are without wingers Andre Schurrle and Julian Draxler, but Bas Dost (8 goals in 18 Bundesliga appearances) and Daniel Caligiuri have returned to fitness in recent weeks and strengthen the Wolfsburg lineup. Combining this analysis with the statistics below, we expect Wolfsburg to take all three points away from this match with a final score of Wolfsburg 2-1 at 15/2 to be a likely outcome.
