Augsburg vs Wolfsburg Prediction and Tips 16 May 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 1-2
All eyes will be on Bundesliga this weekend as football makes a return following the covid-19 induced pandemic, and Wolfsburg will travel to WWK arena to take on Augsburg in one of the league reopeners.
Match status: 2019/20 Bundesliga - Matchweek 26
Venue: WWK Arena (Augsburg)
The hosts were in abysmal form prior to the break having lost four of their last five league matches. To be fair to Augsburg, three of the five matches were against sides in the top five, but results will have to start improving if they are to further secure their league status for next season. 

Wolfsburg meanwhile, continue their chase for European qualification, and look to pick up where they left off. Die Wolfe are unbeaten in their last six league matches – winning three and drawing three – and they are just one point behind Schalke who occupy the second automatic Europa league qualification spot.

Augsburg vs Wolfsburg Team News 

Augsburg succumbed to a 2-0 defeat away at league leaders, Bayern Munich, in their last league outing, back in March. That defeat was Augsburg’s fourth loss in five matches, and they have won just once since the league resumed in January – a dismal run of results that led to coach, Martin Schmidt getting the sack. 

Augsburg are 14th on the Bundesliga table with 27 points from 25 matches, and they are just 5 points above the relegation zone. Fuggerstader, with 36 goals so far, are the eighth best attacking outfit in the league, but it is their form in defence that is sure to have been giving new manager, Heiko Herrlich sleepless nights. Augsburg have conceded a whopping 52 goals in the league so far, a figure that is comparable to those of the relegation threatened sides. 

That said, Augsburg have played some of their best league football this season in front of home fans, and it is no wonder that their sole league win this year has come at home. Home games featuring Augsburg tend to be a highly entertaining affair, with the 12 matches held at WWK arena witnessing 45 goals so far.

Wolfsburg drew their second league match on the bounce when they were held to a goalless draw by title hopefuls, RB Leipzig in their last Bundesliga outing. Die Wolfe’s overall form remains impressive though, and their last six league encounters have ended in three draws, and three wins – a stark contrast to their inconsistent displays in the first half of the season. 

With both Freiburg and Hoffenheim hot on their heels for the final European qualification spot, Wolfsburg have to maintain their form to ensure they compete with Europe’s elites next season. Die Wolfe are currently 7th on the log, with 36 points from 25 matches, and are in vantage position to qualify for Europe ahead of the chasing pack.

Augsburg vs Wolfsburg Predictions

Augsburg have the home advantage in what is sure to be an intriguing fixture, but it is left to be seen whether Wolfsburg can pick up on their impressive pre-covid form. One thing you can expect to see though, is goals, with ten of Augsburg’s home league games featuring three or more goals, and Wolfsburg’s last four away trips have involved nineteen goals. Wolfsburg do know how to play against Augsburg, having come out victorious in two of their last three encounters, and they have to be considered slight favourites to nick the win in this one.
