Augsburg vs Wolfsburg Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Augsburg host Wolfsburg as the Bundesliga gets back underway on Saturday. Augsburg have a new manager but their suspect defence is expected to continue leaking goals at WWK Arena.

Augsburg Form


Augsburg were on a poor run of form before the coronavirus shutdown. They had lost their previous three matches that saw manager Martin Schmidt sacked and replaced by Heiko Herrlich.

Augsburg lost 2-0 at Bayer Leverkusen and suffered a 3-2 home defeat to Borussia Monchengladbach despite Alfred Finnbogason’s late goal. Their last match was a 2-0 defeat at Bayern Munich where they had 26% possession.

Wolfsburg Form


Wolfsburg won four straight matches in February. They won 3-2 at Hoffenheim and 4-0 at home against Mainz in the Bundesliga and got past Malmö in the UEFA Europa League Round of 32.

The Wolves’ form tailed off before the break, a 2-2 draw at Union Berlin followed by a 0-0 home draw against Leipzig. Their last match was a 2-1 home defeat to Shakhtar Donetsk in the Europa League. 

John Anthony Brooks equalised after heading home a Josip Brekalo corner but it wasn’t enough against the Ukraine club.
