Stuttgart are predicted to emerge victorious since Augsburg haven’t won against Stuttgart in their last 4

Stuttgart are predicted to emerge victorious since Augsburg haven’t won against Stuttgart in their last 4 H2H matches in the league. Stuttgart won five of the last 7 head-to-head meetings.

Augsburg, on their part, have been inconsistent on home soil, suffering 3 defeats in their last 8 home games across all competitions. They won 3 and drew 2.

Seeking to climb above Bayern Munich into second place in the Bundesliga table, Stuttgart travel to WWK Arena to face top-seven hopefuls Augsburg on Friday night.

Die Roten are looking to complete a league double over Die Fuggerstadter after winning 3-0 in the reverse fixture at MHPArena back in December.

After narrowly avoiding relegation last season, Augsburg have since made considerable improvements this term and looked to be on course to secure at least a Europa League qualification spot earlier this year.

However, their top-six hopes have suffered a significant blow following a run of four defeats across their last five Bundesliga matches, including last weekend’s heavy 5-1 loss at Borussia Dortmund.

Die Fuggerstadter were three goals down inside the opening 29 minutes before Ruben Vargas pulled one back. However, the glimmer of hope that they had for a miraculous comeback quickly evaporated, as Marco Reus added a fourth for BVB in the 34th minute, before Youssoufa Moukoko completed the rout midway through the second half.

Jess Thorup’s men have subsequently slipped to ninth in the Bundesliga table and sit six points behind the top six with only two games remaining. A top-seven finish – which would guarantee a Europa Conference League playoff spot for next season – remains a realistic target for Augsburg, though, as they sit just two points behind seventh-placed Freiburg.

Having said that, ending the season on a high could prove challenging for Augsburg, as they have won just two of their last 11 Bundesliga meetings with Friday’s opponents Stuttgart and will enter their final match of the campaign as underdogs against unbeaten champions Bayer Leverkusen.
