Wolfsburg to get the better of Augsburg

On Saturday afternoon, Wolfsburg host Augsburg at the Volkswagen Arena, as the home side looks for a win to keep alive their hopes of sealing a top-six spot.

Wolfsburg are currently seventh place in the Bundesliga table. The Wolves still have a chance to seal a Europa League spot for next season. However, they need sixth-place Eintracht Frankfurt to lose their final game of the campaign at reigning champions Bayern Munich.

A 3-0 defeat at Stuttgart last time out in the Bundesliga ended a three-game unbeaten run in the German top-flight for the Wolves. The defeat could well prove fatal to the home sides European hopes.

Wolfsburg recent home form in the Bundesliga has been good, as the Wolves are unbeaten in six matches on home soil in the German top-flight, having recorded four wins and two draws. The home side has also scored at least twice in four of their last six home matches.

The Wolves have suffered just one defeat in their last five meetings with the visitors. They will be confident of continuing that run on Saturday.

Augsburg head into this game on the back of a 4-3 home defeat against Hertha Berlin. The defeat means that the visitors have failed to win in their last three league games, having lost twice and drawn once.

The visitors recent Bundesliga games have been high-scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in seven of their last eight matches.

Augsburg have a poor recent away record in the Bundesliga, winning just once in 11 matches. However, the visitors have taken four points from their last two top-flight matches on their travels.

Augsburg have struggled for goals on their travels in the German top-flight, having failed to score in five of their last seven matches.

Forebet predicts that Wolfsburg will record a victory in a low-scoring clash, that may be enough to give the Wolves a European spot for next season.
