Augsburg vs Wolfsburg Prediction & Betting tips
Neither FC Augsburg nor VfL Wolfsburg have won a competitive game since February. This is not only to blame for the recent crisis, but also for a weak March. The wolves only got two points from the last two league games and experienced a bitter setback in the battle for the European starting places. For the Fuggerstädter it suffered four losses from the last five games in the top floor of German football.
This makes the question of who gets the better restart when the 14th of the current table receives the current seventh in an empty WWK arena. Which bookmaker near Augsburg against Wolfsburg offers the best odds can already be found in the betting comparison.
After all, in Augsburg against Wolfsburg, the forecast must take into account that the FCA only took a single point from the last five league games and, in direct comparison with VfL, could not win any of the last four clashes.
However, after the time of waiting, the cards are shuffled to a certain extent. The chances of the home side gaining points are all the better, especially since goal-getter Wout Weghorst is not available to guests due to a yellow card suspension.
At FC Augsburg, the clocks are literally reset to zero. On March 8, 2020, the Fuggerstadt team played their last competitive game in which there was a 0-2 away defeat at Bayern Munich under Martin Schmidt. A failure too much that cost the Swiss the job.
Even before the crisis brought the Bundesliga to a standstill, the club leadership installed an interesting successor, Heiko Herrlich, which was already quite successful at Bayer Leverkusen, under which the trend reversal should succeed. Only that the 48-year-old has so far only been able to test his ideas under extreme conditions.
After a few training sessions, Heiko Herrlich, who was only able to work with his team in the past two weeks, was over again. However, the fact that the momentum of the coaching change has already evaporated due to the long forced break does not have to be the case.
In Augsburg against Wolfsburg, we take into account in the tip on the double chance 1X the effect that the defeat series and coaching change could now bring with it. After all, after three defeats in a row and only one point from the last five Bundesliga games, the team is all the more eager to make the turnaround in the crisp remaining season by the end of June.
It is all the more curious that the new coach in question has to wait a little longer for his first assignment after the 66-day break. On Thursday Herrlich announced that he had violated the contact restrictions and therefore neither lead the team training on Friday nor sit on the bench on Saturday.
With all the chaos, the Bavarian Swabians benefit from a decisive advantage: The FCA is by no means condemned to victory, but despite the miserable yield in February and March, it still has a little love interest. Fortuna Dusseldorf is now six points ahead of 16th.
Because the wolves, on the other hand, need a threesome with the Fuggerstädter, so as not to get sidelined in the fight for Europe, the pressure clearly lies with the guests, against whom the delightful selection in the absence of the new coach should be motivated.
Finally, the defender Felix Uduokhai on loan celebrates a reunion with his former employer, against whom he naturally wants to prove himself all the more. The entire Augsburg team also has a special account with the wolves.
Pretty much a year ago, on the 34th day of the preseason, there was a 1: 8 away defeat at the Lower Saxony for the red-green-whites, for which some players still want to reciprocate.
The wolves remained unbeaten in the top floor of German football in March and were able to boost their small series to six games in a row without defeat. Before the involuntary break, however, the wolves didn’t really spill glory.
There have only been two draws in the Bundesliga recently, which means that the gap to a starting position for the Champions League has increased to twelve and to a starting position for the Europa League by one point. And speaking of the Europa League: there will probably also be a stop in the round of 16 after the 1: 2 home defeat against Shakhtar Donetsk, which was in the last competitive game of the wolves on March 12, as soon as the competition is allowed to continue.
Accordingly, the Lower Saxony are now facing pioneering weeks, because especially in the remote duel with the Schalke miners, who are facing the district derby on Saturday, only victory in Augsburg really counts. Finally, BVB made a guest appearance with the wolves before going to Leverkusen just three days later.
It is all the more bitter that, of all things, for the first and supposedly easiest task – at least against Augsburg against Wolfsburg the bookmakers’ odds are crystal clear towards VfL – several important players are missing. Yannick Gerhardt, Josuha Guilavogui and Ignacio Camacho are all injured.
As if that weren’t bad enough, coach Oliver Glasner also has to do without his goalkeeper. Wout Weghorst, who scored eleven of the only 34 Wolfsburg goals of the season before the Corona break, saw the fifth yellow card in the 0-0 win against RB Leipzig and is missing in this away game.
This is all the more tragic, since not only the general goal of Lower Saxony has so far left much to be desired, but after a long time nobody comes after the Dutchman. With only four goals this season, Renato Steffen is actually the second most successful Wolfsburg player in the current season.
Overall, the green-whites can still be trusted to score points in the WWK arena. After the long break it will certainly not be easy for VfL to kidnap the desired three points from a motivated opponent.
