Augsburg

Augsburg vs VfB Stuttgart

, KO: 19:30 May 10, 2024, WWK Arena
VfB Stuttgart

VfB Stuttgart travel to Augsburg for a Friday night Bundesliga fixture as they look to maintain their recent good form. Augsburg have been out of sorts lately and should be no match for a Stuttgart side playing with confidence at the moment.

With little to play for at the moment, Augsburg's season appears effectively over as they seem to just be going through the motions. They were thrashed 5-1 at Borussia Dortmund last time out, their fourth defeat in the last five matches.

Friday’s clash being their last home fixture of the season, Augsburg will be keen to end things on a high. Jess Thorup’s men have lost just once in their last seven home matches, although that defeat came in their previous fixture at WWK Arena as they were beaten 3-0 by Werder Bremen.

Stuttgart were in fine form in their previous Bundesliga fixture as they claimed a 3-1 victory over Bayern Munich. Sitting two points off second place, they will be looking to leapfrog the Bavarians, which appear to be distracted by the Champions League.

Sebastian Hoeness’ men have a decent record on their travels, winning four of their last six away matches. However, they often struggle at the back, conceding four goals in their last two fixtures on the road.

How the bookies view it: Smart money should be on Stuttgart

Stuttgart have the upper hand among the bookies and are priced at 10/11 by bet365 to claim the win. Augsburg are considered outsiders with a home win valued at 13/5 by Paddy Power while William Hill is offering odds of 16/5 for a draw.

Recent head to head: Recent meetings have gone Stuttgart’s way

Stuttgart are unbeaten in six of the last seven matches against Augsburg, claiming five wins in that run. They also ran out 3-0 winners in the reverse fixture back in December.

Players to watch: Undav and Guirassy should carry the fire power once again

Deniz Undav and Serhou Guirassy were both on target in the reverse fixture and will be the ones to watch for Stuttgart. Undav has 18 Bundesliga goals and is priced at 26/25 by Unibet to score anytime while Guirassy’s 25 goals has him at 10/11 with bet365 in the same market.

Augsburg have their own attacking threat with Ermedin Demirovic, who has 15 Bundesliga goals this season. The forward is priced at 21/10 by Unibet to find the net on Friday.

Probable lineups

Augsburg have no new injury problems and may stick to the team that featured at Dortmund. Stuttgart could make a few changes with midfielder Jeong Woo-Yeong likely to be handed a start after scoring off the bench last time out.

Augsburg: Koubek, Gouweleeuw, Uduokhai, Bauer, Mbabu, Breithaupt, Maier, Pedersen, Vargas, Tietz, Demirovic
Stuttgart: Nobel, Ito, Rouault, Stergiou, Anton, Yeong, Stiller, Karazor, Llewelling, Undav, Guirassy

Anything else catch the eye? Leaky defences to offer up scoring opportunities

Augsburg and Stuttgart have been unconvincing at the back lately and should offer up goals on Friday. There were over 4.5 goals in Augsburg’s previous fixture and a repeat is priced at 13/5 by BetVictor while over 2.5 goals is valued at 11/10 with bet365.

Serhou Guirassy has opened the scoring 11 times this season and could be backed to grab the first goal on Friday at 10/3 by bet365.
