Wolfsburg will once again be aiming for the top
Wolfsburg are playing a solid season and want to keep up this impression. To do so, however, they will have to win a game or two in the final spurt of the season. The Wolfsburg vs. Augsburg forecast of the bookmakers shows that the hosts have an advantage in this match.
Wolfsburg are favourites for the match, with the odds clearly pointing in the direction of the home side. Especially individually, the Lower Saxons should have clear advantages. The task will be to use these and bring them onto the pitch.
After an international match, it is never 100% clear how the rhythm has suffered. In any case, since Augsburg have fluffed repeatedly of late, especially away from home, our Wolfsburg vs. Augsburg tip is that the hosts will win the game.
Wolfsburg – Statistics & current form
Wolfsburg are playing a very decent season in the Bundesliga, but have also had to deal with an interim low. The home side go into the final spurt in seventh place, two points off sixth place and seven points off fourth. A good series at the end and there is definitely the possibility that Wolfsburg will still make it into the Europa League. Coach Niko Kovac’s team definitely has to beat Augsburg.
For the Wolves, Augsburg are a welcome guest. Wolfsburg have not lost to Augsburg at home five times in a row, and their goal conceded statistics against no team are as good as against the Fuggerstädter. This is encouraging, even if the last four home games were not won, but admittedly there were also good opponents like FC Union or FC Bayern.
Just before the break, Wolfsburg celebrated a lacklustre 1-0 win in Stuttgart, but it was important for the standings and morale. The team doesn’t really need much to be even higher up the table. A classic nine-man who scores regularly is only theoretically in the line-up. No player has scored more than six goals.
Wolfsburg often play to nil
Another point about Wolfsburg is the defence. Ten times the Wolves have played to nil in the Bundesliga, which is a very good value. In the last five games, however, there have only been two games without conceding a goal, both of them away from home. At home, they have conceded goals in four consecutive games, three times even two or more.
It is also interesting that the home record is somewhat weaker than the away record. Although on average only 0.2 points separate the Wölfe’s home games from their away performances, such a record is unusual. Against Augsburg, they will definitely start the final offensive, but the programme still has Leverkusen, Mainz, Dortmund, Freiburg and some relegation candidates in store. It will not be easy.
The individual superiority combined with Bayern’s away weakness, which will be addressed, ensures that before the Wolfsburg vs Augsburg match our prediction is that the hosts will win.

Augsburg – Statistics & current form
Augsburg FC still have to squint with one eye on the bottom. 28 points won’t be enough to keep them in the class. Seven to ten points should still be earned. Coach Enrico Maaßen knows this, too, who brought his team to a good level and developed a few things this season. However, not necessarily in terms of football, there is a need to catch up here.
No team plays fewer passes than Augsburg and no team has such a weak passing rate. As a result, many things remain coincidental and many second balls are relevant. This plays into Augsburg’s favour, especially with strong home teams. This is also the reason for their weakness away from home, where they recently suffered five defeats in a row.
“We have already scored a few points away from home. Of course, we want to take something with us to Wolfsburg now to end the issue,” appealed coach Maaßen before the game. He added: “Wolfsburg is a very good team. We need a top performance and must be consistent in our finishing!”
Augsburg fight against the series
Not only have there been five defeats in a row away from home, but also eight games in a row without a win. Augsburg are fighting against this streak, playing only 1-1 in front of their home crowd before the break against Schalke. Against an often well-organised Wolfsburg team, FCA must also find defensive solutions, as no team allows more shots than the visitors.
In addition, Augsburg have conceded twelve goals in their last six league games and have generally conceded three or more goals seven times this season. And away from home, the team has been in a bad way lately, which is why our value tip before the Wolfsburg vs Augsburg match is that both teams will not score in this match.

Wolfsburg – Augsburg Direct comparison / H2H-Balance
Wolfsburg and Augsburg have faced each other directly in 25 matches so far, with the odds relatively even. Wolfsburg won nine games, FCA eight and eight games ended in a draw. This was also the case in the first leg, which ended 1-1. In the pre-season, however, there were two home victories. This time, the odds between Wolfsburg and Augsburg also seem to be most in favour of the hosts.
Wolfsburg – Augsburg tip
Wolfsburg go into the clash with Augsburg as favourites and are also clearly leading in some statistics. The Wolves are generally relatively stable, but have had problems in home games against top teams recently.
Augsburg’s away record, however, is completely disastrous in comparison. Therefore, ahead of the Wolfsburg vs Augsburg match, we play the betting odds on the hosts to win.
