Competition: Bundesliga

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 3/4 @ 888sport

In what could prove to be another lively Bundesliga showdown on Friday night, Augsburg will welcome Stuttgart to the WWK Arena.

Starting with the hosts, while Augsburg might open Friday’s contest at the WWK Arena holding a five-point buffer over the drop zone, Enrico Maaßen’s men will be firmly looking over their shoulder. Last seen putting in a nightmare first-half display away at RB Leipzig when getting hit with a 3-2 loss, the Bavaria-based outfit have now failed to win any of their last five Bundesliga appearances. With their extended struggle highlighted by a 3-1 drumming at home against Koln on April 8th, the one-time Borussia Dortmund coach has seen his side gain a reputation for some rather glaring defensive struggles. Marking their return from March’s international break with a 2-2 draw away at Wolfsburg, Augsburg have recorded just a single domestic clean sheet since the start of February. It should also be noted, Friday’s hosts have seen each of their last six straight Bundesliga appearances finish with both teams finding the net.

As for the visitors, although Stuttgart might still find themselves battling it out in the bottom-three, Sebastian Hoeneß’s side have picked up some recent momentum. Last seen snatching what was a stunning 3-3 draw at home against Borussia Dortmund, Die Roten have lost just one of their four domestic appearances since returning from March’s international break. Along with punching their DFP Pokal semi-final ticket earlier in the month, the former Hoffenheim boss has also seen his side find a clinical edge in the final third. Claiming an action-packed 3-2 win away at Bochum on April 9th, Stuttgart have bagged six goals in back-to-back top-flight matchups. In a showdown that tends to produce plenty of chances, neutrals could be treated to another enjoyable affair from the WWK Arena. It should be highlighted, with Friday’s opponents seeing each of their last five meetings finish with both teams finding the net, we are backing a similar outcome here.

Bet: Both teams to score at Augsburg vs Stuttgart 3/4 for Friday’s Bundesliga battle @ 888sport
